Work in Progress Wednesday – January 26

by Decemberbaby

Wow, it’s Wednesday again? Already?

I must say, being accountable to my readers definitely helped me this week. What I really wanted to do, of course, was reorganize the spare room into a quiet reading room… which I did, sort of. But I couldn’t report back to you all and say that I didn’t finish what I said I would, right? So I abandoned the reading room for now, and finished the baby blanket. Thanks for keeping me honest.

And now, what you all came here to see…

Completed: Baby Blanket

This one took me about two hours. I’m obviously getting lazy – I used to applique the kid’s entire name, but these days I prefer to do one large initial. Anyhow, the turtle fabric is a jersey knit (t-shirt material) and the other side is something deliciously cuddly. Here it is, all folded up and getting ready to be gift-wrapped:

In Progress: the reading room

I don’t have a “before” picture, and I’m feeling too tired and lazy to take an “in progress” picture. But by next Wednesday, I plan to have done the following:

  1. put the slipcover back on the sofabed
  2. mounted a wall light in K’s reading corner
  3. backed up my old iMac and prepared it for use by K
  4. found, built, or adjusted a chair to the correct height for the kiddie table

That’s it. I’ll have pics for next week, I promise. And after that I’m going on vacation, so you can expect my works-in-progress to be more along the lines of portable projects – scrapbooking, perhaps, or writing some new songs (I haven’t done any songwriting in years), or maybe some garden planning.

  1. Nice! Just the initial on the blanket is very classy – plus, it gives the family the option to reuse the same first letter for their next kid, just so they can use the blankie again. “These are our kids: Esti, Eli and Edgar – no, we didn’t particularly love the name, we just had to think of another ‘E.'”

    (if you get super-lazy, just use the last-name initial: “this gender-neutral ‘M’ blanket is for the current and any future MacLeods!”)
