Winter WIP's

I have a couple of WIP's I am trying to complete so that I can get a start on my massive list of 'things I want to make in 2013'.

You know when something you enjoyed turns into a chore, well I am at that stage with my crochet flower hexie blanket.  I don't want to join together until I have enough so I can faff on with the placement of the colours, so far I have 84 hexies and each one is a little bigger than the palm of my hand.  I reckon I need another 30 or so, better get weaving.
I am so easily distracted...

I also found this at the bottom of my 'to do' box, it has been 80% complete for a year now I started it last Christmas!! 
I must at least get this one out of the way before Christmas, oh hang on that's only 4 days away... better get on with it!

Back Soon

I would just like 5mins to do something for myself for a change! The crochet flowers look lovely and I'm sure it'll be beautiful when it's finished, well worth all your hard work but I don't envy you!! More chocolates required I think !!

Your crochet flowers are beautiful - I'm looking forward to seeing it finished and coveting the end result! But I know what you mean about WIPs... I have a few few going back almost 2 years that I have carefully hidden in my craft room as I feel so guilty about not finishing them!

I know how you feel--I've lost all vigor for working on my hexie sewing project. I'm hoping to make major progress over the holidays, but we'll see.

I know what you mean about running out of steam, hope you get your motivation back soon. It will be a lovely blanket when you are finished.
