Unfinished Easter Crochet Projects

Like most people who like to play with yarn and hooks, I always have good intentions when I start a crochet project.

And I guess I should explain that what I thought I wanted to accomplish turns out NOT to be where my heart took me.

Take this cute little bunny that I began making for one of my granddaughters.

The well laid plans were for me to make two of these for the girls Easter baskets.

And as you can see, I started one but haven’t finished it in time for the big day.

There’s still time, you say?  If I put my mind to it and work really hard I could surely get at least one done in time?

First of all… one?  Are you kidding me?  Have you ever seen two sweet little girls fighting over a single stuffed bunny?  Let alone one that was made by Grandma?  I have and let’s just say, it isn’t pretty.

Second of all, I suppose I should come clean and tell you that I started this poor rabbit a couple of years ago and I have no intention of finishing him any time soon.  It’s just that this was the closest thing I had to a completed Easter project to share with you here at Imperial Crochet this weekend.

I do highly recommend the pattern book to anyone looking to make some super cute stuff.  In fact, I’ve made quite a few of the adorable items shared by Maki Oomaci, in her book, Simply Adorable Crochet – 40 of the Cutest Projects Ever!

I’ve simply lost interest in Amigurumi and crochet toy making for right now.

Does this ever happen to you?  Have you got unfinished crochet projects laying around?  Have you lost interest in making a certain type of item?

Anyway…

The real point of this post is to wish all of you who celebrate a happy and loving Easter!

And to those of you who don’t celebrate… go do something happy and loving this weekend too. Just because!

  3. Happy Easter to you too 🙂 I have quite a few unfinished projects and every week my bullet journal has a -> to move it to the next… Just when I think I’m going to finish that off “quickly” … Wham – new inspiration hits me and so I start on a new project and the old returns to the “Someday” pile 🙂
