#52 hannemadetags

I can’t quite believe that I have now made all the tags for this challenge. I have loved this project so much, even the tags I didn’t care for over much, which includes two of the ones I am sharing today.

Wheatear stitch. I don’t like the stitch or my choice of background fabric.

This tag was about something that triggered a memory. Anne used a feather as they represent her Mum who died a long time ago. Others used found objects eg pebbles, or sea glass from a holiday they enjoyed. I used this lovely butterfly button to represent the two butterflies which appeared at strange but rather important times this year for me.


We were supposed to add round buttons, but I didn’t. I used these instead.

Christmas wreath

I loved , just loved stitching this wreath, back stitch, fly stitch, chain stitch, bullion knots( and they are indeed much easier with a milleners needle) , french knots and beads, lots of them. I can see myself making more of this one for Christmas cards.

And finally

Christmas tree in a bowl

This was tied using macrame, it was fiddly and I don’t like it over much, but it was quick.

#52 hand stitched tags

What a wonderful project and full credit to Anne Brooke, who inspired every one of them with her amazing videos. She is doing flags next year, but there is a charge I think. Can’t blame her it must have been a lot of effort. Hope you enjoyed reading about my efforts.

Not sure what I will stitch in 2022, we shall see. I suppose I could always sticth a few of my projects locked away in cupboards for what, a rainy day?

We recently moved house to Wiltshire to be closer to family. This means I have a lovely new area to explore and being retired time to enjoy my family, the garden, walking, reading, crafting, history and life in general.

  1. I’m agreeing with Margaret above – Congratulations on completing this challenhe, and I love the wreath! Maybe start more of those for your next year’s cards, then perhaps just glance toward your other projects… something might catch your eye! 😉 Happy New Year! 🥳 🎉 💕

  2. Well done to keep up and finish them all. I’ve really enjoyed seeing your tags as you have made them. I started in January and kept up until April when I moved, and that was it! I think I’ll try again in 2022 because I really enjoyed making them.
