Bandwagon, Let Me Jump on You

Click now for JiffNotes

I have never been one to do what all the cool kids are doing, but I found a freebie mosaic-maker (which has plastered its watermark all over the collages since I didn't want to pay for the "pro" version), so I thought I'd join in the fun of reviewing my 2013 finishes.

First off, sewing finishes.
Two boxy bags, a drawstring bag, and a pillow. Not great, but I don't sew regularly since I have no sewing room and I have to haul everything out every time I want to do anything.

Next, knitting finishes!
Much more impressive! Seven pairs of socks, two sweaters (!!!), three cowls, and a mitt. The socks are, of course, due to the fact that I joined the Cookie A Sock Club. Seven pairs out of a possible twelve (if I'd knit all the patterns) isn't too bad.

Finally, stitching finishes!
Well, that is...embarrassing. Pretty much all ornaments, there. One small silk gauze pin and the perforated paper "ornament" that will be finished as a cube, I think.

I hope to finish more stitching in 2014! Tomorrow I'll post about some SALs I'm taking part in that will hopefully help me to that goal!

I finished some stuff last year, for sure, but hopefully next year's stitching total won't be so depressing.

Lots of pretty stuff! They should pay you for displaying their watermark.. it's good advertising.

Have a great 2014!

Hey, a finish is a finish no matter how small! Here's to a great stitching year!

Gillie said...

Oh stop it, you did fine! Love everything but especially the knitting!

Picasa has a collage feature (and it's all free). You certainly finished more than I did!

You've done some beautiful work this year!

I love all of those FOs. You picked a good bandwagon to jump on. I love the collages. Picasa has a good free program too.

Quality, not quantity ;)

Gorgeous work!

(And I am definitely in the same boat for sewing...someday I will have a room!)

Very impressive, seeing it all laid out. Don't be too hard on yourself re: lack of stitching. All those Cookie socks took a lot of time. Her patterns are lovely but you can't just bang them out, you know?
Happy new year! :)

Val said...

Yeah, that's definitely more finishes than I got in 2013.

Here's hoping 2014 is better.

Looks like a good year of creative.
I've been meaning to make some boxy bags. They look like the perfect knitting project bag. Your knitting finishes are pretty impressive too
