    Finished the dress. Which I would like to count it as 100. As I’m so impressed that I managed it.

    Also jam made - one pan over the kitchen floor some made it to jars.

    I’m never going to make my target. But I’m Heading in the right direction.

    Well I didn't get far this last year due to real life (and a huge amount of mess due to remodelling the house).

    I managed to complete one skirt from stashed fabric.

    I have nearly completed a knee blanket for a friend from my wool stash. This was intended for me in the beginning but she has more need. It has took so long because on seeing my crochet DD requested a double blanket crocheted granny style for her room at uni.

    A huge number of squares are crocheted so I just need to put it all together. I am intending to get both projects done for New Years Eve which is very doable but the big blanket isn't made from wool from thee grand stash.

    As soon as I see the thread for 2019 I will be rejoining. I am comitted to making all handmade christmas gifts next year. I hope to do better than 2 items.:D

    All the best for the rest of the festive season.:beer:

    I'm so proud to see that this thread is still helping other crafters all these years later and of each of you for all your achievements.
    I have just fell off the wagon and bought A LOT of things in the sales so have just started a new thread ready for 2019.
    I look forward to seeing lots of you over there -I need all the motivation I can get :)

    OMG I have so much fabric I just found that I must have bought years ago. I will definitely be using all of that up before I buy more. My weakness is Liberty print fabric fat quarters!...

    Could I have the link for the new thread as I can't find it? I'm getting all the old links.
    Sometimes you just have to throw on a crown and remind them who they are dealing with
