I finally finshed my first project of the year. It's been collecting dust since Christmas. A plain boring scarf that will be donated to charity later this year.

That doesn't look like a plain and boring scarf, it looks like a soft & fluffy scarf to me  Cheesy

Someone will love getting that scarf!  And the Star Wars droids are fun.

I love that Star Wars art! So much so that I immediately pinned it. And all three of my kids crowded up to my monitor to see - it's kid approved!

I have severe craft ADD at the moment. I started a scarf that I didn't like, so 4 motifs in I made it into a fingerless mitt. And I've finished the 4 motifs for the matching mitt, but not done the back of it. But I also have a head for a PSY ami (as in Oppa Gangnam Style), half a bat dishcloth, and four tiny random paper notebooks, which have been bound "glue spine" style, (like a paperback, not sewn like a hardback) but that don't have covers on them. All this has been started since the start of the year.

Perhaps my subconcious has taken this month's challenge the wrong way, and is creating WIPs, instead of finishing them. I sit done to craft, and just aren't in the mood to work on anything that's going, because I keep finding all these cool other things to make, which I'd much rather be working on, so I start one of them... and then repeat.

I need to do some projects that I can finish in one sitting, then at least I'll have something to share in thread.

I know how you feel, SilverMoon! I'm doing rather well tonight though, I managed to finish 2 WIPs! The fact that the recipient of one of them is coming over tomorrow didn't influence this at all, or the WIP that I'll finish tomorrow that's coming over on Sunday...  Roll Eyes I work best with deadlines!

Anyway, here are my two FO's from tonight (both started in 2012!)
     ---> and their thread

This one just needed the ends woven in

These had about half of one glove left

Now back to spinning for me!

Whew, took a little time to get this uploaded but I made an etched glass with a quote from my favorite movie A Clockwork Orange. It says "Viddy well little brother, viddy well" but it's hard to photograph etchings

Thanks for all the compliements on the starwars painting everyone!  It was really fun to do and perfect for our kiddo.  I will admit though-as much of a geek as I am, I have never liked Starwars. Roll Eyes

SilverMoon, I totally can relate to starting a project, then seeing another thing i want to make and start on it, then see another project and start making it.  And bamm!  10 projects started and none finished.  This year-Im really trying to start a project(okay, maybe two projects) and not start any more projects until those are finished.  I seriously think its ADD at times as I have been known to have so many WIPS.  I just could not focus on one project.  I blame Craftster, theres just so many awesome crafty things to make here!  Now, theres Pinterest.....Oh mercy!  This year though-this 50 projects in 2013 is really helping me stay focused on a project.  Course, we wont count the fingerless mitts for my sister....I started one, then started on the second....ah, i accidently was doing another left glove, ripped it out, knit it to the end, the thumb gusset was in the wrong spot, ripped it out, redid it, then finished and realized i must of skipped a cable because its one cable shorter then the left!  ARG!  The instructions for the right glove werent very good-it said repeat as with the left, and it just wouldnt work because the cables have to be on top of each glove!  So, yeah, thats one wip that im setting aside.

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.
