2021 Crafty Plans, February Update

February is almost over and I’m finally getting to my crafty plan update. I went into extensive detail on my plans here, for quilty here, for knitty here, and for cross stitch here.

Here’s the short list:

Quilts –

  • Jan Krentz – Diamond Star
  • Bonnie Hunter – Grassy Creek – this is the only project I’ve made any progress on and I’m on clue 4. See here for the most recent post.
  • Scrappy Stars Around the Corner
  • Dancing with the Stars
  • Radiant Jewel
  • Gardenvale
  • Allietare
  • Civil War Diary Quilt

Hand work

  • Hawaiian block – finished top. At the moment, it’s hanging around where I can enjoy it. I think it will be a pillow but for now I’m letting it sit while I contemplate what I want it to be.
  • Raining Cats and Dogs – I work on this every week but it’s a slow slow process. I’m stitching the buttons on and doing some laborious hand quilting. This is going to take forever.
  • Rainbow Garden – I’ve not touched this in about a year.
  • Simple Days BOM – I started this and you can see my update here.
  • Halloween quilt – I’ve not touched this in many years. 🙂

Handwork was not on my crafty list at all but it seems that is what I’m drawn to at the moment. We have to go where the creativity takes us. 🙂

Knitting

  • My Weasley Sweater – my Q1 goal was to knit the back and I finished that. So I’ve set this aside until Q2.
  • 24 days of Christmas Shawl from Jimmy Bean – finished! I’m working on weaving the ends.
  • Water Lily
  • Beanie for Kayla
  • Tranquil Mist
  • Orient Express
  • Blue Hat

Cross Stitching

  • Gamer Nouveau – I’ve worked on this almost exclusively and I’ll need to provide you with a more current update. I worked on it so much I have no urge to stitch on this at all. But I’m so close to a page and row finish that I’m feeling like I may just keep going until I do.
  • A Stitch In Time
  • Shades of Red
  • Autumn Owls – a bit of work on this. Not enough to see much of a difference
  • Titania
  • Tsuru kame – a couple hundred stitches put on this one. Again, just not enough to actually see change. 🙂
  • Unicorn

And I realize that I didn’t even mention my to be quilted list… here.

  • Staycation is done… practically. The binding has been sewn on by machine but I’m working on applique’ing the label. My goal is to get that finished before we head out of town on Friday.
  • Good Fortune
  • Glam Clam
  • SoCal Quilt Run Area 4 Mystery Quilt from 2012
  • SoCal Quilt Run Area 4 Mystery Quilt from 2012
  • Provence
  • saved top from the august treasure hunt some years ago

I hope this isn’t so boring for you as it’s simply a short (but very long) list to quickly refer to everything I’m working on.

Happy Crafting!

Melanie
