A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.

What I Made in 2008

Sometimes Life’s Greatest Joy
Comes From Simple Moments.

Well, here we are. Another year. A fresh start. New beginning. I don’t know why but the beginning of a new year always feels so free. So clean. I feel ready for change. This year is no different. I have been reflecting a lot lately on life and where God has me. Of course, that would be another post at my other blog; not here.

It’s that time of year again–it’s always fascinating to me to read up on resolutions others made the previous year and the New Year. I am certainly not one to set formal resolutions because life often ends up changing so much that what I was focused on at the beginning of the year might be totally irrelevant by the start of the next. Before dipping into my desires for fiber art adventure in the new year, I like to sum up what I made in 2008.

PHEW! That’s the wrap for 2008–a lot of short-row, fair-isle, patchwork, and lace experiment. A few projects (like Swifter Cozies) didn’t make it here due to miscategorizing in Flickr. A few WIPs started in 2008 will return over the next few months (very hopeful.)

2009 is just as exciting, I promise. Peek in What I Made in 2008 Flickr Group if you have a moment. You might just be inspired to start your making now.

Happy creating!

I need to try and do one of those. I have to admit, that mine will be about 1/8th as big :-)! Just thought I would surprise you on your blog. K~

  2. It’s good to see you’re posting again. I can’t believe all those knits!

  3. Sarah, we won your Autumn Garden Felted Latvian Hat from the raffle during the TLC groomer fundraiser. My wife loves the hat.Thanks for supporting TLC and thanks to your fried for the home delivery!(Sorry there was a typo in my original post. I should have previewed it.)
