Aah… January 25. Exactly one month after Christmas. Yet I still have uncompleted Christmas presents stuffed in my project bags. Do I finish them and send them out or put them on hold until next year?
Two of them have only needed to be sewn up since Christmas week. What I’ve been waiting for, I do not know.
One is a polar bear for my Grandmother who has been to Alaska to photograph the polar bears in action twice in the past few years. Now that she’s in her 90’s her polar bear visits have ceased, but she is expecting a little polar bear to come visit her via USPS and I still need to sew him up. I actually finished crocheting him pretty early on in December, but the instructions stopped and didn’t tell me how to sew him, not that I can’t figure it out, so I kind of stopped to. Bad, bad granddaughter. Being that my Grandmother specifically requested an amigurumi on Christmas after I had given a few others as gifts, I guess I should really finish this one and get it out.
Another is a Dragosaurous Harf. A dragon/dinosaur hat/scarf made out of super warm Wool-Ease Thick & Quick. This one is for my nephew who really likes dragons and dinosaurs. With the weather we’ve had this January in NY, I really should have finished this one, especially since all I need to do is sew it up. It would have kept him nice and warm… and would have been a lot of fun too. Bad, bad aunt.
Then there’s the epic project, a photo blanket of my son for my husband. The completed part was revealed to him on Christmas Day. He’s started asking about it again. My new goal is to finish by Father’s Day.
So perhaps the Polar Bear and Dragosaurous Harf could be called Valentine’s Day presents, giving me a new deadline that I could live up to?
Then again… Christmas 2012 is just around the corner.
