I hope to be able to get to at least 50% completed on this piece before the end of this week as I am currently at 32.70% done. Just seeing that I can make some progress on it would make me feel so much better.
Other projects - this past week I wasn't able to find time to work on any other projects so will see how this week goes. I know that I have a lot of things that I would like to work on this week so I will see just what happens.
I hope you have been able to continue to find that bit of time for yourself each day no matter what it is. I found this past week sitting and doing a bit of journaling is what made me happy so that is what I did. This week, my goal is to try and find those bits of time again to move some of my crafting forward.
Next week I hope to have some progress to show you on at least a couple of projects. Have a good week and remember to find that time for yourself each day.

One thing that I can say is that I was happy that I had some projects that I could work on. Just seeing that I got something done makes me feel a little better.
Baby sets - this past week when I had the time to work on something I was working on getting some sets completed.
I have figured out some of the other yarn that I am going to be using to make these sets and I think I will be busy for a while getting these sets completed. Not currently sure what I am going to be doing with these sets when they are completed but I know that I will probably find a place that can use them.
It feels great seeing some progress on the small things and now to see if I can continue to get more items worked on this week. Hopefully I can get back to seeing progress on a few things before the end of the week.
Other crafts - I can honestly say that I haven't worked on my cross stitch for a week now. If things go well today, I hope that I can start to work on it again as I have missed working on it. Now to see how this week goes as I know that we are busy again with a few things so will have to see what I can get done.
I hope that you have been able to find that time each day to do something for yourself. Recharging your personal batteries is very important as it makes it so much easier to deal with everything else that is going on around you.
Have a good week and I hope that I can show you some progress on at least a couple of things next week.

I am happy that I have been able to find a bit of time each day to get something moved forward even if I haven't bee able to see a lot of progress on things. Hopefully once things slow down a little, I will get back into a routine and I will start to see more progress on the various projects again.
Florence Law - here is the piece that has been my focus. I was loving working on it and I made sure that I was able to find the time where I could just sit and work on it.
My goal was to get this piece finished and early this past week I was able to put the last stitches in on her. It was a lot of fun working on this piece and of course, I am enjoying working on the various red samplers.
I still have quite a few red samplers to work on but after finishing this piece I decided to work on a different colour sampler so of course there was a new start.
Elizabeth Garrod - this piece has been one that I have wanted to start for the last couple of months but I wanted until I had Florence Law completed before I put the first stitches in on this piece.
These are items that don't take me too long to complete so it is nice to have something that works up quickly and I can see them done. Hopefully I will be able to get the ties done for the mittens this week and then the hat for the green set.
Other projects - I haven't been working on a lot of other things and part of that is because I haven't had a lot of time to focus on things. I have enjoyed being able to pickup the projects that I have been doing as it makes me happy to see some progress on something.
I hope everyone is continuing to find that little bit of time each day to recharge your own personal battery. It might only be 10 or 15 minutes but at least that bit of time helps you focus and have the energy to help those around you.
Have a good week and I hope to have a bit of progress on something this coming week. It might not be a lot of progress, but I will just have to wait and see.

Here it is the start of another week and yes a week where I have lots of things that I would like to accomplish. It is going to be a busy week for me so will see what crafting I can get done. This last week I did spend some time crafting and am happy with the progress that I made on the various projects. I did end up working on more projects than I thought I would, but it still means that I made progress.
This past week I decided that instead of working on bits of each of the rows that I was going to try and work on getting more of the rows completed. It has been interesting watching this piece come to life. It started out slowly and now I am finally starting to see the areas of the design getting done. It would be nice to get this piece completed so that I can frame it, but I am going to miss working on it.
I know that I have projects that I could be working on so many one of those will come out for a while and maybe get some attention. Besides all the projects that I would pull out I am also thinking that I may have a new start soon and it will probably be another sampler but this time it won't be red.
Diagonal Garter Shawl - this piece wasn't going to be worked on very much this week, but it came out a couple of times. Yes, I did have a webinar that I was watching so it came out that day and it came out again another day when I just needed something simple to work on.
This week I think this project will get a bit more attention but will have to see how much more of it I get done. It would be nice to get to the end of the increase section as then I will be working on the main section which is what takes the longest to do. I guess, I will just see how things go this week and if I can get all the increases done or not.
Wedding Shawl - this piece was once again the main focus of the 30 minutes of knitting most days. I did miss a couple of days this week but given everything else I am happy with the progress that I made on this piece. The piece now measures 39 inches and I think I am going to make this shawl 60 inches long, so I am getting closer to a finish which makes me feel good.
If I measured things right and also counted correctly, I think I have around 14 more patterns to go on the piece before it is finished. Not sure how long that is going to take me to finish but being able to see it done would make me happy. This should be the focus piece for most of the week but will just have to see how things go.
I hope everyone is finding that bit of time each day to do something for yourself and recharge your personal batteries. Being able to find that bit of time each day for yourself does help so much as it means we have the energy to help other around us as well as being able to get things done that we want to get done.
