Looking back on 2013

Last year was a very creative year. It’s just too much to share here, so I choose one finished item for each month to share. In January I made a fabric card for Helga, the first birthday girl at Fibre Fever.
In February I made this zentangle for a challenge at I am the diva.
In March I made a fabric book page for Janny. Her theme was My face, I stitched a self-portrait for her.
In April my oldest daughter became a Master of Science. I made her this lucky doll from the book Gelukspoppetjes haken by Annemarie Arts.
In May I made a needle book for my father’s birthday, because he started to learn embroidery on paper.
In June I finished my first Work In Progress Wednesday project: 
my quilt Pot vol blomme.
In July I finished my long and short stitch sampler, a second project for 
In August I made this funny page in my altered book.
In September the theme for the ATC swap at Fibre Fever was owls. A great excuse to experiment with knitting.
In October I had a private swap with Anne. We made a quilt with a dimensional doll for each other. I made Hannah for Anne and she made Liese Lotte for me.
In November I finally finished the garden sampler for the June Sampler-along at &Stitches.
In December I added the last TAST stitches to my 9 x 9 inch Aida sampler.

    Wishing you lots of 'go' for 2014, too!
