First day of the holidays.
I have 2 new knitting patterns I want to make, a commissioned mobile phone sleeve to knit, a quilt top I really need to get cracking with for my niece and another couple of quilt tops I want to start sewing. Plus the house work. There’s also some walls and ceilings that need painting, along with some heavy duty weeding in the front yard.
But there are a couple of projects that are near completion. This knitted rug has been almost finished since the first craft camp. It took months to knit, it kept me sane when I was going through a dreadful time of worry and even though it’s as garish as all get out I really should respect all the time and effort (and $$) I’ve already put into it and finish it. Just need to go around the outside with black and get some rubbery splurge stuff from Spotlight for the underside so it doesn’t slip and then I’ll be done.
Plus… and here’s where the Skinflint stuff comes into it… it takes an hour and a half each side… that’s 6 hours where I’m being frugal and using up what I’ve already got and I’m not out spending time and money on anything else.
Besides, it’s a hell of a lot cheaper than getting the floor by the back door resanded!
