Projects 2023


My first finish of 2023 is a cute little scrappy table topper inspired by the 'Strippy Scrappy' quilt made by Linda Kemshall of Design Matters TV.

I am thrilled with how this turned out.


In February I didn't have much time for stitching but I did fill a few creative moments with Art Journal pages.  Here are a few of those that I finished....


March was also a busy month so again not much stitching was finished although I did start work on re-vamping an older project.


In April I finished a handmade/hand bound note journal.

I also finished a section of bunting for my daughter's wedding to be held in June.

I also attended a workshop by Liz Cooksey where I made a ornament.


In May I continued to make lots more bunting and finished re-vamping the older project I started to work on in March.

I also completed a couple of little watercolour paint projects.... such a lot of fun!


June was the month of my daughter's wedding and the birth of my third grandchild, so needless to say very little stitching or painting took place!


July was another busy month and no needlework projects were completed but I did finish a few more watercolour painting projects.


So far this month I have been working on some of the hand stitching on my latest wall quilts but I haven't finished them yet.  I have completed a few more watercolour painting projects.

I finished a few more watercolour paintings in August.  I like how they are progressing.


My only finished projects in September were also watercolour sketches, although I was working on an ongoing stitching project too.


This month also started with watercolour sketches as the first finishes.

I have now finished a textile art piece which is just waiting to be framed.

The last finishes in October were a few more watercolour sketches.  It is so much fun to complete these.


My first finish in November was framing up the wren textile art work.

I also stitched a small free machine embroidery piece at a Janet Clare workshop while on a retreat with my Quilt Group, Romsey Quilters. I am not sure how I am going to finish this piece off yet but the stitching is complete.

On the second day of the retreat we were able to work on our own projects and I managed to get this small wall hanging finished.

I also finished some little fabric boxes in November ready to fill with Christmas treats to gift.

My last finish in November was a cute little sock monkey who I have called 'Ringo'. I made him following a tutorial on YouTube by Kool Kooky Kreatures.


My first finish in December (and to be honest probably my last) was a snowman quilt.  This was started in a FMQ virtual class with Christina Cameli  It was a practise piece but I decided to finish it off as a small wall quilt.
