Good Bye 2017, Hello 2018

I always think it is good to summarize what I managed to accomplish over the past year in my world of Arts and Socks. So, here goes:


I created a pattern for a tote bag, and taught it in a class at my quilt group. 

I also made 

4 Tote Bags
8 Other Bags or Purses
2 Tablet Cases
2 Pairs of Shorts
4 Bibs
Christmas Tree Skirt (finally off my to finish list)
Preaching Stole
Wall Hnaging

Christmas Bibs For My Baby


4 Pairs of Baby Socks
4 Assorted Baby Hats
2 Pairs of Fingerless Mitts
1 Adult Hat
1 Scarf

Adult Hat

Works in Progress

2 Pairs of Socks
1 Pair of Mitts
2 Shawls

The Works in Progress are the ones I actually have immediate plans to finish. There are probably more that will find there way here in the next while.

Going forward, I am continuing to try not letting a day go by without some crafting. My knitting continues to travel with me, to meetings and appointments. Since most of my sewing is done by machine, I can't travel with it quite so well. 

I plan to make more bags, finish at least one quilt, and knit lots. I will continue to use my stash as much as possible. I will also keep learning new things.


  1. Quite an achievement.....well done, Kate!

  2. That's quite an impressive list, Kate!

  3. That's impressive! You did a lot in 2017!

  4. Hi Kate,
    Very impressive! All that work done, I love your bags.
    Have a great day!

  5. Well done Kate. I did keep some notes this year of what I worked on, but kinda slipped up as the year when along. I'll have to get back on track.

    Thanks for linking up with Stitch'n Time.
