2007 - The Year in Review

2007 has been quite a year!

I went to many craft/fibery events like Maryland Sheep and Wool, Stitches East, a festival at the Textile Museum, a spinning event at the Mannings, I saw the YarnHarlot herself speak, and I went to Crafty Bastards in DC.

I got a spinning wheel, Sarah taught me to sew, made three quilts, knit my first sweater, knit my first lace shawl and learned to dye yarn from the master herself. I traveled to many places like Cancun, Key West, Jamaica, Cozumel, Cayman Islands, Las Vegas, New Orleans, Cape Cod, camping and Wisconsin (for a family reunion). John and I learned how to live with cancer, we made some new friends, lost some loved ones and saw the births of many new babies. Most recently - my dear friend Jolene's new son Joe!

Happy birthday Joe!

Birthday Boy Joe

What a great way to end the year. :)

I also had a birthday (yesterday) and now I'm 32! Time flies!


As a sort of tribute to this year - I put together a mosaic of most of my knitting that was completed in 2007.

And most of my sewing projects that were completed in 2007. I even got one mentioned in Craft Magazine (woohoo!)

2007 Sewing

It's been a great ride - I can't wait to see what 2008 brings!

Happy New Year everyone!

Happy New Year from me too! (A bit late, but the sentiment is the same.)

Which Craft mag issue? I get the magazine....I'm such a loser that I didn't notice "your mention"! Some friend I am! (Kicks self in butt).
