One of my New Years Resolutions was not to add to my bulging craft room and the many projects I have either started or bought supplies to do.
With this in mind I started the new year working on a cross-stitching kit I bought only 8 months ago...lol
This project is a christmas banner of a dog and cat carolling. Cute as can be and finally finished to proudly display next holiday season.
With this project proudly under my belt, I set out to find another unfinished craft lost in the abyss of my craft room. Back in December I had stumbled upon a LYS with the most heavenly selection of yarns. As I browsed the shelves I came across something so soft I knew it had to come home with me. I happily bought 5 balls of Luxury Collection Alpaca Silk in Wine and stored it for future use.
I looked thru my "hopeful" patterns and decided upon Clapotis
Deciding on the stole-size I began my journey. About 2/3 the way thru I ran out of the lovely wool and headed to the LYS to purchase more only to find out that they no longer had the color in stock. After some hyperventilating, I decided to browse e-bay and found a vender who sold the wool but had none of my lovely wine listed. My dearest hubby suggested e-mailing the person to see if they had some in stock somewhere.
The next morning I found an e-mail from this person saying they were just about to list the said color as an auction. Promptly 5 more balls were bought....I was not going to run out again. After another week of work, I can happily say that another project is done.
So now I have 2 completed forgotten projects finished. What should I do next?
Sewing, Knitting, Crocheting, Painting, Scrapbooking. Hmmmmm???
Stay tuned to find out.
