Hi everyone, this was an idea we had on the cross stitch thread last year, but after discussing it we decided that it would be a good idea to include other crafts as many of us in that thread did other crafts too.

The idea basically is to complete 13 projects in 2013. These projects can be cross stitch, cards, jewellery, knitting, anything that you make really!
You can also 'carry over' projects from the previous year, so any WIP's can count!

For smaller projects such as cards, you can decide whether each card is 1 project, or a certain number of them are. For example I will probably count all Christmas cards as 1 project and all the other cards as 1 project. But like I say, it's up to you!

Oh and don't worry if you don't complete your 13 projects by the end of the year, you can always carry then over in to 2014 :D

INFORMATION:


How to share your pics from FLIKR:

1) Go to the picture you want to show us click the 'Share This' button on the top left of the picture, this will show you a number of options and the one you need is called 'Grab the HTML/BBCode', Tick the button for BBCode and it'll convert the code to what you need.
2) Copy the text in the box and paste it into a new post on MSE and it should have everything you need to insert the image into your post. You can check this by clicking Preview Message.

    Great idea- I had decided to do something like this and have planned to do jewelry making this month and candles holders next month. I already make cards and I like the idea of counting Birthday cards as a project and Christmas cards as a project. That is more than enough to start on- I have a ton of sewing projects in the pipeline too.

    Would it be better to give us all a number? That way it's easier for you to update our totals.

    That's basing this on loads of people joining in and us all losing track :rotfl:

    No, it's fine, I can just use Control + F to find a person by name on the list.

    Unless everyone of couse wants a number?
