Crafting ADD

I flitted and floated from craft to craft all weekend...feeling a little like I had ADD and couldn't concentrate on anything:) In between crafts I cleaned out a bunch of clothes I no longer wear, shredded a whole bag of old financial docs and deep cleaned my sewing cabinet. Next up is the kitchen - I have everything that is normally on the counters piled on the kitchen table while I have the moustraps out. I'm kind of liking the clean, clear cabinets so Hubby and I have decided to try to pare it down in the kitchen. That will be my goal for this coming weekend.

Now on to the good stuff:

I worked on my fabric charms for Dawn's swap

Finished a new top (yes, it's the Built By Wendy top - but I swear I bought the pattern and the fabric before it became the new "it" top:) I LOVE it!! I'm going to make at least three more. The only alteration I made was adding about an inch to the bottom - I love that I could bend over and not show any granny panties. Sorry for the blurry picture:( But the soft focus makes me look thinner and younger.

And some crochet - a little flower, a dishcloth and a necklace made from crocheted wire.

All of your latest projects turned out great! I love that top. In the few months that I have been sewing clothes, my pattern collection has really grown...Surprisingly, I don't have that shirt pattern. Yet. :)

Great top, I may have to try it. When it comes to crafting, I always have ADD. Hubby gets irritated because I always have at least 5 projects going at once:-)

I like your charms too, very cute!
