As part of my goal to embrace life in 2015, I'm aiming to embrace one of my passions....rug hooking. So to ensure that I do, I'm pledging to hook 15 projects in 2015. I'm also hoping to incorporate #15in2015 in other aspects of my life as well, stay tuned for announcements of other #15in2015 projects!

I hope you'll follow along and watch my progress. Any chance you want to join in? 

Just think, your project could be one of these:
  • knitting 15 pairs of mittens or 15 hats
  • try out 15 new recipes that you've always wanted to try
  • learning 15 new words in a language you're trying to master (okay, this one isn't too difficult, maybe you could up it to 150?)
  • reach out to 15 old friends and re-kindle a friendship that's been lost
  • read 15 biographies about incredible people that have indirectly or directly influenced your life
  • quilt 15 preemie quilts for Project Linus
  • write 15 poems 
  • what does your #15in2015 look like? 

And in case you're thinking, that's not really too challenging. Consider the fact that I work full-time, have an eight-year-old with a busy activity schedule and am also studying for my Masters degree right now. So, all in all, I get about zero hooking time per day. :) 


  1. Love the new banner rug - it's gorgeous. Embrace is one of my "gang" of 6 or more supporting words for this year. I love my little eze mat and it happily is part of my new Lunenburg desk top. Ease is still and always will be something I'm aiming to apply to the way I deal with people, situations ... and life. So please know that your sweet gift is appreciated & well loved. Happy New Year !! xoxo Susan, Boss Cat & Virgil

  2. ps. curious about your Masters Degree would love to know what it's in ? good for you working full-time, being a parent "and" doing a Masters. WOW !!

  3. Hi Susan,
    Thanks for stopping by! I think "ease" is something we all can include in our lives, given the perplexity of the times we live in.
    The Masters is in Leadership, mostly done online with two intensive residential courses mixed in. Really enjoying it!

  4. I love this idea. I'm working hard to get 15 projects done. But mine will be assorted 'fiber' related projects. I'm hoping that at least 3 will be rugs. But new mittens for the kids (because their hands grew larger than my old patterns), some scarves for loved ones. I think 15 projects is challenging but doable!

  5. Janice, I'm glad you're going to join me for #15in2015. I may well change my goal to 15 fibre projects as well. I'm already feeling overwhelmed - eek!
