58 books read, 75 crafty finishes and 15 pairs of shoes.
No one got any of them spot on, but if you total all three items together you get 148, and via a slightly different combination of individual figures Wendy who blogs at The Crafter's Apprentice, also arrived at a total of 148, so I'm declaring her the winner. Wendy, if you send me your snail mail I'll pop a small prize in the post.
I've reset the counters so if anyone wants to make a guess for 2015 and win a mystery prize, just add a comment to this post (I'll accept entries up until the end of the month).
I'm shamefully late posting my Christmas thank yous (hangs head) but I did get some wonderful presents from on-line friends, including:-
A pretty notebook from Karan (matches the pen she sent for my birthday)
A diary, bath petals and chocolate from Clare
Cosy socks and a pair of beautiful twinkly glass snowflakes (made by her DH) from Barb
A French style motif sampler and fabric in the Advent Exchange, which turned out to be from Polly
This gorgeous folded fabric tree decoration from Julie
Thank you all so much.

I don't DO socks.
I knitted a sock once,
