|A selection of blocks made for bees!|
This past year, I have joined swaps for the first time, and joined bees for the first time. I have made some lovely bloggy/online friends, and met up IRL with the lovely Lucy. She is so ready to pop, I do not know how she is still standing!
|The number of bags made this year is astonishing!|
I have been introduced to box bottoms, and varieties of zippy finishes.
My pocket making skills have also been honed. And my under pressure sewing ordeals have been tried and tested!
So what is new?
I have been ultra extravagant, and bought a ticket to the FQ retreat next summer!
I am not usually good at gatherings, and I am very nervous about it- But May will be there, and Hadley- my most recent swap mama,- and Jan and Nicky and all sorts of other folks I would love to meet- I am sure I will love them all- but will a weekend be long enough to get to know them? All of them! I cannot list them all- too many!
But I will be brave, and go and I trust all will be well.
So here is looking forward to a new year, and lots more fun sewing!
