The 2010 collection of photo mosaics/samplers.

After doing this here for 2011 I did intend to go back and cover 2010. This week was the week I did it and here are the results. It is a most enjoyable (if time-consuming) way of reviewing a year's worth of photos.













January:- Cold and snowy. I finish joining together my first ever crocheted squares with the intention of making a cushion cover - as of 2012 it is still incomplete and as it is full of mistakes it will probably now be frogged when I find it...

February:- Sunny and bright! I begin my round crocheted cushion fever - #1 is complete, the yarn is selected for #2.

March:- Some late snow and a snowman. Round cushion #2 well underway. A strange abandoned doll collection is spotted while on a bike ride.

April:- Round cushion #3 now begun. I make some leaded candle holders for a give-away, my favourite is the robin. Great to get washing dried outdoors, still quite a cold month I recall.

May:- My favourite month of the year, 2010 was a good one. We caught great weather at the end of the month for our holiday in Kilcudbright. Round cushion #2 is complete. I discover African flowers and before I know it I have started my first crocheted blanket.

June:- Show month & birthday month. Round cushion #3 complete. The blanket is growing...

July:- A decent pea harvest, yummy. Still the blanket grows, like the garden full of flowers.

August:- I cycle to Loch Lomond (and back). We go for some trips before the holidays finish. A started school & N started nursery.

September:- September 2010 was lovely. My other favourite month of the year. Lots of great cycling weather. A bumper crab apple & bramble harvest.

October:- It looks like I finally started tackling sewing in the ends of the African flower blanket. Cooking & Baking becomes more hearty as the days shorten.

November:- Quince brandy - I don't like it! My first crocheted scarf. First snow of the winter. I begin crafting some felt ornaments for the Christmas Fairs to come.

December:- Lots of snow, beautiful. More mincemeat than I know what to do with. Christmas is coming...

Beautiful way to summarise the year - I love the idea of doing the same.......but really don't think I dare start as I know I'd spend ages on it! Juliex

What a lovely idea - I'm always admiring people's month photo-mosaics and thinking I should do the same but it's never occurred to me to do it with previous years. Bet it's a lovely way to bring back memories! I recognise your January Elvis I think - is he at Kelvingrove?

So many of your photos are works of art in their own right.

I love the mosaics. They are so colourful and what a lovely way to remember each month.

Wow, so many beauties all in one place. I am fascinated by the Elvis. I love the longhaired, long-horned cattle - someone near us has a herd of them. And the very story-book-looking toadstool is amazing. The entire December mosaic is so wintry and Christmassy it almost makes me sorry spring is here. (Almost.)

Love the mosaics. Wonderful idea!! Something I would love to do... if I only had more time!! :-) The March babies gave me a fit of giggles!! Someone has a strange sense of humor. :-) Thanks for sharing!!

Such a great way to record a year. I only managed three '9 patch' mosaics for 2011, you are clearly a prolific photographer. And judging by all those different projects a very busy lady too :D

Look at all that colour? That's something I wouldn't be getting tired of year in, year out...

Rattling On said...
