January-Projects in Process

I think I am making January the "finish my projects in progress" month.  
No I am not talking about the remodeling projects we have.
I have a feeling those will be going on ALL year.  We still have so much to do and work on.
So a few projects I need to fish up...

I started this one back in the summer.  It was for the log house we were (and now eventually are) going to build.  I had/have all sorts of ideas for it.  When we moved to the place we live now, I knew I would have plenty of time to finish it up.  

I hand carved the background and the letters.  I am wood burning all of the letters, the pine cones and branches.  

I am working on the border.

And I still have a lot left to do.  I just have to find my wood burning kit.
I have seen my kit somewhere since we moved.  I think.

My next project to finish is some knitting.
I am ashamed to say that I started it almost 2 and a half years ago.

I am working on this throw.  

I have two more skeins of yarn to go.

I think I will take this with me next week when my mother has her surgery. 
 I can work on it while I sit in the hospital with her.  

It is my goal to finish up my projects that I have close to being finished before I let myself start any more.

So my first little goal of 2011 is to finish up those unfinished projects.


  1. I'm so impressed! I love the pinecones on your sign!

    I have a ton of unfinished projects. I need to complete them and get organized! That would be an excellent 2011 goal for myself!

    Happy New Year to you! I hope 2011 is wonderful!

  2. Wow! That sign is absolutely amazing and you definitely have some talent! My father-in-law does a lot of woodworking so I know the kind of patience it takes to do that. :-) Thanks so much for linking this up to Inspiration Friday this week!
