projects

i don't know what it is, but i have always been a project person . . . i always have something that i am thinking about making, going to make or that i am half-way through making. ever since i finished the summer semester and have some extra time it seems like i have more ideas piling up and all i want to do is read "the host" instead of doing my projects.

so to remedy my summer laziness i am making a list. i love lists and i love checking things off lists even more . . . haha. . . maybe i'm crazy ~ but i think it's good crazy ;)

so here goes:

-sweater quilt {i started this at least a year ago and got really ambitious and said i was going to crochet the edges, well i think i am only 1/3 of the way done with that . . .}

-hem my drapes to the right length and sew the drapery things that are going on top of them {i bought the drapes like two months ago and the fabric to add to them like two weeks ago ~ on clearance at joann's and the perfect color! so excited!}

-modgepodge the three canvases that i bought at michael's yesterday with cute scrapbook paper. . . i need to find the link and the blog that i got this idea from, but i loved it and think it will go perfect above my tv. :) since i don't really have a family to put family pictures up of ~ i think i will go for some creative art . . . hopefully it turns out. :)

-start and finish the aprons that i bought the fabric for like 4 months ago! they are going to be so cute!

my goal is to finish these four things by the time school starts on august 20th . . . wish me luck!

I'd love to see your modgepodged canvases when you are done! That sounds like a craft I could actually do :)
