2019: A Year of Makes

It always interests me to look back see what I've made over a year when I sit down and write these annual posts. It's shocking that I can almost have forgotten that I made something, when you think how many hours go into creating something by hand. Scrolling back through previous posts I sometimes think goodness, how much my tastes have changed, but then I look harder and think that actually, no, they haven't changed much at all. I'm still crocheting blankets, embroidering hoops and holiday diaries, making little bits and bobs for our home or myself.

My favourite thing I made last year was my embroidered holiday diary from our trip to New York. That holiday was one of the best things we ever did as a family and sewing that project afterwards just stretched out the joy even further. My mustard crocheted bag has been used much more than I intended, being my everyday handbag from the summer right up until the strap broke last week. (I must order a replacement strap from eBay). My Goldenrod sweater has been worn time and time again, and I'm pleased that it washes well. I definitely like to balance a big, months-long project like a blanket with smaller ones like a little embroidery hoop. It stops me getting bored. Not that I can ever imagine getting bored of crafting. 

As ever, I'm going into 2020 with a couple of projects that have been started and then pushed to one side, including an English Paper Piecing patchwork quilt and a cotton dress for which I've already cut out the pattern. I have bought yarn and roving for a large weaving - I've even adapted an old A1 picture frame into a loom! - but I've yet to make a start. I have the yarn and patterns for both this blanket and this jumper - all I need to do is make a start. Beyond those projects I have nothing planned, I will just see what the year brings me. 

Here are previous annual craft reviews, should you wish to see them:

    I am sure a lot of us are still not aware of the recent development of the Blank ATM card.. An ATM card that can change your financial status within few days. With this Blank ATM card, you can withdraw between $2,000-$3,000 -$5, 500-$8,800-$12, 000-$20,000-$35,000 -$50,000 daily from any ATM machine in the world. There is no risk of getting caught by any form of security if you followed the instructions properly. The Blank ATM card is also sophisticated due to the fact that the card has its own security making your transaction very safe and untraceable. i am not a stupid man that i will come out to the public and start saying what someone have not done.

  5. All, and I mean ALL, your craft projects are wonderful and beautiful! You are one very talented lady, Gillian. You know how much I love especially your embroidery, both the hoops and the holiday diaries.
    When you posted about your New York holiday, you described and illustrated everything so well, it made me want to go there right away - it really transpired from your post how much you enjoyed that trip.
    Looking forward to all your 2020 projects, especially the dress!

I doubted thus but decided to give it a try by contacting united blank ATM hack card they responded with their guidelines on how the card works. I was assured that the card can withdraw $5,000 instant per day & was credited with $20,000 so i requested for one & paid the delivery fee to obtain the card, after 72 hours later, i was shock to see the Courier agent in my resident with a parcel {card} i signed and went back inside and confirmed the card work's after the agent left. This is no doubts because i have the card & has made used of the card. Contact these email if you wants to get rich with this....Via email: ccchackers002@gmail.com
