My 2022 Crafting Year

My 2022 year included a variety of crafts: stitching, card making, sewing and felt work. Here's the highlights.

I made thirteen Christmas Puddings for my Needlecraft Haven and other friends.

I also stitched five other Christmas gifts. 

Throughout the year I stitched eight gifts, two were very special: our son's degree and a special 90th birthday. I've hidden one gift as although I've made it it will not given until January.

I've taken part in five exchanges with the lovely members of Needlecraft Haven and have completed two of the seasonal challenges.

I joined Jo's JCS Stitchalong on Facebook and completed four months. I stitched six ornaments with Topsy Turvy SAL which is also on Facebook.

I stitched five items for myself, including a travelling chart with the Needlecraft Haven members.

I have been stitching a Temperature SAL making two cake bands; my summer one is complete covering April to September and I have nearly finished my winter band covering January to March and October to December.

This year my church tree was full of letters: The Alphabet Tree. I stitched and finished 32 ornaments. 

I am so very grateful and extremely touched by everyone's generosity. I received 36 letters which I finished to match mine, thank you.

I didn't realise how much stitching I have done - 

51 items made .... plus ...

52 flowers stitched on my Temperature SAL ... plus ...

68 letters finished for The Alphabet Tree 

2023 will soon be here, for us it's an exciting year as we have two weddings in the family, one being our lovely daughter's. Special stitching plus a few other special occasions and birthdays. That said I am not doing another Temperature SAL nor am I stitching for the church tree, however there will be a tree and I'll post the details soon. 

I wish you all a very happy New Year with plenty of flying needles and no frogs in 2023.


  1. Well done. so many finishes, you must be really pleased.
    Happy New year to you and your family x

  2. Wow ,just wonderful so lovely to see your work through the year .
    Hugs June.

  3. You have been busy this year! I do love these annual round-up posts where we can really appreciate how much stitching we accomplished. I can also see why Gifted Gorgeousness is such a popular link up!

  4. Happy New Year Clare: You have been busy the felt ornaments are lovely so sweet.
    I hope 2023 is a fun filled stitch year for you and all who stitch.


  5. You had a fantastic year! So many lovely stitches, crafts, and finishes. I hope this year is just as productive for you.

  6. I've just caught up on the last five months of posts and am like, wow, so many gorgeous projects and gifts!
    All of the church trees looked amazing, as usual. You must have been so proud to have displayed not only your letters but items gifted from around the world.
    It will probably seem strange not stitching a temperature SAL or items for your tree in 2023, but that's understandable with a special wedding approaching. I hope all the planning and preparations go well and you all have a happy, healthy and stitchy 2023!
