A Big Year...
There is always a sense of excitement and trepidation when one year ends and another starts, and in our household, this has never been more true.  2014 was on the whole a very good year for us, the birth of our beautiful second daughter really set the tone as a family year, and we really enjoyed a Christmas Day, just the four of us together. And in 2015 we'll be formalising our little family, and finally getting round to getting married.  
Alongside that, we have plans for a single storey extension too, to make best use of the garden, and move our lounge to the back of the house,

and plans for the baby to be baptised,
all before the end of August.  So you can see, lots going on this year!

With all that in mind, you'd think I wasn't expecting to fit in much else, but I have loads of things I want to sew this year, and finish off, so I will be making a big list to start me off, and give me something to aim towards :o).

First off, I want to get my WIP's down to 5 at any one time, it's currently about 10, with a few close to finishing, so with a bit of a push, I can knock these down by 2 or 3.

Things I want to sew/techniques to try in 2015
  • Sashiko/wholecloth project
  • A metal framed purse
  •  Moomin embroidery
  • Right Round pattern
  • Aviatrix Medallion Quilt
  • Another Sew Together bag
  • Double Goosed Pattern
  • Princess And The Pea Embroidery
  • Oakshotts Quilt
  • Doe Fabric Quilt
  • Basic understanding of EQ7
I think that may be enough to be going on with, it will be interesting to see how far along the list I am at the end of the year...
