Crochet 2014 (my makes this year)

9 blankets made this year 2014!!


I hope you are enjoying the last day of 2014, it is hard to believe another year is almost over, 
I think it is true what they say about time speeding up as you get older, 
this year seems to have gone very quickly!

  Anyway, the end of the year is a good time for reflection, so I decided to do a little crochet review of 2014 to look back and see what I actually got made and completed this year - there was more than I expected!  It seems 2014 was quite a productive year crochet wise, even if I often felt like I was not achieving much! 
It was fun putting them together into collages, (done in Picmonkey).  
So here you have it, my crochet year in pictures!

......there were lots of washers, flowers, interesting motifs and a little bit of knitting too! .....

......there were stamps, booties, bottles and buntings.........

....there were jar covers, puffy flowers, bigger booties and baubles too!  ....

It has been a good year around here, I hope 2015 keeps up the positive vibe, I have a lot to be thankful for and I really enjoy sharing bits of my little day to day life on this here blog. 
Thank you for letting me share my  love of crochet, craft and colour with you all, the crafty community on here is very inspiring and I am glad to be a tiny part of it too! 

Have fun tonight, we are seeing the New Year in with friends, eating and drinking and having fun, 
I am sure we will have a lovely night, I hope you do to! 

As my son said to me this afternoon as he left for a party, "See you next year Mum" haha... 

Happy New Year to you all, I hope all your dreams come true in 2015!

Talk to you all next year!! ;)

  16. Your crocheting is such a delight Julie! I Happy New Year, and may it hold plenty of fun, colour and happiness!

  17. Hi Julie!
    Your son stole my line! hehehehe Funny how you felt like you hadn't made much because during the year I was consistently amazed and (a little bit envious) of how much you managed to do! Do you think the fact that you made so many 'multiples' affected your perceptions (e.g. squares, washers, bunting etc.) I don't think I have ever seen so many colourful baby shoes in one place! Beautiful and happy! You certainly created a lot of stock for the markets and congratulations on your success there. May your productivity and energy continue in 2015. Thank you for letting us enjoy your creations on your blog and also for your generous giveaways. I still enjoy 'Stanley' every week and. it has been a pleasure to get to know you better. Cheers, Jodie xx
