a new list

Feeling refreshed and raring to go again, I have a new creative list, things I would like to make and do this year. I did one last year and managed to complete most of the tasks, the curtain and the clothes for me didn't happen, fancy.

Armed with some juicy fabrics, from here, I will be printing onto the solids and diving into the list...

a quilt each for the girls (gulp)

a couple more cushions

a dress or two for me

a skirt for me

2 sets of curtains (which I loathe doing)

clothes for these ever growing children

make more progress on the bullseye
(see below)

develop some new designs for screen printing

have a go at an embroidery collage for the wall

make a magic potion that doubles the number of hours in a day

I know that is an impossible list, but you never know!...

The Bullseye, this is a slow project. It's my on-the-go project. It comes with me on the occassional tube journey and I pick it up while watching the girls at their swimming lessons. I am almost one year on from starting it, I may not have done loads, but I LOVE it, my circles are fairly ripply, but I can live with that. 

What are your creative plans for the year? Tell me you have impossible goals too, please! 

Playing along with my creative space.


  1. I love your list! I have a similar one pinned to my fridge. Well done for putting some projects for YOU on the list - you should do those first! I have never made curtains but made a roman blind for the kitchen and it was not a process I enjoyed very much! Too much measuring. Your bulls eyes are so pretty, they do look good laid out together like that.

  2. Great list, though I think I can predict what will roll over to yet another year. We have a pile of curtain fabric that has been going dusty for years, so long I've stopped putting it on my to do list!

  3. Though if you manage with the potion can I have some?

  4. those bullseyes are amazing! My creative goal is definitely to sew more clothes for me (and to have time to do it!)

  5. Looking forward to the next few montsh show and tell!

  6. I haven't made myself a list yet. I got so distracted by my screen printing... seems you have the bug too, how great!
    Love the bullseye crochet, its gorgeous! and "juicy" is the perfect word for those fabrics! have fun.

    Happy new year!

  7. I love a list, and your bulls eyes! I made a craft list last year and it laughed at me! However, I do still keep a more general lost of things I want to do in a year. More as inspiration than anything. I look forward to seeing what you make this year!

  8. I'll pay handsomely for a teaspoon of that potion when you crack the remedy! LOVE the bullseye crochet..fantastic colours xxx
