Happy New Year, 2014!

And so ends another year and a great new year begins. We had a great time celebrating the winter holidays at Orlando. Kids had a blast at the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Legoland and Universals's Islands of Adventure. I loved the Wizarding World of Harry Potter the most :) Big Fangirl here hehe

I had a great sewing year as well. My 52 things list kept me going all year. I really like this format and will do it again this year. In the end, I ended up completing 71 sewing projects instead of the planned 52! Less knitting and quilting got done than 2012 but that's ok. Aanya still fits into the things I made her that year. She's such a skinny minny.

This year the goal is to do some more quilts and to make something for DH. He's never had anything sewn by me and that has to change now! Another goal is to make more things for me whether knitted or sewn. I really like carrying my handmade stuff around and it inspires me to create more.

A quick review of some of my favorite things from this year

Minnie Mouse dress. Pattern used: FooFoo Threads Josaphine Dress


Peak-a-boo Skinny Jeans pattern used to make jeans for Aanya.


Pinwheels Quilt

Frilly Frilly pattern used to create a stick horse

Halloween Dress


Bimaa Pullover


My lunchbag


Maxi dress

A

Ruffly knitted shrug


And, a diaper! We're all done with diapers since this summer and this was The Last Diaper I ever made. Also one of the prettiest, I think.


I'll get busy creating the new list for 2014 and add a tab at the top of the page. Thanks for visiting!

Great work Shalini! I love the Fairy Dress - I'll have to show that to my daughter. :-) Happy New Year to you and the family!
