Time flies...

...when you're having fun?   ...when you're procrastinating?  ...whether you like it or not?  Take you're pick.

I realized how fast time flies when I was hunting for a picture to use for this post. I went back to this day in 2011 and found these


I crocheted a bunch of these motifs with the intention of crocheting them all together to make a table runner. Me being me, I lost interest and moved on to something else leaving all of them in a basket that got buried in the craft room. Just a couple weeks ago I found them again and thought they might make a good backing for the felt roses I made recently. So they may actually have a purpose now. Unless of course I lose interest again and yet another plan falls short of completion. Maybe after 6 years of sitting around waiting to be used they should either go into a project or go to someone who might use them.

They are very pretty, and would make nice mug coasters.

Those are really beautiful. Let us know what you decide to use them for. Happy Friday.

They are really pretty! I know you will find a great use for them in one of your projects.

Those are pretty Ann! m Boy can I relate to your "procrastination"...or moving on to another craft before the first one is done! Ha! I think all of us crafters have a whole stash of stuff we don't even know we have!! I have an entire room full and I am positive that there are many things in there that I could use...if I just had the time to go through them! Enjoy your weekend!!

They are so pretty, but I know what you mean, I have a box full of bits of crochet and nothing to do with them. Bit like my paws, lol

I agree with Ginny, the 3 together would make a nice mug coaster. I am the opposite, if I start something I am not happy until it is done, of if like the coloring book I bought a few months ago, it was put away until I find someone to give it to. I am always ahead of time, almost always I have 7 to 10 posts in my drafts waiting for words. or the right time. the only thing I procrastinate on is making the call for a doc appt.

No pressure at your house. If you want to do something you do, if you don't you don't. I like that approach.

Have a fabulous day. Tomorrow is your day off. Excellent. Big hug to you and tons of scritches to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

If they are light in weight, I think with the felt roses they would make lovely pins - I have something along those lines on one of my winter hats...

I can't believe you let them go. Sorted through a refrig out at the lake and found some relics from the past in just condiments left behind.Refridgerator mottifs LOL

Six years? Glad they finally have a purpose!

I think I may have you beat in the procrasting project as I have a half finished "latch hook" rug I started the year I got married...25 years ago this month that is still in my closet.
