Do you ever feel like you are just spinning your wheels? That's how I felt today. Somehow I was busy the whole day and yet accomplished nothing. There are so many things I want to do and yet I just don't know where to begin, so I don't do anything. Last year I was crocheting scarves like a madwoman. I had learned a new pattern and went to town with it.
I crocheted 20 scarves, big ones and skinny ones, that I donated to Operation Hope. I also made many others that I gave as gifts. There's still one in the works -- but it's been sitting for a year now and I've yet to pick it up. So instead, I do small things like these dishcloths. Two days ago, I visited a blog on which was posted the site "crochetnmore" for this dishcloth pattern and they had shown how they wrapped up bars of soap in it as a nice little holiday gift, tied up with a bow. I am so happy when I find a new pattern that is easy enough for me to follow.
I've made two and have another in the works.
I hope I can play catch up this week and get motivated to start making all the things I keep thinking about. I also need to clean and rearrange so that I can finally get the tree up this weekend.
In the photo above is a wooden Santa spoon that I bought at a bazaar several years ago. Not that I can paint, but I thought I would give it a go, so I bought the wooden spoons, but they are still sitting in a drawer. That's where most of my projects wind up these days. Tomorrow will be a better day! Wishes for a wonderful week. :) Tammy
