2016: A Year of Crafting

I thought it would be fun to look back at 2016 and do a little round-up of all the things that I made last year. Overwhelmingly I crocheted, both quick makes and finishing up larger projects, and it should come as no surprise that more crafting was done in the colder months as the garden really took up my time in the the summer.

I've arranged my finished projects into collages with links to the blog posts below.

{January - March}

{April - May}

{August - October}

{November - December}

Wow, seeing it all in one place is quite encouraging, I actually made quite a bit last year.

I also spent a lot of time in the kitchen cooking using our local produce box and I shared all that in my weekly posts; cooking became quite the creative outlet for me this year which was a little unexpected, but a lot of fun.

I also can not help but notice that I did not do much scrapbooking this past year. I am not completely sure how I feel about this - part of me is okay with it, part of me misses this hobby. Maybe I'll have more to say about this soon...

Looking forward, I have a few creative plans for the year...
  • finish my wreath which has been somewhat neglected these last few months....
  • I'm working on this and this right now, close to being finished on both fronts....
  • I ordered the yarn to make this blanket...
  • I also would like to do a little sewing. I have all the supplies to make a bag just sitting in the cupboard waiting for me to get myself in gear...
  • And I would also like to make a crochet wall hanging...
Looking at what I've done and planning what I want to do has left me quite inspired. I'm off to do some crafting, talk later....
