Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

Umm, so yeah…

I was planning on starting up the monthly goals again, but since we’re so near the end of January, it isn’t really worth it. I will briefly mention my current projects though, so I can get into it next week when I talk about my February goals…

My main piece is the ‘breathe’ embroidery. I had hoped to have it done by the beginning of January, but hey ho…I’m now hoping to get it done by the end of January. Fingers crossed this happens…

My other piece with a definite time limit is the cross stitch wedding sampler.

Sometime next week I will work out how fast I need to work on this to have it done by the end of June (I think the wedding is happening in August and it will need framing as well).

Finally, my current big knitting project is still cockatoo brae. I’ve fixed the neckline, and now am procrastinating over picking up the stitches for the button-band, so I will try to make a swatch to see how many stitches I need to pick up. That probably won’t happen until February, but we shall see…

Start it Sunday- 2019 edition

No, that isn’t a typo. I’m starting to really consider what I want to do next year (craft wise, this isn’t a mid-life crisis or anything like that!), and I’m trying to remember that my word for next year is ‘Breathe’, and so how best to think things through than by doing the embroidery I got for it?

So far I have just filled in one cloud, and it’s a lot easier than I was expecting/fearing. So if anyone is sitting on the fence about trying embroidery, (and you want a nudge into trying it!) then definitely do so! I really like this style, and might try something similar next year for next years word! It’s not something I want to do more regularly I think (it took me 20 mins to do that little bit..), but it’s new and interesting and not terrifyingly bad to get stuck in with 🙂

Later on expect a blog post about this year in review and what I’d like to do next year! There are many plans, but I’m trying to be realistic (ha! I can try, at any rate!) so we’ll see what stays…
