My first hexie flower put together with a ladder stitch
Daddy and Thomas were watching the Patriots while I sewed and the other 2 kids were playing in their room
I am also working on a doll sized granny square afghan. I was able to spend some time working on it while the kids played at the park!
4 flower hexies 1 completed with a whip stitch and 3 with the ladder stitch
I have been trying to organized my craft things and have been trying to get rid of some things. I have free cycled some things, but there have been some stuff that no one seems interested in. I have some yarn that no one has wanted and I have some stamps that I haven't posted yet. I am hoping to get more stuff together so that I can get rid of rings and have a more organized place to work and know what supplies I have. It's definitely a work in progress and really difficult to get rid of things. I also just found out that I have some yarn that I totally forgot about. I think once I finish some of the projects that I am working on, I need to go up in the attic and decide if this yarn is stuff I need/want. or if I should just get rid of it.
It has been nice to have a more organized space. I am not making a ton of things, but I really have been able to create more easily, know what I have for supplies, and not have to stress about cleaning up a project in the middle of working on it. I like having a place for my dewing machine to be out all the time. I like having small projects organized so that I can work on something while watching TV. Of course all the new shows are starting up so it is really important to have things that I can work on while watching my favorite shows. That way I can be productive as well as veg out in front of the TV and enjoy some good shows! The funny thing is, I really like to be organized, but I am not one to get organized easily!
What are you making for National Sewing Month?
I think my next post will be about my Christmas list. I need to get a plan in place if I want to make things for people for Christmas. I need to have a plan in place so that I can get started. I think I'll take the kids out in the back yard and work on my list!
