Ok, at the beginning of the year (or last week) I said that one of my goals this year was to complete at least one project every month. I think I qualified that by also saying that it didn't need to be a big project just that I *complete* something.
I have so many unfinished projects and so many things I want to start or lots of things that I could do. The first things that jump into my mind are the many jewelry projects that I *could* make. Remember the pile of jewelry making supplies that I showed you a couple months ago? Well, let's just say that Mt. Bling hasn't gotten any smaller. There are LOTS of things in that pile that I could make.
There are also the unfinished quilting projects... My upstairs bathroom is decorated with outhouses. A couple years ago MA and I made outhouse wallhangings. They are quite pretty and very unique. Needlesstosay mine is not finished - it's in a bag waiting it's turn. And the wall in the bathroom is naked, holding its spot for the outhouse quilt. I also started a wallhanging of a black lab for C for his birthday a couple years ago. It is very nice too and would fit well into the decor in our family room. It, too, is waiting to be quilted. Finally, in the pile of "started but not finished" projects you'll fine my mystery quilt. MA and I worked on that about a month ago. I found out I more of an artsy quilter and not very precision oriented (I knew that - but the quilt confirmed it for sure). My quilt quickly became the "stitchingly challenged" quilt - I call it something else but it's not very pollitically correct. I am still working to salvage that quilt and I will, it's just gonna take
some a huge amount of time and patience (I don't have much of those). Oh, and I almost forgot I have a Halloween wall hanging I started 2 years ago to finish - like the others, it needs quilted - but I have 10 months until Halloween rolls around again.
It was cold over this past weekend, so Sunday I stayed in all day. I went into my craft room (I love it that my house is big enough that I actually have a *room* dedicated to all my craft stuff and that it's not strung throughout the house all the time). When we moved into this house C bought a REALLY NICE craft table for me - it has a large working surface, it's high so it's nice to stand and work at or easy to walk around AND it has cubby holes on either side for storage. But I digress...
