At any rate, I tried to make a teeny, tiny dent into my various stashes in 2013. I used a lot of Oliver + S patterns - including a number I hadn't sewn before:
|Family reunion dress; hopscotch top; hopscotch dress; badminton skort x2; puppet show tunic; field trip raglan t-shirt; school photo dress; music box jumper|
|book report dress; roller skate tunic; hopscotch top; ice-cream dress; Sunday brunch a-line skirt; class picnic shorts; playdate dress; seashore sundress; Little Things to Sew backpack|

And some knitting:
|big sweater little pockets; Tama x 2; explorer vest; autumn leaves|
I knitted another owl jersey in July while I was at a conference but I haven't managed to sew on the last 8 buttons. Must do that.
So a relatively productive year for me despite work commitments, conferences and holidays away from the craft barn. No favourite but I'm nearly always pleased with the item I just finished… until I start something else. Hopefully the majority of these items have been used - or even loved (is that too much to ask?!?) - by the people they have gone to.
And now, on with the 2014 show!
