Crafty ADD Update #10

Another week - and more work done on my projects! I didn't quite reach all my goals, but I finally got to work on some projects that have been rattling around my brain, so that makes me happy! Now to the details...

Crochet

I finally started weaving in the ends on my baby blanket! I'd been dreading it because the yarn was freying and unraveling badly, so I thought it was going to be a major headache. I finally sat down yesterday though, and it was no where near as bad as I thought it was going to be! I used a small dish of water, would wet my fingers, and then use my wet fingers to twist the yarn ends into submission. Other than my fingers turning rather pruney...it went smoothly!

I think I need to step up my crocheting though... I have about 4 weeks left until the shower, and at the pace that I've been going that will put me a row short of where I need to be :P So I just need to crochet a wee bit more each week than I have been and I should be fine! Good news is I might finally get to go to the new knitting and crochet group my Mom's been going to, and if I make it tonight, that will mean some dedicted time to crocheting. Hopefully my health will hold and I can go!


Cross-Stitch

I finally drafted the pattern for the book mark I've been wanting to start on for the last few weeks! Unfortuntely I now need to go to the store because, despite having two full boxes of thread, I don't have the right color grey for the brain I'm going to do on the right side of the words that you see above.

And for those of you who are going "Huh???" - It's a quote from the show Firefly :P

Jewelry

Yes, I'm STILL working on this bracelet! I told myself I'd have it done by the end of the weekend, and though I did work on it, it just didn't happen. Oh well. Should have it done by next week :P

I did get the pieces out for a necklace I've been wanting to do for weeks, so that makes me happy in the jewelry department! I finally have all the components I need. I won the charm in a blog contest and I've been wanting to make a necklace with it ever since! Actually stringing it is on my to-do list tody.

Treasury

I'm in a treasury! Aways a great way to wake up :) My earrings are in the middle, second row from the bottom.

Good thing about crocheting/ knitting is that it keeps you warm when you're working on it... Looks great, Ruthie.

My profound sympathies! I spent all last week finishing NOTHING, because I have seven projects going at once! They will all get done...eventually...
