Didn't say this yesterday, but I finally went through and made a project list. But this one is more in depth than my previous one. I've got it mapped out by paycheck and deadline. lol Because some of these things will be gifts.
We got paid! Hooray! Justin is supposed to give me fifty bucks for buying the things I need. Sometimes I feel like I'm on an allowance. bleh Then again, I feel I've earned it lately. Considering that maids/cleaning ladies/babysitters make LOADS of money to do what I do. And they don't even cook!
I also just found out my buddy Andrew gave my brother some money to give to me. We share the same cell phone plan and he usually gives the money to my brother since he sees him more often. Andrew always gives me a call though, my brother (god love him) is NOT the most reliable of kids. So anyway, I should have some spare dollars this month. Don't wanna spend it all, but...I'd really love to buy myself a present. Since mostly I'm spending on other people right now.
Maybe some nice sock yarn from Mama-E's? There was some beautiful stuff I saw in someone's Etsy shop...but it's gone already. :( If not, maybe I'll just pick up some of that stuff for dying on KnitPicks and try my hand at that. I might just roll over and use it to buy some yarn to make my mom the Baccarat Player. It's the first thing I've found that seems right for her.
I'm just DYING to make some more socks. But I've gotta finish this MP first. It's my focus for now. I hate feeling pressure but I guess that's my own fault. blurg. However, I did decide to have some sock yarn and needles on hand to pack my small projects bag with, to have with me when I go to the hospital. That way I won't be bored. I'll leave you with a snippet from my list (it'll keep til Nov, when Christmas presents will start, some SP things have been abbreviated on the list:
- Cleaves (last skein purchase tomorrow) TBF-at leisure
- Mystery Project (paid for) TBF-June 30
- Various items for SP (this paycheck) TBF-June 20
- Feather & Lace (paid for) TBF-at leisure
- Back-tie Lelah (paid for) TBF-at leisure
- Baccarat Player (next paycheck) TBF-July 15
- More fun stuff for SP (July 1 paycheck) TBF-Mid July/Mid Aug
- Converse Booties (Aug 1 paycheck) TBF-Sep 7
- Suede booties and hat, Onesie dress for Danielle's baby (over two paychecks) TBF-Sep 20
Okay, that's enough for now. I've still got a couple months worth of things to make. Some presents for my friends/family, plus all of me renwear for October. The total cost for all of that stuff is like $300. Of course, that's spread out over three months or so. And it doesn't include the projects I've already bought yarn for. :P
