For this last day of TAD, I decided to bring together everything I’ve completed this month, and everything I haven’t. The happy news is that I completed 2 crocheted scarves, a needlepoint cell phone case, 2 heart-shaped pom-poms, a Valentine and envelope, a spool-knitted teddy bear, and 2 loom-woven potholders (not in the picture at left, as they have already been stashed away in the holiday box for December gift-giving). I re-acquainted myself with spool knitting and potholder loom weaving, learned to construct a felted toy from spool-knitted tubes, tried out the heart-shaped pom-pom maker, and completed 3 unfinished projects. For all those things, I give a big whoo-hoo!
I also worked on a significant number of projects I didn’t yet complete (in the picture at right): spool-knitted fairy doll, needlepoint messenger bag flap, crocheted chatelaine, cross-stitch plaque, granny square toddler sweater, spool-knitted scarf, crocheted socks, needlepoint snowflake, and loom-woven potholder. ‘Twould have been lovely, of course, to actually complete all those things. But regardless, they were all moved along in the creative process, and 6 of those projects were begun during this month of TAD.
So despite the fact that I now have more unfinished projects than when the month began (funny how that happens), I’m pleased with my accomplishments.
Oh yes, and something else I did this month was to open an Etsy shop! And I’ve already had my first sale.
Thank you TADsters, for all your crafting love and moral support. See you next year!
