WISP challenge -- plastic canvas

Last time I posted I mentioned a challenge to finish off projects that I have lying around my house. Boy do I need that challenge. I have what is commonly called SABLE, or Stash Acquired Beyond Life Expectancy. I live in a 1½ story house, and my craft room is in the upstairs ½ story. It was easy to dump stuff up there and forget about it. A couple of weekends ago I decided to tackle the Craft Room –cue ominous music! Part of the momentum came from having access to a digital camera so that I could document the progress. Now, I have most of my craft room cleaned up and organized. It was a three day project but I am so excited! I have found almost all my crafts, and almost all their instructions. The craft room is now usable, and the wanted items can be found. I have just a few more projects to round up from the main part of the house. What was kinda scary about the whole thing was just how much I had forgotten. I definitely can shop for crafting materials in my attic for some time now.

For a while I was so excited about knowing where things were that I was flitting from project to project and not getting much accomplished. I believe I have settled on a project for now and hope to get some serious work done. I am currently working on plastic canvas needlepoint. I have a set of 4 placemats, and 3 coaster sets that I started over 15 years ago. They have mostly been sitting in plastic boxes patiently waiting for me to get back to them.

I've been fighting with Blogger to post the pictures in the order I want, and it just isn't working, so on top is the progress made, on the bottom is where I restarted.

If you really want to see a listing of all my crafts, I have an account on Listology. Go to my user name there is zaijovan. If you are really bored you can take a look at the books I’ve read and the movies I’ve watched too. These are only lists, no pictures.
