With one day to go this year, it’s time for our first ever yearly review. I was thinking today that I haven’t read a book in a while ~ the amount of crochet done this year might explain why! I know I’ve said this before, but it seems the more I crochet the more I crochet. With every new 3am idea completed, there are another five swirling around waiting to be started.
So, here is just a summary of 2013. Apologies in advance for the length of the post!

January … was a very busy crafting month. I seem to recall Moo and I spent the first few weeks of 2013 finding the coolest place in the house to crochet (me) and snooze (Moo).
First, there was the new peg board, then my yearly sewing attempt, my first pin cushion pattern, and a finished blanket for KOGO.
February … Moo relaxed on the sofa with her new cushions and Christmas present ducky. I made little bowls and did a spot of office yarn bombing with a crochet tissue holder and phone cozy.
March … this is my favourite crochet pin cushion so far…. and then there were MacBook covers, one for Mum and one for me.
April … was all about baby blankets ~ first a simple granny square in Stylecraft, then Bear’s Rainbow Blanket.
June … looking back at June, I think I lost my crochet mojo a little ~ my favourite project by far was this knitted Capelet. Yes, knitting!
July … being winter in Australia, July was about hot water bottle covers, plus my favourite doily so far.
September … a busy month, with the end of the cold weather in sight. First there were crochet baby hats for Bella’s babies, then my first ever crochet bag, a mandala floor rug, and a granny square scarf.
October …. this is the quickest and easiest crochet bag I’ve ever made… instant gratification!
November …and Christmas preparations begin, with a trio of crochet decorations… plus an early birthday present for Moo.
December … was all about Christmas, with crochet pudding decorations, a Christmas stocking, a crochet star garland and our very first giveaway.
Well, if you’re still reading this far, a big thankyou! I didn’t quite realise just how long this post was going to be. Thankyou for sharing 2013 with Moo and I. We have big crafting plans for 2014, so we’ll be back really soon! 😀
Love Terri and Moo xxx
