Is it just me or does this year seem to be flying past?
Despite the fact that I was on vacation for the first twelve days of June and did little crafting between my arrival home and the last few days of the month, I managed five finishes! You can read the posts about finishing here and here.
Of course, it helps that most of those were nearly completed before I went on holidays.
In fact, most of them were on my list for May!
Let’s look at my list for June:
Bed Socks for Beulah-- finished 3 June Blanket for Emily-- finished 30 June 2013
- cardigan for me -- knit sleeves (untouched)
bind the Earth and Sky quilt-- finished 29 June 2013
- add border to Scrappy Log Cabin quilt (untouched)
finish Hexagon Project Bag-- finished 28 June 2013
Yes, I did say five. I also finished a pair of socks that had been on the needles too long. At the beginning of the year I stated that I had to finish one old knitting project before I could start a new one, and two quilting/sewing projects before I could start a new one. I also stated that “plain” socks are not counted in my “new” projects because I always have socks on the needles – they are the perfect travel companion and are great for knitting in company (unless I’m up to the heel).
So perhaps I shouldn’t count this pair as a “finish” either; but the fact of the matter is they are finished! So I did have five finishes in June even if only four count as part of the challenge!
Hey, it’s a linky party! It’s not life and death. Crafting is our hobby and we’re not supposed to take it too seriously. We’re here to encourage each other to finish those UFOs and WIPs – any finish is worth celebrating, right?
So, what's on my list for July?
- Country Houses quilt – to be finished
I want this on my bed this winter; it’s been hanging around for two years now!
- Ambassador of Love mittens – to be finished
No more Second Mitten Syndrome allowed!
- Westall Cardigan – to be finished
I’d really like to be wearing this instead of looking at it gathering dust on the table.
- Scrappy Log Cabin quilt – get the border on and turn it into a finished flimsy
It’s been hanging around here waiting long enough!
- Purple Cocoon socks – make a decision and follow through
These have been on the needles for nearly two years while I tried to make up my mind whether to frog (rippit!) or finish!
- Gift of Hope #2 quilt – to be finished
I started this in March but I was waiting to acquire some white flannelette for wadding. I have it now so it’s time to get it off the list.
Sorry, no photo, I haven’t taken one!
And I’d like to make some progress on Deb’s Diamond (knitted) Blanket, my current embroidery (outside of class) and my Dutch Caps hexagon project.
So, I’ve got quite a list but it’s winter, it’s cold and it’s great crafting weather.
I’d also like to clean out my sewing room and make the storage more functional – I’ll start by moving all yarn not in use to the spare bedroom! But that’s another post…
How did you go in June and what’s on your list for July?
