Although I have been feeling very creative lately but was getting very frustrated. The yarn was crappy, paint wouldn't dry fast enough, no room to work on anything. But finally today I have a had a break through. just about finished knitting my first hat, and finally sewed together all the rows of squares for my quilt. Here are the pics Nat, not even close to your glamorous quilt but I am very relieved that this is finally in the works and not living in a box under my bed like it has been for the last 5 years. I have also been buying more fabric for some projects. Cloth blocks and a bib for my friends baby boy.

Also hoping to knit him some little thumb-less mittens. And also bought a ton of yarn to hopefully conquer my first afghan. I think I am going to crochet this one though not sure how fun it would be to knit one, little bulky. So many things so little time. I have been coming across allot of really inspiring blogs lately and loving it. Makes me want to do even more. I am slowing trying to add them to the side bar as I go. Well I hope everyone had a happy Christmas and wishing you all a Happy New Year!!!

clean slate...

growing up remember when you would picture what you wanted/or thought your life would be like? Your home, your favorite things, your clothes, etc. Have you ever taken a moment to sit back and look to see if you are in all those things you dreamed of? I am constantly looking at my life and only seeing bits and pieces of what I wanted. Other pieces have just found their way in out of convenience or cost or dare I say laziness? That really gets to me. I am hoping that this year more things will start falling into the dreamed of pile and not the laziness pile. what do you wish you had from your dreamed of pile?
