Fall Reflections

I’ve been in a weird spot lately. Not bad, just weird. It’s that time of year to figure out my handmade holiday gifts, and I’ve had to take an inventory of where I am in my goals for the year to figure out what’s feasible for me with my remaining time. My MakeNine2022, Year of […]

Hello, 2022!

Took a bit longer of a break than expected, but I think it will be well worth it! Got some great ideas and goals for this new year. But first, let’s start with the old. I won’t prattle on again about how the year made me feel, but I am going to cover what I […]

WIP Challenge: October Update

This isn’t a huge update, but I know that shocks no one. While I haven’t been finishing a lot of projects lately, I’m not starting a lot of new ones, either. Good and bad, so I’ll take it. Current WIP Count: 49. No change from my last update. Queue Projects: 10, still no change here. Squirrel Projects: 13, […]

WIP Challenge: September Update

Bet you thought I was done with this! Emotionally, I kind of am, but dang it, I said a year and I’m seeing it through, for better or worse. It helps that I’m really tackling my WIP spreadsheet; way less daunting when Google counts for me! Current WIP Count: 49. So, I’m up three from our […]

WIP Challenge: July Update

I am still struggling with this. It’s not even that I’m not working on old WIPs. I worked steadily on two really old WIPs last weekend, but I’m not finishing anything still… Current WIP Count: 46, same as last four months… It would be up one, but I didn’t get around to casting on my new […]

WIP Challenge: May Update

It didn’t go as bad as I hoped! If I had had another 24 hours, I would have two less WIPs, I’m sure of it. Me Made May didn’t even throw me off that much. It just upped the Squirrel count considerably, but I did say if that was all that happened, I was a […]

WIP Challenge: April Update

Y’all… it’s not good… and with Me Made May this month, it probably isn’t going to get that much better! I did finish the “Easter” shawl, at least! One very pre-2021 WIP finished makes me feel good. There were only two new projects started this month, too, but both were Shiny Object projects… I cast […]

WIP Challenge: March Update

I am so proud! Even after all my new cast-ons this month, I still managed to bring the WIP count down! It’s only by one, but hey, that’s down! I did have one finish from the pre-2021 list, and funny enough, I didn’t even start it. A friend of mine has a grandmother who was […]

WIP Challenge: February Update

I’m feeling a lot better about this challenge now. The shoot is done, and I’m looking forward to telling you all about that later. I’m finishing up gifts for (very understanding) family and friends that got pushed back because of the shoot, and I’ve made progress on some really old WIPs, like the Easter Shawl. […]
