10 on the 10th....................things to finish by end of 2012.

For this months 10 on the tenth, I thought would be brave and like Melsh set myself some goals (hers are for her boy who turns the big 13). So in no particular order I have decided to..............

1. Finish Learn Something New Everyday 2012 cos I am bad at completing my books by the end of the year.

2. Complete my crocheted cushion courtesy of Attic 24. I have chosen to make my flower cushion in pink and pale blue and will post some progress photos as I go.

3. Learn how to machine embroider/applique. I have a book  by Poppy Treffrey which teaches you how to do it

 and met a lovely lady in town who is going to be some local classes too who goes by the name of teddy long legs. I have a basic sewing machine which does many things beautifully, however my mum is giving me back her spare posher machine for me to do some slightly more fabulous things. So watch this space.

4. Make this beast for my boyfriend for Christmas (he is 3 1/2 by the way!).

5. Read as many of the 100 books goal I set myself on Goodreads at the beginning of the year. At the moment I am about 34 behind, oh well. This is the list I have read so far

6. Finish my travel themed album for my two trips to the USA. The photos are from almost 20 years ago and were needing some TLC and journaling all in one place. I've almost completed the East coast trip and now need to do San Francisco and New Mexico. More on that another time.

7. Make this for my mum.................


8. Complete ''One little word'' for 2012 the class I have taken again over this year with Ali Edwards and Big Picture Scrapbooking.

9. Stay positive and well.

10. Go to the gym twice a week minimum to try and get fitter, lose some weight and improve my mood.

Do you have any goals you want to set yourself? Do share.


  1. Thank you for letting me know its the 10th, I'd got it into my head that today was the 9th, doh! What a great idea to do a list of things to get finished/done by the end of the year. Number 1 on my lost would have to be get a new garden fence put up, not particularly exciting but ours wont stand any more harsh winds.

  2. A really good list!

    3 1/2 is a very cute age..

  3. This list scares me a little, as I realize how the year will be done before we know it. NOt sure I have specific things still to do (will have to ponder that).

  4. This is a great list Jo! I can't wait to see your adventures in appliqué and that tea cosy! The knitted toy made me laugh! xx

  5. Good for you, Jo - great to see your challenges :) The Boy completed his 2nd challenge yesterday (not that he's finished the 1st one yet, as that was a longer one designed to happen over a few weeks!)

  6. Great list and do hope you are successful.
