Finished!

The final day of Crafting 365. Wow. I know it's taken me about 5 or 6 weeks more than 365 days to complete it (breaks taken for illness, broken boilers, and other domestic disasters) and I've not posted exactly every day (mostly because of my camera and internet connection letting me down, but sometimes due to laziness and forgetfulness too!) ... but WOW it feels so great to have those 365 days under my belt! I'm really pleased with all my pictures and how much I've sewn and how the Crafting 365 group has developed ... and I think my work has really progressed since the start of the project. I'm still going to be photographing and blogging my projects, but I may miss a day here and there from now on :)

I wanted to do something special for the last day, so I picked a project I've been wanting to work on for just ages - turning my big pile of bird sketches (made in June) into actual brooches. They need their beaks and eyes and, you know, sewing together but they're starting to look like birds already...
Very typical of me to post a work in progress shot! And very very typical to be blogging about this a day late! Ah well - thanks to the delay, I've got some finished birds to show off now too as yesterday I sewed together the coal tit, greenfinch and bullfinch. Here they are along with "one I made earlier", a blue tit:
Also late: my penultimate Crafting 365 pic, a box lid filled with craftiness ...
... I started a batch of little robins and then a bit of trial and error finalising my large robin design. Got there in the end after lots of tweaking!

Watch out for the whole flock of birdies arriving in my Etsy shop over the next few weeks...

Those birdies look very lovely ^_^ I'm thinking now might be a great time to start MY own crafting 365. It's all very inspiring.

I have a flickr account, but i'm not sure how to join as i've never searched for a group. Maybe i'm just being retarded. Is this group for the whole world or is it just for the UK?

Let me know! Good job and congrats!

Wow, congratulations. What an incredible feat! You must be on cloud nine just now... or exhausted?!

Well done - have been enjoying the insight into the last 365 days!!

Tumus - if you go to a Flickr group's main page down on the bottom right there will be a link to click to "join this group", then when you have a photo on Flickr that you want to add to the group you select the "send to group" icon above the photo and select the group you want and hey presto it's in the group's photo pool :)
