Oh The Shame Of It

Oh dear. I had what seemed like a really good idea this morning and that was to get out all of my UFO's (unfinished projects) to see just what I had 'on the go' and what could possibly be finished off and put to use. That good idea turned into the show of shame when I realised I have just under 30 things lurking in my craft box and wardrobe in varying stages of completion.


 Goth Doll #1 which I'm knitting for a friend.....



 ....Goth Doll #2 which is for me....



....my assorted squares blanket....



....a commissioned blanket.....



 ...wool and pattern to knit mice....



......circular crochet cushion # 1....



......circular crochet cushion #2....



....err another cushion!



Assorted squares to be made into something though gawd knows what - a scarf maybe?!


 ....tiny squares - again don't know what they're going to be....



.....another granny blanket....



 .....a vintage patchwork piece I inherited which is older than me and apparently made by Nun's!!! This needs to be made into something special I think....



3 cross stitches - 1 was started by my Mum over 15 years ago and I need to finish it, and a Stars and Stripes apron that needs sewing up....



...wool I bought in St Ives but can't decide on what to make with it.....



..... 4 festival/gig t-shirts that need customising a year on....



......king size patchwork quilt I started in 1995 to take my mind off being shacked up with an alcoholic. It just needs backing but guess which twerp sold her sewing machine!!!?



Several years worth of patchwork and bunting fabric ( I have a fabric fetish)....



Tie dye fabric I bought in Lancaster 2 years ago to make ankle skimming skirts with - except now I don't wear long skirts anymore....



......more patchwork and bunting fabric....


......dog fabric that my Mum was going to make into a waistcoat for me......


.....VW Beetle fabric which I intend on making into bunting for my 'not yet purchased but desperately wanted' VW T25 campervan...



.......batik fabric I bought to make into curtains for the motorhome but which will now make curtains for my campervan (see above)....


.......and finally......Mohair I got at a bear fair to cover the tatty bear (Scruff) I have had since I was a baby.

Blimey. I'm out of breath now. I think I need to set myself some targets to get this lot finished. I'm hoping to join another craft group which meets in the village pub twice a month so that may just spur me on.
