As the year closes I’m looking back and reflecting on my achievements and my learnings for 2019. As some of you know, for a while now I’ve been trying to work on projects that recycle and use up scraps and stash items, whilst keeping purchases of new materials to a minimum.
In total I’ve completed 24 projects and I’m very pleased to say only 4 have been made new from materials bought for that project: the baby sweater, floral quilt, my K6 sweater and the elephant quilt. Unfortunately no pics of the K6 sweater, but it is finished, I promise.
I’ve made 8 projects from stash yarn and fabric:
The pinwheel baby quilt – which did include some scrap fabric too…
13 From scraps:
And the Angry Bird golf club cover…
All in all I’m pretty pleased with the balance of scraps/stash vs new materials used. Completing 24 projects averages out at 2 a month – given some are far more time consuming than others and that I’ve been focus on drawing too for the last 3 months – I’m also pretty pleased with that.
Hope you’ve found plenty of time for you creativity this year.
Until next time,
