Last year I attempted to do a stitch a day and I barely made it to February before pretending I never started. So this year I wanted to try another year long project, but I was trying to come up with something that wasn’t so easy to get behind on. Once I miss one (or five) days, I just immediately want to throw in the towel.
I had been toying with the idea of doing something with learning new skills but I wasn’t sure about the logistics. Every week seemed like it was going to be too difficult to sustain. Thankfully, Stephanie from Swoonson Says is putting together a year long project called Try Something New Every Month. There are a bunch of different bloggers that will be taking part, all of them trying a variety of different things. The first Monday of every month Stephanie will post a round up of all the TSNEM posts.
Now, I have quite a list of things I’m hoping to try, but I might make some changes along the way. I’m not committing to doing anything a particular month, I’m going to just see how I feel. But here are some potential things I’ll be trying in 2015:
Foundation paper piecing
Free motion quilting
Any other ideas for things I could add to my list?
Try glass fusing! John and I did earlier this year and we had a blast!
Oooh, I’ll look into it! Thanks!

On my list this year is printing. I want to try to make my own blocks. And I always think I’m going to try my hand with resin.
Josh got me a screen printing kit for Christmas and I’m very excited to try it out. And resin is a good one, there’s a resin bracelet tutorial I wanted to try out.
I can’t think of anything else, but I’m certainly looking forward to reading about you trying them! Have fun 🙂
Thanks! I’m excited because a lot of these have been on my to do list for ages and now I’ve got a good motivation to do them!

Ooo, this is a wonderful idea. I’ve tried so much; I wonder if I can think of 12 different things that wouldn’t cost a fortune to start up.
Hey wonderful idea!! I wonder if I should do a 365 project. I was successful in previous years. Hmmmm
I love following along with other people’s 365 projects and seeing what they make, they’re just too hard for me to do! I am very easily distracted and I think it takes a level of dedication I don’t have!

Yes, I love this idea 🙂

This is a neat idea!
