8 Years of Unfinished Projects and an experiment with video!

Each Wednesday, I post a snapshot of the projects I’m working on, and where my brain is at.

Firstly, I hope that you had, or are having a wonderful winter holiday (or at the very least surviving).

Secondly, It seems that Thursday is the new Wednesday around here!

Last week I borked my website, and this week I got the very bright, very last minute idea to experiment with video… so, the post that usually takes me an hour and a half to photograph, write, edit, review, and post each week, took me a day and a half.

It started when I decided to find and document all of the unfinished projects I have, because the end of the year seems like a good time for it. It turns out that I have quite a few projects hanging about, some of which stretch back 8 years or so.

The post I was mentally compiling was getting overwhelming – hence the video…

So here it is, I hope you enjoy!

(If you receive these posts via email, you may need to click through to play the video. Here’s the direct link.)

If you enjoyed and want to see more video in the future let me know! Either hit like, or leave a comment.

It was tons of fun, if a little more time consuming than expected.

And I highly doubt I’ll ever abandon the written word entirely, but maybe mixing things up?

Hit like, or leave a comment below with your thoughts.


Tomorrow I’m writing about my finished Banaue Breeze sweater (in words and photos). That will probably be the final post of 2016 (and definitely the finial finished object of the year) so be sure to come back for that tomorrow.


And I’ll leave you with the links to a handful of the patterns I mentioned in the video:

Lady Bat by Teresa Gregorio aka CanaryKnits
By Hand London’s Anna Dress Pattern
My Self-Made Wardrobe Project
The Shawl Geometry Book Series

Did I miss anything?

    It’s so nice to know that I’m not the only person with a bunch of UFOs (that probably don’t have notes on where I left off)! I have spent the last couple days doing some routine mending as a way to finish the year and clear out my work space. My next task is to label some baby quilts and then get them shipped off to the babies (the shipping part is always the sticking point for me).

    Your video has inspired me to update my UFO (& Not Even STarted Yet (NESTY) ) list, and work on the projects!

      Good company makes the UFO pile sting a little less doesn’t it? (And I didn’t even try to get into project I’ve planned but haven’t started!)

      Good luck finishing up the last couple projects of the year & updating your UFO & NESTY lists!
