Wow.... so, the last time I posted to this thread was about a year ago. I don't think I finished a single project on my list to date (and I don't even remember what that list was), so I'm starting anew. Gah! I'm so angry at myself.  Angry Anywho... here goes:

1. Jewelry box tin (need to start over cause the last one broke)
2. Get mom to teach me some embroidery basics to get me going on a few things
3. Book cover purse (need to buy fabric and sew in the sides and handle)
4. Do something with the left over fabric from the yoga bag mom & I made (no idea what, though)
5. Post pics of old projects that I haven't gotten around to putting up

I think that'll do for now. I'm starting a new job soon, so I don't wanna overload myself with projects just to be disappointed when I don't finish em.


EDIT- I'm adding:

6. Cozies with Irony Contest entry waaaay past due date
7. Clock revamp I started today
8. Some felt projects, including a poppet for my friend  Done: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=262007.msg2937662#msg2937662


Will post when finished! (I'm particularly excited about my clock project Cheesy )

Man! Is this necessary for me or what...I have a small army of things needing to be done, and done fairly soon...

By tomorrow:

Cut out and stitch together sides of a deacon's stole and ready it for embroidery.

All by 11/29...

Two - veils for church (ciboria and chalice) - Cut out and pinned together!
One - runner for our table in the narthax (sp?)
Two - (left from three) maniples (mini arm stole thingy) Done!
Two - stoles for our new deacon
One - finishing of a purse... (I found it last night and so close to done it isn't funny... )


Not to mention all the christmas stuff I want to do...

And then my March 20th at the very latest:

One - bishop's cope!


I'll add more to my list as they come. One day I'll get to add stuff to do for myself and not just my church.



Thanks for starting this kind of topic!

This list really helped me get a bit motivated, so I just want to say that humblestumble...you rock!

Just an update...I guess for my own piece of mind. But this list has helped me get going...so yeah. I want to continue to post on it, if at least just for me.

I'll be posting a new and updated list of projects here in the next day or three.

I definitely belong in Procrastination station:

-duct tape dummy

-swap item to trade for a swap journal (April 14th)
-crochet hook roll (April 9th) (last three are swap package, btw)
-crocheted ice  cream cone
-toddler shorts
-one tiny crocheted thing
-cloth book
-bunch of beaded barrettes
-toddler outfit
- baby car thingy (June 2nd)
- baby sling
-crochet blanket
-toddler pajamas (1 set done)
-2 shirts
-polymer clay for swap (October 15th)
-DD's halloween costume (Organization 13 robe)
-DS's halloween costume (tree frog)
-chocolate swap stuff
-blanket (October 25th)
- knitting project (june 14)
- polymer clay mirror
- placemats
- turquoise coat for sugaree (swap)
- chain smoking necklace for swap
- workout pants
- jacket for DD
- costume for DD (Vampire Knight day class)
- puppets
- birthday banner
- paper pieced angel pillow cover
- pajamas for my mother
- Knitty's antifreeze for DS

Bumping my list to the end.  Here's a couple more things for the list too:

- insulated window covers for the bathroom and DD's bedroom
- 2 dresses for church
- knitted or crocheted sweater for summer (lightweight, lacy)
- long sleeved shirt for DD Actually didn't turn out to be long sleeved, but I used the fabric, so it counts, right?

That second set of toddler pj's still needs doing, and I have fabric for a third set that I suspect I should just give up on.  I hate doing multiples of a project. The first one is fun (and occasionally challenging). The second one's mind numbing.  I'm beginning to understand why I don't excel at drawing or sculpting. Too much practice.   Roll Eyes

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

My list is very long.  Along with being a procrastinator, I am also an artist who is afraid to finish anything.  (Especially things I have made specifically for someone else, in case they don't like or will never display or use what I've created.)  It's very silly.
 Shocked
The Top Three
-Album Cover Art (a painting for a friend's band)
-SackBoy Amigurumi (a belated Christmas gift)
-4 Canvas Guitar Muse Art (a marker/paint collage)


The Rest
-Spray paint the metal pipes for curtain rods
-Repaint the bathroom w/ dolphin
-Carve and stain 3 wood/gem rings for the sisters
-Carve and stain 1 wood/gem cuff for best friend
-Carve and stain wood/gem piece for mom's purse
-Finish painting white pleather belt for best friend
-Spray paint plastic dressing table organizer
-Finish decorating and clearcoat the sister's bike
-Buff and clearcoat my bike
-Redecorate the boyfriend's BMX bike
-Stain legs and attach to table top (for craft room)
-Deconstruct particle board bookshelf to make solo shelves
-Sand and stain wire roll for bike worktable
-Sew / stuff all old t-shirts into a giant blanket
-Create beaded glass tabletop wall art (heavy!)
-Create mirror portrait collage for the long-distance best friend
-Finish 3 snobs art (for comic book cover)
-Finish greed art (for comic book cover)
-Finish (and mail) concept art for library dream/story
-Crochet fingerless gloves w/ mitten flap
-Beer Can Room Divider (look at Ready Made book for the other materials)
-Spray paint and label closet organizers


Clothing Fixes:
-Hem all work pants
-Fix ripped seams on 3 dress skirts
-Replace zipper on wool skirt
-Tailor dress shirts to fit correctly
-Dye pink pajamas (Thanks, Mom.  I love you but I don't care for pink.)
-Finish edges of grey scarf for the boyfriend
-Stencil Apatosaurus t-shirt
-Stencil SpaghettiO's t-shirt
-Stitch Queen patch on denim jacket

I am certain there is more, however - I am now feeling sufficiently guilty and simultaneously inspired to work on something.


I made some sweet jewelry for the FOCR4 Swap but I want the receiver to post pics (since my photography skills aren't that great).
I will also post photos of my closet boxes and the Great February Fuzzbuster cleaning spree I'm conducting this week.
