Starting something new

One of my absolute favourite things to do is to start a new craft project.  Note the emphasis on start!  Truth be known, I also get an enormous sense of satisfaction, relief and enjoyment from finishing a project, but by far the fun is in the starting.

I came across Brittany Tyler's fabulous Bullseye Afghan on Ravelry a little while ago, downloaded the free pattern and tucked it away somewhere safe.  Only yesterday I discovered a gorgeous blog called Foxs Lane by Kate, who has also made this project, and I needed no more encouragement to grab my little wool stash and begin!!

As I started to put colours together Girl 2 appeared at my side and asked what I was doing.  I explain, I show her the pictures, the wool I plan to use for the first bullseye, all excitement bubbling from me when, cut to the quick, she reminds me of all the projects I haven't finished ... my scarf, the flower rug, the quilts (don't even start on the quilts!!)  But totally undeterred I begin ...

And it is so much fun!  I'm loving how the colours are looking quite snazzy together!  I don't have enough of one colour to make into the square shape, but I'll just keep going with the circles for now and keep using up all the colours I have before choosing the main background colour.

Wishing you a relaxed and happy Christmas day, and hope you have the chance to start something new very very soon.
