Woodland Crazy Patch That Makes Me Crazy

Here's a photo of a square crazy quilt I've been working on and off for years. I'm not even sure how many any more cause it's been too long. I did most of this embroidery done last year and hadn't picked it back up until recently when I moved it back to my UFP (unfinished projects) basket. I also have a shelf with more UFPs.

I start a lot of things, get sidetracked then store it. Somethings I never finish, I just try to recycle the materials into something else or toss it. This past spring I finished 2 rabbit girls I had started 3 years ago. Today while searching for some mini bottles I bought cause they looked like 'I Dream of Jeannie' bottles only clear, I found all the supplies I bought to make microscope slide jewelry. I could never decide what I wanted to put between the glass pieces so the small crate of supplies has sat for years. I don't even want to talk about all the mini quilts and blocks I have cut out, sewed, but never did anything with. Oh, BTW, I don't know what I ever had in mind for the bottles. Now I'm thinking about turning them into jewelry.

I did have a small clean out of craft supplies I thought I'd never use in May and guess what? Yesterday I came across a craft I wanted to make but now don't have the foam balls I got rid of! From noe on everytime I even think about getting rid of any supplies I'm going to search Pinterest first just in case I find something using it I'd like to make.

Here are some more close-ups of the woodland quilt.

This is the upper corner. I had a beautiful large goldfish embrodered here but decided it was too large so cut off all that work and made these smaller ones. I prefer the smaller ones but it was really hard to destroy that goldfish. I was so perfect just way to big. Below is the pond in the middle. I love the blue heron I made. My husband took some fantastic pics of one at a local park and that gave me the idea of putting one there.
