Projects...this year and next
Of the five major indoor projects I wanted us to complete this year, only two were done - the wall of shutters and the wall of bookcase in my new room. The others, re-doing our bedroom, re-doing Randy's home office/workroom and replacing the sliding glass patio door with a wall and regular doors have been moved to the list for next year.....again.
Then there are the outdoor projects, replacing some of the eaves where the squirrels chewed thru to get into the attic, paint the house, make paths in the back yard and start re-doing the front yard. None of which were done mainly because neither of us wanted to work in the gosh awful heat we had.
My personal project was knitting ponchos and scarves for the women and girls at the local women's shelter. I have a dozen of each ready to be delivered next week and will make more off and on during the year for new comers they have. I really enjoyed making them, choosing the colors and patterns....it is just terrible that they are needed under those circumstances.
Next years project for me is to concentrate more on painting or pretending I know how anyway. That includes the inside of the kitchen cabinets and the doors to the linen closet/laundry hamper in the hallway and maybe even the bedroom doors. Who knows how obsessed I will become once I get started.
I have always had so many things I wanted to try my hand at that either I never got around to most of them or I dabbled in each one and never got really good at any of them. Quilting and knitting are the only ones I have spent any length of time perfecting in anyway. I really have to rethink things. I have accumulated the supplies for so many ideas that have been sitting in baskets, boxes or jars on my shelves waiting for me to get around to doing them that I am beginning to feel pretty stressed when I go into my craft room, therefore I do not go into my craft room because of the stress, hence nothing gets done.
Between now and the new year I really have to go thru my assorted supplies and fearlessly weed out things.
Just hope I have the courage to actually do that.

Good luck toni my door is closed on lots of things I don't wont to see right now :) but like you I must
Goodness, Toni, you are one busy lady. And have lots more to keep you even busier.
I have also accumulated things that are not being used. Isn't it amazing how much builds up when you aren't looking. Dooley
It sounds like you have been looking into my craft room. One of these days I will sort thngs out in there. Of course with me it seems that "one of these days" is always tomorrow and never today.
I feel your pain Toni. My craft room is my bedroom. There is only a path through it and be careful are you will stub your toe. I haven't been doing anything either, bc it is too depressing to look at the mess. Oh well, one day.
If half the stuff on a "to do" list gets done it's a victory. Don't throw that craft stuff away. As soon as you do you will have a use for it. I promised myself to clean up my craft room this week-what a chore!
Oh Toni I know what you mean!! I must join all the other ladies here and say my craft supplies are the same way!! I have half finished projects everywhere!! With my oldest son moving back home and taking my
