WIP Wednesday- Feeling a little ADHD

I have a fair amount of projects going on around here!

A month ago, I spent a week painting our mudroom and basement steps, kitchen and dining room, and living room and hallway. I still have all of the supplies in my Crap er Craft room since I need to do the second coat on one wall in the living room and the whole hallway.

I am finishing up a second (maybe fourth, but this will be my second on hand) Island Play Mat.

I have the Wonder Woman Shawl in progress… but am worried I will run out of yarn and not be able to match dye lots. I also decided this one will be a birthday gift for A. With those two things in mind, I think I’m going to rip back and restart in the slightly smaller size.

I also have all of my fabric washed and supplies on hand for a Weighted Blanket I’ve been commissioned to make as a birthday gift for one of N’s gymnastics friends. I don’t think this will take me long, I just need to finish some other stuff and find my room back!

What projects do you have lingering?

Where I’m at Wednesday

Yesterday was a snow-day and I only had my niece for daycare kids. As lay awake before 5am, wondering if there was going to be school, I started to think about all of the things I could finish and check off my list.

Turns out my kids all played wonderfully, but my niece was a handful (18 months old, who would have guessed she’d be a handful?). When there is a house full of other kids, she is distracted and I can SOMETIMES get something accomplished. Not yesterday!

To top it off, I spent nap time blowing off a layer of snow before more heavy stuff came down and he winds picked up. All in all, the weather was not as bad as expected.

I did manage to make a little progress on a few different projects though!

I took apart the seams on my moms poncho so I can close up the neck a bit.

I finished the last couple pieces of Chameleon. Now to see him together!

Edged 1 of 3 receiving blankets.

Finally- I cut out all of he letters for the banner I was asked to make for A’s school music program. Maybe today the glue gun will make an appearance!

Ok- I guess I really did get a fair amount done (even if I did all of that over 16hours)

What projects are you trying to finish? Did you get snow yesterday too? How many of you are ready for spring?
