Yes I am admitting I am a polygamist, that is a polygamist projector. Weird way to term it I know, but one of my favorite podcasts Stash and Burn talks about monogamist projects. This of course means starting and completing one project at a time.

So naturally I took the idea one step further and realized I was a polygamist quilter,knitter,reader,and even blog surfer. I was worried that I was ADD, but now know I am only a polygamist projector. Whew thought I might need therapy and medication.

I have however finished two projects, well really one and half. The socks are from the Octobersock knit. I was hoping these would be done for Halloween. Didn't make that deadline but they are completed for Thanksgiving. The quilt has been on the table waiting to be quilted for months. Last weekend I think I got my MoJo back. Finished quilting the quilt, finish binding on a quilt for a nephew and the October socks are done. Polygamist projector yes I am!

Where have I been is the question. I seem to always be doing something but never anything important. A little knitting here , a little sewing there and only as little cleaning I can live with.
I have started to walk again and am listening to Stash and Burn. These women talk alot about patterns and different kinds of yarn. Often I have no idea what they are talking about, but I really like their voices. Weird I know!

Made some bread, five loaves to be exact. Gave some away to friends and family. Greg and Leslie will be recipients of organic wheat flour I grind. Lezlie has some very good laying hens and is kind enough to keep Eric and I well supplied. My bread recipe is from the Urban Homemaker. I have used this recipe for years and it never fails.

I made this apron, it reminds me of my Grandmother Nellie. Here is a site to review some Free Apron Patterns. Sorry about the flash in the picture.

This pattern is called Church Ladies. I bought it at a Quilt Store in Northern Colorado.

Hope all who read this blog, especially my daughter in China has a wonderful week.
8 months to go.
