Looking Back at 2014

Jan from One Stitch At A Thyme mentioned that I haven't posted before and after pics for this year's projects. I will endeavor to correct that right now.

I've never had so many finishes in one year. I counted 10 finishes and I still have 5 WIPs. This year was a year of firsts for me.

I finished my first BAP, Peacock Tapestry.


I participated in my first SAL, the Smalls SAL, and found out I'm not cut out for those small projects. I also stitched my first Hardanger piece, which I really enjoyed. I will definitely be doing more Hardanger this year.

I started and finished Spirit of the Southwest.

I managed to finish two out of five Creative Festival courses.

But the thing I'm excited about is that I managed to finish my oldest WIP, Flower Patch.
Unfortunately I can't say the same about Bramble in the Rose. I haven't touched it since last year. I still have a few days before end of the year, so I might put in some stitches in it yet.

That's it for this year in review. I've already organized the kits for next year's projects, I just have to find time to take pictures of them. Lighting is really bad these days.


  1. Your work is beautiful. Thank you for posting all of your 2014 completions in one blog--it was a pleasure to read. I too am new to hardanger and love your little doily.

  2. So many gorgeous finishes! And so many huge projects too. I hope next year will be as good for you.

  3. I think you've done really well and deserve to feel proud.
    I'll do my post of this type on Thursday.

  4. Wow, your work is beautiful! I have WIPs like Bramble, stuff that just needs to be worked on. Peacock Tapestry is just gorgeous.
