My Year in Craft..... and a Merry Christmas to all



After a gigantic lead up to Christmas..... there's only one more sleep.
I hope Santa has checked his list and made sure that my name is on it somewhere - I'm sure I've been nice!
My presents are packed, and now I just need to make a potato salad to take with me tomorrow.

I'm sitting here waiting while a nice man installs my brand new security door out the front, which means that I'll be able to use my doorchook to hold the heavy door open, and a nice breeze can drift in and cool the house down.

I saw this cute little meme over at Northside Makers:

1. In my twelve months of crafting, my crafty self made all these... I've made so many things in the last twelve months that there is no way that I could count them all - brooches, handbags, aprons, shorts, pants, skirts, dress-ups, bookmarks, lanyards, keyrings, chefs hats, cushions, refashioned garments...etc etc

2. If my year was a colour it would be... I can't just choose one - it has to be the combo of red, pink and orange.

3. This year I spent way too many craft hours... dreaming when I could have been doing

4. This year I wish I'd had more craft hours for... making things for myself

5. My proudest craft moment of the year was... when I saw something that I created in an actual retail shop!

6. My biggest craft disaster was... there were really quite a few, but the ones that come to mind immediately are my Mookah challenge softie, and my upside down butterfly.

7. This year I had stalls at/visited this many markets... I ended up having stalls at 12 markets and visiting quite a few others too.

8. My most enjoyable market was... I always love the Made'n'Thornbury market, and the Northside Makers market was great, and Daylesford was fab too!

9. My best handmade purchase/present/swap/acquisition was... Oh dear, how can I choose? My waist tells me that I've frequented the Melbourne Epicure stall quite a bit, and my jewellery drawer contains quite a lot of Finki creations, and my wall has quite a bit of Tinniegirl art.

10. After this year I swear I'll never again... sign up for an outdoor market in the middle of winter

11. Next year I'm determined to... have more fun and make some skirts for myself

12. But I'll probably do this instead... procrastinate

I want to wish everyone a very very Merry Christmas. I haven't been able to make my way around blogland to comment personally as my wireless broadband could quite easily be mistaken for dial-up this week.
I'm not sure whether I'll be blogging right through, or taking a little break.... I'm leaving it to fate to decide.

'til then.....
