All the Things I Finished in 2014

Finished Projects in 2014

Last year at this time, I pulled together a mosaic of all the tutorials I'd made in 2013, and I found that to be such a nice experience, I thought I'd do it again this year. But this time I wanted to focus on finished projects.

…And I'm so glad I did! I knew I'd been sewing a lot this year, but in no way did I realize I was getting so many things completed. In most other aspects, 2014 has sucked, so viewing it this way feels quite healing – if nothing else, I did a lot of making, and these 33 projects represent some serious hours of happy calm carved out of the gloom.

I'm not building a link list, for which I hope you'll forgive me. Some of these things are in my Tutorials page, some are in my online shop, some are in various magazines, and some are now residing with family and friends.

pushkin-new-yearWhatever 2015 has in store for all of us, I wish you lots and lots of making-time, in which you can savor the good events of your year and process the hard ones.

…And with that, I'm going to go make some more coffee and get out my sewing box. Cheers!

(Oh - and Pushkin wishes you Happy New Year in his most solemn way.)



Love your makes. What a beautiful creative year. Can'y wait to see what you do in 2015!

Honestly, I'm so impressed! What a wonderful keep track of one's productivity throughout the year (I'm guessing that most of us are more productive than we imagine). I have two "Pushkins" at home, and although I don't quilt, I am so impressed with your blog that I'm going to become a follower, so I can check in and be inspired throughout the year.

Wonderful accomplishments, and a year of fun obviously. Those PC ornaments! love.

Wow! That's a lot to accomplish in one year! I notice that your Mom hasn't posted since Christmas.. is she doing okay?
