I’m not one to usually make resolutions, but I was inspired by watching NanaCathy‘s progress on 15 for 2015 and her follow-up post of 16 for 2016.

I am in no way as ambitious as she is, but thought if I could come up with a list of 16 projects I wanted to finish during the year, it might motivate me to get to work on them and maybe complete a few.

There are a few long-term WiPs lurking among the bins and boxes of my stash.  Finishing these, and doing some stash busting, started the list rolling.

WIPs: These have all been started, some are years old

  • Tulip embroidery 
  • Tapestry needlepoint 
  • Aran afghan 

Stash busters: Projects I have materials to make, but have not started

  • Weaving project
  • Quilt
  • Hospice afghan
  • Holiday table topper embroidery
  • Feather tree felt embroidery

New skills: Knitting scares me 

  • Knitting
  • Natural dyes
  • Wood working
  • Cheese making

A new twist: Stretching to try new things on skills I have already learned

  • Crochet a garment
  • Springerle
  • Silk-ribbon embroidery design
  • Plarn 

I know I’ll have a bunch of other projects pop up along the way, but I’m hoping this list will help me focus.
