I think this year is going to be another year of focusing on UFOs or PhDs or WIPs — whatever your preferred terminology is. It has been my off and on goal to finish so many before starting new projects and I’m fairly good at doing that now. So!
I wrote down 13 projects that I want to finish in the upcoming year.
Some of them I’m excited to be working on, others I’ve put off for years for various reasons (looking at you evil #6!!!). I’m not going to restrict myself on new projects, so long as I keep working on the old ones. I would, however, like to see how much I can work out of my stash this year. …which may prove impossible since I’m the MOH in an April wedding and things are getting a bit nuts and I just got the stuff to learn to play with vinyl so I can save myself a bunch of money through sweat equity. We’ll see how that goes!
I had to ask for a photo of the Tunisian crochet blanket I finished last month. In my delight to have it done, I shipped it out without taking a single photo of it past the panel strips stage. I put a super soft, plush fleece on the back to make it extra snuggly and warm.
…and to start the new year off with a question/survey thing!
***ASK your Husband these questions and write EXACTLY what they!***
•What is something I say a lot?
“Rub feets?” or “You should be doing your chores.” Is it sad that I’ve driven you to say that so much?
•What makes me sad?
When I don’t follow through with what I say I’m going to do.
•What’s my favorite thing to do?
Play with kittens.
•How tall am I?
You used to be 5’10” but now I’m wonder if you’re not 6′ because often times it feels like you’re the same height or taller than me…unless I’m varying like crazy.
•What’s my best feature?
Probably your incredible wisdom for someone your age.
•What do I do when you’re not around?
Only when I’m not around? I think you’re mostly doing crafting when I’m not around but you also do that when I’m around. Talking to people on the interwebs?
•What’s my favorite TV show?
Man, that’s hard. Peaky Blinders? I don’t know if that’s your favorite though. Maybe it’s Fraggle Rock. I can’t imagine you liking Fraggle Rock as much as Peaky Blinders these days. Is it’s Sherlock? I think it’s Sherlock.
•If I became famous what would it be for?
I think right now it’d be for crafting I would say. That’s the number one thing you do that has public outreach.
•Where can I most likely be found?
• What is my favorite restaurant?
It’s definitely a Brazilian steakhouse. It used to be Fogo de Chão.
•Where is one place I don’t like to be?
In the presence of my dad. Maybe I should change that. Is this publicly accessible?
•If I could go anywhere where would it be?
You’d probably like to go see Antarctica.
•How do you annoy me?
-laughs- By having difficulty listening. I think that works for a lot of them.
•Who’s my favorite person?
•What’s my favorite kind of pop?
•What is my favorite kind of food?
•You get a call that I am in trouble, who am I with?
I’ve only ever gotten a call one time that you were in trouble and you were with the animals. (I was moving the last of our stuff to a new house and the wheel literally fell off of my car en route. I wrecked into the guardrail with all of the critters in tow and had to call him at his brand new job to come pick us up. He clarified after a few minutes of thought that most of our friends were goody two-shoes and if I went to jail it’d be for a murder-spree that likely included him so I couldn’t call him for help.)
