I’m still working on the Irish Hiking Scarf and will be for a while so I doubt I’ll have any else happening until it is done. I am one of those people who don’t keep a bunch of works in progress. I generally try to stick to one or two projects at a time. I currently have the scarf, three popsicle toys and a pair of pjs in progress.
This is my progress on the scarf as of this morning. It is coming along, albeit slowly. I generally only work on projects while Paige is sleeping because she is far too active during the day to get anything done. The scarf is turning out beautifully. I’m absolutely in love with it. I usually give away most things or make them for my daughter but I think I might just keep this one for myself. I haven’t decided yet.
I also have three popsicle toys crocheted. All I need to do is stuff, sew shut and put on the face. I really don’t know why I haven’t finished this yet. It’s not like me to get it nearly done and then stop. I’ve been having trouble focusing lately which leads to my last WIP. I have a pair of fleece pj bottoms cut out but haven’t sewn them. I decided that I want to embellish them before I sew them up but I can’t decide how I want to embellish them so they are sitting on my sewing desk waiting. I can’t decide between a flower, a butterfly or a heart. I do know that I’d like to use some sequins and that requires a trip to Michaels so it will be a while before that project gets finished. Naturally, by the time I finish it the weather will likely be too warm for her to wear them. LOL. That sounds about par for the course.
Having three WIPs is a lot for me. Hrm… well actually I have another WIP but I’ve shelved it for now. The quilt using Papa’s clothes. I have the shirts all cut up and ready but I’m struggling with continuing on it. It is a very emotional project and too hard to work on right now. I’ve put it on hold and I’ll see how I feel about it this summer or fall. Every time I see the bags of fabric I get all misty-eyed and know it is too soon.
