50 or more Projects Craftalong -2023

embossed brocade…sounds so lovely…

I have several pieces of “good” fabric that I was gifted when I was in Japan…never really had the nerve to cut into them…2023 is now or never…one is silk denim with tiny real rhinestones


Ok I’m in. It’s been a while since I felt motivated to track my crafts for the year, but I kind of miss being able to look back at what I accomplished for a given year. I don’t have a goal number to complete.

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.

Seeing your list makes me want to dive head first into all my batik scraps!!!


Seeing others’ lists is really a window into the broad world of making and makers. Some crafters are mostly committed to the one medium in its various methods (yarn, for instance), some really like a particular form but with a big variety of media (assemblage, say), some are expert in a couple-few things, and some dabble in all manner of media and forms. It’s wondrous to see the ways a creative mind can work differently than your own!


I did not keep track of my projects in 2022 and I would like to change that this year. It’s so nice to be able to look back and see all the things I’ve done. Thank you @AIMR for setting up this craftalong!

The year is off to a good start - I finally finished up my first knit sweater, and I whipped up a couple rosaries from stash. I have so many big projects to do this year that I’m sure I’ll go mad if I don’t pepper in some short and satisfying projects along the way.


Those rosaries are lovely!

Thank you! I didn’t have enough eye pins for full five decade rosaries, but then I remembered that singles were a thing, and I had supplies for those!



I am going to try this, and see if it helps me get my projects done, and helps me use my stash. I am trying to avoid swaps & focus on clearing these things out of my brain! This year is all about getting these nebulous ideas all the way to reality! Many things on this list will not make sense, it is from a game or a book. There is no way I will do all these but it helps to see it all listed out in one place as I have ~10 different lists of projects to combine here. :slight_smile:
