I desperately hate modifying a post after it has been published and viewed by others; however, I needed to drop some text in here (or something). You see, I was out for the weekend and I thought that I put this auto post thing in queue WITH information; however, I obviously put in the basic stats on my progress but I forgot to write anything!

So for the last week, I worked on my table runner a wee bit and didn’t do much else. I rode my bike with the kids a lot…. and I cleaned the house… a lot. – but other than that, not much has been happening. I am getting motivated to start the men’s vest though…. maybe this week……

    A week with bike riding is a good week, in my view. Crafting is all the more satisfying when the weather is too grim to do anything else.

    I have to say again how I love that you're so good at keeping progress with the YoP list and added items! You're so much more organized then me! I hope you can get yourself to start at the vest this week.. And if not, maybe next week! Happy Crafting! Lily

    I do the same thing, I keep getting magpie syndrome “ooh shiny” must have it! I'm too afraid to calculate the percentages though, I'm a big fan of denial!
