Kudos to those of you making for yourselves!  I did finish a painting for myself and am working on another but upon looking at my list have not accomplished anything else off it.  perhaps this should be the summer of getting down to crafting for meeeeee Grin

Obviously this may need to be a longer than one year project.

Glad you two are making progress and are not giving up! Smiley  Antidigger I hope you find that big table soon.  Alteredmommy it's great that you have your finished painting.

We had a few things sidetrack our crafting plans.  Our huge picture window that bows outward (loved that view) was so heavy that it was falling outward/downward and pulling the wall with it.  Replacing it became a higher priority.  The size made things tricky, since that size is no longer made (gimongous x huge ... 12 feet wide by 6 feet tall).  A special custom unit frame had to be ordered that contains 3 smaller windows.  The soonest it could be installed was on New Years Eve.  Imagine having a huge hole in the living room wall, the size of 2 open garage doors during the holidays!  Luckily the weather wasn't as bitter at that point.   

This is before: (taken when we first bought the house-- the window seat is almost 2 feet deep)



After (still a work in progress, as trim is needed):



In addition, DH had a stroke in March that paralyzed his left side.  He has since recovered most of his strength with a few residuals.  Priorities and ways of doing things have changed.  I've been able to make a few crafty items and am trying to destash as I have several totes filled with fabric.   Life is good, God is awesome! Smiley

To make a long story short, I'm not done with my list lol

I forgot about this craftalong, too. I still don't really make things for myself Tongue
I do have some fabric and a pattern that I bought to make myself some summer shirts though so I guess I should work on those.

Well crafting for oneself is harder than anticipated so I've taken the year off and hope that we continue to add to our lists of things we gift ourselves.  Even if it takes a few years Grin

I made a tote bag for myself!  As soon as my phone charges up, I'll get some photos.  I'm uber excited about it because it is from my band geek son's band tee shirt from last year (point for recycling), plus I laminated it with iron-on waterproof Heat-n-Bond (point for trying something new).  It also has a zipper pocket that was violated out of an old purse.


I also made a bingo game for the upcoming family reunion.  Instead of the usual numbers on the game boards, there are things associated with the family and with reunions.  DH's father was one of 12 kids.  Each of those names, plus their parents' names, are on the cards... along with other relatives, picnic foods, activities, and locations of some of the families.  It's a blast to play and we look forward to it.  During our move I lost the other set and had to make this new one.
Tip: jigsaw puzzle pieces work well for bingo markers!  Not hard to find a 1500 piece puzzle at a yard sale, and it doesn't matter if there are pieces missing.
