On the first day of 2019 I have started a couple of projects so that I can work on it in a daily basis. One is a Ripple blanket and the other is a cross stitch cushion cover with a simple pattern that doesn't need a chart. Have a look at them.
I am following the Neat Ripple pattern of Lucy from Attic24. It is a know pattern in the crochet world. I am Using 4 ply acrylic yarn and a 4mm hook. I am doing one row per day. It took me 15 to 20 mins to complete one row. So far I have completed one row each day till yesterday.
The next is a cushion cover with a simple pattern in cross stitch. I am doing 2 blocks per day. Somedays i will be stitching more than 2 . Maximum 4. Not more than that. Using 2 strands of different anchor embroidery cotton.
I will be finishing this into a 16 inch cushion cover.
This year I have decided to take concentrate on one project at a time apart from these two. B'coz having more projects in the work basket is sometimes stressful. I have planned to finish a project, then shoot photos , update in the blog and then move on to the next one. I have some crochet projects which I have completed last year in which I haven't blogged till now. Some of them need some finishing touch. I will be doing them one by one before moving on to a new start. Mainly I am focussing on my UFO's in my work basket and the stash I have collected in the last few years. This year I have also decided not to go for shopping craft items unless and until necessary.
I will be updating the progress of these projects every month. In my next post I will be showing the crochet projects which I have missed to show here. That's all for now.
Have a happy time with needle n thread.
