One thing life has taught me: if you are interested, you never have to look for new interests. They come to you! When you are genuinely interested in one thing, it will always lead to something else.
Eleanor Roosevelt

I don’t like the length of the list of things I could do craft wise right now. It’s just crazy. Like finishing the felted eggs, sew on the pink quilt, crochet another amigurumi, make a coin purse with the thrifted handle I showed you recently (and again here) or sew a patchwork scarf with the soft fleece fabric? Do anyone else have lists like this floating around inside the brain? It can’t be just me, right?

It’s not a strange thing I don’t get much writing done when these projects are spread around my begging me to “do something”…

Not done yet This is a unusual post for me to write, but I thought I’d give it a try. I’m blogging about the things I haven’t done yet! Usually I show you a finished piece that moving from the pile of UFO’s (unfinished objects) to the FO pile. But then I’ve been looking through this unpacked box from the last move, and it’s filled with materials and projects that I’ve started and then hid away from sight.

I’m not really interested in knitting any of these sweaters (see below) any more, but they are there taking up room, both in my mind and in the box… Maybe I should just finish one of them and not worry? Or frog and sell the yarn? What do you think? I’m not listing all of the things I want to do, have started or want to finish soon here, these are just from the box (!!).

Let’s have a vote? Which projects should I start with? List 2 or 3 in your preferred order and tell me why I should “start to finish” those please!

I need your help!

Cotton yarn on the needles
1. Started knitting this thing in cotton for summer.

Embroidery kit
2. Never used embroidery kit with roses. Love the roses, hate the color on the yarn that came with the kit. I need to see if I could do this with knitting wool in more fun colors and maybe exchange the background color too? I don’t think I want it black. Hm…

Felted sweater
3. Felted red sweater that is super thick and sturdy. I want to sew something with it, maybe a bag but I can’t decide on how to do it.

On the needles
4. Another project “on the needles”. This was started 2006 I think? It’s supposed to become a sweater…

Papermaking stuff
5. An IKEA frame and a plastic canvas that are meant to be put together into a papermaking frame. I so want to make paper but I haven’t yet.

Striped fabric
6. Striped stretch jersey in different colors that I want to make into one or more t-shirts for me! It’s been on my mind since I bought it but I haven’t done it yet either.

The biggest problem
is not that all of these projects take up actual space or that they occupy my brain. The biggest problem is when the list keeps on building it creates stress inside of me and I don’t like that. Sometimes it feels like these little projects (and one thousand other) are calling me with soft but firm voices; Hanna, come spend time with us… don’t be a lazy girl… do you love us? :-) Evil projects huh? And no, it’s not in my brain. They are actually calling me to finish them and they will not let me rest!

Oh and last night in front of the TV I did cast on for a cap I want to knit on circular needles. And I also have a pair of socks, a couple of centimeter of a mitten and one or five other things brewing.

Where would you start? With a coffee right? I think I will have one right now.

May my projects rest in peace until their time does come. Bless ya all!
