What Haven’t I Done?

It’s been busy in the craft department these 2 weeks…well, as compared to my previous weeks of… nothing or mostly nothing anyway. From crochet, to cross stitch, to jewelry making, and back to crochet I’ve been having some fun reacquainting myself to the joys of working with my hands.

The Cat in the Hat, not just a book anymore

Ta-da!  As promised the cat in the hat I crocheted!  All things considered I like to think it’s turned out well.  I got a few quick picks right after I’d finished hooking in the bits for the mohawk and then one when it was finished.   My cat is really thrilled that I got this…

Another project down? I’m on a roll!

Anyone who knows me personally can attest that I’m awful about getting projects finished.  I’m working on getting better at that, but I’m still lagging on some of my Christmas presents from last year so…..  As is I’m planning on making out a list of projects I have promised to others and myself, it’ll probably…
