Featured Pattern: A Little Haunted, $8 on Craftsy

12 For 2012

12 For 2012

My UFO pile gets larger every year and I’ve decided that 2012 is the Year to Finish. I was thinking about this and trying to decide how to go about such a monumental task when my friend Kristel at WIP Girl mentioned that she wants to finish 12 projects in 12.

That lit a fire for me and I can’t thank her enough for the fantastic idea!!

The idea is this:

Choose 12 UFO projects to complete in 2012, earmarking one for each month. Number your projects so you can keep track: January will be 1/12, February 2/12, etc. My plan is to work on big projects and small projects on alternating months so I don’t get overwhelmed by how much I have to finish.

The goal is to have 12 completed projects by the end of 2012. When you finish a project, post about it anywhere else you like to share your crafty goodness, your blog, facebook, YouTube, etc.

If you don’t have 12 UFOs, then earmark any extra months for projects you’ve been wanting to start, keeping in mind that the idea is to have a finished project at the end of each month.

When you have of list of projects you are planning to tackle each month, share with your readers! I’ll be posting mine here on Sewhooked and sharing on my weekly vlog, Talk To Me Tuesday.

Feel free to use the graphics in this post and spread the word! Let’s make 2012 a year of finishing stuff!

I’m working on adding HTML for the graphics. WordPress.com does not support text area and just sharing the html creates errors in the code. In the meantime, you can share the graphics with direct links. I’m sorry for the extra step!

Name That Quilt!

The Project That Needs A Name

I love coming up with creative titles for my projects, but even my name bank runs out from time to time. The above quilt is 12 1/2″ x 15 1/2″ and is entirely paper pieced. It’s the latest design in my wall hanging series for the Sewhooked shop. The pattern itself tested, edited and ready to go. As soon as I have a name, it will be ready to sell!

This is where you come in! For the next week, add your title idea in comments. I’ll put up a poll including all the suggestions* and the one with the most votes is what I’ll use for the new pattern! The person that suggests the winning name will receive the very first hardcopy version of this pattern and a Sewhooked button!

*I reserve the right to not include names that are 1)inappropriate 2)obviously copyrighted by someone else. Please ask me first if you’re not sure! You’re always welcome to email me with questions.

ETA: The poll will go up on Friday, September 24!
