2020 Stitching Review

I cannot believe I stitched 63 items in 2020, especially with all my health issues. In the last few months I have enjoyed stitching some special gifts which I will share in January's GG. 

I do have a page for each year for my list of finishes, you can find it at the top of my blog - this is a copy of my 2020 list. It only shows items I stitched, it doesn't include my card making or finishing the flowers.

I have enjoyed all my stitching, especially the Stitching the Night Away SAL as I knew I'd be giving the blocks to my friends - there's more details in my last blog post here 

But my favourite stitching and finishing is the Bouquet of Flowers. I was overwhelmed with the flowers I received and with the world changing Bouquet of Flowers became a symbol for us all ..... caring, sharing, kindness, love and friendship.

I'm quite an organised person and for some of 2020 I was a little lost which I found quite unsettling; I have spent today planning my 2021 projects and adding blogging dates to my calendar. For the first time I have joined a couple of groups on Facebook and will also be doing WIPocalypse - I'm not 100% sure I have it right but I will be posting about my 2021 plans on 2nd January. 

Thank you for all the kind messages and cards, you all really really helped me. Huge thank you to everyone who stitched a flower, there is still time to do one for next year. 

I wish you all a happy and healthy 2021, enjoy stitching your projects and stay safe x x 

🎉🎉 Happy New Year 🎉🎉


  1. Congratulations on all your finishes :-) The flowers look amazing all together!
    Happy New Year, lets hope it's an improvement on this one.
    Take care x

  2. Congratulations on all your stitching Clare , I love to keep busy too.
    This year I want to finish some of my UFOs and SALs plus a few smalls .
    I love to rotate most of my work too,I do get bored if I don't .
    The flower tree is beautiful.

  3. What a lovely year of stitching, Clare! I am still in awe at how many beautiful flowers you received! Hoping 2021 will bring you renewed health and much happiness. Take care now ♥

  4. Wow, you accomplished quite a bit in 2020! I hope you do as well in 2021. BTW, I saw your posts in both groups this morning, so I guess I'm stitching right along with you (at least in one of them).

  5. Clare: You have been busy, you have a lovely list of 60, congratulations.
    The tree is so pretty with the ornaments showing their beauty.
    WE do belong to a special group here on Blogland, stitcher's are so very generous.
    Happy New year


  6. Given everything you had to deal with in 2020, you managed a lot of stitching, Clare.
    Your tree with all its flowers is heartwarming.

  7. Your tree looks lovely with all the stitching on and well done on all your finishes last year. It is exciting planning out a new year of stitching and I am looking forward to it.

  8. Wow! That's awesome! What a list! The Flower Tree is gorgeous! What a special creation that is and I'm sure many will enjoy it!

  9. Wow great work! Love your flowers. Just beautiful.

  10. That is a fabulous list. One of the encouraging things about keeping a blog is seeing just how much progress you make even when it doesn't seem like it at the time.
    The photo of all the flowers is amazing and they look fantastic on the tree too. This was a very special project and I'm glad I was part of it too.

  11. Hi Clare,
    Congratulations on all of your finishes. That is so amazing. I seem to stitch slower than ever these days. LOL! Your tree is so beautiful with all of the stitched flowers on it. I spotted my little hydrangea :) Like Jo I was very blessed to be a part of it too! Continued prayers for your health.
    Happy New Year!

  12. 63 pieces! That is an amazing amount of stitching. All those beautiful flowers on your tree look gorgeous. Happy 2021!
