A Year of Projects Update - week 23

 I missed last week, and to be be honest I haven't really made much progress of note this week!  I thought I would check in and report on projects I would like to do.

I am making progress on Saknes - I am making my way down the sleeves,  but it is slow going.

I am also now onto number 6 washmitt of 7 so I'm nearly there!  

After that I  want to knit one petpal for Daniel and then I can concentrate on things for me!

So plans: 

I want to plan a make nine for the new year.

I want to do a needle felting project and do my very first cross stitch.

I would also really love to sew a Christmas dress as well as finish my wips!!

I  did do the Christmas Dec's 🎄 this week.

And that is my week really.   I'm hoping I get a bit of motivation back this week and I get a few things completed for next week's update!  Hope everyone has a great week.

A Year of Projects Update - week 21

 Oh my!  Another week has flashed by and I don't feel like I have done that much.

I have done a few more rows on Saknes.

I have finished another wondrous wash mitt - just another 4 to go!

Otherwise, I have started sewing my next skirt - a must as I needed the pattern pieces for my Christmas dress that I would like to start soon.

I also finished a project that has been ongoing for a while.  When my grandma passed away and my mum was going through her things, she asked me if there was anything I would like.  The only thing I said I wouldn't mind is a picture that always hung in hers and my grandads living room.  Well mum found it for me but it was in a bit of a state, having been hung and moved around for about 50 years.  This week I finally got myself together and with some supplies from a picture framer got it back on the wall with as many of the original fittings as possible.

So that is my week - hope you all have  great one!

A Year of Projects Update - week 20

 It's going to be a very short check in this week!  I have managed to make progress on some projects but I haven't achieved anything of note and haven't even taken a photo.

I have done a bit on Saknes and am now on the bottom ribbing.   I will photo it next week when hopefully I will have finished the body.  This week I may purchase some buttons for it.

I have put some rows on my garter blanket  but not as many as I would have liked, so let's wait till next week with that one as well.

I have completed another wondrous washmitt which is the same as the last so no picture there.  I have cast on another as I need to make 7 in total.

I did cut out my next hacked Esma skirt, and just need to get on with sewing it up... maybe next week!

And that really is that -, I made some chocolate orange cakes but ate them before a picture could be taken!

I hope everyone is well - I shall up my blogging game next week!
