General Crafting


I know Christmas isn’t even here yet, but I am already starting to think of things that I would like to do in the New Year. 2011 has been a great year for my crafty-wise, and I am really hoping that it continues into next year.

I think one of the most productive things I did in 2011 (other than starting my business of course) was the 12 in 12 challenge. Although the end of the year has been a struggle (I will do a post after Christmas about what all I managed to finish), it definitely make me knit more.

What I did notice about this year was that I did not get a lot of quilting done, and I really missed it! So this year I am going to issue myself a challenge of doing 6 quilts in ’12. I know 12 quilts finished isn’t realistic for me, so 6 it is. Does anyone else feel like joining me? It doesn’t have to be 6 – it can be whatever number you think is appropriate for you. If there is any interest out there, I would definitely be willing to host an “along”. Just let me know in the comments!

Another thing I am hoping to do in the new year is a lot more tutorials on the blog. I am thinking I will start with one every other Friday, and see how that goes. I have three lined up already, so that is a good start! Anything you guys would like to learn?

For now though, I am going to spend a couple of weeks with my family and friends, finish up some crafting, and generally eat too much. I hope that all of you have a wonderful holiday, a safe New year, and a crafty 2012!

(PS – want to see what I am up to on a more regular basis? Follow me on Instagram! I’m knitty34)

    Ooh. That sounds good Sally. I second that.

    How about how to iron a dress shirt? I’m not kidding. You are amazing at it, and it takes me an hour and I still have wrinkles.

    How about a how-to about that display board we made with the ribbons? That was awesome!

    I am a new quilter and had been thinking of making a goal of 6 quilted projects in 2012 so I am up for it. For my goal I am counting any table runner, placemats, etc. along with hopefully a couple lap size quilts. Good luck with your goal – I will be following along for quilty inspiration!
