2009 Craftiness


2009 Craftiness, originally uploaded by Lucy & Norman.

I guess I was pretty busy this year! This is an important milestone for me because I only began sewing and knitting again one year ago after my mom bought me a new sewing machine for Christmas. The rest is history. I also made a lot more baby stuff than is shown in the mosaic, but I have been really lazy and cheap about upgrading my Flickr account so I can pull my older photos (put that on the to-do list).

I didn't make a New Year's resolution last year because I figured being pregnant was work enough. Maybe that was a good tactic because not only did I learn an absolute ton about the needle arts, I also gave birth to my beautiful girl and learned how to care for her. My proudest accomplishment yet!

Well back to the boring old classic New Year's resolution this year.....healthy living for weight loss. I want my body back! Probably just in time to get pregnant again, but if I don't get these last few hanger-on-ers off I am going to freak out. I am thinking of going for a farewell Red Mill burger today (you other Seattleites know what I mean!) and then lots of Champagne and pasta tonight. Then it is three days a week of cardio, two days of yoga and lots of fresh fruit, vegetables, lean protein and cutting back on the wine. Not too fun but we are going to Mexico in May and I need to be beach-ready!

My other resolution is to stay on my fabric diet :(. I will show you a picture of my stash soon, but it has really become quite obscene. Now if only Denyse, Heather and Anna would quit designing such must haves.

I am hoping to continue in a big way with my crafty streak in 2010 and looking forward to having another wonderful year full of inspiration from all of you. I truly couldn't have gotten to where I am without the benefit of all of you sharing your beautiful creations. Here is to a Happy New Year to all!

  2. Let me get this straight...you only started sewing this year?!!! Your my sewing hero! I plan on learning to sew this year and I thought it would be impossible to sew like you by the end of it. This has been inspirational. Thank You! (BTW, I found you via the Good Folks flikr group as I'm attempting my first quilt using her fat quarters).
