Well, as usual, Christmas was busy, busy, busy. Extra busy because I like to make many of the gifts I give. I spent a lot of time quilting in 2016 and already feel as though I will be doing a lot of yarn crafts in 2017.
So, my goal again this year (didn't do so well with it last year), well, one of many, is to make regular posts here when I complete projects. Years ago (12-14 years ago) when I was drawing all of the time and had just started sewing and crocheting toys and baby items, I used to post regularly to Flickr, then I was posting to Facebook (had a page at one time (5-6 years ago) more recently I post on Instagram (as specgirl - follow me if you please ;) ). So, as I said my goal is to post here more regularly as a way to document my creations and maybe possibly organize and motivate myself a little better.
I have already started planning Christmas/birthday gifts for 2017... before I can start posting about those, here are some of the things I made in 2016 for Christmas gifts for family and friends:
Some commissioned projects I worked on during the Christmas season were:
Last but not least, I made some tooth fairy pillows and some pyjama monsters.
