Thanks so much for all your inspiring posts. here are a few things that are definitely on my to do list!
1 – One a Month
I had been thinking of trying to make bits for the children’s stockings throughout the year as this last year I had left them until after all the other gifts were made and then only had time for a couple each. Well, then I saw this blog of Jennifers on Thisltebear . She mentions her Martha Stewart Living Magazine and how she hopes to make and or bake something every month. Well I hope to join her and make one stocking present each for the children each month. I hope to blog what I have mad for Josh at the end of each month, Abi’s will have to wait until the end of the year because she is following me!! I would love to also either make or complete a me project each month but I’m wondering if that is pushing it a bit far. I’ll see how it goes!!
2 – Count Your Blessings Jar
Abi did a memories bottle last year which she smashed last week, but this Blessings Jar, by Chris on UK City Crafter, I really love!! I’m yet to decide how to decorate it. I’ve got a few ideas I’m mulling over – Crochet cover? ( Lucy at Attic 24 has a lovely one). Country style? (Hessian, gingham, natural ribbon or raffia)? Dainty? ( white with embroidery flowers etc) or maybe tie it in with my fabric collage picture and quote I made for the lounge!! (I’ll try to share a picture of those soon) Which do you prefer or have you any more ideas??
3 – PJ Case
Another item that really caught my eye is this PJ case by Sandra at Cherryheart. I am thinking of it for my nieces. I have had lots of ideas, patchwork, applique or even shaped (owl, russian doll, teddy head). My latest thought is to do a doll or animal with a long dress and the dress holds the PJ’s. What do you think?
4 – Valentine Sweet Heart
I loved this Heart by Lucy at Attic 24 the moment I saw it but I have so many ideas and WIP’s for myself already that I put it to the back of my mind but it soon worked it’s way forward again!! I gave it a bit more thought and decided that this could be a great pressie for a little girl’s bedroom, so that too is on my to do list!
I would love any thoughts on the direction I could take these projects.
