When I look back on the year 2012, I feel like I didn’t get very much done at all.
But when I look at the archives, I see that my feeling is not entirely correct. True, I didn’t embroider nearly as much as I planned, but I did get some pretty good things done. I did some sewing and dabbled in other crafts, with varied results.
This year is going to be the year of the embroidery. The knitting is going to be less important, but I want to do a little more sewing too, preferably for me…
2012 Project Calender:
My daughters confirmation was one of the highlights of the year.
In may I was honored with a project grant by the Cultural Council of South Iceland. It was in connection with my embroidery exhibitions in Vík and Selfoss, but is was also, and perhaps mainly a recognition of my embroidery work.
This is a vintage dress I repaired.
A this is a lovely Ralph Lauren jacked I reworked a bit.
This is a wall. It counts.
This is perhaps not quite everything. I did some more sewing, a lot of repairs and I’m sure I have forgotten something. But nothing important.
Looking at these project photos, 2012 looks like really bad year embroidery wise.
But things are not quite as they look. I started working on my first embroidery picture last spring and although I have not embroidered a lot this fall, I did a fair bit of work on it in the spring and summer.
I have picked it up again now and I will show you a progress photo very soon.
