Goodbye 2022!

As you probably know 2022 wasn’t the best year of my life, but I can say I will be saying goodbye 2022 with a varied range of emotions.

Saying goodbye to Clarke and Kenny was difficult, but I did find some comfort in trying a lot of new to me hand sewing projects:

I was able to keep busy joining in some challenges and Blog Hops:

My year wasn’t as productive as usual but I did have fun doing some pattern testing for some of my favourite designers and did finish most of the new projects I started. Ones I didn’t finish seem to be stuck in my To Be Quilted bins, but next year can only get better, right ?!? 😉

I fell behind reading, writing and responding to blog posts, but did manage to keep up with comments and my responses to them. I also lost track of my completed projects, but I know I was able to do a lot of charity quilting this year, kept up with all of my commissions and project deadlines (when I managed to accept a new project).

I am proud to say I managed to make several new on line friends through this blog and reading others. The support of the on line community kept me going through a very trying year. Your support, emails and comments really meant the world to me, so Thank You my friends. I’m sending a virtual hug to each and every one of you 🤗

As this post is going live, I am back at the studio. My longarm was calling with a commission needing to be finished and D needing help with a couple of chores. 😁

As this year comes to a close, I can say I’m looking forward to a year filled with a lot of sewing time, plenty of new projects, hosting To- Do Tuesday and perhaps a chance to meet some of you if and when we do some travelling this year.

I can only hope your year was great, your year ending is happy and healthy and 2023 brings you all prosperity, family fun, and so much more time to fondle fabric and keep on crafting. 🥳 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. It was a difficult year for you, but you handled it well. Your care and concern for your family and for D brought so much comfort to those you love. I’m glad you had pockets of sewing time to bring some comfort to you and a break from the weight of all the emotional stress. On to 2023 and hoping it brings you much joy!
