The idea is that everyone shares their favourite project of 2011, and I’ve interpreted that as meaning favourite stamped project, so here I go with mine…………………
Back in June I was looking for ideas for a birthday present for a really special friend and while looking through some old copies of Craft Stamper I came across a five sided Etui with little drawers inside that had been designed by Alix Waterhouse.
It was definitely out of my comfort zone but at the time I was looking to try something a little more challenging than cards or scrapbook layouts and this little box seemed to fit the bill.
You can read my original post here.
Aha, but I didn’t stop there…..oh no.
I enjoyed making the first box so much that I decided to make two more for another couple of crafty friends who also had birthdays coming up.
Here’s the original post of the other two and there's more pictures too.
Now, I know this is all supposed to be about stamping but there is one more project that I worked on last year that under other circumstances would have most definitely been my No1 project............nine quilts and eleven cushions, all cross stitched for St. Clare Hospice.

It was a real labour of love, if ever there was one!
Read the full story and see the rest of the photos here, including the presentation to the Hospice on what would have been my dad's 88th birthday.
Well thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed seeing my favourite projects of 2011………….I wonder what projects next year will bring!
