14 in 14

I am an infrequent visitor to Mumsnet but I. Stopped by this week and have been seduced by a couple of great ideas. The interesting journal52 project and a challenge to complete 14 projects in 2014. …I am an inveterate starter and a terrible finisher. This is just what I need. Here’s my plans thus far. This is over and above my house sampler btw. Yep, I’m a sucker for punishment, clearly.

1) crochet handwarmers – I’m halfway through these
2) keyrings for my etsy shop – the idea is there, the prototype is setting now
3) journal52 art folder link here
4) upcycling a vintage quilt top I have into a proper, finished quilt
5) upcycling an old chair for my craft room/office
6) do an oil painting I can hang in my house
7) draw/write a comic
8) knit a shrug from a Rowan pattern I have just bought
9) make a gingerbread house
10) learn life drawing
11) Learn how to spin yarn
12) weave my own fabric
13) print my own fabric
14) learn Lino printing

  1. I’m definitely conquering lino printing this year! It beat me a few years ago, but I’m going to beat it into submission this year!


    1. Post your efforts…they’ll be brilliant I bet


  2. Go, you!
    Life drawing’s no different to any other type of drawing once you get over any embarassment – except for having to work quickly, I suppose.


    1. I need to find a class first!
