2023 Make Nine recap

It's a wrap! Make Nine 2023 finished up in early November with the last UFO prompt fulfilled.

Make Nine 2023 completed tracker.

Make Nine 2023 Finishes

In order of completion, these are my Make Nine finishes for 2023:

  • New to Me in ’23 came the first month of the year with the January Junk Journal Challenge. (January)
  • Stash Buster was a yarn stash buster this year. The Inclinations Shawl was completed inFebruary and now that the weather is cold again, it gets much use. (February)
  • Make it Again was a long sleeve Bristol top with Art Gallery knits. (March)
  • Wild Card 1 was another Bristol Top with long sleeves in green knit fabrics for St. Patrick’s Day. (March)
  • Mend/Repurpose a new binding was put on a well-used, well-loved, vintage quilt. Now it’s a time-span quilt and a collaboration with Anonymous. (May)
  • Online Challenge was a new prompt for 2023. I participated in the World Watercolor Challenge. (July)
  • Wild Card 2 was for the kitties at the Cat Clinic. They received 12 new scrappy kitty quilts this summer. (July)
  • Fast and Fun were three cuddle quilts for my guild’s community service project. (August)
  • UFO was a productive prompt. I had fabrics set aside for a pair of pants and a jacket. The pattern pieces for the Valencia pants had been cut out for a while. I completed both in time for a business conference and have worn both pieces a lot since. It was a beneficial investment of time to get these pieces finished. (November)

This past year, the Make Nine challenge has been beneficial to my skill development, my art practice, my wardrobe, and to the charities I am happy to support.

I’m planning to participate in Make Nine again in the new year. Who’s with me?
