I haven't been active at all the past couple years on Craftster, but I'm going to give this a go and see if it helps me stay more in tune with my creating, or at least give me a place to refer to when I'm at a loss of what to do!

List to come.

Some of my list, I'll come back later to add more:

1. A basket for WIPs in my craftroom.
2. Crochet something cozy for myself now that winter has set in.
3. Case for my bullet journal and pens
4. Crochet a chapstick keep so I stop losing it
5. Sew a footed tuffet
6. Sew a footed tuffet for my aunt
7. Make new pillow covers for my livingroom couch
8. Crochet one of my star wars amigurumi patterns
9. Make a crochet hook roll
10. Make Teesha Moore patches
11. Start an art journal
12. A birthday present for my coworker's baby's birthday

13. A Pussyhat for the Women's March

My first project for the year!



Made this shirt for my son. I hope he likes it! He's been out of the country for the holidays, but he'll be back tomorrow!  Woot!

I think I'm going to try this finally! Ack! Not entirely sure how it works, but here's a few things I want to get done this year. Some of these are more handy than crafty, but I consider them to be similar uses of time. I know other things will pop up!

Q1
Finish my last xmas 2016 gift (oops!). I need to pick up a tool that I had to special order.
Oh! Make that two last gifts  ^. One is a collaboration with The Manflesh for his mom and we're having it printed professionally, but still
Install a handrail on our front deck stairs
Modify the master closet a bit
Swap out the coat-hanging situation in the mudroom
Make a t-shirt quilt for a friend
sew a dog coat (x2!)
Leather bracelet
fan art for my man's novel that comes out in Feb
Sew a people coat for self
replace light fixtures in master closet and 2nd and 3rd bedrooms
Get to know my Cricut (could lead to several projects)
Sew draft blockers for two ext doors
Replace rotty pot holders

Q2
Modify and refinish cabinetry in the main bath
Modify and refinish wall shelf for main bath (came out of laundry room)
Make a t-shirt quilt for a friend
make blinds for the guest room windows
make lamps from vintage thermoses
Modify old screen doors, new hardware, paint
Make myself a bookplate stamp
make new curtain rods for liv-din
tiebacks for live-din curtains
birthday gifts for some of the spring "babies"
bedside tables for guest room
stuff for etsy shop
commissioned pillow

tees for The ManFlesh's dudes' visit[/i]

Q3
add door to wood shed - (D'oh! won't happen this year, because we got a couple of surprise deliveries of firewood a few months before usual)
repaint guest room ceiling, perhaps walls
build "set" for photoshoot of ManFlesh's 2nd book, out in October *kinda
repaint bistro set on balcony
repaint patio side table
sew knit shirt(s)

tissue box for guest room
[/s]
Make a couple shirts
Make a "costume" for Worldcon.


Q4
Make holiday cards (I got a start in Jan!)


I probably won't make a new topic for each of these, because that handrail is not at all photogenic or cool, just a safety measure for our Danger Stairs, etc.

I ended up doing lots of projects that weren't on the list, particularly in Q4. I feels weird to add them now just to cross them out. Not that I don't do that on hand written lists just for the satisfaction of crossing them off!

Your stencils are just so crisp and unique...bet he loves that t-shirt!

Sounds like you have a lot of home projects, TheMistressT!  I always look forward to those...I have a few I need to do this year.
