My Year in Crafting 2016

I have been sewing and spinning and knitting for years, but this was my first year blogging everything I made.

The Best Thing I Made This Year

Without a doubt, my Advent Garland is the star of this year’s creations. The colors, the designs, everything about it makes my heart sing. I hope it will be part of my family’s traditions for the rest of our lives.

Reflections

Looking at the mountain of work I completed this year, I see how much time I have been able to carve out for making this year. I make room for knitting and sewing more naturally, other crafts only happen with concerted planning or as part of social crafting. Most of my projects are for myself, with my daughter as the next most common recipient. I work mostly with pink, green, and blue.

That wraps up my look back at my making in 2016. Are you pleased with what you made this year? What was your very favorite project?
