2016 in review

Let's see... my goals for 2016.

  1. Turn yarn/fabric stash into finished projects. I figure I should cut down my stash in my closet. Yarn/fabric is bulkier and heavier than my cross stitch so I may concentrate on those.
  2. Get back to dancing. Which should help improve my unmet goal (2) from last year.
  3. I will get back to insanity. But the height of my bed plus my new lamp hasn't made working on GK's easy to use the magnifying glass.
  4. Learn to knit. 

  1. Yeah, didn't happen.
  2. I did this for about 9 months. Then I bought the apartment and couldn't afford both.
  3. Not quite. My new stitching place is the right height, but I need another pillow to keep my from sliding away from the arm.
  4. Nope. Didn't have the time. I have all the materials I need but never quite got around to it.

I did however finish 12 crochet projects, 4 cross stitch projects, and 2 I'll categorize as other. Not bad for having a full time job again.

For 2017 my goals are:
  1. Work on a GK/HAED.
  2. Finish some kits in my closet that can be displayed in my apartment.
  3. Learn to knit.
  4. Attempt to be less sedentary.

Christmas presents have been started

I spent the week working on the angel in thread crochet. Today I worked on a lapghan in blanket yarn. Big difference in size.

Late, but worth it

In the Garden is finished!


And I decided to take a picture of my new craft closet (of doom). Not everything is in there. There's still a few boxes on my floor and the various bins that were in other closets at my parents. And all sewing patterns are elsewhere.
