What are your crafting goals for May?

Recommended Posts

I like to cross stitch and read cross stitching blogs. I've noticed that alot of cross stitchers post their stitching goals for the month and then at the end of the month re-evaluate them to see what they've got done. I thought that would be fun to do here.

 

My goals for May are:

1. finish knitting baby sweater (current WIP)

2. finish crocheting baby blanket (current WIP)

3. finish up my vintage cardigan (UFO, I can't get into making myself something. I'm about 90% finished with it.)

4. finish an ornament I'm cross stitching (another UFO, I need really good lighting to do it)

5. make 5 fridgies for my swap partner

6. start working again on a doll I'm sewing for my one daughter (UFO)

 

So what are everyone else's goals??

Finish a mini dragon for my brother-in-law.

Finalize a pattern and get it tested.

After that? I haven't decided.

I'm tempted to try a graph-ghan.

Good idea! I have almost given up on cross stitch ...I almost can see the squares if I take off my glasses and close one eye and hold it about 2 inches from my face:lol:lol:lol

 

So

Finish lapghan for godmother

Finish 5 lapghans for VA Hospital

fridgies for partner

doily for the back of the toilet in the master bathroom

I just ordered my edgery doo today so I am hoping to do a set of pillow cases , embroidered with crochet trim. One pillow sham will say Night Night and hte other Sleep Tight with sweet little bugs and butterflies..flowers etc... I am hoping to do the trim in a soft rose color if I can find some ## 3 thread.

 

That should pretty much keep me busy for May:D

1. Sew at least one skirt. (Finish it really, if my sewing machine will cooperate)

 

2. Make two crocheted handbags for Mothers' Day. Gotta get on the stick.

 

3. Continue crocheting blocks for table covering. Notice that I don't say tablecloth.

 

4. Be ready to rush off to my daughter's when she has this next baby (#5 for her!). OK, so that's not a crafting goal, but I suspect it's gonna take precedence over everything else!

Great idea!

 

My crafting goals for May:

 

1. Finish last "secret pal" project - it was a big one, and with my back problems, I wasn't able to get it done on time. I must admit, after the secret pal swap, and then the Spring Purse Swap right after, I've been a bit lazy the past two days, and haven't worked on it. Back to the grindstone, lol!

 

2. Finish knitting my mom's shawl in time for Mother's Day (ambitious goal) or her trip to her sister's for their birthday at the end of the month (more realistic goal).

 

3. Finish embroidering rose picture for Mom's birthday.

 

4. Finish last few squares of annoying baby blanket; it's officially a UFO at this point and it's a gift, so I must finish it and I have to do it by Mother's Day.

 

5. Re-start work on 63 Squares Afghan

5. Keep working on baby hexagon afghan

7. Almost forgot-rectangle granny for graduation gift

1. Frog the crochet sweater I've been working on, as all the ends are uneven. Restart and hopefully finish, because it works up fast.

 

2. Knit the second sleeve of the Central Park Hoodie I've been working on since the beginning of the year.

 

3. Start knitting a tank top from Knit Simple

 

4. Start embroidering the Stitch Lesson from the Sublime Stitching book.

To finish up the stuff on my current WIP list, and then maybe stop starting new things in time to work on my long sweater before next Fall gets here. :lol Seriously though, I dunno for certain. I have tons of things on my "WIM" list that maybe I will tackle, like patterns from all the great books and magazines I have been picking up lately. My biggest goal is to use up a lot of my yarn stash I've collected up now (so I can go do it all over again LOL). I now have enough patterns to inspire me to do just that, I feel. :hook

My list is comparatively short.

 

Finish the life-sized crocheted greyhound (which is more like a whippet size!).

Sew a couple of lap quilts for my charitable sewing group.

Maybe block some snowflakes I already have made.
