2014 in Review

Did I really get any crafts finished this year? I don't feel like I finished very many crafts. 
First, I made a hat for hubby. 
 Then I finished my Barn Jacket.

I finished stitching Love by Little House Needleworks. This is still a WIP that needs to be made into a tiny pillow or something.
 I made this infinity scarf for myself.
 and this one too.

 Another scarf because I loved this yarn.
 I made this bowl to use up some really stiff and scratchy craft yarn. It now resides in my craft room.
I finished stitching this Little House Needleworks pattern also. It still needs to be framed.

I finally finished quilting and binding this Peanuts Christmas quilt. My daughter had it for the holidays this year.
 I needed a quick craft, so plastic canvas coasters fit the bill.
 This little Thanksgiving hand towel took longer to stitch than it should, but I was pleased with the outcome. I will have it to use next year as I finished it after Thanksgiving.
Finally, just in time for Christmas, I finished this apron.

Now for my WIPs that will extend into 2015.

Mom's vest now has its buttonband sewn on, but I haven't taken a picture. I need to cast on the buttonhole band, knit around the armholes and add a collar. It should be finished soon.
I would really like to finish my table runner asap also. This is just for me. I would like to start on a jelly roll quilt, but I want this project finished first.
Large Cross-stitch #1 is a long term project. I would love to be able to complete a page a month, but that will be too much pressure. Maybe I will aim to complete a page every other month. 
 This is another long-term project. My mom started it, I frogged it and now it is stalled in favor of other projects. I am sure I will pick it up when the whim strikes me.
 My Rose Granny Squares are also a long term project. I have no particular plan for these so I just pick them up when I need a portable project.
Okay, I feel much better now. I finished plenty and have much more crafting in my future.

Happy New Year!
