I'm been running around trying to finish up all the projects I have going on. Both ones from my home improvement list and my craft list. And I have to say I'm starting to plow through it. LIKE A BOSS!
And OMG. It feels wonderful!! It's like this burden has been lifted off my shoulders and I am almost, almost free to start any of the new projects I want to start.
But, no. Not now, brain. Not now. You still have a few things left to accomplish before you add on to your ridiculous list.
Let me show you a few things I am so stupidly proud of. Not because they are beyond amazing, but because they are done and I am so, so tickled that they are. FINALLY!!
I finally finished off the edges of a few on my woven rag rugs. I chose to serge them to make the edges look cleaner. The blue and green rug I gave to my step-mom this weekend. She will be testing the durability of it for me.
I'm just a bit weary about how durable the serged edges will be. If I plan on selling them down the road I want to make sure they will last. I hope it works out because I do like how crisp and almost modern it makes the edges look.
Here we have the Fun Fur Scarf. I finished knitting this last week. It is straight knit, through and through. Forgive me for not knowing what that stitch is called. I only dabble in knitting.
Lucy is modeling it for me again. She is wearing a draped shirt idea with it. Isn't she stylish? And her hair is always perfect!
If the blue fun fur looks familiar, you would be right. I snipped off a few pieces from my skein to make my daughter's "Thing 1" headband.
Then we have one of those pesky little bags I beaded. I did the stitching to close the tunnel for the drawstring and finished it off by using a random piece of cording as the drawstring. I didn't put two drawstrings in like it should have because the cording was thick and not cooperating. No matter, I think my little girl will like it anyways.
All kids love things to put in other things.Total truth.
And the grand finale is my beaded cross stitch I swear I started ten years ago.
Yes, Don't mock me. I didn't work on it for like... 8 years. It was so hard to get a good photo of this because the colors are pretty pale and pastel.
Does anyone know how to get my hoop indent out? I already tried pressing and steaming it.
Who knows what is next on my wicked list of unfinished projects. I may be finishing up some crocheted barrettes or mend a baby granny square blanket (since I finally re-discovered the pattern I used).
Look at the cute baby playing peekaboo on top of it.
Look at the pretty yarn and I better draw out that dress idea while I can remember. And did I bring up my hook for the circle fun granny squares I've decided to work on instead of this baby blanket?
Oh! Wait, what was I saying? As you can see, I don't really have craft A.D.D.
