What AREN'T I working on right now??? I hate when I do this to myself but I have too many irons in the fire. LOL I'm knitting socks (always have a few pair on the needles), working on a wedding quilt, making a basket from fabric covered clothesline, and trying to set up my small weaving loom in hopes of starting a "rag rug" table runner. I'm also trying to work on a family tree scrapbook...and have a basket full of smaller projects I really want to get to. Too bad I have to sleep lol

LOL!!! I think we need many irons in the fire to keep our sanity!

I have been working on something uniquely different. . . Check out the "Marketplace" thread, under "Fairies are Farmgirls too"

Jean, I know the feeling. Today, I am sorting and putting some fabrics away. I have cut out aprons, but no time to sew them up right now. Not in my plans but my dh's plans.

I am trying to get a baby blanket done for my daughter's teacher. I don't know why I can't get it finished. Too many irons in the fire.

I have put out a plastic bin to fill with homemade Christmas gifts. I want to get the Homemade Christmas merit badge. I have started a scarf in Christmas colors. I plan to make ornies too. Most of my gifts will be sent to Ohio to my family members.

Wow, all of you are sooooo busy!!! Guess I had better get busy with what's on my plate too. Finished up all but one order for the week, So that means Play Time!!! I know, I am just a big kid and love to make things!!! So I will be busy finishing up some pin cushions tonight. . they are a large strawberry style. Created from a pattern dating from the early 1800's. Typically they are filled with Rosemary, however, I have filled mine with polyester fiberfill. Getting things done for our big fair June 5th and 6th.

Jessie-
This is the wonderful, magical time where you can decide what to do next. Nothing is hurrying you. Enjoy it!!! LOL

I saw somewhere coffee cup cozy. It is a crocheted piece to stick on your cup so you don't burn yourself. I think that would be a great idea. You can get nice cups so cheap. Then just crochet it to fit.

Still trying to get the baby blanket done and the Mermaid I am stitching for my Hubby's birthday that was last week!!!

Jessie: You are NOT a slug !! Ask me what I accomplished during the past year or so....nothing !!! I'm just getting back into the craft driver seat again. :)) You have to be inspired.

needy: I will definately keep you both in my thoughts and prayers. And I'll send cyber soup for a speedy recovery.

Jessie, congratulations for finishing your UFO projects. I have one that needs to get done, but every time I want to work on it, something else comes up.

By the time, he gets this, he will be in pre-school or even kindergarten. I have another one that needs to get started as well.

Finished your ufos?? How is that even possible? LOL! I'd better get off the 'puter or I won't get anything done today.

Needy - feel better soon!!

Sharon - I have a preschooler who would LOVE that quilt, so don't worry, you have time! :-)

I am working on thinking about working on something! How is that for lack of commitment? No, really I knit, crochet or craft everyday on something. What I really should be doing is posting a new blog article...that is what I am really far behind on. Maybe that will be my project for today.

Blessings,

Today is scrapbooking club day. I've missed the past few months since I was off to work and have 2 small scrap books to complete for my grand niece's Bday (yesterday) and my niece's mother's day gift. I'm also finalizing a sewing box for my niece's bday gift. The badges have inspired me and the photos of what other have done were great. I found a wooden box I had that came with tea. I've layered it in fabric and cushioned the top. Now I just need the insides, minus buttons. Had lots of those. Once I get it completed I'll post a picture. I'm very excited about it.
