WIP it - slow restart


This weekend I had planned to get a lot of work done on my 100 Day Hustle list. Always with the good intentions. And then this happened:

I mentioned it on my to do list on Monday. I keep thinking a squirrel is going to jump out and on to my shoulder. I'd be cool with that as long as he doesn't bite me and lets me take his picture. As of today, maintenance has been in ONCE to look at the hole, but has not said anything about when they plan to fix it.

With all the other things that have happened in this building (a murder, a bat, loud neighbors, smoking neighbors, drinking neighbors and drug deals) I've decided that I'm going to make a better effort to find a new place of residence and that any money made this month is going into a moving fund. Moving is more important than a new sewing machine. With that said, this beauty was just listed on etsy today. I'd love to make and list more of them, but my yarn stash is hurting at the moment. I do have enough for a couple more though, a creme and maybe a striped one coming soon.

Now let's get on with my WIPs.

  • burgandy cowl
  • brown bear hat (sold)
  • zipper wallets
  • card holders for aunt

in progress:
  • greeting cards for aunt
  • creme cowl
no progress:
  • sewing machine cover
  • Lucy - Lucy's Crab Shack quilt
  • BQA
  • bow ties
  • Bernadette - granny square quilt
  • Sally - simpatico fabric
With the holidays coming up quick, we are about to start getting busier at work so I'll probably be working more again. I'm not sure what's going to happen to my sewing and creating time, but I'm not really looking forward to it. It's what helps to keep me sane.

Lovely finishes. I really like the color of the cowl.

Such sweet finishes! Thanks for linking up to wip Wednesday where I've had the pleasure of guest-hosting this week!

That cowl looks so warm and fabulous! Good luck with finding a new place -- it doesn't sound like a new machine would be safe there anyway -- yikes, poor you! :)

First of all - yikes! Second - your finishes look great! I like your cowls more every time I see them.
