I feel like I've been in an absolute frenzy. I had a good half dozen projects with approaching deadlines and now that I'm finished with a good deal of them I feel a little lost. Adrift. Like I have all the time in the world and maybe I should add a few more projects to my list.
Yes. I thrive on stress, it would seem.
First were the critters. Then there was the heart swap that Linda started (these are what I made if you want a peek: this and this). Then these, a pair of longies for an expecting acquaintance and a hat for a dear friend's mother.
During all the craziness I signed up to test a pattern for the lovely Emily of Yarn Miracle.
My kids love this dog.
I'm still working on the dragon for the Elf's birthday (in five days! ack!). I haven't been able to take pictures of it without making a big deal out of keeping him away. Yesterday I spent two hours at a local yarn store with my step-mother working on one of the wings. Yes, this is a labor of love for this mama who doesn't really know how to crochet.
Also, this hat:
I found the softest alpaca/silk yarn and just couldn't resist. I just finished it today.
So where does that leave me? The dragon, the Imp's birthday gifts (his birthday is late September), birthday gifts for a friend in Michigan (her birthday is in October). I'm sure that I'm forgetting something. But.. I could add a cardigan and several pairs of longies to this list, right? And a few crocheted toys for the kids, right? I mean, who needs down time?
