Finished a big project
Took up the Challenge
Learnt to knit
Had a chat
Tested patterns for bloggy mates
Shared a few tutes
Thanked  some lovely folks
Fashioned some wearables
Sewed along
Stitched a little Quilty Love
Got a new Toy
Made a new fav quilt

Got carried away in the clouds

What a lot of pretty creations in one year, Nova! Your shirt quilt was one of the loveliest things I saw on the web in 2012. Looking forward to seeing what you’ll do in the new year. x

Hi Nova, What a lovely year you’ve had! I’ve barely made it near my (new) machine, but I have to say, that geometric quilt pattern is my all time favourite. I have actually made 5 of them (not all blogged)!! Yours is, of course, absolutely beautiful. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Hello!!! I wish you a heppy new year full of (not only) sewn inspiration!

I am still thinking about sewn cloud and I try to find some matching fabrics. I hope it will be soon! I am sure: it will be very wild image of lovely cloud! My daughter loves curious combinations of colors :)

I am looking forward to your new projects!

A whole year of inspiration, well done!
You inspired me for sure. My lovely little quilt group always does a Christmas exchange with our little party. But there is a $5 limit per member so I like to make my gifts as I’m not a very good shopper. This year I made each lady a fabric bowl with your pattern! I used Outside Oslo, Sticks in red for the outside and random black on black prints for the insides. Then I made cookie mix to put inside and wrapped it all up. I don’t know how I’m going to top that next year :D
Maybe you could come up with a new pattern for me? :)
