Maybe I’ll be better at adding some small, quick wins this year. The second half of last year was full of large projects that slowed my number of finishes and really bummed me out.

What I’d like to make/finish:

  • crochet tunic for my sister
  • mug rug for my sister
  • Monopoly quilt for my dad
  • Squatter quilt for my mum
  • family tree cross stitch
  • temperature blanket (first one! yarn ready to go!)
  • crochet viking helm for husband
  • dinosaur blanket (late Christmas)
  • bug quilt (late Christmas)

Completed items:


  1. V-shape shawl

I’m in again for 2023

Main Goal: Actually finish some WIPs. (This was also last year’s goal but it wasn’t very successful :joy:)

1: so the quilt itself is not finished but the basics of the top is, unless I add a border (likely!) I’m counting it as a half. #notawip (here we go again! :joy: in mydefence, it was because of a wip that this got started, trying to be efficient in the pressing of blocks)

^^^ Must make some effort to finish it!! DONE :smiley:

2: I started and Finished a mug rug for the swap. Can’t post yet, but will once received (#Notawip)

3: Made a fake ‘Buff’ - now need to make more for Fam!! (#Notawip) but is a destash, completed 3 in total!

4: Inchie dice (#Notawip) No pictures yet, swap item.

  1. Crochet Crazy Eights shawl (#Notawip)

  2. 2nd lot of inchies, 1st didn’t arrive :frowning: (#Notawip)


What is a squatter quilt? Sounds intriguing!

I have been crafting like crazy all through last year. I hope to continue to be productive, I just need to get active on here again. No list for me as I have way too many things I’m doing, lol. I’ll add as I complete something!


Squatter is an Australian board game that is a Monopoly-type game where you own sheep stations and have to buy and trade your animals.

My dad grew up playing Monopoly, my mum grew up playing Squatter.


Claiming my spot! I’m hoping I can get to 50 this year, but 2023 hasn’t gotten off to the most auspicious start. Apologies in advance to anyone who finds dolls to be creepy. Avert your eyes!

  1. 2022 Book Journal Wrap-Up

  2. Minifee unisex sweater

  3. January PKF Dresses

  4. January Dresses - other sizes


That is definitely not me! I am just amazed at the variety of little dresses you make…I had no idea there were so many tiny prints, and now I am obsessed with them. To prevent me from buying them without any purpose, I always looked forward to seeing your fabrics! lol

I think I’ll play this year. I don’t know if I’ll make 50 (too many big projects on my to-do/WIP list), but I do love seeing everyone’s tallies go up throughout the year.

I print my list, pictures and all, each year and have them filed in a notebook as well as in a digital file.

It is fun to look back and remember what I made and for whom, etc. Sometimes, it is odd because I have no memory of HOW I made something, which means, I was probably in my zone…


Welcome to LC! We have a “Use the good stuff” craftalong as well…a reminder that life can take us down roads that we did not plan, so it is best to live mindfully and enjoy our crafting and friendships each day!

What are we saving these things for, if not for ourselves or our loved ones?

Can’t wait to see what you make! I think many of us are looking at making more clothing for ourselves!


It’s the best place on the whole entire internet, seriously. Some of us have been crafing together for 15+years! New friends are always welcome with open arms and the encouragement & support is just lovely. There’s no BS, selling, snark (unless it’s a snarky project, lol), just friendship & sharing.

Keeping a record like this is so motivational! Check out @AIMR 's list from last year for example. Just seeing it all lined up like that is an amazing reminder of all you’ve accomplished. Often it’s way more than you thought!


I interrupt this normally scheduled programing to announce…it’s time to VOTE for our current challenges!!

It really is nice for looking back over your projects. You can set it up however you like, change it over time, etc. We all have our own style. For me, I like to make a topic in the relevant section first, such as a crocheted toy, for example. Then I add that project to my list here along with a link to the topic and a thumbnail image. If it was something I didn’t make a topic for I still add it with a thumbnail but no link. It can get a bit unweildy by the end of the year but I still like it for looking back.
Here’s my list from last year.
