A Year of Projects: Week 8.5

Last week was atypical, as in the kids had 1 normal day of school (Monday), 2 late start days, 1 early dismissal day, and no school Friday. Teacher conferences! Everything felt out of sorts and sitting down to type up anything seemed too “much”. But today, I added blog to my to-do list. And IContinue reading “A Year of Projects: Week 8.5”

A Year of Projects: Weeks 6/7

I’m not going to get down on myself for not updating recently. I’ve been creating furiously, however, I haven’t been compelled to SIT and write about it. In fact, I’ve been having a difficult time sitting still for any length of time to concentrate on “computer” stuff. It is what it is, but that doesn’tContinue reading “A Year of Projects: Weeks 6/7”

A Week Of Projects: Week 5

Last week was pretty slow in terms of crafting. I’ve been diligently working on my projects: Until We Win: Fight shawl, and my Wheat Stitch Crochet Wrap/Big Scarf (no new pictures). This past week I planted additional mums and attended an outdoor birthday party at a park for a friend. Until We Win: Fight. MyContinue reading “A Week Of Projects: Week 5”

A Year of Projects: Week4

Its Sunday again. Welcome. I don’t have any big finishes. Or starts. Or much of anything. Until We Win: Fight I’m on section 3 of 5 right now. Pictured is sections 1 and 2. Plugging along to make sure my numbers are right. They are. Updated the pattern file this morning to reflect some minorContinue reading “A Year of Projects: Week4”

A Year of Projects: Week 3

Last week. Phew! I made a little progress on sewing through my fabric stash. I finished a pair of socks. I am working on the first test round of my Until We Win: Fight Shawl. I wrote about my socks here and my sewing here, just in case you missed it. The socks are recentContinue reading “A Year of Projects: Week 3”

A Year of Projects: Week 2

I didn’t get to work on EVERYTHING I wanted to work on this week. But guess what, I’m a going to go with the flow! Let’s focus on what I DID accomplish. Not YOP, but still an accomplishment: Yesterday I moved around some “organization” stuff in my daughter’s room. I use the word organization loosely,Continue reading “A Year of Projects: Week 2”

Year of Projects: Week 50/51

OOf. It’s a good thing school is starting back up again soon, because I seem to have lost track of time and days recently. I am, at my heart a creature of habit and ROUTINE. Having lost so many of my routine activities (teaching knit/crochet, the gym, kids’ activities), I sometimes find myself adrift. AsContinue reading “Year of Projects: Week 50/51”
