YOP 2021 - 2022

Thank you Becki for the graphic!  Here we are again!  I am excited for this YOP but in my case it is more like "golden oldies".  I revisited all my past YOPs and realized how much I had not gotten done, how many WIPs I had buried somewhere in my house, and also, how many things I wanted to make and never did. I went through all my past YOPs and figured I have about 30 different categories of "making" that I dabble in.  There may be 3 items in each category: a present WIP, an old WIP and a new project.  The old WIPs may not show up right away as I have yet to clean out my craft's room and unearth many of them but when I do they will be put on the list.  In actuality, there is only one new project this year (so far...lol) and that is the Jelly Roll blanket and there is a KAL by the Bakery Bears as it is Kay Jone's design.  It goes until the end of August.

I know, it's a bit much but then I figure, if you're going to dream, you should dream BIG! Reach for the stars!

I do have a few finishes this week and some treasures came in the mail!

Here are the WIPs I worked on this week..........my Giant Granny Square blanket........it's getting bigger!

my redwork sampler..........

and I have a finish except for the beading.........the Pumpkin Witch Halloween ornament

As for treasures........I did receive my needles for beading and for doll making............but the big treasure is my Halloween Kit that I ordered and had to reserve several months ago............I have all the materials including the binding and the backing.........

Here's the panel......

and here's the backing........it's called Kitty Corn and is by Urban Chiks for Moda.  I love every fabric they come out with because it is always vintage.  I have never ordered a quilt kit before but I am so thrilled with this one!

I apologize for the length of this post but actually, it is something I refer back to during the year.  I hope you are all as excited as I am to begin another wonderful and productive Year of Projects!

Happy Trails!!!

P.S.  I have been watching Bakery Bear's podcasts for years and I finally joined as a patron for $5 a month so I can have access to Kay's tutorials, their magazine, their Knitiversity, and their patreon  podcasts.  That's a lot for $5 a month!  Well worth it in my estimation.  There's even more if you pay more but I'm happy with this so far.  I'll keep you informed!
