30 for 30 Crafting Challenge Done!

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?

      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.

    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.
