Happy New Year!

Hi There,
Rangitoto - We climbed to the top New Years Day
Another beach day

I know we are 11 days into the New Year and wishing you all an exciting, creative, crafty, colourful lovely 2015 seems a little late.  But OH Well...HAPPY 2015! 

This New Year has started well in the craft cupboard.  I have managed to make a t-shirt for my Oldest Lovely and a pair of shorts for my Littliest Lovely.

Renamed - Clown Shorts
LL picked the fabric and trim.  I was all set to make a pair of pants until she piped up and said that she would rather have shorts with frills around the bottom.  So I followed the orders and made them how she wanted.  She loves them!  They were very satisfying to make as they took less than an hour.

Another project which had been sitting in a pile to be seen to was OL's t-shirt.  I had cut it out MONTHS ago but never quite got around to finishing it.  Well now I have! Another successful sewing project.  The fabric which is a stretching sport type fabric was a little tricky to stitch. I am not sure I would use it again but it was a good challenge.  I have another happy child!  Yay!

So far this year I have been busy sewing by day (when we aren't out in the sunshine) and crocheting by night.  It has been lovely having the overlocker and sewing machine out and getting creative and making things.  

The never-ending blanket is STILL going. The pile of yarn is slowly getting smaller. I am trying not to get too distracted with other things as it really needs to be finished this year. It has been three possibly four years in the waiting making. So this is it, this year IT WILL BE FINISHED.  Ha...Famous last words!  Have a look at a previous post: New Year 2014 .  I can tell you now nothing on that craft list got looked at let alone finished.  So those new years resolutions were a little redundant.  But look at what I made instead.

2014 Projects

A lot of critters and dolls were made and only one blanket.  

I wonder what path my crochet mind will take this year.  It should be an interesting one!

So to all you creative people out there who 'pop in' and read this crazy blog of mine...have an exciting, creative, crafty, colourful lovely 2015.
