50 or more Projects Craftalong -2023

For some reason I didn’t post as many things as I made last year. :grimacing:
I went over my goal but gave most of the items away or sold them and forgot to take pictures beforehand. (if I counted correctly then my total was 78 items)
This year I’ll try to post more.
My goal is to buy only thread if I need it.
My stash is getting overwhelmingly big :sweat:

No list this year I’ll just add when I finish something
