2017 in Review

At the start of a new year I like to reflect back at the year just gone.

As you can see from my blog there was no activity since May 2016. In August 2016 I started a new job and it has been the busiest job I have ever done !!! Unfortunately the job in the last 12 months has pretty much consumed most of my days and nights as I have been working across multiple time zones. Needless to say I did sew just a little bit last year so here is the year in review !!

I started a "quilt as you go" project with my son Ben - to make a Star Wars quilt. Make sure you follow me on IG @jacksroom to see the progress as I'm determined to finish this one over the next few months.

I made a few custom blankets for some new little additions. This was a cute little fox blanket with flannel on the front and minky on the back - super warm for winter.

I continued where possible to make some custom quilts. This one a quilt for a little boy named Nathaniel customised with his initial on the front.

I hit 1000 followers on my Facebook page and was completely humble and grateful for all the support people have given me and my sewing !!

I made and sold a number of luxe cuddle blankets for customers that are ever so soft and perfect for gifts. There are some still available in my Etsy store here.

I made my son a jacket for Book Week and realised there is a reason why I never sew clothes. So many pattern pieces...

I did some secret sewing and made a table runner for Handmade magazine that will feature in 2018 and even had time to hand quilt it !

Last but not least I entered into a partnership with the gorgeous Moira DeCarvalho and launched Quilt Design Duo !! I'm super excited about this new venture and what is in stall for 2018 so be sure to follow us on IG @quiltdesignduo.

So there you have it 2017 in review. Bring on 2018 and more time to create !!!!

Till next time...happy sewing
