So already month 2 and this is my first post of 2017. May I wish you all a belated happy healthy and prosperous year ahead.
Why the silence? Well... I could list a multitude of reasons but that would bore you half to death, so needlessly I won't list my excuses suffice to say I am back, maybe not with a vengeance but I am back.
All has been it's usual hectic time here in the eclectichome, nothing new to report on my state of crafting except to inform you I still suffer badly from beginning way too many projects and failing to complete many of them, anyone else the same? Here is my shameful list of those projects I have begun in 2017 and as yet not completed:
3D knitted and felted chicken: used the wrong wool and did not felt as it should and now I've lost all desire
|Failure 1, but I am still tempted to give it another try|
2D knitted and felted chicken: again wrong wool, will I not ever learn
|Failure 2, again love the idea of this chicken, so will try again|
Attic 24 Moorland CAL: it's an on going current online CAL so I am on track, yay!
|At least I am on track with this blanket and |
I love the gentle rhythm of it
3 crocheted cati all in various stages of incompleteness, need to source mini terracotta pots so at a standstill
|These were such fun to make and are going to be used |
on a crochet class I will be teaching, so
must get a move on and complete them
Knitted mittens, on the second one, it's nearly done: must get a wriggle on
|The easiest ever mitten pattern, am 3/4 way |
through mitt number 2
Small doll crocheted amigurami: not looking as good as I had hoped so a little 'off' this project
|Am totally out of love with this and |
may just abandon it
Now that I have publicly shamed myself for too many WIPs and failures, I better hop along and try to rectify the situation, I had said I would not have any resolutions this year, but this post is making me think that I should really sort out this syndrome of mine and finish SOMETHING...ANYTHING...
until next time, stay well and safe... ♥
