2007: A Year of Crafts

Above are some of my favorite projects from 2007. This year (or is it last year now?), I dove into the big stuff- quilts, afghans, garment sewing, etc. In a sense I was waiting, and these crafts took up my time on a daily basis but also reminded me to look at the big picture if an individual square or block was feeling a bit wonky.  I felt really accomplished when I completed my bed-sized babette inspired blanket and our full sized quilt. I really love playing with patchwork, and I think there’ll be  more of it in the new year, although in smaller doses. I also crocheted a ton of hats (some of which I’m selling in a local boutique, yay) and I learned to knit.

This year I’d like to make more crafts that aren’t so purpose driven– you know, loosen up and have fun. I always worry about what I will do with said crafts, but maybe that’s okay for a while. I’m thinking that I’d like to give more handmade gifts this year as well.

Some main events of 2007:
-My sister got married January 1st! She’s expecting a baby in just a few weeks, and I am super excited to meet him.
-I went to Italy + London to visit Paul. Travelling can be hectic, but I’d like to do more of it. I don’t really fly around all that much now that I’m not in New York, and I miss the ease of being in a good location.
-I moved to Montana from NYC. Paul drove me and my stuff all the way here, with me charting a 102 fever most of the way. It’s been a real change (which I realize every time I go somewhere with massive shopping centers and huge crowds) but I like it. I do miss my independence here (I have no car), and I miss my friends, and I really miss the FOOD. But, I am a lot less tense and stressed overall, so I’d say that it’s worth it.
-I quit my job at Adorn–a necessary decision because I wanted to move. I’ve been doing a lot of freelance work for several mags, which was something I definitely wanted to try. Honestly, I prefer a full-time job, but at least I know that now. I do love that I was able to take a lot of fun road trips, and a nice 2-week xmas vacation, though– I never could do that with my 2 weeks of vacation time.

I have a feeling there will be more good things in 2008. I’m keeping my fingers crossed! Thanks to all of you who read, comment, and blog- I really do love seeing all of the inspiring things you’re making. Here’s to a happy new year!

  • Oh, Linda, I know where you're coming from on so many of these issues: moving, NYC, full-time work, travel, vacations... I'm so glad to be able to pop over here to your blog and read your take on all of it. And your amazing projects and stunning photography are always inspirational. Best wishes to you in 2008.

  • You'll get to make baby clothes! SO much fun- I want my sis to have another kid just so I can make clothes for it (like doll clothes but easier).

    Thanks for the mosiac, beautiful work!
