A YEAR OF PROJECTS



Here goes …..

Afghans


I have many Afghans on the go, I think I suffer startitis!  So I want to rein in the impulse to start each new Cal I see!

Current WIPs

Frida
Bamm Shazamm
Bam2016
(the above three are up to date as they current Cals)
Sophie
Around the Bases
Puffed Wheat
Power of Love
Also I am letting myself do one in September as there are Cals that look interesting starting them, but before I start it I have to have finished Sophie or around the Bases.

Doilies


There are two directions I want to take with doilies, one traditional ( I am making an off white bed cover made up of doilies from Patricia Kristoffersens book Fabulous Doilies: two I want to experiment using modern colours with antique patterns.

New Ventures


I have just discovered Freeform crochet and so I would like to make a bag and a wall-hanging.

Household items


I would like to make more things that are useful, like dishcloths and try some with knitting rather than crochet.

On the sewing front I want to make new curtains for my home as I discovered there are some wonderful fabrics out there.  Also ah hem I would like to have a go at recovering one of my sofas!!!!

Art


I would like to take a foray into making a journal out of fabric, crochet knitting needlework and paint!

Well I think that is enough to go on; knowing me the list will get ever bigger as the year goes on!  I think it is going to be a great productive year with the blog along keeping me motivated.  I look forward to seeing the other participants’ lists!

  5. Sharon, great list! I'm looking forward to seeing all your lovely creations. And I'm especially excited at the moment at the thought of seeing you free-form crochet. It both fascinates and frightens me. I can imagine it is a very artistic experience.

  6. What a great list. I love the colors of your afghan in the top photo. I look forward to seeing your free form. One of my UFOs to finish is a freeform bag from a workshop I took a few years ago.

  7. Ohhh lots of pretties Sharon and I love the idea of vintage patterns with new and modern colour schemes, very retro looking. I can't wait to see the many great creations to come from this corner each YOP week this year, best of luck!

  8. Love all your projects! I am making Frieda's basket for my daughter....it's her favorite artist...or one of them at least. She's also an art teacher and a knitter so I found some Frieda knit markers to go with it. Anyway, I have never joined a CAL or KAL but I love blankets and socks and I always have both on the needles so it would be fun. Let us know the links to them if you have time and I love the pictures you showed! Yes, there are gorgeous fabrics out there too...I have 2 cats that have ruined my furniture but if I recover they will do it again. I need to recover in steel wool fabric! Free-form crochet....you are very creative! Welcome aboard and I'm so glad you've joined us! It's a great, non-judgemental, supportive, inspirational group!
