Name and Shame (Part I)

In the spirit of Getting Things Done, here is a list of unfinished craft projects sitting around my house:

one cardigan
one pair socks
one hat
one tea towel
Three skirts
One bath robe
One set kitchen towels
One net bag
One felted clutch

Some of these projects have been sitting around FOR A VERY LONG TIME (in one case, a decade). But on the other hand, since starting my Getting Things Done campaign (more on that later) wih the New Year, I have finished a blouse, a scarf, and a hat. That counts for something, right? right?

Stray from the Path 2.0

My first post was written in 2006 and hey! Happy New Year! it's now 2009. Let's give this a second chance, shall we? I'll still be writing about the same bits and pieces, I'm just two years wiser. And now I have a goal! I'm working on completing a portfolio for MFA applications. Maybe posting my progress here will motivate (shame) me enough that I complete things.

Hey there,

So I'm trying this whole blog thing. Why? Well, several reasons. First of all, I'm tired of repeating my own narrative over and over again in my head, and this way I can at least pretend someone else is listening. Second, posting my fiber art projects may motivate me to actually get things done. And finally, maybe, just maybe, what I post will be helpful or of interest to others. I plan on mostly posting fiber art related items including knitting and weaving projects, attempts at fiber sculpture, textile history, etc. Other things I might write about: tedious childhood incidents that I can't let go of, other forms of art, my desire to own llamas, travelling, illustration, favorite rant topics, my job, books, dropping out of grad school, and whatever else I'm currently obsessing over.

Welcome and enjoy.
