If I don’t look globally and only focus on my own front door, 2016 has been pretty good. DECEMBER 2016 can bite me, but 2016 as a whole has been fine for me and mine. I hope 2017 is a good one as well. And to my 4 readers, you know I wish you well too.
Blogger traditions says I must do a completed projects run down.
First on the list is that dumb cloak that never did hang right and I never had occasion to wear (thank God).
Then there was several knitting projects, most have not yet been used. I just don’t costume in the winter much. Going outside sucks.
Then came all the parts for the Spanish Senora dress-blouse, skirt, jacket, belt and hat.
The lace cap is the part of the Spanish dress I am most pleased with.
More knitting…a tulma that I did actually wear.
And more modern knitting.
Then I fixed my garage sale find loom…still haven’t used it.
I made some steam punk earrings. Which were worn once for the steam punk tea at Coco and never again.
And I made some wings for the Coco gala.
I made the Ugly Bag of Tea Gown less hideous…again for Coco.
Atessa was the dress I was most pleased with this year.
My first attempt at leather gloves.
My second attempt was meant to be completed on time for the final HSF challenge of the year and as my final completed project of the year…but as I said earlier, December 2016 can bite me. I’m too grumpy to be bothered and we all know what happens when we push through when the mood is off.
There was some more knitting. Not shown is neck warmer for my son…turns out I made it too big and I’m now making a smaller one.
And finally a pretty nice bag.
Knitting was a real theme this year. I should probably reduce that for next year or actually get out of the house in costume during the winter. Or stick to modern stuff…but how much does one actually need…even in winter.
