One of my resolutions for 2013 was to finish off all my unfinished craft projects. Some of them had been hanging round for decades (literally) so I was in great need of putting a stop on starting new things, and instead, finishing them. Here’s how 2013 went:
Nothing. Although I did have a broken wrist and as non-crafting excuses go, that’s quite a good one. And I was raring to go for:
Peregrine Jumper part 1. It was way too big for my child, so I made another straight away. Started 2013. Finished 2013.
I also put a mostly finished jumper in the bin. I had finished most of it. The front and back and half a sleeve were done, then I ran out of yarn. I half-heartedly looked out for some more, but I really didn’t like it any more. So Jumper. Started 2002. Binned 2013, never to be finished.
AND (this is why this post is so far into January)
January (so far)
A furry blanket. This was another UFO I had completely forgotten about, but resurfaced during the year. I so wanted to get it finished in 2013, but I didn’t quite manage it. Today I laid it out neatly to get a photo, but Princess decided she liked it too. See those cat toys? They are usually stashed behind the sofa in Princess’s little hidey hole, but she obviously wanted to lay claim to this blanket. Started 2010. Finished 2014.
That is all. I have no works in progress that have been begun before this year. I have had a few hours with absolutely nothing on the go. Of course I couldn’t stay that way for long!
