Alright, I don’t know if you guys even care, but I’m telling you ANYWAY. Remember WAY back at the beginning of the year when I talked about the projects I wanted to get done this year? And then later I posted this about finishing one of them? Well, I finished another one.
I finally finished the stitchery for Kalena. And it only took me until she was 16 months old! Whoops. I had to eat my words when she turned 1 because I definitely told Brian at some point (when he was making fun of me for taking so long) that I would be done by her first birthday FOR SURE. My bad. But now I’m done! And it’s framed and lovely and we just need to hang it up.
For the record, I think part of my problem is that I didn’t go out and pick the stitchery until after she was born. I already have a good start on this new baby’s project. At the risk of eating these words too, I should EASILY have it done by his first birthday.
Moving on. I am going to revise on of the projects I want to finish. I had the memory quilt on the list, but when everything happened and we moved back to GJ that quilt got put into storage and there was no way I was going to go digging through our storage unit just to give myself more work. So I had written it off as not going to get done this year. And THEN I found it in a box in the garage. Like 3 weeks ago. But by that point I’d already decided I wasn’t going to finish it, so instead I’m just switching it out with a new project. I bought some cotton flannel and I’m going to make some receiving blankets for the new baby. And since the new baby is coming before the end of the year, I’d BETTER finish these before then as well! So there you have it. The two projects left on my list: Kalena’s baby book (about 1/2 done) and the receiving blankets. I can still make it. Right?
