It appears to be a time of finishes.
The year is about to finish.
Our homeschool is finished; my eldest is going to TAFE (Tertiary and Further Education) and my youngest is returning to the school system.
My husband finished at his employment.
My time as a home ed facilitator and full time stay-at-home mum is almost finished as I'll now have to look for part time work.
Now that we've packed up the school books, I've had a bit more time for craft. In the last 24 hours, I've managed 3 crafty finishes (and a mend but that doesn't count!)
The "Mixed Flowers" Applique panel did become a cushion. I had thought of going the whole way with a quilt but my aim is to get through as many UFOs as quickly as possible.
Another little set of crocheted cotton face swabs in their own delicates wash bag- a pre-order for a friend.
And finally, the socks. I'm wearing them now. :)
So. What comes after so many finishes? Beginnings, I guess. The next year will bring a lot of change; possibly some discomfort as we all adjust but also new opportunities, new experiences and new projects.
