How to people who make ATCs count them? I make a LOT of ATCs in a year. maybe by month? I doubt I will post pics of them all. That would be too much.

Still feeling the place out, but I think this thread is one of the best places I can start getting back into the groove. My parents moved to IN from FL back in July 2019 and lived with DH and myself until mid-September before construction was complete on the house they bought, totally derailed the little bit of crafty mojo I was building back up from a several year hiatus…blargh…

I’m back and I’m bad…but in a good way!

Here’s a little bitty list to start, more to come as I think of it, and hopefully items will be crossed off sooner rather than later.

  1. Crystal Light Wallet (like a tea wallet, but with slots for those single-serve drink packet thingies…I get tired of plain ol’ water when I’m running errands all day)
  2. Apron top for me
  3. Lounge pants for me
  4. Lounge pants for DH
  5. Button or Teesha Moore stocking for me
  6. Button or Teesha Moore stocking for DH
  7. Finish 8x10" cross stitch I started in 2019 and mat/frame it
  8. Sunflower quilt (this is an ambitious one as I don’t know how to quilt yet!)
