Online Craft Club #53 and Progresso Soup Basket Winners

I have finished nothing, but I do have several irons in the fire. I’ve extended the button band on Sonnet by an inch, and it no longer gaps, except over the first two buttons, which I can just leave undone, I guess. I’m picking up stitches now to bring the collar in a bit. I have to admit that it makes me feel pretty good to be able to alter a knitted garment to fit better. The knitting of a piece is a satisfaction of it’s own, but fixing it when it doesn’t quite work, that’s a buzz of it’s very own. And OH MY WORD! When I button that thing, it is a completely different garment.

I also started to start a puzzle with the kids yesterday. I say started to start because we didn’t even get the pieces sorted out before I got a call and had to leave. Today, though, we shall start properly.

And now, I have delayed long enough, and it is time to announce the winners of the progresso soup basket. There were only 10 entries, so I can only guess that the week between Christmas and New Year’s might not be the best time to run a blog contest, right? The winning numbers, as selected by three children are 7, 4, and 10. According to the original post, that means I need to hear from Justin, Loretta, and Mama. Actually, I don’t need to hear from Mama, since I know right where she lives. Enjoy your kitchen wear ya’ll!

Take a picture of your current project, whatever that happens to be. Or maybe one you recently finished. Or the materials for the one you are about to start. Let’s say materials for a project in whatever state it happens to be in at the time you snap it. On Friday, post the picture and tell us about your project. What you did, or what you are going to do. How much you are enjoying it, or hating it. You know–show and tell.

Just copy & paste the code below the graphic and get crafty with me!
