I am still "plodding along" with the Jesus bookmarks but working on #9 of 10 or 13 maybe. I was thinking of my neighbor, one for my daughter and myself but we'll see. I wish I had something else to show you but this is what I've been working on and only in the evening.
I wanted to join the Downton Abbey MKAL but with yarn and pattern it was $57.00 and you don't even know what you'll end up with? I like a good mystery but not a $57.00 dollar one! LOL!
But I did join this.......I found it through our very own Gracie is not My Name and her Saturday post. The link to sign up is here
The object is to utilize the books and patterns you already have....sort of like printed stash, lol!
Since I am knee deep in toy making I thought I would pick this for my first book......
I'm already making a couple things out of it but they are not finished. Now that the Christmas "making" is done I will move on with the other holidays and birthdays and maybe some socks for me? Please?
Mainly this half of the YOP year will be spent using what I have, finishing all sorts of WIPs and organizing my projects and supplies. Below is what it looks like now...........old, mostly "free" bags I've gotten from all over (except for the crocheted one) and I have no idea what's in any of them so I have to "root" through them each to find what I'm looking for. And yes that is my Pilates machine which should be used in a whole different way!
So the first step is to create "tags for bags" so I could just check the tag and not have to "root" through it.........I thought these might do the trick......
or these were pretty....
or maybe these where the shape could denote what was inside?
Anyway that is only a temporary fix until I get gorgeous bags sewn for all my projects.......like this one from Norththreads ( I could not find the link, sorry but these are all on my Pinterest board under graphics and sewing and there are lots more there too)
or this which Joanne over at Rose Dahlia whipped up to put her new sock project in?
Too cute! I think I would actually get more projects done if they were stored in these darling bags....I mean who wouldn't want to reach for them? You should really stop over at Joanne's as she has her "finishes" from 2014 and oh my word what that gal accomplishes is amazing!!!! She is very talented and does just about everything...a super woman for sure!
So, as much as I am going to be focusing on WIP's I will also be sewing up some tempting bags to house them in and also hopefully sell some. I hope that helps me with more finishes in the end and not just more WIPs! LOL! We shall see!
