My Guild project Ring O Roses, easily becomes addictive in the week of Guild meetings and gets more attention than one day a month!
My main project The Mermaid Sea Chest, is a long term project so I have scheduled breaks. At present I am working on the outside lid. Once that is completed I plan on mothballing this project and
The planned "net-project" is C A Well's Cottage Etui which I started while away at Easter. I will construct the fob and pincushion (yeah! A trip to the LNS is needed to get appropriate ribbon) and hopefully complete the Cottage Roof before this too will be mothballed.
And the hexagons? So far I have 148 tacked up. Seems as if two of them must have a double up of the paper templates as I bought 150 of those. Whatever, I need 262 for the runner so on the next trip to the LNS will get one more packet of templates and continue tacking up pretty little hexagons.
There are three Christmas ornaments stitched and requiring construction. And the Naxos Necessaire needs to be constructed. I have all the ingredients for that too, so no excuse. Possibly at the next long holiday weekend in June? But today I got my speed skates on and managed to finish one - a small pillow which still needs a ribbon hanger.
See what I mean? Too many projects on the go at once. So I have vowed - no more succumbing to temptation. I can admire the wonderful work of others but I must not covet! I have knitting projects and dressmaking projects and a couple of requests from the HD3QBEM too so probably need to chart up dates and times like a true project manager would. Oh dear, that sounds too much like a rotation for me.
This weekend I have promised myself a new dress for the winter and today I made a start on that - there is just the hand sewing to do immediately after I push the publish button on this:-)
And guess what.... while I was compiling this list and in the middle of my dressmaking, the HD3QBEM found three items of mending she required. Truly, of making lists there is no end !
