I love it all: embroidery, canvaswork, quilting, crochet. So much to do, so little time.

2016 Year in Review

Hey Blog Buddies,

Hope all of you are having a fabulous holiday season.  The end of the year prompts many people to take a look back, and since Blogger has discontinued its Slideshow gadget (I kind of miss it), I thought I'd do a quick stitchy year in review, with a minimum of blathering.

When you look at them all together,
it seems like a lot.
I wish I could have done more.
I have so many projects in my stash
just waiting for their turn to be stitched.

I'll be back in a week or so
to show you what's on the
stitching horizon for 2017.

Have a happy and safe New Year.
Thanks, as always, for visiting.

So nice to see all your fantastic finishes! Whenever you show your PS alphabet I can't help thinking of that photo of the fabric hanging on your door.. wow!

Beth said...

Wow! What an amazing stitching year. So many wonderful pieces including amazing hardanger. I think though that I am in love with the Charlie Harper Bluebird. Something about the simplicity and the bright colors. Truly lovely. Happy 2017 from another Lefty!

Carol said...

I'm always blown away by the sheer volume and variety of your work, Pat--you do so many amazing pieces each year. Hard to pick a favorite, but this year, it may be Autumn Logs and Merry Merry. Such a cute little BOAF chart--I will have to look for that one :) Oh, and the PS alphabet--what can I say? Always beautiful and I do hope to start that myself when I retire!!

Wishing you and your family every happiness in 2017!
