I know I am a bit late wishing you a Happy New Year but, I have only just returned from visiting my family in the UK. It was lovely to see all three of my children, my granddaughter, my siblings and my parents!!
Since I got back into my sewing room, I have been organising myself ready for lots of new sewing projects for 2020. I like to keep a record of the projects that I have completed including swatches of the fabrics used and details of how I completed them. So, my first task was to close the file for 2019 and open some new files for projects I know I will be starting in 2020.
However, before I go any further with what I am hoping to start work on in 2020, perhaps I should show you the last couple of projects that I finished in 2019.
The second is a Japanese rice bag which I made by adapting a pattern designed by K Z Stevens. I made it for my daughter for Christmas, filling it with bees wax pellets and organic cotton fabric so that she can make some bees wax wraps to use. I really enjoyed making this bag and I have some more on my project list for 2020!! They were my final two projects for 2019. To see all my completed projects for 2019 you can visit my Projects 2019 page.
Also on my list of projects for 2020 is the BOM i-stitch-club project by Gail Pan. The January block looks gorgeous and I am looking forward to seeing the project take shape month by month.
I have started a new file for 2020 and as well as the two projects mentioned above, I have lots of other projects in mind for this year. I will add them to my file as and when I get started on them. One of them will be another baby quilt as I have another grand-baby expected for February! Better get started with that!!
