Had to laugh.

Thank you Kai for posting this today! I had to laugh.  I was going crazy the last few days before Christmas.  I didn't know how I was going to get everything done in time.  I had made a crazy promise with my friends that everything was going to be "handmade".  Ugh!

Turns out I got everything done in time.  It worked out because I saw some people before Christmas and some a few days after. 

Yesterday, I finished a project bag for a friend (it was on the list).  She wanted extra room, enough for to cakes of yarn.  When I was making it I thought it looked a little funny, but it really grew on me.  It's like a large clutch bag that you can hold under your arm if you want to. 

I'm going to try to finish a couple more bags today before meeting up with some knitting friends tonight. 

Wish me luck...

The Challenge

I bought a composition notebook the other day.  I have big plans to finish all the projects that I have started over the last couple of years.  This includes all quilting, sewing, knitting, and crochet projects.

After Christmas dinner I went through all my cabinets and project bags looking for anything that I started and had not finished.  I wrote them all down in my journal.  I gave each project a page.  This way I could make notes about each one.  For instance, things I need to finish it, needles used, yarn used, dates completed.  Even just writing that I gave up and frogged the project.  So far I have 25 pages with projects written on the top of each one.

Sparkly sock and Baby Pullover
Ugh! Dragged these out of the cabinet

One of seven quilts to finish
