The completion of the crazy quilt block gave me an opportunity to change my evening activity. Of course, I had promised myself that I would get back to the rug hooking, but there are other things I also want to do and/or need to do.
So here's a list:
- Rug hooking - complete Autumn Perch
- Crazy Quilting - start Spring block
- Knitting - Start one of many knitting projects
- oops, sew the pockets on the shawl before I can claim it finished
- Wool work on the log cabin table runner
At least that's all that comes to mind right now (there are probably more).
Anyway, I've hit on a scheme that may work. Or not. At least it's a plan.
Last night I worked on rug hooking. At this point I'm working on the night sky around the moon. Since I'm trying to add the rays of light against the deep sky, it's all an experiment which may or may not be successful. Only time will tell.
The spring block has still to be cut out and then assembled before the "interesting" stitching can begin. The base is ready, the materials for each piece chosen, and I'm eager to start.
Tonight I started a knitting project. It's a relatively easy project which is why I chose it. First I thought it might do as a travel project, but I decided to drop that since knitting tools aren't always viewed enthusiastically on airplanes. That may mean that I'll put it aside and pick up a knitting project that was started last year and put aside as problems arose. The two I"m thinking about won't be too dreadful to fix, but they will take both time and close attention.
Today I cut out two wool leaf shapes that I plan to embroider, but then I thought it might be smarter if I hadn't cut them out. Embroidering the wool while it's a larger piece would be both easier and the wool would have less of a chance of ravelling.
So there it is. Alternating among the projects has the advantage of keeping my interest keen, but it also might hinder concentrated, consistent work. It also may not work if I find interest waning in one or more of the projects.
Time will tell.
