    16 projects in 16 in memory of Soulie 28th Dec 15 at 7:29 PM
    I started a 14 in 14 thread in memory of Soulie who was a dearly loved member of the MSE crafting community. It was very popular so I repeated it in 2015 and now by request here is the 2016 version.

    There aren't really any rules other than the general MSE ones such as "be nice"

    The guidelines are:
    • any and all crafts are welcome; the diversity is a large part of the appeal of the thread
    • 16 is a suggested target not an absolute goal, do more or less as suits you
    • we love photos though they aren't compulsory
    • there is a Flickr group for photos. you have to be a member but there are a few administrators so requests are usually approved quite quickly https://www.flickr.com/groups/2489278@N21/?added=4
    • if you've used a pattern it's nice to credit the designer or magazine but please don't ask members to contravene copyright by asking for copies
    • all MSEers love freebies so share links to these if you can
    • sharing tips and hints is great as we all love to learn
    • enjoy!

    So sorry that you're not having the best time just now, Charly.

    So far, there isn't a new thread.

    Hello all. Green tiger that carousel blanket looks amazing as do those crochet blankets Mrs MP and btw thanks for your good wishes. Dad has had two chemotherapy treatments and tolerated the last one much better. I've spent some good chunks of time with him and my mum. Now back at home enjoying Easter sunshine and my home. Such simple pleasures. One more card made https://flic.kr/p/SEKVZc for my last 'baby' who is now 18! I am also planning a quilt but that's in the design stages still. As long as I complete it in his 18th year as I did for my daughter I'll be happy. Sill plugging away at the cross stitch. I think I will post a list as it keeps me on track.
    Proud to be dealing with my debts! DF Nerd # 1475

    Morning all
    Hope everyone is well
    I've done some visible mending on a pair of jeans for ds1 he's really pleased with those and I'm looking forward to adding more to them.
    I made three fabric hearts from stash but have already lost them as dd2 wanted them for her partnersmums wedding next week.

    Thanks, Charly. Glad you're dad is coping better with the chemo. It is exhausting. I love the vintage look of your birthday card. Have fun with the quilt.

    mrs-m, I hate mending, but I do get a perverse sense of satisfaction when it's done! The instant theft of your hearts is a sign that your work is fab. Well done.

    I have a baby quilt to plan, but I've promised myself I'd get some trip pics printed and into an album a friend gave just for that purpose.
