mollie's top ten wild olive posts of 2015
I can't believe that 2015 is coming to a close. Where has the time gone? I know I say this a lot, and I've come to the conclusion that if there's one thing I need to work on in the days ahead, it's that I need to stop losing track of time. That goes for the minutes, hours, days, weeks, and months.
In the midst of time flying, I forget about the things that have happened. It's easy to think "what did I actually do this year?". And so I looked back, and found so many things! Choosing favorites is nearly impossible, but here are my top ten posts from 2015!
10. Embroidered Stargazing Pouch
This pouch combines hand embroidery and hand sewing...and a zipper! It currently holds some of my embroidery supplies.
9. Sparkled Heart Garland
In just a few weeks my heart garland will come out again, sparkling with sequins for Valentine's Day.
8. EPP Plus Quilt
In the new year, I really want to do more hand quilting, and this plus design may be where I start. My not-yet-finished piecing needs some attention.
7. Linen & Floral Hope Banner
I see this banner every morning, as it hangs near the foot of my bed. It's a constant reminder of the hope I can help bring to the world through Jesus.
6. 120 Caregiver Kits
Back in the spring, we did something big and raised funds to build 120 World Vision Caregiver Kits to help those suffering from Ebola. Talk about hope!
5. Hexagon Tinies Printable Coloring Picture
With the coloring trend going into full swing, someone suggested that I make a coloring picture, and I'm so glad they did! Don't miss the Christmas version...it's free through the end of 2015!
4. Walk with Me Embroidery Pattern
This pattern was created as a reminder for myself, and the response was pretty incredible. Clearly you all liked the reminder too. And although I still haven't stitched my own, I've seen some really beautiful embroideries that folks have done with the pattern!
3. I AM Doing a New Thing Banner
One of the first things I made in the new year needs to be one of the things I carry into 2016. There's always room for doing new things.
2. Star Wars Mini Guinea Hams
Star Wars Tsum Tsum. Need I say more? (Okay, maybe that some new characters need to come along...am I right? I'll add them to the 2016 list!)
1. Stitch Love - I Loaf You Bread Cloth
And my choice for the number one post is this project I made from my book, Stitch Love, with a new freebie pattern. I picked it because it goes with the book I wrote that came out in 2015!
And it's also a cat, and I've sorta started to realize that I'm more of a cat lady than I want to admit. Not sure if that's a high or low point for 2015...
