In 2019 I am using 5 methods to decide what to work on through the year. I am taking part in Judy’s UFO Challenge, I am doing my own Knit Challenge, a Sewing Challenge, 24 Hats and Cowls in 2019, and Jet Girl’s Planning Party. Part of my Planning Party goal was to work through a list of 12 newbie projects I plan to start in 2019, the Sewing Challenge. Maybe these items would work each month for my OMG?
For January I choose The Snow Dudes so I can have it on my table for as much of the winter season as possible. I change out Christmas decor to snowmen until Feb 1st, when Valentine’s Day decor comes out. Maybe I should switch out to Spring items to encourage the warm air to return?
I am changing up the background and using a mottled blue to create a deep sky. I am not settled on a border fabric yet, I would like to use a plaid or a check, just need to dig in the stash to see what I have. I plan to keep the red inner border if it works with whatever outer border fabric I find.
So, what’s on your OMG this month? Big, small or in-between?
And for my UFO Challenge, the number drawn was 7, so that means October is going to be the project I work on this month. I would like to get this top done, quilted, and bound! Since it’s a mini size, it’s totally doable!
For my 2019 Knitting Challenge I am using the same number as the UFO Challenge, so #7 is…Finish Cable Shawl as a poncho. That seems totally doable, but since I am currently working on Fallen Cloud, I am switching out numbers. Who says I can’t cheat, it’s my Challenge!
