Getting Ready For the New Year, Wrapping Up Loose Ends

I am this close to have a ton of projects completed. Along with everything that I got going, I am also trying to redesign the site. I want a new logo and look. The Kid is helping.

A quick couple of projects that I did complete:

First one up is a cross stitch that I had been working on during my “in between” projects time. You know, when paint is drying or waiting for something to be picked up. During those times I plunk myself down on the couch and squeeze in a little ‘me time’. I am just like my Dad, in that I can’t just sit and watch television. I have to be doing something with my hands, so I do cross stitch and embroider or making felt ornaments with a blanket stitch.

Here’s the first one. I did actually finished this a bit back, but it took a while the whole project done. You see it was intended to be a iPad case, but after adding the backing and the lining, the size got a little squeezed. So it is more of a ‘mini iPad’ case. But it was fun to do because I didn’t really have to think about it too much, color was totally random and it is a pretty simple pattern.

I have been thinking about getting it framed and sending it to the authors, just for fun. I mean, I love the work and the creative part of it, but what do you do with them once you’re done?

I have a ton more projects to finish up and then get documented. I also have to list them for sale as well. Hopefully three of the pieces are claimed by the people that they were intended for when I started them. That will really help clean up the garage and the foyer. And provide a little more cash for the next projects! Ha!

Okay, gotta hit the sheets! I am wiped out!
