I have the problem of being interested in waaaaay too many creative endeavors. It can get expensive quickly and I’m always working on a dozen things so nothing gets finished up.
I have a number of works in progress that need to be finished by the end of the month, most of which use a different creative process- all of which are requiring some form of learning curve.
Here’s the list of things that MUST be done by the end of March…
1. Present for a sweet friend
For this one I’m learning how to hand letter different things. I’ve never had good handwriting and this has been a challenge. But a lot of fun. My go-to for learning this has been YouTube tutorials like this one by MadeByMarzipan. The SakuraColorProductions channel also had a lot of great tips. This isn’t an art form I’ll probably ever excel at, but it’s fun to learn and I do use the skills a little for our bible verse chalk board.
2. Speaking of the Chalk Board…
Every month our church has the children and adults learn the same scripture passage. I like to put portions of it up on the chalkboard in our dining room. Unfortunately, I haven’t gotten around to updating it recently so I’m excited to add part of Psalm 119 to it this month.
Forever, O Lord, you word is firmly fixed in the heavens
3. Hand Quilting
I’m working on a quilt for one of my dearest friends. This particular one I am hand quilting for the first time and I’ve fallen in love with it. Hand quilting will definitely be a life long craft. I LOVE it. I liked the fabrics so much that I got some more, with a few extra ones to add more blue, to make a quilt (NOT hand quilted due to time constraints) for a friend whose baby is due in March. I probably won’t finish the hand quilting one, but will definitely hope to mail the other one by the end of the month.
4. The bunnies…
Still finishing up the clothes for the bunnies from last week’s Make it Monday, but I’m nearly done. I am taking dinner to the family on Friday and hope to have the bunnies wrapped and ready for the girls then.
5. A Springtime Wreath
I love to decorate my house, which means always having a seasonal wreath on the door. The only season I didn’t have something for was spring, so I’m in the process of making a yarn-wrapped wreath with burlap flowers. It’s easy and fun… and mindless so I can do it when I’m exhausted.
That’s what’s on the docket for this week’s Make It Monday… a long line of projects to finish up! :)
What projects do you have lurking in the basket, waiting to be finished?
