I realised that I once again bought more patterns than I made last year so some of these are being carried over into 2016. 

I kinda feel I’m a bit late to the table with my 2015 review and 2016 plans but hey ho, I’ve been busy with work and life so here we are. 

Some quilting plans then; I’m still taking part in the Farmer’s Wife quilt-along. Confusingly there’s two running at the same time and I’ve kinda done blocks for both. Lots of tiny fiddly paper piecing, very different from how I usually work, enjoyable but slow. And I’ve ground to a halt, haven’t done any blocks for about a month now. I’ve got 10 I think.   

May have to get inventive with them as I’m not sure if I can carry on committing to more. I seem to have no selfish sewing time at the moment and am itching to start something new too. I still want to make the Gypsy Wife quilt and may have to use the blocks I have in there somewhere. I do like going off-piste!

  

I bought the Shimmer quilt pattern from CluckCluck Sew and have to make it. Isn’t it lush?  

And I still want to make my own Swoon…

This one was made by Gnomeangel, also of the Farmer’s Wife QAL:  

I bought so many PDF patterns, I really need to do an inventory and plan but for now I’m sticking to lusting over these paper patterns:    

   
 
And I want to make more bras!

Here’s to 2016. Let there be more time for sewing!
