    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!

    Well done Mrs MP - don’t know how you do it. Are you up for 18 in 2018? I’ve made two cards and am just updating my list for this year. Thanks for your good wishes. I’ve had two good bits of family news for 2018 - so a better start than an end x
