Gift Card Holders

At some point during the A to Z Challenge, someone asks about the knitted letters at the end of my posts. And since G fell on a knitting day...

Yes, I knit all the letters myself. I did it back in 2015, and I wrote a whole post about them. I won't bore you with a rehash. I have several of them listed in my Etsy shop. If you're in the market for one, let me know and I can make it with the letter and in the colors you wish.


But I couldn't just do a repost thing for the A to Z. No, I needed a newbie for this post. Although, this isn't quite a newbie.

It seems my theme for this month's projects is finish-all-the-things-that-fell-by-the-wayside. Last week I finished up a pair of slippers I had promised back in January. This week I restocked my unicorn gift card holder.


I sold the last one back on October. I intended to make another to replace it right away, but other things got in the way. Like Christmas.


But I had some time last week, and it was way past time to make another. This one is listed in my shop (here's another link to it).

(The design is by the talented One Dog Woof, and you can find the pattern here.)

Once I realized my theme for projects this month, next week's M became super obvious. Fingers crossed that I can get that finished in time as well.

Have any random projects of yours fallen by the wayside? Have you had a productive month so far? 

Today's A to Z Challenge post brought to you by the letter...

  1. That unicorn is so cute! I'm going to visit your eTSY shop. I know I've bought from you before and I know what you have featured there (at least some of the items) but I haven't looked around it. It will be fun to do!

  4. Love the unicorn!

    I made a really nice quilt for my new gr-son last March. then I hurt my right hand and haven't done a thing since then. It makes me sad, since I have three projects in a line.

    1. It's more important for your hand to heal first. But I know what you mean.

  5. I am the queen of random projects. I don't think I could finish all my crochet WIPs in my lifetime. Gosh, I could have sham...I mean, inspired myself by A to Z. Too late!

  6. I'm actually pretty good with my projects lately. I'm either pecking at them regularly or getting them done. Not sure what sort of magic I worked to do this. >.> lol

  10. Seriously adorable unicorn! I'm the type of person who has an overabundance of ideas and projects and work best when I have many going on at once. So there are always things in the wayside pile. But I do make a point of setting aside (as in scheduling and then doing) four hours a month to tackle such things. I start with an idea of what I'd like to accomplish, work for two hours, get as much done as I can, then stop and check in with myself. If the project isn't finished perhaps I'll choose to continue working on it, or maybe I'll choose something else (or a number of other things) to work on. No matter how much I accomplish I always feel good after those 4 hours.

    1. That's a great method. It's one way to make sure an endeavor is worthwhile.

  15. I was editing my book before April, and that has fallen by the wayside due to AtoZ. It's hard to write a new post daily, try blogs from the Master list, and visit my regular blogs, too!

    I know you must be in the same boat, and I appreciate your regular comments during this crazy month!

    1. It helps when I have an easy class and can visit blogs during the day :) Like this week. Last week was harder.
