I’m kind of tempted to try doing a drawing/painting every day for the month. I’m pretty terrible at doing daily things like keeping a journal etc. - too easily distracted - but this thread could be good encouragement … hmmmm…
I made every day in Jan, EXCEPT ONE. Boo!
So yes, I’m on for this. But I’ve no list. I’m keeping track in a tiny little calendar. And I’m already considering how to visualize it. I was not surprised by which topics showed up repeatedly, as knitting a wearable takes considerably longer than a stamp carving project (days vs hours). With Feb. coming, I’m also considering monitoring time? But just as a general time value, because that would be fun to visualize (trended graph), but don’t want to make it so onerous I stop making.
I like this idea and will do my best but … we are visiting our 2 grand daughters for a week in February … so I’ll do my best
When at home I plan to work on quilting projects and while away I’ll crochet on my shawl.
I think life has finally lined up that I could actually make something everyday in Feb! Count me in!
I‘m currently planing some larger projects so I need to break them down into daily chunks.
- fabric stash decluttering
- kids chairs
- completed flooring for new office
- (long hours at work left no room for crafting )
- fabric stash organization
- fabric stash organization
- cut desk top for new office
- stained and finished desk top
- assembled first part of desk
Tentatively claiming a spot here in hopes it will obligate me to follow through. I’ll probably focus on just working on something each day rather than having set finishing goals.

I like how you think! Ok, I’m draping my knitting bag over this chair right here…
- wanders off to make tea *
February is 29 days so if you could do 30, then you got this!
@JoyfulClover I am keeping track with the everyday app. It’s a free habit tracker where you can set reminders. You click in to mark something as done. It is a nice little app, plain and simple.
@WileESongDog - yes Leap Year Feb is doable! And the one day I missed, I had been going all.day. And I sat there and thought…I could knit just one line. Or I could go to bed.
And < BOOM > bed it was.
@Edel I will check this out! I like easy-peasy!
This looks like a fun challenge and will definitely help with the stash.
… or so I tell myself …
- I made a mess! Spent time sorting through clothes to donate/keep, and also fabric stash.
- DD came over and tried teaching me to use her cricut.
- haluski (cabbage and noodles) with sausage/kielbasa
I am so tempted by this … I’ll have to look at my want-to-do list tonight and figure out the feasibility, since I’m pretty sure my brain would interpret “make something” as “finish something” so I need to see if I can get enough smaller projects lined up to have a shot at doing that 29 days in a row.
I think this is a good time and place to start a multi-piece project I’ve had in mind. I won’t post daily, because I am relying on the scanner at my office for the imaging, but I will do a little something daily and share several days at a time.
I’ve already got a list in the 50 project thread, so I’m not going to make one here, but I cannot wait for February to start! My fingers are itching to know the stitchalong theme!
I think I’m in on this one. I have to put some thought into my project though.
I like this. I have a crocheted shawl that I need to get finished. So this might help me get it worked on more.
Hmmm… But did you make anything at all that day? Like even a sandwich? Did you do your hair in any creative way? Wait! Did you make your bed?? I know it isn’t the same thing, but… maybe? (I do love finding loopholes… haha!)
I do enjoy your creative definition of…well, creativity! (and I ALWAYS make my bed)
I’m using that one day as a mental rock in my shoe. Because it’s really bugging me. So hopefully the next time I will make sure to fit in at least SOMETHING.
Ohhh, that’s clever. Smart thinking!
I need this thread to keep me on track to get my boro purse done for the Functional Stitchalong!
I am going to do a patch a day or something to decorate my purse.
I am going to use today and tomorrow to make sure I have all the embroidery threads and supplies I need…can’t wait to get this project done…it has been on my list for a long time.

I did it! Not quite the way I intended, but at least I crafted or cooked everyday in February…and boy, am I ready for a more relaxed pace! Whew! ha
