Recap of 2017

As the year came to a close, like many of you, I took inventory on what I completed over the last year. I really was quite busy sewing totes, pouches, purses, grocery bags...etc....  But I still managed a bit of time to dedicate to stitching. Some of my stitching accomplishments include:

Country Cottage Needleworks - Just Cross Stitch 2010 Ornament Issue

Victoria Sampler - Woodland Garden

Homespun Elegance - Bee Happy

Jenny of Elefantz Designs

Cathy Jean Designs - Buttercup Sampler

Bloom - Just Cross Stitch March/April 2011 issue

Birdhouse - Just Cross Stitch October 2007 Issue

The Drawn Thread - Easter Egg Sampler Kit

JBW Designs - Christmas Tree
There are others that I made some progress on, but not worth sharing at this time.

Something new to me last year was trying my hand at toy making and I think I did quite well....

Both are patterns from the Funky Friends Factory.  I had a blast making them and hope to do more this year.

2018 has started with a ton of stitching, but that will wait for another post.
