The year that was 2013
Every year I like to take stock of my (craft) progress.
Not because I am a masochist, but because
it helps me draw up a plan of action for the next 12 months.
Some years my project plan is fairly broad in nature
e.g. it might simply say – do more crochet.
Other years I fastidiously pop projects onto my Springpad boards,
and timeline them.
Every year I ignore my plan.
Thanks to outside interference (non craft/blogland stuff)
2013 proved to be a very slack year.
Or so I thought.
Looking through my work
it appears I managed to post up 36 projects.
Yes, I am as astounded as you are.
More bewildering though is the fact that a third of them
are crochet & knitting projects.
Some time in 2013 it seems,
I managed to knock out 9 crochet project.
I don’t even remember picking up my hook, let alone making a shrug,
blanket, mittens and a bunch of other stuff.
it appears I got comfy with knitting,
learned to basket weave, and how to smack about metal
(for the purpose of making jewellery).
Weird, but true.
So what for 2014?
1. Take memory boosting vitamins
2. Do whatever it was I did in 2013 and then some more
It sounds vague I know,
but I have a whole load of projects lined up from 2013
in Springpad, on Pinterest and somewhere deep in the mind grapes
that I can (hopefully) access at anytime.
All I really need to do now
is pick a theme or two for the year ahead;
or perhaps a colour scheme
or an era?
Sidebar – We might be moving again,
so it may be quiet for a little while here.
Not to worry though, if 2013 was anything to go by,
projects will be made & posted.
If I haven’t said it already…
Happy New Year!
