So many projects so little time...

I do tend to suffer from attention deficit disorder of the crafting variety.  I will work on a project for awhile and then something appealing will appeal to me either in a magazine, on a blog or at a craft store.  Right now I am currently working on my "Sew for Victory" blouse, a blue prayer shawl and a crochet shrug that needs some final touches. Oh, and I can't forget the very ambitious cross-stitch of The Last Supper that I started on while on bed rest with my last child (he will be 4 years old in May).
Sounds like enough to keep a person busy right?

But that is not all I have on the horizon.  After seeing the fabulous "Date-Maker Sweater" pattern by Columbia on  By Gum By Golly and Va-Voom Vintage blogs, I simply had to put that on my project "to do" list too.  Paton's "Plumb Heather" will make a rich looking sweater.  Oops, I can't forget to add the pillowcases I want to embroider critters from Aneela Hoey's "Little Stitches" book for my son.  As if this was not enough, Gertie of "Gertie's New Blog for Better Sewing", has new spring/summer patterns available.  I just had to have Butterick 5895--it is cute and casual and perfect for summer!  And don't even get me started on all the amazing projects on Ravelry.....



Happy crafting everyone!!
