End of the week round up

This week I mailed off my charity project of the month to the purple stitch project! I was in love with this mermaid and it was rather hard to give up. But it is going to a good cause:)

Next up I started my charity for the month of April. I am donating to SAFE this month(Stuffed Animals for Emergencies.) I have finished so far this monster. He reminds me of a crayon. I love it!

Last night I started a bear version of the monster pattern. So far this is what I have done

As I was making these animals all I could think of was all the possibilities for animals in a rectangle shape like this. I might have to design one of my own by the end of the month.

Finished Object Friday

This week I pulled out a cross stitch book and decided to work through some of them. It is called 365 Tiny Cross Stitch Designs. Basically there is a cross stitch design for every day of the year. I am picking one from every month that I like to work on. This week I finished January and the one from February. I thought of doing one a month for the whole year, but then I worked ahead. You can never really tell what you will feel like doing at any given time. Since next month I am going to be doing a blanket for project linus as my monthly charity donation I thought why not get ahead on the cross stitch a month while I was interested in it? So here are the two I finished.

Work in progress Wednesday

This is now the fifth day I haven’t left the house because of snow and cold. I am taking full advantage of it though and working on my knitting. I am struggling a little. I got a knitters beginning kit from Sam’s club and of course the yarn in it would be dark and wavy. The worse thing for new knitters or crocheting. I remember when I first learned to crochet. I wanted to make a baby blanket first. I had to start at least two times(that I can remember) before I finally got the hang of it. I started with a light color yarn purple but it was wavy. So far my knitting has been ripped out multiple times. I am trying to make this basic scarf from my beginners book. Yeah beginners. :P Anyway I am pretty sure it has multiple holes in it and yarn overs(no I do not know how to do a yarn over in knitting) Here it is!

Work in progress wednesday

Today is the first WIP Wednesday of the year. I started. I finished one section of a blanket for Warm up America. Warm Up America is my charity of January that I am donating to. I have some leftover blue yarn that I am using. I am going to see how many rectangle sections I can finish with the scraps :) I am not going to overextend myself and try to make so many items in a month. Though I do like challenges like that. I am just going to get done what I get done and be happy with that.

A new year…a new me.

Alright it is a new year and here we go. I have a few goals I wrote up. One random and the other ones serious goals. Last year I said I was going to learn to knit in 2013. Well, I did start to knit. Though I didn’t really learn to knit. So that goal is back on the list. I am not going to make any promises about this blog. Because as I was telling a friend tonight. I actually seem to do better if I don’t make any promises on how much I will or wont write. Once I make a promise on it all of a sudden it seems like a chore.

My goals for 2014

take a sleigh ride(the random one. Have to keep things interesting)
sew a skirt
learn to knit(finish that scarf!)
take a quilt class
go to at least one crochet meet up
donate to one charity a month
do block of the month
