I have been busy, although not with a lot of crafting. Here is my latest semi-finished objects:
I made a small flock of sheep. I still have to embroider the faces on 4 of them, but they are otherwise complete. I have not been idol; I have been trying to clean and pack. We are moving soon, and preparations must be made. I will link to the pattern that I based these on later. I did not follow the pattern exactly, and when I link to it, I will tell you the modifications I made. I am somewhat saving my crafting for the summer, after we move. My job will change - I will no longer work full time outside the home. I will be homeschooling my children and being their mom full time. It will be a huge change, for me and them, but a good one I think. I will try to post more often, even with small things. There may be less knitting and crocheting, and more embroidery, as I have at least one project that I would like to complete before we move. Oh, and I got my sewing machine serviced, and returned to me! This is very exciting, as I have several sewing projects lined up as well. What are you working on? Do you have big plans for the summer?

I have startitis, or at least that is what I am telling myself. I picked up this magazine this morning.
And now, I have this...
Spring is in the air, and instead of cleaning things out, I am starting new things. I still have not finished my second sock, or my sheep. I think I am gathering projects for the financial drought that I know it coming. Very soon, I will not be able to buy project supplies freely. I know this, and something in me is trying to gather like a squirrel. I have more than enough to keep me busy, yet I insist on buying more. In my defense, it has been a while since I have bought things just for me. I have been buying things for presents and not much else for a couple of years. Maybe this is just the result of that. Or it is a cruel April Fool's joke.
