A finished object(s)

Part of my New Year's resolution or rather 'plan for this year' included participating in the NaKniMitMo over on Ravelry. We were to knit a pair of mittens in the month of January. Easy enough. I finished one mitten. But only started on the 15th because I was making a quilt for my Mom for her Birthday.

Here's the quilt I made her.

And here's my one mitten. It is the Swedish Fish (Ravelry link) pattern by SpillyJane. She's Canadian too! Yay Canada! Hoping to start the other one today.

52 Fridays Week 5/52

My SP is a little different this week. Tuesday was our 2nd Wedding Anniversary. This time two years ago we were on a ship in the Carribean. We sure could use some warm weather now. -32 C(-25.6F) with the windchill..brrrr.

52 Fridays 5/52

Weekend plans:

- Clean, organize and destash my sewing room.
- Knit.
- Do some sewing.

Hmmm..something seems familiar with those plans.

Valuable Insight

Things I have learned while re-organizing my sewing room.

I love pencils.
I love notebooks and notepads.
I need to stop buying fabric.
I am not sure I will outlive my ginormous fabric stash.
I enjoy writing lists.
I do not follow to-do lists, just write them.
I enjoy procrastinating.
I have been struggling with the same life goals for 4 years. This one not so fun. But it’s time to take action and get some of those things checked off my to-do list of life.

I am still cleaning.

52 Fridays Week 3/52

I'm a little late posting this picture. I was away at a ladies crafting/sewing/knitting retreat for 4 days. Lots of fun! This is pretty much what I did the whole time.

52 Fridays 3/52

So relaxing but also exhausting with all the staying up late, getting up early. And the laughing! It's equivalent to a million sit-ups I'm sure.

52 Fridays Week 2/52

It's Friday again already! Good thing my phone can take pictures. And thanks to Lisa I now know how to email upload to flickr. Yay technology. Also allows for no editing. hmm.

My little corner at work. Notice the festive decorating.

52 Fridays 2/52

This is photo number 92 of the 94 I took. In my defense it's very hard to take your own pictures with an iphone, no actual button to push, so you just smile and tap your finger a million times and hope for the best.

52 Fridays Week 1/52

52 Fridays Week #1

This project is going to be quite interesting. It took 85 photos to like one of them. I'm hoping that ratio will change as the year goes on.
