Unfinished Works

Oh my.  I took a little inventory of what I had on needles at the moment...

Starting from the upper left and working clock wise

1. Wine Sweater started over the summer
2. Baby Blanket started at the end of August
3. "Barf" Blanket started in Jan 08
4. Purple Pillow started for my boyfriend's cousin. I got really far with that one.
5. Blue scarf (bottom) started before last Christmas as a gift for my grandma.
6. Green hand warmers started last summer
7. blue scarf (center) started at the beginning of July
8. Red (middle) bottom of a heart
9. Red hat started last weekend for a charity project
10. Orange hat started two weeks ago for a swap (it's going to be a pumpkin)
11. Blue Panel for a purse I started last winter for a friend... it has yet to be felted.

Pretty sad, I start new projects all the time.  I always think, oh I will finish all my projects before I buy more yarn, but you can take that up with the three huge baskets of yarn in my small apartment

Pile Of Craft

When I went in search of a name for my craft business/card line, I really wanted to name it "Pile of Craft" because I thought it was funny, and because I experiment with so many different types of projects. I love to knit, crochet, make cards, scrapbook, paint, rubber stamp, collage, and pretty much anything else I have tried or what to.

I thought it was about time to begin documenting my many crafty escapades and sharing them with others. Selling my creations hasn't been as lucrative as I thought it would be (let's face it, my only customers are family members) but I still want to make them!

This will be a documentation and exploration of my crafty escapades. I'm excited to jump in feet first to my giant Pile of Craft.
