After not having done the Tuesday question for a while, I thought I would go back to it. Hope you all participate.
This weeks question:
Do you make most things for yourself. to give to others, Charity or to sell?
Myself, I made most things to sell or to give away as gifts. I now find I have hardly anything in my house I made for myself and am trying to change that. Time to pretty up my own house with some color.
Over this last week I have started working on getting my crafts room cleaned up and organized, so I can see what I have or not, plus I am really tired of the clutter that has accumulated. So I have a lot of short pieces of yarn left over from varies projects and one of them were some ends of cotton. I decided I would make some can sleeves with them. Got to admit they look rather plain, but I had no further yarn left over. Here they are:
Maybe at a later point, when I have some leftovers again I will crochet some flowers to add. I also found out, that I most likely will not crochet any amigurimi, as my hands really hurt (good old Arthur) afterwards. I guess I have to learn my limits and that is one of them.
Now to my feeling Shame. As I just told you, I am cleaning out the crafts room. Oh what I found. All the unfinished projects that got left behind over the last year. Shame, shame on me. I really, really need to finish them and that is a promise I am making myself. As of today, only unfinished projects will be worked on, till they are all gone. Yap, that's what I need to do.
Here is a list of the unfinished projects: (This way I am accountable to myself)
4 different afghans (yes 4, the shame)
2 different shawls, one a granny and the other one an Elise
1 loom knitted hat
1 set of boot cuffs
1 knitted cowl
1 Easter project
1 fall poncho
In the next few days I will take some pictures of the unfinished things and as I will go along will post updates of how I am coming along.
Thanks for listening to my bickering at myself. Hope your day is bright and beautiful.
Till next time from my neck of the woods.
