Looking Forward to 2015


1st January 2015

HAPPY NEW YEAR


These were my hopes and wishes for 2014-I don't do resolutions!!!


                                    health -good, apart from a touch of sciatica
   
                                    joyful family times- lots of these, so precious

                                    develop computer and embroidery skills -just a little!

                                    read 52 books!! read 58 

                                    try 2 new recipes every month- didn't do this although I have tried some new recipes

                                    learn to follow a crochet pattern- I made a crochet ripple lap blanket from a pattern

                                    cycle-no

                                    make a monthly 'to do' list!! -only in my head!!

I had a good year and am pleased I achieved some of my 'hopes and wishes'.


This year I want to continue on my creative journey and perhaps have an adventure!!

I have signed up to 15 mins creativity every day in 2015!!

52 book challenge

I have three courses booked:-

a day on mixed media

2 day White Work Sampler course at the RSN at Hampton Court 

 a week in Cornwall with Anne Griffiths, beach and books

 just a little excited!!

::::

I have the yarn bombing project this weekend, weather permitting....

and lots of unfinished work I want to stitch....


....my own dyed fabrics fused using the embellisher....


.....more dyed fabrics, quilted background and a variety of rectangles added, this was from a Be Creative prompt....


....more of my dyed fabrics and another Be Creative prompt...

....think I might use these for hand made book covers when I have added more stitching.


This has been woven on a very open weave hessian using mainly recycled sari silk strips, beach, sea and sky....


.....embellished fleece with stitches, threads and silk cocoons added, needs a lot more stitching, a wall hanging I think...


...lots to keep me occupied!

I made this card for the family at Christmas but was a little sad when I saw the cards as the white mother of pearl button eye had been crushed in the post!! 



I must remember to use padding when I post anything like this!

I was thrilled to see a photo of my work in the Oxford Summer School brochure....



I hope you all have a healthy, happy and creative 2015 and I would love to hear from you......
