2016 : A Year of Crafting

Hello......... I wasn't planning on doing a year in review post, this year as well I didn't think there would be a awful lot to share, 2016 was not so great here at the Summerhouse I spent most of the year trying to recover from a relapse of my ME/Lyme disease that hit in the Autumn 2015.

So instead of a general review I thought it might be good to just focus on the fun stuff and look back on all the crafts, so this is going to be a happy little post. 

  Over the past week I've been putting together 12 colourful crafty mosaics, enjoying seeing the colours change throughout the year with the different makes but all in a way still linked by the same colour palette I always seem drawn to here at the Summerhouse. 

You see she maybe a bit old and shabby but magical crafty things happen inside this grand old lady, who is known affectionately around these parts as 'the shed'

I hope you enjoy them.













So there you have it, a whole year of Summerhouse crafting fun, although I have to admit a great deal of it has take place and been created from my comfy bed.

Here's to 2017.

Happy Crafting

Thank you for all the kind comments left on my last post, I'm going to try my very best to stick around in blogland, I might not be able to post as often as I'd like to and I'm sorry I probably won't be able to make it round to visit all you're lovely blogs but as always I'm going to keep trying.


  1. Hi Clare, I love seeing your year in review posts, and even if it doesn't seem like it, you get LOADS of crafting done. Sorry your ME/Lyme's has been giving you grief, I hope its eased off a wee bit. Of all your pics my favourites are the knickers bunting :) So cute! Happy January!

  2. You have accomplished so much, Clare! Bravo! Your mosaics are beautiful. I look forward to hearing from you when you are able, and I wish you well! Rain is slowly washing our snow and ice away, and I am grateful to be warm and cozy inside. Just doing a bit of knitting and wanting to do so many other creative things. xx

  3. Scrolling through your year, I am impressed by the consistency of your aesthetic. You have developed a very beautiful style of your own!

  4. Magical stuff indeed, you have made so many great things this year. Happy Crafting. Jo x

  5. I am sure that you would always like to do more, because we all do that, but really, the amount you did in 2016 puts me to shame! You have achieved so many beautiful things, they really are lovely and it was great to see them again!
