So, who’s looking forward to 2017? Can we say it starts tomorrow in order to protect David Attenbrough???
I have compiled a list of goals for next year, a variety of crafting/learning new skills/personal development. I’m really excited to start!
There are three crafting(ish) ones I’m aiming for:
1)Have birthday/Christmas presents planned by the end of February
This one is actually mostly done. I need to come up with something for my dad’s birthday, and I currently have a blanket down for my parents Christmas, but I’m not sure about that one… I’ve started a spreadsheet with everyone’s birthday/fav colour and what they’ve had from me previously to make this much easier, and it’s definitely working! I can do a larger post on this later if people are interested?
2) Stitch and finish my Christmas stockings.
I want 24/25 of them to become an advent calender for me, the others I’m not so sure on. Maybe Christmas tree decorations? So far I think I have about 3 done (but they’re currently up in York so I can’t check!)
3) Complete the November crafting challenge. Either NaKniSweMo, or NaCrossStitchMo.
I have a couple of options for this. There’s a butterfly fairy cross stitch I’d like to do from a couple of issues of one of the cross stitch magazines I’ve got. Alternatively, I still have Cockatoo Brae to do (because doing NaKni with a 4ply yarn is such a great idea…). Or I could figure out how many hexagons on my scrappy blanket that would be and do that (this would be the easiest to keep track of whether I’m on track…). Or just a generic blanket, as I totally want a proper blanket for myself!
So what do you think? Any thoughts will be gratefully read! Are any of you planning on anything similar???
