Can never do just 1 project at a time...
Is it just me or do you need to do more than one project at once, I find I get bored very easily especially if you are doing the same thing all the time. I have now got about 8 projects half finished or just started.
I have several patchwork cushions about halfway to completion, a couple of fabric storage boxes almost completed, and about 6 sock monkeys which are sewn and require stuffing an stitching together.
As well as the two projects I am working on now, the hexagon patchwork, which I am now making into a appliqué quilt, rough sketch below, and my newest project the knitted patchwork blanket which I am loving doing the wool is just so soft, cannot wait for it to be finished.
All this is being done in-between the housework, working part time at weekends, looking after my three beautiful girls too. I honestly don't know how I have time.
Oh wait; I don't as there is always a long list of things that need doing, I still haven't dug over the veg patch in the garden which I desperately need to do as the seed potatoes need to be put in asap. I have several other veg plants which have now grown nicely from seed and need more space and need to get a bit of potting on, I have loads to do ....
But on hold now really until Monday, going to do a bit more knitting then try to get a bit of sleep as I am in work at 11pm first full night shift in a while so I am sure I will be very tired. Then another full night tomorrow and a little short shift in Sunday night, then off Monday for the week again. I only work 3 night a week but its at the weekend which is a shame as I lose out on spending time with my family. But until I win the lottery its needs must I am afraid, and at least I have a job. So for that I am very grateful.
Well must sign off and get back to my knitting, back soon with more updates but this will likely be on Monday now.
Oh almost forgot - bringing home our new little kitten "Willow" this weekend too, so excited.
Bye for now
