What?! I actually spent enough time in my quilt room to finish a project? Yup, I did. I truly did.
This is another crocheted rug using strips of cloth that I started . . . oh, I don't know, maybe 74-5 years ago. I didn't have too many rounds to finish it which is just what I managed to do a couple of nights ago.
It's now in its place in front of the door that goes to our attached garage, at the end of our (rather narrow) entryroom. We enter the back of the house (the main entry for all practical purposes) onto our enclosed porch, and then into this small room where we have closet space on one side for all outdoor clothing, and on the other side is some closed cabinet storage and a couple of file cabinets that I've wanted to get out of there . . . well, almost forever. Once they are relocated (yeah, just where to relocate them is the stumbling block), we can extend the built-in cabinets. Actually, I'd like to make that area into a closet where we could store our out-of-season clothing that is now currently stored in the attic. Not the most convenient place when it comes time to pack away the heavy winter duds and get out the summer clothes. And then, of course, the reverse happens in the autumn.
I took count this morning and found I have five different projects scattered around my quilt room that are in one stage or another of completion. It's not that I don't like to finish projects. (Honest!) It's just that I have so many projects I want to do, and can't seem to stop myself from flitting (flit-flit) from knitting needles to sewing machine to crochet hook to needle and thread.
These five projects I counted are just the ones I have actively been working on. They don't include all of the UFOs stashed away with the label, "To Be Finished . . . Someday." (Can any of you relate?) Then there's the 3-ring binder full to the bursting with ideas for projects I'm nowhere near starting.
Well, at least I am content in the knowledge that should we ever find ourselves snowbound (ha, ice-bound currently seems as if it would be more likely!), I will not be lacking for something with which to keep my mind and hands busy.
