I love a year-end recap. It’s easy to forget so much from the year. It’s weird how it seems to fly by so quickly, but if you actually take a look back you realize how much has happened. Here’s a look back at 2022 for me.
In fabric news, I released my Languid collection with Robert Kaufman. This was a special first for this type of fabric and such a treat as always to have fabric coming out in to the world.
I released three patterns this year–two of which can work with my Long Leaf Acrylic template set (or foundation paper pieced). These patterns were Cliff, Frond and Slash.
I also released an update on my Olive pattern–one of the first in my pattern line.
Three template sets were launched in 2022–Cliff, Bow and Hearts.
Other New Product
There was other new product this year too. I finally got around to launching a couple of special Handwork Supply sets that I’ve been wanting to put together for ages, and I have a new thread set available with Aurifil.
Other Projects (Quilts)
There were plenty of other projects as well. It’s easy for me to feel like I’m not getting enough things done in the moment, but when I take a look back there are things I’ve definitely forgotten about. If you are feeling the same way, you should take a look back too, and I’ll bet you’ll be surprised!
Here is some Long Leaf action in Liberty.
And a Long Leaf Baby quilt.
Blue Slash–which I still haven’t finished quilting, btw…
A couple of other Slash quilts that I didn’t share as properly. (Maybe in the new year…)
Here’s a more recent finish that I’ll be sharing more about soon.
Other Projects (Clothes)
Clothes are always a fun make, and there are many that I’ve made this year and wear often, these PJs very much included.
Plus a new dress, I learned how to brioche (this pattern), a new shirt and another new shirt.
Finally a Cielo, new socks, a hat trick, and shorts
There were several other things that I made here and there for myself, for friends and for family, including a few fanny packs (using this pattern).
And of course a ton of unfinished things too like this Hearts appliqué panel that started as a workshop demo. Everything is now fully appliquéd, but I need to take it the next step and turn it into a pillow or a wall hanging or whatever I want.
What a year! Thanks for adventuring with me on this trip back. I encourage you to reflect on the things you’ve made, learned and loved in 2022 as well. I hope you have a peaceful and healthy rest of the year.
Thanks for sharing year recap. Time goes by so fast
