Making Needles Fly - Christmas 2018

Where has the time gone?

Looking back over the year I have found very little time to keep up to date with my Ravelry projects page and my blog here. But I have enjoyed a very varied crafting year. Looking back to last Christmas I enjoyed making these socks by Dani of LittleBobbins podcast for our Christmas Eve Cast On.

Ellie of Crafthouse Magic had some great tutorials for owls and a Christmas tree and I had fun making them using some lovely fabrics I had bought in the summer at Cowslip Workshops.
This year I have been enjoying Vykky of WestGreenLoft Yarns' Advent Sock Along using her beautiful hand dyed yarn.
Earlier this year

I have been enjoying cross stitch again and have lots of projects on the go after discovering a whole new world of floss tube:

In the summer there was Tour de Fleece and I finished my set of 'seasons' from Hilltop Cloud:

 I started a cosy memories blanket to use up all the new minis I had been acquiring - this is a lot of fun but will certainly be a long term project:
Then there was the Flower Power Fund raising money for the work of the Marie Curie nurses and we knitted a pair of socks so that everyone on a Marie Curie ward would have a pair for Christmas Day:

 Another final flourish was the Little Box of Crochet Advent box and we made a series of decorations, great fun!

I enjoyed stitching with Nicki Franklin's The Stitchery Journal 2018 and went to a workshop which was such a lovely day:

At my quilting group we made these cute little quilts for the Linus Project for children:

And I finally finished our mystery quilt which I gave to my lovely son for Christmas:

And my Christmas Eve Cast On with Dani of Little Bobbins for this year was with this beautiful Nora Gaughan yarn for Jooles of Sew Sweet Violet which seemed perfect for Dani's new Twinkling Trees pattern:

Now I am off to plan out my crafting goals for 2019. Happy Crafting!
