Looking back on the year's photos I see sewing projects started, finished, and still in progress. Knitted lace for people I love. There are parties with friends, visits with family, enjoyable days to myself. A fantastic free pattern haul, beautiful fabrics I'm excited to sew with, and decorating my home.
I just wish I had more energy to work on more of the projects that pile up in my notebooks. Perhaps the coming year will allow me more time and focus. I'm embracing hand sewing since I can relax in a comfy chair rather than sitting at the machine. An autumn leaf quilt that's an ongoing project might get its borders quilted, binding on, then gradually hand quilted over the autumn and winter.
Fittingly, Blogger pointed out their updated interface so I'm posting with it.
