Works in Process or is it Progress?

by The SpinArtiste on May 1, 2016

Yesterday I posted over at Fibery Goodness about the springing of spring all around me which included an open invitation to have lunch with Jan Massie and myself next weekend at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival — here is the link to the post. 

doodlerThis morning, someone said to me that it sounded like I was making good progress on some things which quite frankly was a surprise because most of the time, I feel like I’m just plowing around in the mud trying to get things to a finished state.  For example, and since this is a fiber-related space on the internet, I have been working on one knitting project for many months:  the Doodler by Steven West.  It has been an act of brute force a lot of the time to keep going.  I am now truly on the home stretch.  I am not sure how many hours I have left, but relatively speaking, not that many.  I am so ready to be DONE because I want to make something else.  Well, I want to make a lot of things, but I have a strict rule now that I only let myself work on one thing at a time until it is finished.  I adopted this rule a few years ago when I had a number of unfinished things that were no longer exciting me.  I got rid of them all — some I had finished by someone else, some I dismantled, and some I just trashed.  I cleaned house of those “works in process”…or UFO’s as we like to call them.  They were definitely NOT Works in Progress.  [click to continue…]

My drawing as interpreted by Suzy Brown, "Mr. Winkie Buttbutt"

Like a lot of other folks, I’m a little caught up in the coloring craze…what better way to pass the time if you can’t or don’t feel like spinning, knitting or crocheting?  Even better if the picture is something related to fiber!  This past week, over at Fibery Goodness, Suzy  Brown released a coloring book […]
