2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 6,100 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

My 1st blogiversary! :)

Today I got a notification from WordPress that it is exactly one year since I registered as a WordPress blogger! Here is a selection of some things I have made or blogged about this year:

I’ve really enjoyed my year of blogging, I’ve made new friends, I’ve been inspired, and in particular, I’ve been pushed to do as much crafting as possible!

Retrospective – Trip Around the World Quilt

The second quilt I ever made was this “Trip Around the World” quilt, which I made for my sister’s birthday back in 2011. Her favourite colour is purple, and I wanted to work with solids so this was an easy choice to make!

It’s lap-quilt size, made with cotton solids, and Aborigine Dots fabric on the back. It was completely hand-pieced and hand quilted, and I JUST finished it in time for my sister’s birthday. I found this a lot easier to make than the first quilt I made, I had learned a lot with that process and was able to side-step some of the problems I had there.

I think this may actually be my favourite quilt project, I really wanted to keep it for myself! Do you have trouble giving away the things you make?
