I was piddling around my house yesterday as if I had nothing better to do and I realized that I do not know how to relax. I just can't. I am not even sure what the word means. I will sit down at the end of the day and attempt to watch a movie with my movie freak family and I just feel like crawling out of my skin! So I started thinking about what I do when I feel that way. I start a project. Notice I did not say I "work" on a project. No, I START a project. I looked around my living room and gathered all the projects that were laying about in various stages of incompleteness.
I swear these were all in one room. I don't have enough time to gather a whole house full of projects so I am going to work on one room at a time. Oh this is so sad.
Okay this is probably the most embarrassing...it is a YO-YO quilt that I started when I was pregnant with my last baby....She will be 14 next month! BUT I can tell you where every one of those fabric pieces came from...dresses I made for the girls, costumes over the years...so many memories.
This is a beautiful crosstitch I was working on for my sister's wedding gift. 5 YEARS ago. Worse than that....she is already divorced. I swear.
This is a crosstich I started for somebody's special baby. I have no idea who it was for....but I am sure they were my BFF at one time or another.
These are some really cool embroidered ornaments that I can still finish because really, Christmas comes EVERY year!
I HAD to have this book of paper ornaments this past Christmas. Apparently I needed to cover a spot on the floor that did not have a project sitting on it
OH! Okay ,this one is not really my fault. Seriously. I started it for my great nephew, never mind that he is a year old now. Anyway, I started it and was really proud of myself because I taught myself to crochet. but I put it down for a while & now I can't remember how to do it.So see...not my fault.
I am not the only one in my family to have unfinished business. My husband is a very very blessed man. Here is the set-up. We dated young,he had a motorcycle,HOT,it was stolen 15 years ago, he has pined for one ever since. Got it? Brings us to this past father's day...my friend mentions her husband is selling a motorcycle cheap. SOLD! My husband is tickled pink having a great time on his new toy. Fourth day he rides it to work it starts to rain..he decides to pull off into a parking lot..turns on his turn signal..comes to a complete stop..waits a few seconds for oncoming traffic to clear..hears a disturbing squealing of tires behind him..thinks to himself "This is not good"..next thing he remembers was being thrown from the bike, landing on his feet in a full run..turning around and realizing that he had just been rear ended on his motorcycle by a....DUMP TRUCK! A dump truck going 30 miles an hour.In the rain.Driven by a 74 year old man. And walking away from it with only a totaled bike & bruises.
I think it is safe to say that the man I am crazy in love with has some unfinished business to tend to.
