I am such a dork.
I like to make things A LOT, in fact I like the making part SO much that I hate finishing things and slow down to a tortoise pace when the end of the project is nigh. This is why I don’t always zoom through projects, rather I like to get to know the thing I’m making, get attached and take my time. The idea of parting with it because it’s done can sometimes be a little off-putting, not because I will miss the thing, but because I will miss making it. I won’t make that thing ever again. That thing is done. Sob.
It’s okay though. I will rebound into another project before you know it. I’ll toughen up and face the next crafty challenge the best I can. Gulp.
Here are the three things I am making at the moment:
This is the granny square blanket – I zoomed through this and then put it away because I am not QUITE ready to hand it over. HOW SELFISH. LOL. I am going to finish it this week. I swear. It’s so close to being done it’s not funny.
I am working through this each day and loving all the colours popping out at me. This is sort of half done, but I only started it on Mother’s Day so expect some serious slowing down coming up as I near its end.

Okay. I admit that I’m going really slowly with this. Mostly it’s because I am wanting it to be a Winter-long project and we aren’t even at Winter yet. On one side the squares sit with they ridged edges up against each other, poking out. On the other side, the squares pop up like little puffs. It’s pretty satisfying to watch it all coming together.
AND. I have another project that I am BUSTING to start. But I am not allowing myself to. Not until I finish one of these ones. (More on that – and the first finished thing – soon.)
Hope your day is coming along nicely. We just went for the fastest walk ever, trailing along behind the (lightning-fast) Ari who was on a mission to buy Max a gozleme with humus and tzatziki. And chips. Yum. Totes jelly. We sped there and back and now my feet hurt and my lungs are shuffling about. Urk. I think I need hot tea…
Stay warm, peaches! Chat soon!
