December Doings, Done And Dusted

My final Craft Round Up of the year. Here it is
All Christmassy - and all Church related

  1. my remade 'Sunday Candle' reminding me to be a light for Jesus in my community
  2. the jigsaw gift tags I made with children at the Craft Fair
  3. the little woolly hats made with adults at the Craft Fair
  4. the various nativity costumes and headgear - my tutorial for this has now be repinned over 2K times on Pinterest. I am amazed
  5. my church biscuits- and all the other cooking stuff
  6. the dining room floor, showing evidence of all this craftiness [now vacuumed and shampooed]
  7. Lelaine and Rebecca dancing at the Carol service
  8. The UCF Christmas Tree in the Festival at St Martins
  9. One of the dance skirts
And finally, a collage of the whole year's output. I suspect there are a few crafty bits which have escaped the camera - but nevertheless I feel happy with this lot. I may not be in paid employment at the moment, but nobody could say I am sitting around twiddling my thumbs! I am not sure which project has been the most satisfying. I've loved making garments for others [especially Rosie], and greetings cards for friends, and home renovations...but I suspect 2016 will be marked at the year in which I actually got to exhibit some of my work in a pukka textiles exhibition in Norwich Cathedral. Now I really can call myself a craftswoman!


  1. What a fantastically productive year! Definitely entitled to call yourself an accomplished craftswoman. I think that this year may mark the time I have to accept the end of my crafting pursuits (as well as gardening) as my hands and wrists are just so painful now but I do look forward to all you will create in 2017 - your ingenuity and skills are a pleasure to see. Hope you have an enjoyable New Year's Eve! Vicki

  2. Thanks for the kind words. I am so sorry you have to give up. I am determined to keep going as long as I can. I don't want to find myself saying in later years "I wish I'd done that when I was younger and fitter"

  3. What a lovely variety of projects, you are a craftswoman indeed!

    Best wishes for the new year.

  4. You are a wonderful craftswoman Angela, and I think many people have benefited from your industry.

  5. You were always a craft phenomenon, always will be! A very Happy New Year to you and Bob, and girls and co. May 2017 bring lots of blessing x

  6. You are a truly eclectic and inventive craftswoman. I love the fact that you reuse and recycle and your crafts are so diverse and PRACTICAL!!!X
