Why haven't I blogged?
First of all 13th Colony Bay is still in progress.....crap, crap, crap.....but I'm getting there.
Second, I'm thinking about the following projects:
I want to make each of my three boys one of the 63 Squares afghan. (google Leisure Arts 63 Squares afghan or do a flickr search)
I want to make each of my three boys a quilt.
I want to make sure each of my sons has a cross stitched Christmas ornament for every year they have been on this earth, that's 21 for one, 18 for another and 13 for the youngest. How many have I made so far, ZERO, big fat goose egg. If my math is correct I need to make 52 cross stitched ornaments. Hmmmmm......interesting one a week should catch me up but I'm already behind by five weeks now.
I want to make a quilt for my bed.
I want to hand embroidered a bed skirt to go around it.
I want to make this really cool hopscotch afghan for my great niece Alli Mack(do little girls even know what hopscotch is any more?) I saw this afghan in the Herrschnerr's catalog, I'm in love and I have to make it for someone, so she's my victim.
I want to make granny square backpacks for her two older sisters Laney and Harleigh(also found in the Herrschnerr's catalog)
I want to make my little buddy John an elephant/monkey afghan I saw, yes, in the Herrschnerr's catalog. It's not really practical for cuddling under but cute as all get out.
I want to frakkin' learn how to knit socks.
I want to knit dish cloths.
I want to make or even buy cool new living room curtains and really sweet lace curtains for the kitchen window--I'm totally down with buying these items already made.
I want to finish the dragon I started cross stitching for Jack sometime back in the 90s. All I have left is backstitching and fractional stitches on 14ct black aida(that's why it remains unfinished, fractional stitches on stupid 14ct aida)
I want to start The Primitive Needle's Talking Board, NOW but I can't start anything new until 13th Colony is done.
Other than the dragon and 13th Colony every project mentioned above that I want to be working on now is a new project. 52 Ornaments, 5 afghans, 4 quilts, yada, yada, yada.....
No wonder I can't focus on anything at the moment. No wonder my head fills like it's going to explode whenever I sit down to work on 13th Colony, I want to be working on a gazillion other things.
I'm not even going to mention the clothing patterns I want to cut out and sew up, and that probably won't fit. I won't mention that I've been searching thrift shops and Craig's List for cheap dress form just to play around with because we all know I'm not a seamstress, and nothing will ever fit me because I refuse to see how fat my ass really is. All I know is it's a long way from being a 36.....
And to just show how insane I have become, I had a dream last night that I was hosting a crafty reality show on Bravo. It was way cool.....
