2016 recap

Well, last year’s attempt at getting back into blogging didn’t quite go according to plan.  To be frank, my whole year didn’t go quite according to plan.  Nothing terrible happened to me but the year just seemed to fly by and I managed my time very badly indeed.  That said, I did 2 beginners blocks of flamenco dancing and also started silversmithing classes, both of which I really enjoy and hope to continue into 2017 and beyond.

Had great times in the kitchen, cooking up a storm, although still haven’t learned to decorate sugar cookies or make quite as many new dishes as I planned.

Beading took a bit of a back seat, with only 3 projects getting finished but have some new ideas and plans in the pipeline and I’d like to incorporate some of my silver work in with it once I develop my skills a bit.

I’ve been crocheting up a storm, it’s such a nice hobby to do on the couch, in front of the tv, on cold dark winter nights.

Again, I’ve failed badly at my attempt to dedicate more time to dressmaking.  I’m really mad at myself, as I love clothes and it is one of my ambitions to become skilled at making them.  I actually think I may be putting too much pressure on myself, so this year I aim to just chill and enjoy the process.

I’m about to embark on an embroidery sampler project, which I’m really looking forward to – I don’t know many stitches at the moment, so it will be a bit of a journey of exploration.  Can’t wait for my linen to arrive.

Anyway, enough chitter chatter, I have a ton of unfinished projects just begging to be completed.
