It's the first post of the new year and I'm going to share my crafting intentions for 2020! But first,


And before I get into my plans for this year, here is a recap of my 2019 resolutions and how well I followed them: My three goals for the year were to finish the denim quilt, learn a new craft, and gardening. I barely made any progress on the quilt; maybe a third of the pieces are now cut into squares. The new craft was pottery; I did great on this resolution and took two classes this year! My gardening was kind of a bust after my greenhouse was destroyed during a storm and the seeds I started didn't sprout. So last year was kinda bad for resolutions, but I'm giving myself two thumbs up for the pottery!


My 2020 Crafty Intentions are:

Learn a New Knitting Technique
I want to learn a new knitting technique this year and I think it will probably be brioche. My knitting queue has started to grow over the last month or two and I think at least one of the planned projects could be knit in that style. This will likely be complete sometime in the last half of the year, first I have to finish a WIP and another project I've already bought the yarn for.

Practice Watercolor Painting
After painting the forest scene that looked more like an underwater scene I decided I need more practice with watercolors so I'm going to paint more. I'm still trying to figure out what more is, but I'm thinking of painting the same scene over and over again, maybe once a month, until I think I'm ready to move on.

Finish the Quilt
It turns out quilting has joined scrapbooking on the list of crafts I think would be great, but I don't actually enjoy. Anyway, I definitely need to get this one done; I have all the supplies and the old jeans are taking up way too much space in my craft room. A finished blanket will be really nice and I just need to finish it already! Let's hope the third year's the charm!
