January – Summary

So as it is the last day in January I thought I would update on my progress of my Goals for the month.   It has been a very busy weekend – and not helped this evening by the fact I seem to have injured my back.

Unfortunately I haven’t quite made all of my challenges.

  • 2016 PL layouts – I set out to complete these within 2 weeks of the event.  There has only really been 1 event worth documenting this year – which I have done (even if it was just outside me 2 week target)
  • 2015 PL layouts – I set out to catch up with 4 of my backlog of layouts and unfortunately time appears to have evaded me here and I have only managed 3.  I think had I managed time a bit differently I could have managed all 4 – so I am going to leave this as the challenge for February.
  • 1 Baking Project – I did manage this one – a little last minute but I managed it.
  • 1 Knitting / Crotchet Project – I managed to complete one project quite early in the month and got 1/2 through a second.  I plan to leave this as 1 as I think this is achievable.
  • 2 General Cards – I completed these 2 for both Mothers.  It is a very good mates Birthday early in February but as he lives in America and things have been a bit manic recently I haven’t managed to make his card.  We do obviously have valentines day this month therefore that will be 1 of my 2; and then I may do a “generic” card as my second maybe for one of the Challenge blogs.
  • 2 / 2 Christmas Cards – I completed 2 Christmas cards this month although I failed to use the Christmas 52 blog for this month – so I am hoping to use that for at least 1 of the cards this month.
  • 32/31 MosaiCraft Squares – I have managed to do this everyday (although still need to do this evenings) along with 2 bonus squares where I have had a small amount to finish a baseplate.

So I am going to leave the challenges the same for February…lets see how it goes!


January Week 2 – Lego

This was my first week back at work since Christmas and also unfortunately I have been poorly 😦 so I haven’t managed to do as much as I would like to have done this week as I have just got home from work and crashed on the sofa. However, I thought I would post about something a bit different and not necessarily crafty but something that I have managed to complete this week.

So with some of the money / vouchers I got given for Christmas  I treated myself to Lego Doctor Who.  I could have sat down in one go to be honest to build it … but I decided that I would do it in stages to prolong the enjoyment.  I was even nice and let my husband build one of the Darlek’s.  I would love to get Lego Wall-E but I haven’t done that yet…maybe later in the year.

Lego Tardis

So how am I getting on with my other January Crafting goals:

  • 2016 PL Layouts (0/1 so far)
  • 2015 PL Layouts (1/4 so far)
  • 0/1 Baking Project
  • 0.75/1 Knitting / Crotchet Project
  • 2 /2 General Card (second one will be shared over the weekend)
  • 0/2 Christmas Cards
  • 14/31 MosaiCraft Squares Complete.
