Tuesday, May 5 thru Wednesday, May 6, 2015
This is the last week that I will have to juggle school with everything else! By this time next week, all of my assignments will have been handed in, and I will have attended my last class. For now, anyway. I haven’t yet decided what I want to be when I grow up, so I’m not sure what I’ll do next. It will all depend on the Benjamins. How much money can I scrape together so I can finish up at a 4-year school? Only the Magic 8 Ball knows!
I brought home all my County Fair items the other night, and they’re still sitting in my car. I don’t know what to do with it all. After the Fair in 2013, I bought 2 frames for my doilies & ribbons, and it’s all sitting on my desk. I get these ideas and then don’t have the ability (or patience) to finish. Now that I have more stuff and more ribbons to frame or display, I guess I’m going to have to learn how to frame things correctly. Great. Another project.
Last month I forgot to show the Dani Beanie that I tested for the designer. It’s a cute and easy pattern, and it can be modified to be slouchier than the way I made it.
Last night I made a really fun Strawberry Coaster to include in a swap. It’s made with crochet thread, but the pattern is so ingenious that it ends up being double-thick. I love the look of the Front Post Double Crochet stitches, too.
I’m working on a cat now. Yes, a cat. I hope to finish it during lunch today.
None of this is Fair stuff, but I do a little bit of work on Fair stuff every day or so. Emphasis on the “or so.” I’m not super excited about any of the items I’m working on, so I get bored quickly with one and then pick up something else. I’ve got to use my organizational skills to formulate a plan so that I can be assured of finishing what I want to make. I do have at least a doily, a shawl, and a doll that I can enter in the State Fair, but of those 3, I think only the doily is State Fair-worthy. I do NOT want to have to make 3 trips downtown…1 to turn in, 1 to pick up what doesn’t place, and 1 to pick up what does. I prefer options 1 and 3. 🙂
