Yes, dear friends. It's true... my project space is out of control!
As I sit in my favorite chair, this is the mess to my left...
and this is the mess to my right. How did I reach this point? My friend Denise would tell you that we both suffer from "Flight of Fancy." In other words, we're each easily distracted. I really don't know how I reached this point. Shall I share with you what created this mess?
About a year ago, my granddaughter Lily asked me to make her a star blanket in light blue and dark blue. Crocheting afghans is not my favorite thing to do, but how can a grandma say no? Lily will be here in one week. I'm hoping to finish her star blanket by then. I wonder if she even remembers asking for it?
I was inspired to start a crocheted doily because of Anika's posts. Honestly, I love thread crochet, but it doesn't hold a candle to tatting. So, a doily that I used to be able to finish in one day is now in its second week.
The Grant Park Drama Club alumni are going to perform Chicago at the beginning of August as a fund raiser. I was asked to contribute a raffle item, so I'm knitting a shawlette in this pretty peach color. Denise told me about a free pattern on Ravelry called Summer Flies. The pattern is very easy to follow, and I know I have time to finish it!
I'm still tatting Stumpy motifs for The Shuttle Shop. You might think that this would be a tiresome project, but it's not! I love seeing how each color thread looks tatted up, and I'm really enjoying using pretty shuttles from my collection!
Speaking of shuttles from my collection... the blinging bug has struck, and I found some shuttles stashed away that were just screaming for a little bling! Sigh... what's a girl to do?
I really need to clean up/organize my mess. I have family descending in a week to celebrate my 60th birthday... at my request... so I guess I'd better get to work... after a little tatting. ; )
