As 2019 draws to a close it is time to look back and see what was achieved and what was not in the sewing room. Last year at the same time I did say that 2019 was going to be "go with the flow year" and see where my sewing takes me as I did not have any unfinished UFO's or WIP's to work on.
Looking back at the list that is on my sidebar most of my sewing has been for either the local hospital auxiliary stalls which included making childrens' aprons
, bibs and potholders etc
. Some of which can be seen below.
Or making library bags
, babies bibs and dresses for 6 year old girls
in Sri Lanka through the Network Heaven
project as well as aprons
for the workers in the orphanages. Some of those items can be seen below.
The one quilt that I did start and finish during the year for myself was the rainbow log cabin quilt
. Each month a colour was nominated and a block was made corresponding to that colour. It was a fun project to work on and I love the end result.
Other items made included a tote bag, snap top bags and a table topper
using the International Sisters block
The knitting needles were also dusted off and some beanies
One item on my to do list was to learn how to make a collage quilt but that did not happen. My quilting group is having a discussion about getting a tutor in over a weekend in the early part of 2020 so hopefully that will take place and it can be crossed off the list at the end of next year.
So what will 2020 bring in the sewing room. I see more charity sewing happening and of course I am very tempted to join in with the rainbow scrap challenge again. This is a good opportunity to use up all those ever increasing scraps that seem to just keep multiplying before my eyes.
I am taking part in the Winter Blues Blog Hop
in January and my project is taking shape - slowly but surely - and is on track to be ready by the 22nd January. Then there is always something to tempt me to take part in as I do some blog hopping and of course Pinterest is like going down a rabbit hole with all sorts of interesting ideas to have a go at. It will be interesting to look back at the end of year to see what caught my attention which is what the International Sisters block did with the 4 generations tabletopper being the result.
What are your plans sewing wise for the coming year? You can head on over here
