|9 New Crochet Projects|
There are more fiber art beginnings since January 3rd which was Mom's birthday and the end of the holiday and family gifting occasions strung between late August and early January. I cut myself loose. A reward for finishing 57 fiber art tasks since September 1.
Besides these there were several experiments that didn't pan out, two smallish needlepoint projects and some crochet bookmarks.
It's been fun but I need to settle down soon and put some focus back on finishing things.
If I just finished all the bookmarks on the hook I could maintain last year's motto of finishing more things than I start through the month of January 2015.
Bookmarks used to be a one-sitting project. Once I could crochet over ten of them in a single day. Now I have over a dozen on the hook. Some of them for over two years.
I think what happened is that as I began adding larger projects the bookmarks got classified as 'the portable projects' and don't get attention when I'm at home. They end up languishing in pockets and purses from previous outings and not quick to lay hands on when leaving the house again so I grab a new ball of thread and start a new one for that next car ride or waiting room.
