My Favorite Projects of 2013

The year in review of projects, which is always fun to look back on, because sometimes I forget what I’ve done over the course of the year.  Jumping back to January, my favorite, and the most popular {with 2,811 views), was the Kindle cover I made.


In April, I was happy to come up with something I liked for our small entry/foyer in our condo. 


I feel like I accomplished a lot in May and three favorites are from that month.  My grain sack table makeover.


The clothespin bag I made from the cloth packaging that held a dust ruffle.



And my jewelry armoire makeover.


In June, I made a crib size rag quilt, which was a first for me, for a new baby gift.


In July, I had two projects that I enjoyed doing.  One was this clock makeover for my granddaughter.


As well as the cabinet door makeover, from one I found at Goodwill. 


In August, I loved the magnetic frame I did from a framed print. The frame was so pretty and I was really happy with how this turned out.

I also tried sewing Christmas stockings for the first time and was really pleased with the way they turned out.


Popular on Pinterest, and something I enjoyed making for my son, in September was this double-sided anatomy and skull pillow.



I was happy to get around to making some new chair slips out of dropcloth in October.


My Hotel de Paris sign in November had a lot of views and doing this sign gave me the confidence to look forward to doing more along this line.


Ending the year with a new lampshade project for our master bedroom in December. 


I’ve realized as I’ve looked back over these posts that there were a lot of “first time” projects for me, which I am so glad now that I gave a try.  Have you found that you have done the same?  I’m looking forward to seeing what projects I will take on in 2014!

You have so many wonderful projects that it's impossible to pick a favorite, though receiving one of your lovely stockings was a highlight for me. I'm looking forward to seeing what the new year brings for you. :)
