New Projects, Old Projects, Retiring Projects

What a Saturday! 
Finally, I picked up the paintbrushes and got productive.
I have had three of these wine barrel lids in my
basement for quite awhile now.
It was time to get at least one of them finished.

And some folk art painting,
Helen Cavin inspired.
That book is dated
1989,
only about six  years
after I started painting.
It was time to use the book for something!

Another new project is this scarf.
This is fun yarn to work with.
Mom wanted some scarves for gifts
for Christmas next year.
She bought yarn,
how about that for getting a jump on things?

 
Under the category of
Old Projects
is this baby afghan.
I need to get it done.
Always good to have them finished
BEFORE
the baby is born.
And
Retiring Projects.
I am putting these away for now. 
These nine were all made today. 
That's over 25 of them
and
for now,
that is it
 


They are fun,
they are addictive,
but really,
it's time to move on.

Gorgeous painting! I could never get the shading right on that stuff... Fun yarn! I bet those scarves are so soft and warm!

All your projects look great. Love that pomp-a-doodle yarn. I'll have to give that stuff a try.
The wine barrel lids are beautiful. I've always wished I could paint but I'm just no good at it
