What I Made In 2015

I always enjoy looking back over the year to see what I made..... so here we go!

Christmas gift for Hugo

Christmas gift for Matthew

And that's it!!
I don't think I made as much as I did in 2014 but I'm still impressed :-)

I re thinking my business in 2016........ it's going to be a tough decision but I think I will be giving up selling my makes!

But what will I make???

I've been selling for about 10 years so it's going to be hard but I don't push it as much as I should & then I don't sell as much so I end up disappointed. Also the fairs are getting more expensive & sometime no one comes so you spend money on tables & with no customers.

I will of course still knit for myself but really there's only so many cardigans a girl can have!!

I need to get my thinking cap on!


  1. Oh I know that feeling about craft fairs and selling makes. I ended up giving a load of my stuff away or selling it at reduced prices. I wish I had ideas for creations I make, as you say there are only so many cardigans or brooches anyone can have!
