Encouragement for Getting Gifts Made in 2015


Recommended Posts

Well, it's the eve before New Year's Eve and many of us already have a list of things we want to accomplish during 2015, so we're once again at the starting line.

The word "encouragement" that I used in the topic title this time around seemed just right for our small group. I know that with a bit of the "E" word we can accomplish mighty things!

 

Ready....Set...Go! :clap  :clap  :clap

Here are my 2 first figures. I used cotton yarn. They are about 6 inch high. Of course they need clothes and.. faces, but it's just the first step.   I decided I want them to have black safety eyes.

The buttons came in today's mail and I got them sewed on. They are a little heavier than I wanted them to be, but I think they'll do ok. This is the Eloise Baby Sweater in 6-12 months and 2T. I made t

I have a few things I know I want to do this year.

 

1) I want to make some foods for the girls as they play house and picnics and stuff. I've found patterns, just need to make it a priority.

2) I need to finish the girls' blankets I started last March.

3) The daughter of 2 very dear friends is getting married in June. I'd like to make her something small.

4) I want to make an afghan for my mom, probably purples and a bit of green.

5) I would like to do something small for Christmas gifts, but I don't even want to think about that yet. :)

With my youngest son getting married in May,  grandbaby 31 due in June, and Grandbaby  #2 due in July... I need to get hookin!

Thanks for the laugh after the double-take----you certainly have lots of crocheting to do without having 31 grandbabies! Congratulations on all three events!

Good morning peeps!

 

Welcome to the new and old faces!

 

Love the lists I've seen, and Ratdog I like your idea of breaking down the goals to monthly chunks. I think I need to try that...as soon as I come out from under the pile of my current WIPS :lol

 

So, my to do list:

A school themed lapghan for a fundraiser at the end of March (I picked up the yarn yesterday)

 

At least one more item for an Autism fundraiser in April

 

...and after this, I'm not sure. There are a couple of things I have in mind, but need the ambition!

Right now I am in the mist of making Bunting babies and another small doll for a Cancer Hospital for kids getting chemo.

 

I hope to start a set of placemats for my SIL for next Christmas.

 

I also have to find the yarn color for the next tote and get that started.

Ok, Mary Jo, please tell me exactly what a bunting baby is.  Sounds like something we could make for our Crafts Shows!

The pattern was given to me by Peggy85225, it is a pattern she made up.  Here is where you can see the a picture of some made up by Peggy herself.  I am making some for her.  They are so cute and so easy and they only take a couple of hours to make.

Happy January 1st!!

We spent the morning putting away Christmas decorations and decluttering the garage and kitchen area...it feels good!

What great projects, Mary Jo! I have a book of animals to crochet which might be good projects,esp for summer time, and if I don't have places where they can be donated I can save them for someone's next fundraiser.

 

I like this idea....

Awesome project!

 

Once the fingerless mitts are done (working on the second glove now) I'll be starting the graphghan for the school fundraiser. All I need to do is plan where the letters will go on the ghan and I'll be off and running!

 

Happy hooking everyone!

Can't wait to see the finished pair. the first one is so pretty.

I went to Joann's today and bought yarn for the teenage mutant ninja turtle and the market bags. Used the 15% off coupon and the yarn was already 25% off so I spent $10 and change on yarn for two gifts.
