A bit of progress during a crazy week

Here it is, the start of another week, and hopefully one that is a little calmer than the last week has been. Last week was very busy with conferences and work, so the crafting time was very limited, but at least I was able to get a bit of crafting in.

This week I know that it is going to be busy again, but maybe I will be able to find bits of time to get a bit more crafting in, but I will have to wait and see.

Pandemic - I am continuing to work on this piece and have been enjoying working on getting more of the sections at least outlined. I have had to scroll the frame up a bit more to continue with the sections, and even with all of this outlining that I have done, I still haven't reached the middle of the total piece. I am looking forward to seeing that I have at least got the outline done for half of the piece, but there is still quite a bit of work to go.

Mug Rugs - here is a project that I found a lot of fun to work on this week, and it was knitting a couple of mug rugs out of cotton yarn. I am working on using up some of the cotton yarn that I have, and I have been finding different things that I can make, especially when I only have a part ball of yarn. The mug rugs work up quickly, and they are also something that I can just put in a couple of rows and I see progress.

The mug rugs have been a great project for when I am working, and I am waiting for an answer and I know I have a couple of minutes, so I pick it up and work on it and at least see progress. I will see how many more of these I make as I will continue to see which yarns I have that won't work on a dishcloth but will work great for one of these.

English paper piecing - this last week I was able to sit and work on getting a few more of the large motifs made for the throws. The motifs don't take long to do, but it is just a matter of sitting and working on them.

This is a project that I am going to try and continue to work on as I would like to get all the motifs finished for this throw and then get them all sewn together and that will be the second top of the throws completed out of four.

Other projects - over the last week I didn't have a lot of time to work on other things, but at least I know that I did get a bit of progress on some stuff, which makes me feel good.

I continue to try and find those few minutes each day to do something that makes me happy, and it makes me happy. I hope you are also able to find those bits of time for yourself. I hope that I will be able to have some progress on things next week, but only time will tell. Hopefully you will have a good week and find those bits of time to do something that you love doing.
