I’ve been a bit whim-ridden lately. I keep starting things and not finishing them…it’s a problem.
Things I’ve started and haven’t finished:
-Brown Cardigan #1 (Augusta). Have finished back and two sleeves. No fronts. Fronts seem important. Boobies will get cold. (couldn’t help myself with that one…it was just right out there…in front)
-Brown Cardigan #2 (Wyeth). Have a swatch. No cardigan yet. Supposed to be finished by September 24th. Still totally possible.
-Gigantic, Playhouse, Fabric, Bunk Bed Cover. Don’t ask. Will avert my eyes. Possibly kick you in the shins and run away. It’s half done.
-Tilly’s Pink hat. Stalled. Might be tired of pink for the moment.
-Unnamed pair of socks. They are all the boring colors I like in socks. They make me want to hike. They look like this:
-Elemental Linens Placemat. Almost done. Very Pretty.
-Beer. Shiner Oktoberfest. Love Shiner. They make pretty cans. Drinking it so I can make this from the can.
–The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan. Well written, but slow goin’s. Keep getting distracted by non-fiction (French Kids Eat Everything, The Island of the Colorblind, Life’s Too Short to Fold Fitted Sheets, The Midwestern Table, and Home Made Winter (oliebollen, people, and fluffy pies).
-The dishes. Dishwasher is pretending to work, but does not. Maintenance people have not fixed it due to confusion. I have started sporting yellow, dish gloves to save my hands. Spent 3 hours last night doing dishes. Haven’t touched them today.
You will all be happy to note, however, that I did finish one project today (sadly, not crafty). I tried to share this joyful accomplishment with the husband, but he seemed disinterested….
…I organized my candles! Ta da! I know impressive, right?
I kept the candles that fit with the candle-holders I have and got rid of the ones I don’t use. I also broke some tapered ones and made two sizes of candles. Two sizes! For two different candle holder things! I also decided to buy only votive candles in the smelly (I mean scented) variety. I really don’t need giant Fall or Christmas-y candles hanging around all year.
It’s been an epiphany…truly.
And now that I have the candle situation under control, I can now move on to other projects.
I may need to get out more.
