Winter Stitching - December Summary

Hello ladies.  I hope you all had a great Christmas?  I got some fab crafty Christmas presents but it's dark now and I forgot to photograph them, so that will be a later post.  As I have nothing crafty to show you, I thought I'd do an update on my Winter Stitching List.

By the way, if the numbers are all over the place, it's because Blogger thinks it knows how I want my post formatting...

Lol, show off!(said in admiration for all the projects you've done) I don't think you're an apprentice any more :). I'll be interested to see the items you make for your nephew. I have some clothes sewing I want to do for the grandchildren.

I can't believe how much stuff you've made - I'm in awe! I hope they were all appreciated.
And I'm glad you are planning to make some things for yourself soon - you deserve it after all the making for other people!!
