But before we get to that, I've just noticed that my blog is 3 years old today!  I can't quite believe I've been blogging that long.  I really do have a lot to say... or rather I don't, but I can't help myself from waffling on anyway...

What did I finish in August?

crafts /projects I have supplies for

44. Bead loom.  That's it.  Just the bead loom!

So that's 1 WIP from a total of 37 (projects left) done -  2.7%. And 1 out of the total of 67 is 1.5%.  Overall I've done 31 from a total of 67 - 46%.  

(notice the decimal point, that's to make the percentages look higher than they are!)

BUT, in my defense  my house is a building site.  I did better than last month anyway.  I did make progress on a couple of the items from my list:

Man alive you are organized! I don't have the time or desire to list all my WIPs and upcoming projects.

Look at it this way - you've finished almost HALF of the projects you originally listed - it would be quite miraculous if you finished them ALL (a goal we aspire to, but few, if any, achieve) so just keep plugging away bit by bit and celebrate your finishes! Don't start a whole crapload of new things though - just the occasional project you absolutely cannot resist ;)

I think you have to look at it as a whole. When you've seen what you've accomplished in the year so far, it's amazing, especially with everything else that's going on.
