Almost . . .

I ALMOST finished the papier mache Halloween "totem" but not quite. I still have to wait for the papier mache base piece to dry, glue a couple things together, varnish the whole thing, and make a hat for the cat on top of the stack. (Catchy little rhyme, eh?!)

I ALMOST finished sewing the blocks for the Halloween charm pack quilt but not quite. I have about five more black blocks to sew and then I'll need to sew about a dozen more half-square triangle blocks and trim them.

I ALMOST started decoupaging a wooden tray for Halloween but not quite. I found it needed a second coat of black base paint first, so I did that instead.

I ALMOST finished painting the cherub candle holder but not quite. Or maybe I have. I'm just not sure because it still doesn't quite look like what I was imagining.

I ALMOST started decorating a bunch of glass jars but not quite. You can see some of them on my kitchen table in yesterday's witch photo. The last two, though, are still in the dishwasher, so I had to wait.

I ALMOST started another Halloween project with these guys . . .


. . . but not quite. I felt like I should finish something before starting another project. But I think I'll have Hubby start the prep work for me in the next day or so.

I ALMOST typed up the class handouts for the first session of the Wool Crazy class but not quite. I prepared the written instructions for using flannel instead of wool for the background, but I didn't get around to illustrating the instructions, and then I remembered there was more I wanted to write up, but I figured I'd already put in enough "responsible adult time" so I went back to playing arts and crafts.

And I'm ALMOST glad the weekend's over but not quite. I've been working on so many crafty projects, it will be good to get out of the house and go to work. For about the first two hours. And then I'll wish I was home, playing with my toys again.

I ALMOST finished my name tag for Festival at the Green Pea...but not quite. I decided to share it anyway because some of the guests were looking for inspiration but I think you've got plenty of that here!
Hugs,

That's a lot of balls whirling away in the air around your head! Hope you get to pull them all down from the sky with a brilliant finish. I know you will.
