- 10% cuff,
- 10% leg,
- 10% heel & gusset,
- 10% foot,
- 10% toe and weaving in ends.
These French Press slippers got done last year. I dove into my button stash to find a fun way to complete 'em. Yep, I know they don't match. I'm happy. I did the finishing touches back in November but POIND. (Pictures or it's not done.) Now it's done.
In a Garden got framed up and I'm very pleased with how it came out.

Baby Booties: Make 6 pairs (1 down) 'Nuff said.
Sweater: Make 1 for me. Yeah, that's still in the dream stage.
Gloves: Make 3 pairs (see above)
Hats: Make 1 (done!) VICTORY!
Charity: Make 2 projects (1 down) 1>0 (that's not an emoticon: it's a mathematical expression)
New Baby Coming: make something (sorry, kid)
Non-charity quilts: Complete 6 --zilch (sewing machine mostly used to convert ugly boy uniform shirts into pretty girl uniform shirts so I don't look like a shlub at work)
Charity tops: Make 12 (3 down--there may have been more)
Morsbags: Make 30 + Zipper bags: Make 30 (grouped here to make it look like less)
Bonus: 1 apron (WOOT!)
Cross-stitch projects: Complete 6 (2 down) Well, that's somethin'
"Involved" beadwork: Complete 1 + Earrings: Make 20 pairs for sale No beads, no how.
S&SF/Asimov mags: read 12 (6.5 down--halfway there!) .5 refers to the one I lost in Costco halfway through. Meh.
Non-fiction Books: read 4 (2 down) Really? Just 2? Just checked. Yup. 2.
Classic Literature: read 4 (done)
Other Books: read 12 (done! +2)
So if we break all this down into what's really been completed:
- FIVE pairs of socks
- ONE pair baby booties
- ONE hat
- ONE charity bear
- THREE charity quilt tops, maybe more
- TWO cross-stitch projects
- 26.5 books and magazines read
So really, all this AND a thirty-hour job AND a home AND a teenager getting ready to graduate from high school: not bad. I'd be willing to bet that none of my co-workers at the game store made five pairs of socks last year. So there.
