Some finished objects for 2010
Back on January the 1st 2010 I wrote craft resolutions for the year. Here is that post …
My plan for 2010 is to consume less. So to make that happen I’m not going to buy any fabric this year or knitting yarn. I don’t have a stash of quilt wadding, so I’ll still need to buy that and the thread for quilting.
I’m also not going to buy any more craft books. I subscribe to the Inspirations magazine and I think I’ll continue to buy The Knitter magazine.
I’m also going to keep a record of my craft spending – it’s easy to get carried away particularly when I read other peoples blogs and covet stuff.
By the end of the year I want to have finished
So how did I go? I definitely failed on the consume less goal – I bought more fabric, yarn, books and magazines I now even subscribe to The Knitter. I also kept no record (there might be a good reason for that!).
I did finish the Alphabet Quilt, but not the spiral blanket, the scarf or the socks. I did finish a different scarf and pair of socks, the hand print quilt (for the pre-primary teacher) and a couple of different machine embroidery projects.
So my goals for 2011 are:
- Knit a pair of socks a month
- Finish the spiral blanket
- Finish the swirly skirt
- Finish my scarf
- Knit a cardigan/jumper for each of the girls
- A quilt project
- A machine embroidery project
Obviously I need to focus on finishing things!
