Looking back at 2014
By Vendulka - January 04, 2015
At the beginning of a new year I am always thinking about the previous one. I remember what important happened in my life. I am looking forward to open my new diary for first time :-)
I keep all of my diaries from last years, because they are full of sketches of my ideas. I'm going trough all designs I made in last year and I am looking forward to make those that left to the next year. Last year was full joys and some worries, so I haven't much time for my hooks.
This was my year 2014
January: I made some colors and new material studies. I designed colorful pompom's scarf and sleeping owl to my owl's collection :-) I made a puppy hat for my goddaughter and puppy applique pattern.
My honey girl had wedding :-)
February: The preparation on our puppies gave me less time for creating. But I designed a bag for Gomitoli (Italian producer of yarn). I designed red poppy flower brooch. I revised mushroom applique pattern and made new toy - Little prince best friend - the Fox
March: Our puppies were born! :-) I am so proud on my Honey girl - Sunny :-)
I tried to work a little bit... and revised my Sheepie coaster pattern and Garden scene purse pattern and made an easy pompom free tutorial. I made another Crazy rainbow bag :-)
April: The March was all about the puppies :-) My hooks are sad and lonely....
May: May was still all about the puppies :-) My hooks are still sad and lonely....
June: June was all about the puppies again :-) Our sweet puppies were going to their new home. And I was trying to work a little bit again! :-)
I revised birdie purse pattern, I designed new softies :-): butterflies. Sew some dresses for my girl's dolls. I designed little princess applique and the purse for princess and wrote new free tutorial of rainbow of hope and love.
July: After two years I finished Crazy rainbow bag pattern - my first happy dancing moment :-) After one year I finished Mad about the buttons bag pattern - my second happy dancing moment :-) and after two years I finished my Good witch pattern - my third happy dancing moment :-)
August: We were on vacation :-) It was lovely time! After vacation, we should move to our new home.... But we didn't yet.
Oh, my baby girl will be schoolgirl! OMG - the time is running soooooo fast! I made for her the Candy cone :-) and I finished the heart pattern.
September: The school and Kindergarten whirl begun - no time for hooks again! But I revised my patchwork heart pattern. My girl needed an apron - so I sewn one for her!
October: ooooh, my hooks were on the fire! :-) I loved it! I was busy like a bee. I designed autumn rainbow collection and I made big rainbow bag and some hats :-) - butterfly hat and butterfly applique (oh, I just realized, that I didn't add these patterns to my store - I am sorry), rainbow slouchy and some other creation. I wrote new free tutorials: how to sew the applique easily and nicely and how to sew the lining into the crocheted bag
November: The Christmas creating - I admire the Christmas!!!! I revised my Christmas decoration patterns like Christmas booties, and small Christmas tree. Sleeping owl get an Christmas coat :-). I made some colorful Christmas owls I made some sheepie coasters and new hanging decoration - Reindeer (but the base came from my Reindeer coaster pattern).
December: I designed new Christmas tree and my first Christmas wreath - I was happy!. I thought, that the Christmas wreath pattern will be my Christmas present for you. But my hubby's injury and illness of me and my girls broke all my plans... But please don't be sad, the pattern will come soon and you will have enough time to make this wreath to the next Christmas :-)

I am looking forward that we will meet again in the new year and I would like to wish you the light in your soul, kindness, patience and hope in your heart and strong health for you body ... Heartily Yours, Vendulka
