This weekend I decided to start on my Finish Things Crusade. I have UFOs that are the grandprojects of some of my projects. This weekend I happened upon some rabbit bodies (cloth, don't panic) that I know are at least 22 years old. I know this because I vividly recall a conversation with a friend about needing to put faces on and dress the darn things because they had gone unfinished for some time, but that since I had a new baby (she will turn 23 this month), I was having trouble finding the time. Interestingly, I also found the pattern for the bunny clothes last weekend, so maybe the stars are converging for the bunnies. And maybe even stupid chicken before Easter, but that's another story.
Right now I want you to think Halloween. Along with the bunny bodies, I located my pumpkin guy, "Too Much Candy Corn" by Kimberly Whritner. He was all done except for his clothes. Although he was separated from his pattern and fabric, I knew where to find all the pieces, so yesterday I put the finishing touches on him. Finished.
All ready to go into storage with the clearance witch I bought at Tuesday Morning.
Which reminds of what I did to make myself feel better right around that time 22 or so years ago. To make myself feel better, I kept a list of everything I completed, to help me focus on the positive. Of course, it didn't help the still naked bunnies, but it helped me. So here I am again. But now, I use technology. And I have witnesses to put on the pressure.
