So I was looking facebook today, and I follow Crochet World. (of course, I'm sure that's no surprise. Crochet peeps are my peeps! LMHO) The post this morning said 'This week's Ask the Editor question: Do you recommend working on more than one project at a time? Michele's answer: Hahahahahaha! I don’t think I’ve ever in my life worked on just one project at a time! My observation of creative people is that they are always working on several things at once. So, if I were to preach what I practice, everyone would work on at least 3 things at any given time.' Man, I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one! (Not that it REALLY mattered, I march to my own little drummer, and dance to the song the voices in my head sing, but that's another post.....) I have so many projects going! The tree skirt is almost done, and as soon as I have a few more bucks, I'm gonna get the red sparkle yarn and gold beads to make mine. The turquoise pillow is done, and my son loved it. The Afghan Squared is done, just need to weave in the last three or four ends. My sister's pillow is coming along, I have made a couple more purses for that craft show, started another pillow for myself in varied shades of pink, and saw and fell in love with the round ripple afghan someone else was making and decided it was a great project for all the leftover balls of yarn rolling around here! Ha! Is that all of them, who knows! But they all get done eventually, I usually finish a couple things every week, so it's all good. And every time I sit down to crochet, I work on whatever I want, so there's no repetitiveness or boredom with one project. I have what, five projects I am actively working on, and about half of them have been started in the last week, after finishing about half of what I was working on last week. Ha! Really, it's pretty typical of me........
How many projects do y'all work on at a time?
On a happy note, the shop where my car is being worked on called this morning. They fixed my car for a measly $400, instead of the $1200 originally estimated. Bless God! They said as old and rickety as Gracie is, she probably doesn't need a new rack & pinion, just keep her full up and she should be okay. I'm grateful. I think I can handle $400.
I alway so tempted to say.... happy hooking, y'all! Today, I think I will. LMHO
I went ahead an added the button (I hope) to this post, since that first picture is of my round ripple afghan, which is a Work In Progress.
