Another year gone, and a new one just beginning. The start of a new year always brings with it a sense of hope and determination to meet, if not exceed, all of ones personal goals.
This year I have chosen to join the #sewmystash2015 initiative and cut down the ever-growing list of UFO's and WIP's that are overtaking my sewing space. I'm also joining A Lovely Year of Finishes hosted by Fiber of All Sorts and Sew Bittersweet Designs, in addition to Finish Along 2015 hosted this year by On the Windy Side.
My A Lovely Year of Finishes goal for January is to finish my pink and orange version of Mum's Quilt-As-You-Go pattern, Diamond Advantage. The rows are completed, I just need to join them together and bind the quilt. The first few classes she has done with this pattern have been hugely successful. Once I can find a spare moment to set our Etsy store up the pattern will be available for purchase :)
This will be included in my Finish Along Quarter One list along with:
5. My second giant Granny Square blanket: I'm currently onto my third out of nine balls of yarn. I'm making this one to be very similar to this one that I made last year, except instead of using multiple yarn colors I'm just using a variegated lime green, olive green, pink yarn. This one will be for my mother who has mentioned on a number of occasions how much she loves the other one I made.
Velvet Morning. I hadn't planned on starting this one for awhile, but when I visited my LYS I found the perfect yarn for it - The Fiber Company's Knightsbridge. It would have to be my new favorite yarn, and I will definitely be using it again!
