Projects, Projects and More Projects

~Betsy Wallace

Everyone was working so hard on holiday gifts and decorations over the past few months, it’s been fun to see new projects spring up over the past few weeks! After talking about our creative resolutions, we’ve decided to start a knit-a-long (maybe a dish or wash cloth?) at the collective for those of us who want to start and FINISH a knitting project this year. Did you see Rachel’s awesome sweater? She’s volunteered to help the newbies and keep the troops motivated.

Danielle’s big crafty resolution included some embroidery work and she took this great picture of her sketches, back lit by the Atlanta sky line view from her home!

New member, Lara, is working on felting projects like the necklace pictured here.  We’re excited to learn more about this technique and try a few felting projects in the new year, too.  She is also interested in making a Waldorf doll and shared this beautiful tutorial.

I made (cobbled together?) this rag rug loom out of two by four scraps and screws, watched this eight minute tutorial on YouTube and am working on a set place mats and a housewarming gift for my sister!

We’ll keep checking in on the projects and post pictures along the way.  Thanks for stopping by!
