a new old list

Last January I wrote a list of all the crafty things I wanted to make during the year. Here it is, with it's updated status in green

a quilt each for the girls (gulp) 
both in progress, both tops and backs are done, the hand quilting is slooooow

a couple more cushions

a dress or two for me
I managed one

a skirt for me
done, a denim one with liberty facing

2 sets of curtains (which I loathe doing)
one pair done, other pair still to be done, soon!

clothes for these ever growing children
ooops, none made

make more progress on the bullseye
I have done more, though this is clearly a long term project

develop some new designs for screen printing
I've made some progress, not enough though

have a go at an embroidery collage for the wall
forgot all about this one

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

There were of course lots of things made throughout the year that weren't on the list, I'm easily sidetracked.

see, there is some progress!

So, my 2014 version.

finish the quilts for my girls

make another cushion or two

1 pair of curtains

clothes for the children

continue with the bullseye

more screen printing, get those ideas actually onto screens

lots and lots of clothes for me, spurred on by the handmade365 challenge

Not a huge list, but managable I hope. There will of course be lots of new projects that arise and distract me I'm sure.

Have you got a crazy list of things you'd like to make / finish?


  1. I love your Kandinsky crochet! I think you did an admirable job on your last list - that's really quite a lot of makes. I can see that curtains are easily pushed down the list by more exciting projects. I think lots of handmade clothes in 2014 is going on my list too!

  2. I'm sure you can make it!

  3. you just need to work harder on the magic potion idea, that's all. Then the rest will be a breeze.

  4. Good luck! I have a huge list this year but that's nothing new, some will get done some won't but that's ok!

  5. I'm besotted by your crochet circles, the colours are gorgeous!! Make more of those! There's lots of fun things on your list. I'll put an order in for some of that magic potion please.


Thank you for leaving a comment - it makes me smile to know you're out there. x
