Where has February Gone

I have to admit that I sure haven't had a lot of time to craft this month so therefore nothing much to write about. I have finally picked up a cross-stitch and have started working on it. It's approximately 14 inches by 14 inches so it is going to take me a while to complete but have been enjoying working on it for the last week.

I hope to start posting progress pictures of the pattern in the next few days now that I can see I am getting some where on it.

My knitting and crocheting results haven't been very good this month but finally finished sewing together three soap savers this week so feeling a little better about that. I am not going to be too happy tomorrow when I sit down and see if I have met any of my monthly goals this month. I shouldn't be too upset as I have been able to spend some quality time with my husband this month.

Now it's time to turn off the computer for the evening as finally go to bed.

Not much to say

This past week I really don't have a lot to say about. I haven't been getting things accomplished and part of that was because I was busy doing other things and not stitching. Oh, I did finish one scarf so that is something.

I am going to spend the next week working on some baby sweaters for one of the charities that I help out. I figure I have spent quite a bit of the last couple of months working on items for the troops so that will be a change for me. I have pulled out an old part for one of the sweaters so it is fun working on it again. the other sweater is a hexagon baby sweater and considering that is basically one like granny squares it isn't too hard to work on.

Now to actually get working on these two sweaters so that by the end of the week I have something to show for my week.

Finally completing projects

I guess I just needed a day to sit and start sewing things together. Today I finally decided to sit down and work on finishing some of the projects that I knit in January. I am slowing making progress which is making me feel a little better. I think I still need a couple more days like this to get everything sewn together but at least I have started.

I am hoping that by the end of this week I will have a lot of the projects sewn together that I have started. As I said at the end of last month this month should be a good month for getting things onto the completed list.

Today I was also able to get some crocheting done on a baby afghan that I have had on the go for a while. It isn't going as fast as I would like but at least a few rows at a time will help. If I can get this baby afghan completed soon it will make me feel good as I think I have had it on the go for about four months now.

I am hoping that this week I can start working on a baby sweater using granny squares. This pattern is one that I used a few years ago and last week I found it again in a book what I looked at while visiting my parents. Now if I can see how it looks using a little different yarn I may end up making more of them but that will have to wait.

Now to get back to sewing things together so that I can get a few bags emptied so that I can start filling them up again but next time I won't fill them as full before sewing things together.
