A little list to keep me focused
If I write it here, on my blog
I HAVE to complete it...right?
well that's what I am hoping anyway
These are actually projects started a while back that need finishing
♥ Puppers needs a dress
shouldn't take too long
♥ Starburst crochet granny blanket
this pattern is from issue 2 of Mollie makes
I have a LOT to do on this
it has been such a long time since I last picked it up
I just hope I can remember how to do it
I am so in l♥ve with the colours
this has been on the frame.....a while!
this one is for my sweet B
lovely G's is finished
they will both need sewing up too
♥ pink socks
these were started way back in the summer
when I was laid up with a bad back
I needed a project that could be made whilst I was horizontal
Now for my challenges for 2012
♥ Learn to quilt ♥
I was a very lucky girl on my birthday last year
my lovely craft group got together and bought me a voucher from here
Ooooh ..... how delightful
I knew exactly what I wanted to buy with it
a jelly roll
there is something so tempting about them
like pick and mix sweeties
I am hoping that by then end of the year
(I'm giving myself plenty of time!)
should will have a beautiful quilt
♥ A make a month ♥
I decided upon this idea at Christmas time
after a mad panic to get gifts made
I left everything far too late... stressful.
Recently I have seen some 'blog challenges'
(I think thats what they are called, I may have just made that up!)
that encourage the same idea.
although I have decided not to join one of these groups
as I think it will just put pressure on me
I will challenge myself to make at least one gift each month
weather it will be for a birthday or Christmas
A gift will be made
I have already made a good start
a special gift for my bestie is on it's way to her
it has a loooooong journey, all the way to Australia.
I can't show you until after her birthday in February
but I promise I will blog about it when I can
I have also started these hand warmers
I have an idea who might like them but of course it has to be top secret
I am knitting them in gorgeous alpaca yarn
bought for socks that didn't go well...
....unless you had tiny fairies feet that is!
anyway I thought it perfect for these
This is exciting and now that I have posted about it
I feel super motivated
I shall post my makes at the end of each month
Thank you for being my motivation
Before I go, I just wanted to let you know that my next post
is going to be very exciting
I have been asked to host a giveaway
I feel very honoured
so please pop back in a few days
I hope you are all having a jolly week
P.S I forgot to say....
