2017 - my sewing year in numbers

This year has been more productive than last year and finished quilts actually make an appearance in my annual round up. Again, small and quick projects feature quite strongly and for some projects, a needle and thread has been replaced by glue and a brush. I've started a new EPP project (Lucy Boston's Patchwork of the Crosses), but progress has been slow and I have only got as far as chosing the fabric for the linking blocks, and have not started going through my Liberty fabrics for the main blocks.

Not too much fabric has been added to my stash this year, and now Standfast & Barrack no longer sell Liberty lawn in their factory shop, I can't see my Liberty stash increasing much in 2018. I did buy a few dressmaking patterns and fabrics this year, so perhaps some garments will appear in next year's montage.

In summary, this is what I have achieved this year:
  • 6 spotty coasters sewn
  • 5 boxes/cases repurposed and covered in Liberty fabric
  • 4 quilts finished
  • 2 garments refashioned
  • 1 mini quilt stitched
  • 1 cushion made and gifted
  • 1 insulated lunch bag designed and created
  • 1 bag customised with Liberty EPP
  • 1 replacement iPad case completed
  • 1 peek-a-boo pouch made
  • 1 new EPP project started

  1. What a creative year! I think my favourites are the Liberty-covered boxes/cases, but I suspect a lot of people say that! All the best for 2018
