FRIDAY FIVE- a day early.

(I'm in a group on Multiply that does this meme and although I don't blog on Multiply any more I still like playing I have to get a blog in where I can these days!)

January, according to the website Bizarre & Unique Holidays is National Hobby Month. Hmmmm......I've tried tons of different hobby's over the years. The trick to doing a hobby is actually completing the project! During the winter it's so easy to start something but then as the weather warms these things seem to get tossed aside leaving you with a pile of half started incomplete thingies! So today, in honor of Hobby month answer these 5 questions about your projects.....they can be anything from crafts to home renovations!
  1. Tell me about a project you started a long time ago and haven't finished yet.

    That would be painting my bedroom dresser and chest of drawers. I got one painted and the other is still waiting for me to finish.
  1. Tell about a project you have in the works right now or something you've completed.

    I made 6 bandanna quilts for my nieces and nephews for Christmas. Thats something I completed. I have some name pillows I started the other night that I need to complete if I'm going to get paid for them.
  1. Tell about a project that's on your wish list.

    I want to make a quilt for my bed. Thats another thing I have started but haven't gotten far. It's a lot of hard working piecing those squares together.
  1. Tell about a craft or hobby you enjoyed as a child.

    I don't think I was very crafty as a child...not that I can remember. One of my hobbies has always been reading.
  1. Tell about your favorite hobby/hardware store.

    That would have to be Michaels or Hobby Lobby. They are almost 2 hours away so I don't get to go often but when I do I can stay in there all day.
Thanks for playing! Remember to leave your link so everyone can play along!

You're so crafty! :)

I'm not, but I do love Michaels for all the random stuff I can find there. I bought a ton there last week, since all the stocking stuffers were 4/$1. I filled up the boys' teachers' prize boxes.

Two hours away to the nearest hobby place - that's a bummer - but it sure saves on those impulse buys!! You did an awesome job completing all those quilts for Christmas. I'm famous for taking up new things and not sticking with it unfortunately.
