I made it through the 30 for 30 crafting challenge and I’m pretty proud of what I’ve accomplished!
I finished the French knot color wheel. This became my main focus for awhile and I’m really excited to have finished it during the 30 days.
I didn’t work on Evie’s blanket at all but I’m almost done with Mira’s.
This is the hardest to see a lot of progress on, but I’ve done 4 rows around. I have 4 more rows and then a border and I’m finished.
I still have a few more designs to stitch up and a lot of hexagons to make, but it made good progress on the Wild Olive spring stitching club. I stitched up a few of the patterns and I joined a bunch of them. I’m excited to finish this, it’s so adorable.
I’ve also joined a lot of hexagons for my quilt. I started out with a small patch of pink joined and I’ve gotten quote a few together. I love seeing the joined pieces and seeing how the fabric patterns are looking together. I’m excited to get to the point where I’m actually joining different colors together.
I also put in some work on the doodle stitch along piece, but none since I last showed it off.
Even though the challenge is technically over, I’m going to continue setting aside at least 30 minutes a day to work on one of these projects. I think I’m going to try to just power through with Mira’s blanket and get it done. I have another crochet project in mind but don’t want to start it until I finish one. Have you been joining in on the 30 for 30 crafting challenge? What did you work on this past month?

Congrats on finishing! Love the little guys from the spring stitching club! So cute!!
Thanks! I was amazed at how much I got done in just 30 minutes a day. And yes, Mollie’s stitching patterns are always SO CUTE!
I’ve been flitting between projects so have nothing concrete to show except my FFFoF swap piece when Sister Twisty receives is. I did a load more on my calendar but mostly just to make it symmetrical – I think it will take me all year to finish so I should just hem it and hang it up. I started on the Frosted Pumpkin “Halloween Town” cross stitch too, I need to spend all my 30 minutes catching up before the next clue is released.
I know a lot of people doing Halloween Town! It looks so fun! But I know I don’t have the time for another big project like that.
Omg. Your embroidered hexies may be the cutest thing I have ever seen. I can’t wait to see that come together! I did one little hex block for a sampler quilt I’m slowly working on. Very labor intensive, but totally worth it.
Yes, Mollie from Wild Olive has such adorable designs! The embroidered hexagons are so fun!

HOLY CRAP that french knots color wheel turned out AMAAAZING. I can only imagine how much time it took, and how sore your poor fingers must have gotten after yanking the needle through the fabric/other knots in the back so many times 🙂 (at least that’s what happens to me when I go on a french knotting spree!) – sarah h.

Yes, especially having so many French knots close together, it required extra force to get the needle through. I did this for my 30 minutes a day crafting challenge. Some days I powered through and worked longer, but a lot of days I only could do the 30 minutes.
