We woke up to snow again today,
I haven't forgotten my ornament goal, and made 3 new ivory icicle ornaments today:
It will be interesting to see what my "secondary" stashes look like by November 1. I have a pretty big stockpile of needles, thread, zippers, elastics, ribbon--all sorts of accessories. I like to keep extras on hand so I don't have to run to the store in the middle of a project, but I think it might be like my first year of Cold Sheeping when I learned that I didn't use up yarn nearly as fast as I think I do. Sewing needles I might really use as fast as I think they do, as I try to be really good about changing them frequently and using the correct one. I wasn't taught to do that--I think growing up the only time a sewing machine needle got changed was after one broke and I certainly don't remember ever being told there was a difference between any of them, but then again, I didn't know there were multiple types of feet to use either. Maybe this has something to do with why I didn't enjoy sewing when growing up? Or maybe it was that I kept making dopey things I would never willingly wear in public..................:)
It's only 2:00, so I could either cut out a new project or go knit or maybe start a new ornament? I'm a little unsure what to do next, to be honest. The dress took less time than expected, which never happens, so you can understand my general state of confusion. It would be like boasting about the success of a knitting project without being immediately smacked by the Knitting Gods. It just doesn't happen...........
