That means I need to make up a new Penguin Pail.
Life has been crazy and I haven't had the time to get one together!
Today's #CreativeDaily keyword is "Getting Started" - so here I go! I'll just make up an ambitious list off the top of my head!
July 2015 Penguin Pail
1. Finish both of the WIP I currently have started:
Monster Granny Squares. It will take 36 squares: 18 Monsters, 9 solid color squares with off-white border, and 9 off-white squares. I have 14 of the 36 squares done. At the back left of the picture, you can see my other WIP (Work in Progress) - Baby Shark Slippers. I have one done and the other one started. Should be able to finish up with a few more hours' work.
2. Jake the Giraffe
I want to make another striped giraffe, one of my best sellers. I wasn't sure of what color scheme to use until my daughter was talking about a wedding she attended. She said the color scheme was coral and navy blue and that she really liked that together. So, I made a trip to Hobby Lobby and used a gift card to pick up a few skeins of yarn:
Stripe Generator at the Biscuits and Jam website and punched in my color choices, then refreshed a few times until I got a stripe pattern that caught my eye. Now I can start on Jake (the groom at the above-mentioned wedding was named Jacob).
3. Hooded Dinosaur Blanket. ( Pattern Here )
Snappy Tots offered a free pattern last month, and I got this one free... so I bought some yarn and am eager to get going on this project!
4. Bucket of Fun Project
My "how many projects" last month was fun... so I'm going to do it again, on a slightly larger scale. I have an empty tub from pretzels.
|Imagine this filled with yarn|
I haven't gotten around to it yet, but I am going to fill it with balls of yarn and mostly-used up skeins, and work on little projects through the month to finish it off. I'm eager to pop out a few more Twirly Birds and Mini Teddy Bears.
5. Another Amish Puzzle Ball critter! Maybe a dinosaur this time...
Since this list of 5 items will probably generate about 30 finished items, I think I'll end there!
Let the July crafting begin!
