10 things: Creative Goals 2012 ...

1. To make curtains for Lily's bedroom. So this might not be the most creative goal, but I've had the fabric for 6 months now. I started them yesterday.

2. Make this cushion


This is the jelly roll I've chosen - the fabrics are so lovely in it.
3. Crochet a blanket. I actually started this before Christmas but progress is quite slow - I don't think I should have tried to make it so wide. Am pleased with how it's going though and it should be ready for next Winter!

4. Weekly photo challenge with my sister as previous post.

5. Take 12 "Take 12 photos on the 12th of each month. Scrapbook 144 memorable moments this year." I try to stay away from these sorts of challenges but I've found myself being drawn in!!! I enjoyed 'Scrap Your Day' that I completed nearly 3 years ago, so it'll be good to have something as comparison.



6. To make more She Art (and mixed media in general) - I've promised some for Mia's bedroom.

7. To do a LO a week for a challenge website. My favourites are:

Sketchy Thursday
Scrapbook Circle
PencilLines
Stuck?

8. To learn to freestyle machine embroidery. I've had a little go, but I think I need to get a proper attachment for my machine. I really like Poppy Treffry's work.


9. Make more cards. I don't know why I always struggle with this, maybe it's the lack of sentiment stamps and stickers.

10. Give more handmade presents. I've got a library of patterns of things I can make now and I especially like the ones from Gingercake - the owl cushion is next on my list.

Ooh lots of fab projects to get your teeth into. Those cushions look brilliant and I have that Poppy Treffry book, it's great.
Maybe you'd like to sign up for a Make a Month in 2012 to help you stay on track :o)

Fay that's a really good list! I must finish both She Art classes this year before the videos disappear from the site and also finish all the classes I started in 2011!!! Thanks for the comment on my blog...I love the mug cosies too! x

Great take on 10 on the 10th! I enjoyed reading about your crafty goals and could see myself create a list like that :)

I too want to "she Art " more when I get time & crochet is my new passion.
Good luck with your projects, can't wait to see them on your blog.

Wonderful inspiration there! I love that cushion but I've never heard of a jelly roll before!

Oh I loved that cushion. My aim is to finish the crochet blanket I started 2 years ago, I just have to join it all together... This year I will!
