I had a lot of trouble deciding on what I would do for this years birthday challenge. I originally thought I would do something along the lines of making and sending 29 cards, but then I saw Kellie’s post on unfinished projects from last year, and I knew this was the challenge I needed the most!
I have a lot of unfinished crafty projects. Don’t we all? Most of mine are projects where I had a fun idea that I wanted to try, went out and brought the supplies, and then never went any further than that. This is the year I work on getting more of these projects completed! I’m aiming for at least 12 being done. One a month seems like a reasonable number, especially when some of these are bigger projects. I know my list below has a lot more than 12 items on it, so I’ll be happier if I end up doing more, but I also don’t mind if some end up getting taken off the list for good. Sometimes binning projects when they are no longer inspiring is just what is needed!
I don’t have many photos to share of the starts of these projects since most of them are packed away still, and I’m sure as I unpack I will find even more projects that need to be added to the list, but so far just from memory, here are some of the items on my list:
- My knitted black and white blanket
- My knitted aqua and yellow blanket
- A knitted headband
- A card binder
- Dip dyed napkins
- A big canvas
- My collection of handmade traveler’s notebooks (I have quite a few I want to bind together to go in my fauxdori, only about half are done)
- 2 unfinished friendship bracelets
- A rainbow lorikeet long stitch
- A flower cross stitch
- My Thailand photo book
- A travel gallery wall
- Organising all my digital photos
- A blanket box
- Project Life 2013 and 2014
- Multiple Week in the Life albums
- Multiple December Daily albums
- My 2008 Bali album
- A New Zealand photo book
- A patchwork cushion
- An ampersand cushion
- String art stars
- A couple of smaller canvases
As I finish these projects, I’ll be sharing them here, along with on Instagram under the tag #j3ss1c4sunfinishedprojects. You can also follow me on Instagram here.
I’d love for you all to join in, and would love to hear what sorts of unfinished projects you may have!
