I've been doing stuff, okay?

I do actually make stuff. I just don't take pictures of it. I'm a busy slacker. Is that possible? Sorry these are all small pictures. I didn't want this post to be huge. If you want to see closeups, go to my Flickr page.

These pillows are for my princess. Big Lots had 3 skein packages of glittery yarn for $1.50. So of course, I got one of each color they had. I still have a white pillow to finish. (Besides finishing these two.) They also had some pink and purple wool (I bought 6 skeins), and a package of 6 black crochet floss cones for $1.50 (score!). Oh yeah, I was happy that day. I'm still perfecting my poor felting skills. Floridians and wool do not get along, okay?

This blanket isn't finished yet either. I have to get more gray yarn for the eyes. I thought I had enough in my stash pile, but nope! It figures. This is for a friend whose due in July. I've got time- HA! Famous last words.

And of course, I've just started a new project! I'm stupid like that... or ADD, take your pick. This is going to be a baby blanket for a little girl due in September. If I follow the pattern, it'll be huge. If I have time (HA!), I might actually make the whole thing, otherwise I'll only make it approximately a yard square, which is my regular size. Yeah, the blue yarn is the same as the preemie blanket. It was on clearance. I did buy 6 skeins of it, and I'm not ashamed to admit it. I may be crafty, but I'm also cheap. I mean thrifty.

OMG, you had me cracking up! You sound so much like me! I have about 5 unfinished different projects that I'm 'working' on. LOL.

Is that my problem? Do I have ADD? I can't just pick one craft, have to crochet, knit, quilt, sew, etc. :)

Ditto with Dee's comment...I dislike having unfinished projects (like the Blythe dress that's cut out and not sewn yet, among others.) "Frugal", I use the word "frugal" but will now add "thrifty"-- I've allowed myself to buy some lovely local merino wool at the farmer's market even though it costs more than I usually pay. Hooray for me. And hooray for you, nice work!
