Now I really think that to unfinish should be a word, fail to finish, inability to finish, they're just too lengthy. Unfinished is an actual word, so surely the transformation from adjective to verb must be a legitimate one :) I am a serial unfinisher - I procrastinate in every possible way imaginable as soon as I have something to do. I will stop drying up half way through to take out the rubbish, in the middle of hanging up the washing I'll decide I really need to feed the cats, and so on and so forth. It's really rather a problem sometimes! As soon as I have a deadline of course whatever it is will be done, but without limitation or boundary I procrastinate the day away.
And now I move on to my point.... My crafting habits of late have taken on the characteristics of an unfinisher. I love the fact that I can refer to my unfinished craft projects as 'works in progress' :) I have 3 long-term projects on the go, one of which I really wanted to try and finish before too long but I've realised the finish line is a bit further than I thought. I'm talking about my blanket for Bonnie, our campervan. It's been seeming so big and nearly complete as I sit on the sofa at night, but I took it upstairs to try it on the bed and it looked so.... small!
I don't necessarily want it to be as big as a double bed, but at least wide enough to drape over the bottom during the winter. I've decided I'm just going to use up all of the wool that I have left and see how big it gets, fingers crossed it will be fairly sizeable. But my decision means that it will be a WIP for a wee while longer unfortunately!
My favourite WIP, and one that there is no pressure to finish (maybe making it my favourite...) is my hexagonalong, here are the 31 hexies for January!
And finally for today here's a little card I made for my wonderful Dad, who's a little under the weather at the moment with a chest infection. I hope the cheeky dolphin makes him smile :)
Thank you for the such lovely wishes regarding my unfinished thesis, I really really appreciate all the lovely comments. Having moaned that my life was full of thesis it is now on the back burner again as I've just been offered some temping at the University of Leicester again until next Tuesday. I'm working on the thesis in the evenings and weekends but a little anxious about having so much time away from it. Nevertheless it's a nice change and I enjoy the routine.
Have a lovely week where ever you are
Until next time.....
