Last weekend was a nice change from the usual and I had some time on my hands. So I thought I’d better put it to good use. I’ve had a couple of UFO’s (unfinished objects) sitting around for awhile waiting for a couple of finishing touches so I thought I’d better tackle them and gain a sense of accomplishment rather than start on any new projects-which is what I usually do.
It’s something that I always do. Start a project; not finish it; start another project; not finish it; start another project…. See a pattern here? Anyway moving along…
First off the rank was my Sorbetto top, I belatedly posted here, that needed the binding resewn.

can’t see it, but that’s how I like it 🙂

(Ignore the dotty shower cap in
the background – I said Ignore :P)
I tried sewing in my craft room, but because I was sewing black on black I couldn’t see what I was doing. So I moved out to our little sunny balconet and had the job done in 20 minutes. 20 MINUTES-WHY HADN’T I FINISHED THIS OFF EARLIER? Silly!
Anywho, with that project done and under my belt my eyes scanned over to my Tri-Colour Granny Square Throw. Now I’ve been working on this puppy for years. YEARS. Granted it was an on-again-off-again love affair. I had decided not so long ago that I wanted to do a couple more rounds before I finished off. But Then I thought, Naaah :). So I just wove in what loose ends were there and it was ready to go. 5 minutes max. I’ve ravelled this my blanket here.

And that my dears is the tale of how putting things off is silly.
Until next time, I hope you have many projects to keep you occupied unfinished AND finished,
