Seeing as though I have tried to post about 4 times right now, I am going to have to cut my post today down. I have been up since 4:30 this morning working on projects, starting new ones, finishing old ones, making a huge mess everywhere I turn, I even managed to get a few hours of Christmas shopping done this afternoon. With that said I am pooped! I have been itching to get into my fabric stash and today was the day. Up above you see a chenille flag that I just basically hemmed except the outer edge. This is going in my WIP craft room which will have an Americana Motif. I think I will use this as a wall hanging. Can you believe it was one of the items in all those bags of fabric I found last week?? That alone was worth the ten dollars I spent!
Not only am I a beginning sewer, I basically have never knitted before, unless you want to count a scarf I started last Christmas and have about 4 or 5 inches going! I gave it a shot last nite again and I ripped the stitches out 4 times and left empty knitting needles on my table and figured I'd try it again in the morning. Well, I got up at 4:30, made coffee and got busy. Don't enlarge the pictures, there's a lot of mistakes but I was pretty proud of myself for getting as far as I got in 2 hours. *
**These needles are ones that Heidi at Spiritual Knitter sent me from our craft swap, Thank you Heidi***
Other things I did today: placemats, decorative stocking, finished a Christmas tray, and cut out fabric squares for a couple of upcoming projects. I'll show the rest of the pictures tomorrow. Maybe this time my post wil upload with out going out into oblivion! UGGHHHH
I feel better now that I have started some more projects AND started in on the Christmas shopping. I have been having panic attacks that it will be Christmas morning and nothing will be under the tree! That reminds me of a workmare I used to have when I waitressed back in college. I'd often dream I was the only waitress in the whole restaurant and everyone sat down at the same time and were all screaming for me and all I could do was stand there and do nothing. LOL At least now there will be at least a couple of presents under the tree even if I do have a freezeframe over the next 45 days?? 44 days?? YIKES!
