#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.
Memory

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.

Circles

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.
