…. I wonder…. just where did the old one go? 2009 whizzed by but looking back I realise what full & productive a year it really was…
I started this website/blog with very little tech knowledge & bumbled though learning so much along the way – my aim to be informative & hopefully recruit more enthusiasts to the exciting world of Freeform can be gauged by the amount of hits, comments & emails I’ve received over the year so I’m certainly giving this goal the big tick of success…
‘Freeform Crochet & Beyond’, was published & wholeheartedly endorsed by those already immersed or just embarking on the Freeform journey. Many thanks for all the wonderful feedback I’ve received
Alice Springs Beanie Festival entry ~ ‘Australia in colour’ ~ won the Spirit of the Land Category & I now have this fabulous ‘Camel Trophy’….. my best prize ever!
Joined Ravelry & found all the fibre, crochet & knitting nutters in one place – I’ve met some truly remarkable people & what a joy this has been….
Encouraged by family I’m now on Facebook & even have a Fan Page – good grief!!! what next?
I bit the bullet & opened an Etsy Shop… where I’ve met a great bunch of Aussie Girls in the Dust Team & would probably still be foundering about had it not been for their help & support- it’s been huge learning curve (that is still going on) but I’ve enjoyed every minute – so much in fact, that I decide to open 2 more – one on Artfire & another on Zibbet – I may have over-extended myself here but I’ll just see how things go…..[edited August 2011: what a shame… Artfire no longer supports basic accounts]
There has also been a lot of creative participation throughout the year -‘ The Four Seasons’ challenge – National Gallery Pole knit – Sydney Hyperbolic Coral Reef Project – All great fun projects that wetted the creative juices….
Most importantly… I’ve made some new & very special friendships (you know who you are) – thank you to all of you for your love, support & encouragement – as I look back on 2009… yep…. it’s been a fabulous year indeed….
So what’s in store for 2010?
At the moment I’m having a real fair dinkum go at Knitting after discovering ‘Crazy Lace’ by Myra Wood – not really much of a knitter myself but this Crazy Lace has unleashed a whole new adventure – thanks Myra – I’m so enjoying it & posting my first pics of one of many projects I’m working on…. Here’s hoping everyone has a wonderful creative 2010…..
Cotton Rainbow: Crazy Lace knit – hand dyed…. enjoy!
