2019 Wrap Up

Happy New Year!

It is time for the annual summary of projects! It was productive year! I had 38 (I think??) finishes. Of those, about 6 were carry-overs from 2018 or earlier (including the Victoria Sampler Heirloom Nativity and the Snowflower Diaries Joyful World Calendar) and the rest were new starts. Of course they were almost all Smalls but that’s what I can manage in this season of life!! I started 3 things (again, I think??) in 2019 that I didn’t finish-can you even remember what those are? I will share them at the end! And now for the photos!

Three Just Nan Critters

Pin cushions and pin keeps and pillows galore!

Really, if you want to know the names of any of these without going back through the blog, just ask in the comments!
This little set was a gift so is not in my family photo. 🙂

Ornaments, all of which were FFO’s. I was astonished to discover that I made no Mill Hill ornaments this year!

Framed projects!

The theme was “bees” I guess!

Projects that need to be framed or finished: I received money for framing for Christmas so I will be getting some of these finished for display very soon. I made you a little flip book video! Just click this link and it should pop up:

And last but certainly not least, two big projects finished and ready for their next steps, a professional frame for Heirloom Nativity …

and the finishing touches and border on Joyful World.

How satisfying to see my stitching year all in one place! I’m going into 2020 with only a few old WIPs: the Faby Reilly biscournu, the Gigi R Peacock Initial, and the Frosty Knotgarden from Chatelaine. Looks like a lot of blue is in my 2020!

And then there’s my Bathya (pronounced Bath- I -Ah) workshop project, which I intend to start in earnest this year.

And there may be one or 2 others that got a couple stitches into a start and then were put aside. I’ll dig through my basket and see what’s in there when I clean things up this weekend. Thank you for visiting my blog and a big thanks to those who encourage me throughout the year with your comments! I’m always delighted to see I have anyone reading and commenting my blog!

  1. I like the idea of collecting together all of your work for the year, and it seems yours was very successful! Good luck for your blue and Bathya 2020. 🙂

  2. The Smalls SAL definitely worked for you! So many gorgeous Smalls and beautifully fully finished too.

    The Nativity Sampler is the crowning glory of the year!

    Looking forward to seeing the Chatelaine and the reversible Sampler this year.

  3. Looks like you had an awesome 2019, so many beautiful pieces. I love the blue pieces but I really love the critters, they are adorable. May 2020 be just as productive if not more!
