Friday Morning Weekly Progress Report


Doesn't that just sound all office and professional? 
Friday Morning Weekly Progress Report.
 
I really do go over the past week at work
on Fridays
and
make the list for the next week.
 
This is a
Home Progress Report though.
 
Afghans.
Six of them.
One down, five to go
and
the
progress on each.
 

Because if you live in an ADD world as I do...
you know one project is never enough.
 
Forty-five or so is really the magic number
and
I guarantee
I have at least that many projects started around here!

Some are stashed,
some are blatantly staring me in the face.
 

These are all the ones
stashed in the living room,
if
you don't count the doodle art projects started in the one corner
behind the couch.

 
Shhhh,
let's keep that quiet!
Hopefully next Friday
I will have another one finished.
 
One a week would take me to....
December 19th...
I might have to step up that goal a little!

Paper, Paper, Paper


The possibilities
were/are endless.
 
And, of course, I have lots of product
to facilitate them.

What did we do before Pinterest!
 
Oh wait...we read books.

The paper was flying at my house this week.
 
What a mess that makes!



But I made a dent in the stash anyway.



My display at the Kittanning Library meeting
yesterday.

What a nice group of ladies that I met!

I hope I inspired some of them to try something new!

 
And these are mine.
 
Storage for more
"inspirations"
in my sewing room.
 
The paper is from old
Workbasket magazines.
 
Anyone remember those?
 
Shades of Gray,
not 50 of them,
just a few and much tamer in my basket sitting near my recliner.
 
Another one for the Linus Project.
 
One down, five to go!

Do they realize...


...how soon this is all going to end?
Shirt sleeves and bicycle helmets
will soon be replaced with
scarves and mittens,
hats and boots
and
winter
coats.

Let's not tell them!
 
Let's enjoy these last few nice days
and
remember them
when we are
freezing and complaining!

Glitter,Glue,Paper...Oh My!


Elmer's
White 
Wood
Carpenter's
Hot
Aerosol
527
e6000
Sticks
Fabric

Not a fan of any of them.  
Glue is not my thing. 

A necessary evil in the crafting world,
but I still cringe when I have to use too much of it.

I am persevering.


I am to do a talk on something at a luncheon this week. 

Working away at samples to show. 


And these were BIG gluing!




I have quite the mess that I am trying to paint my
way out of before the end of the week!
