so many projects!

It’s official! I’ve become someone who has anywhere between 5 and 10 projects going on at one time!! I’m not even sure how it happened! I was working on a Hat/Glove/Scarf Combo one minute and last night I found myself needing to get individual bags for the other 3 projects I had going on! This also explains my lack of posting or pictures. Apparently I’ve been starting things instead of finishing things! {tisk tisk}But last night was the last straw. I started a cross stitch for my mom, that I’m pretty excited about because I decided to change every thread color in the pattern. So last night I put my mental foot down! I will not start another project until I finish 1…or even 2 at this point! Luckily I’m pretty close to being finished with 1 project so I’m not totally bogged down.
On a more organized note, I had to do some major tidying last night. With all the knitting/crocheting supplies that I inherited came a huge mess. All the needles were in baggies and scattered here and there. Anything small was just floating around and I had a basket of old, rough yarn that filled my closet. Now, my house is currently on the market so keeping it clean is imperative in case someone wants to see it. With half of my knitting supplies buried in this basket in my closet and the other half in a box in our spare bedroom, finding anything I needed was quite the pain! Something had to be done. I bought some stack-able plastic containers went to work. At the end of the evening I had a large bag full of yarn to donate and all of my knitting supplies organized and in one place. Boy does it feel good. The basket went back into my closet but since I was able to make room for the stuff that used to be on top of it, I can actually get to it now. Even this morning when I woke up and glanced in my closet I immediately felt good about seeing just the basket in there. It’s amazing what a little organization can do for your soul! It’s as though I can breathe easier.
So, that’s all I have to report for now. As soon as I get something finished I’ll be sure to post about it! πŸ™‚ I’m excited to get back into cross-stitching too. It’s been a while and I had forgotten how much I enjoy it.

Have a Happy Monday!!! πŸ™‚

  1. yay organising! Oh and today one of Jessica's classes came into the costume shop to begin work on their Project Linus quilts and I saw some of the other quilts the girls around here have done. I was all like OMG must make one >_< crap. So I understand the project thing, since I'm really trying to finish my mer tail. But now I feel the need to go out and buy fat quarters and make this quilt....
