Do not tell me that it’s August at the end of this week… I repeat… DO NOT TELL ME THAT!! Time to update y’all on my marvelous list of summer projects I made, say, oh, in Juneish. First an analogy… so, let’s pretend you’re going on a road trip across the United States, but as soon as you leave the driveway a tire falls off and then when you’re fixing said falled-off tire, the other 3 tires fall off and then when you’re sitting in the middle of the road having a tantrum like a 5-year-old who just got his/her trike kicked in a ditch, a big ole semi who isn’t supposed to be driving on said road anyway runs over you. That basically sums up my progress report! 😛
My first task was such a simple one… when I broke my wrist wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy back on December 26th, I started being lax on my clothes folding/putting away when I got them out of the dryer because it took like 8000000000 more years to fold/hang up said clothing one-handed, so I’d pile them in this rocking chair next to my closet and dig through the pile when I got dressed in the mornings. Quality first. My goal was to declutter my drawers/closet of the clothing I don’t wear anymore and hang up my mountain of rocking chair clothing. UPDATE: Let’s see… yesterday I just piled 2 freshly-cleaned piles on top of the others, so I’d say I’m ahead of the game… if the game was played by an armless/legless giraffe in a baby carriage. You win, Whitney!
Next goal… I wanted to learn how to make a tricot blanket with ruffled edges on it because I’m addicted to tricot and ruffled edges… and also I’m 4. It started out so promising. In June I went to the only place in town that sells tricot fabric and I bought some… I also bought a pattern that would roughly help me out with the ruffled edges. Update: Two months later, I tripped over the bag of tricot fabric sitting on the floor in my room and moved the pattern (still not opened) from my floor to my desk. SCORE ONE FOR THE ARMLESS GIRAFFE!! I’m aiming to have the bag of fabric moved next to the sewing machine by September. And if that’s too much of a goal to muster, at least move it out of my walking path.
Wish me luck… unless there’s something else to do instead… then, by all means… do that. I do.
Question of the Day: Have you made any summer projects/goals? How are yours coming along?
