The goal of Finish It Friday is to make progress toward finishing UFO's (unfinished objects) by working on it today.
Perhaps I'll inspire you to pick up your own UFO and make some progress too!
Using the last drop - a decluttering project
At the beginning of the year I decided I needed to declutter the unused shampoo bottles that had been accumulating in the cupboard. For whatever reason I didn't like any of them but kept them as 'backups' incase I ran out of shampoo. Rather then discard them I decided to use them.
I'm the only person that uses shampoo in my house because hubby crops his hair and dogs have their own special hair shampoo, so even a few bottles took a while to get through.
I washed my hair this morning and used the last little bit in this bottle. The very last bottle of shampoo that doesn't work for my hair.
I keep wanting this shampoo to work for me because it comes in the big 1 litre bottles and is budget friendly, but it just doesn't. I think I've tried all the different formulations and my hair ends up dull and frizz prone so sadly this is goodbye.
And just in case you're wondering about conditioner, well I seem to go through it much faster so it's long gone.
I LOVE using the last little bit up of something. I'm not sure why but there is something really satisfying about emptying a container. How many back-up bottles of shampoo are in your cupboard?
Project started:January 2016
Last worked on the project:Today
Still to do:
- recycle the container
Update on Tunisian Crochet Entrelac Squares
Last week I got as far as frogging the edges, yesterday I hunted down the tutorial and I started in on the second square. I finished it just before heading off to bed. This morning I wove all the end in before I took photos. The squares would really benefit from blocking as well.
On the left is the first square which I started using the red yarn, and on the right is the second square, which I started using the black yarn. I can see a real improvement in my crochet since the first one was made.
Was there progress?YES. A whole second square and all the ends woven in.
Did I enjoy working on it?YES. I sure did, accept for when I had to frog and redo a whole row because I made a mistake.
Will I continue to work on it?YES. I am still undecided as to what to do with these squares. I might make more squares in different yarns and turn them into an afghan or I might still go with the little bag idea.
