I took a picture of all my current works in progress. The crochet blanket and the hexie quilt are long term projects. The hexie quilt wouldn't be that long term of a project if I'd take the time to read the instructions and find out the next step. The knitting in the lower left corner needs to be frogged and restarted. It's a cowl and I want it longer. The way it's turning out now it would be a choker. I know I won't wear it at the current size. The orange snowman looking thing is suppose to be a scarecrow cat. I started this back in October. All I need to do to finish it is close the bottom and make a hat. I did the hardest part of sewing on the nose. No progress has been made on r2d2. I was going to make spring coasters for our kitchen table. I have one and it's not finished. I've used this pattern before but for some reason this time it's much larger. I will probably frog the coaster and try a different pattern. The gold yarn in the upper right corner is a cowl I will wear to work tomorrow. I need to wear red and yellow, it's a school thing. I don't wear much yellow. It's not a color that looks good on me. I'm hoping gold is close enough.
I love this yarn and I like knitting the cowl. My sister will be visiting the week before Easter. I hope she will be able to help me restart it. We may have to make a trip to the yarn store to seek help from a professional. : )
Gardening always gets pushed to the back of the home projects. I always have high hopes but life gets busy. This spring I was inspired by the new Taproot magazine to try planting cosmos. The seeds were planted last weekend and they are already growing. I hope they survive once I plant them in the flower bed.
I'm still trying to understand our DSLR camera. I have a new smaller camera bag, a new camera strap, and two books. So far I've not taken any pictures I've liked.
I've been obsessed with reading this journaling website/shop Jenni Bick DC. The store is located in Dupont Circle, Washington D.C. I have lived in the Washington D.C. area for twenty years and I've never been to Dupont Circle. To say I want to go is an understatement. I am already plotting a trip for when my sister is visiting, lucky for me she enjoys shops like this one. I hope we won't be disappointed. Do I need a new journal? NO! Do I want to go look at pretty journals? Yes! Just so you know, I am in no way affiliated with this store. I happened upon it via Instagram and thought it looked like a place I would love to explore.
The day I took this picture of Avi I had a headache. I could totally relate to wanting to sleep in this position.
