Im very blessed in that I dont have to go back to work until Monday (yippeeee!!!!!) so Im still enjoying the hols. Im off for a jolly with DH and DD in a bit but before I go I would like to introduce an idea that I have been mulling over during the holiday.
I am, by nature, quite an impatient person - although everything I do, at work, at home etc requires shed-loads of patience! Hence when Im crafting I tend to always go for fairly small scale projects, something that can be completed reasonably quickly. And there is always a need for these quick crafty fixes, whether it be crafting something for a gift, something to cheer up a dull corner in the house, or whatever. But...I always admire (and lets be honest, envy - albeit in an entirely appropriate way!!) those of you who take on big projects, and stick them out to the end. For example, blankets, patchwork and so on.
Soooo...I thought I would set up a little challenge for myself which I would love you to join me in if you would like to.
Amongst all the many quick fix crafting projects I am going to try to complete a few much bigger scale projects during this year.
These will (hopefully) be:
- My biggest cross-stitch project for many a long year, it will measure 16x16 inches and is chock-full of stitches
- A crochet throw
- A patchwork throw - this may be a lap quilt or something a bit bigger, will see how it goes
I will update you all with pics of progress (or lack of, hence requiring a bloggy kick up the rear end!!) of whichever big project Im working on at the end of each month (or thereabouts, no need to feel pressurised if not on time), and hopefully those of you that join the challenge will do the same. We will therefore be able to log the journey made towards crafting something big and wonderful! And encourage each other as we go.
I do hope you will join me!
