Making 'do-able' plans for 2019


As the clock ticked over into a new year, I sat here knitting wondering how I was going to get my head around on the crafty things that I want to do vs things that I actually do.

I always run out of time making gifts.

Sometimes I have just have no motivation.

Sometimes, I just don't know what to make or where to start.

A waste precious crafty time being lazy and then I hate myself for the wasted time.

It was a fun year

I love looking back at the things I've made over the past year. Some things I'd forgotten that I'd made (because they'd been gifted), somethings I use all the time and just a couple turned out be … well, bla.
How was your year last year? Did you enjoy it? Did you miss out on anything that you'd planned on doing?
Wanna take a look at what I did? Yep, of course you do!  Let's start with the above, my favourite make of the year.

Teatime Unicorn Romper

Cuteness alert!
I made this romper for my daughter as she often complains that she doesn't have any trampoline clothes!  .. apparently, the majority of her clothes slip/fall down when bouncing on the trampoline and she doesn't like wearing dresses on it as she likes her knees protected.  Solution: a romper!

It’s a busy time of year for us Makers.
You might be making gifts for family or friends. 

You might be making things for sale.

Dr Who Scarf










Ok, I got just a little bit excited to see that the 'new' Dr Who has a scarf!  I'm a big fan of the original Dr Who Scarf but this new one is just as pretty...and much more me!  
So I've done up a rough colour chart of yarns (see above) so I can try to make myself one and if you want to make one too then please feel free to use my draft!
Colours are from here & the colourways are as follows:
