Firstly Hello to my new followers, so pleased to have you on board and secondly don't forget the giveaway I'm running, still plenty of time to enter.
I'm going to set my self a few challenges of crafty things I'd like to achieve this coming year. I won't call them resolutions as they are not changes as such. They fall into 3 catagories:
- Stash Reduction
- Learning new techniques/skills
- The Biscornu challenge

I'm trying to set up a monthly crafternoon too at my local church. This is a project which I'm quite passionate about as my town lacks craft groups that are inexpensive. the last one I went to cost £3.50 a session and was poorly attended. I think the price put people off. It was aimed soley at stitchers and I want a group where all crafts are welcome and people enjoy themselves, share tips and get the support and encouragement from fellow crafters I feel when I blog. I think it's to chase this up a little via email.
Lastly I read a blog last year about a basket of biscornu challenge . I'd love to create my own basket where each month you make a biscornu for the basket and at the end of the year you have 12 biscornu for yourself. Now last year I made 29 biscornu and gave away all but 5 so I'd love to have a few more of the ones I've made. I've got 6 of the patterns sorted already! I'll still be making them for presents and I've 2 in mind for the next couple of months for mum and a swap.
Thank you for reading and I look forward to sharing more soon.
