For this week's Fun Monday challenge Blue Momma said, "I want you to show me your......projects. More to the point, I want to see your unfinished projects. I have so many that I really need some reassurance that I'm not the only one. Home improvement projects are what I have in mind, but it you don't have any of those show me any kind of project - needlework, cooking, scrapbooking, etc."
When I first signed up for this Fun Monday, I did not read carefully, and I thought that Blue Momma was asking us to show our unfinished crafts. Not being a crafty person, I do not start many projects. For the few projects that I have started, I usually finish because my projects are intentionally short term. In fact, Daddy D and I have discussed the comparative length of our projects many times. He tends to start projects that take months to years to finish. My projects take hours or at the most a few days to complete.
I do have one project that has taken years to begin, and it looks like the project will not be finished soon. The project may seem simple to you, but I am not making much progress in completing this task. My project is making a braided denim rug. I began the project by saving old jeans. Since my son, Luke, is quite tall, he provided a wealth of old jeans. The jeans then need to be cut into strips, and then the strips are braided together. I collected jeans for ten years or so. I have cut the jeans into strips. Three summers ago, I started braiding some strips. I did not get very far. Maybe someday, my crafty husband will help me finish the project.
