It's fun to start a project during the Opening Ceremonies and try to finish before the end of the Closing Ceremonies.
Being an indecisive multi-tasker, I am starting THREE projects! Does that make me a triathlete??
I am not trying to finish them all before we leave London, but I plan to get a large part of each done. I'm not totally unrealistic!
Project One: Knitting--Owlie Socks. Click here to see my Ravelry page for these socks. Don't look at all the other unfinished projects I have listed there! I can't wait to get to the beaded part!
Project Two: Smocking--Honeycomb Smocked Bishop. That is the piece of floral fabric on the right. Obviously I haven't cut out the dress yet, so I'll sprint to the cutting table during commercials to cut out my fabric and sew my seams before I start smocking!
Project Three: Applique--Block 2 of this quilt. All applique is glued to the background. Now my favorite part: the handsewing!
My hubby just called down to let me know that the Opening Ceremonies are beginning. Leave a comment to let me know what YOUR Olympic project is. If you put it in writing, you're committing to that project! After all, I have narrowed my focus to just three projects for the next two weeks! That is an Olympian accomplishment for me!!
Off to work on those Owlies!

No, not THAT way! We're busy safety-pinning these cute discs to bolts of fabrics as we get ready for tomorrow's sale! All fabric will be 20% off, but the pinned fabric is a steal!
All yarn is also 20% off, including the 20 DIFFERENT COLORS OF LADDER YARN that arrived Tuesday! Many other yarns are marked with bigger circles and bigger discounts!

Hope you are all enjoying the day! I did some gardening this morning before it got too hot and now I'm spending the rest of the day in my sewing room!!
Take time to make a few stitches,
