July is going to be crazy... I'll admit that right now. Vacation Bible School at church, a week-long trip to Michigan to watch my granddaughter, and some canning of those great summer fruits and veggies... so, my lists are a bit more vague this month.
I started out the month with some organizing, getting a recent yarn gift (a tall kitchen garbage bag full) sorted into inventory, so I can easily find it when I need it for a project. That also helps me to plan out projects, knowing just what I have on hand!
Then I dumped out the basket next to my chair. It was overflowing with yarn left over from projects. I sorted it by yardage, and made myself three bags: tiny scraps, medium size ball and large ball/slightly used skeins. I found eight balls/skeins of cotton yarn that will be great for more chicken potholders!
|Looking a little neater now.|
So, here is my list for July:
