New Year, thoughts

So it is the first day of the new year.


DD1 decided she needed a shoulder strap for her bag, to go across her body.  So today she has a shoulder strap for her bag. Would have been simpler had I attached it before making the bag, but such is life. The main problem is, that I had very little thread let in the right colour.This little thread. Almost nothing.

It was enough, although I had to use the remnant of the bobbin thread to finish the last little bit, and a black bobbin underneath. This slightly offends my sense of propriety, but we can live with it.

And my son kindly voluteered to model his sister's bag.

Looks good on him?
Perhaps not. But I will try to make him the book bag he is after, sometime soon.











It seems to be the thing to do, to put up a mosaic of things done this year. And as I have been led through the process of mosaic making-thanks Laura- I thought I could join the club, and do one here.


So this year, this is some of what I have done:
I am amazed at how much there is, I really didn't think I had been so productive. And I am sure I would not have been nearly so productive without online encouragement from loads pf enthusiastic people.

So Thank You all of the encouragers, and the suggesters, and the others who have been so lovely and helpful, And thank you to the QAL type organisers, Fluffy Sheep and Leila, and others who I may not have QAL-ed with but have observed at a distance. I look forward to a year of more fun with fabric.
Is there treatment for this addiction? Do not give it to me, I am not ready to stop yet!

i have joined in with Lily's quilts for the small blog meet and fresh sewing day. See you there?

Nice work!! I'm pretty sure there's no cure but I agree it's way to fun to stop :)

Leanne said...

Your projects are all lovely! And you did well with the thread, it always seems there is loads of thread around until you need just a bit more. The bag is great!

Kelly said...

There is no cure for this addiction. Great projects this year and a fabulous son!!!!

I don't think there is a cure for the addiction.
Happy New Year!

Great job this year! And I have done the same with thread... using the bobbin as the main when I ran out with another color for the bobbin. Hey, it works right?

If there is a cure for the addiction, I don't want to know. You've sewn some beautiful things this year. I've been pleasantly surprised with how welcoming and encouraging the blogging community is. I love the bag your son is modelling. I'd love for you to link up this bag (and any others you've made) at the linky I have just for bags.... http://threadingmyway.blogspot.com/2012/01/threading-your-way-bags-and-totes-link.html

Good to meet up - I've only just discovered Lily's meet up. You've got so much done and it looks brill. A tutorial in photo mosaics would be very useful - I did a couple but they took ages - I could have been quilting!
Happy New Year - happy sewing.
