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. Advertisements

Hey Commish! Alternative Title: God my hands hurt.

Last Thursday a friend of mine asked if I would mind crocheting a blanket for her sister’s baby shower. She has yarn and a pattern picked out. Now I’m the kind of person who, when a friend asks me to do something like this I’m usually willing if they pay for the yarn, my friend…

Moar Yarn

Whoo, Sunday was a day full of adulting for me.  I’m not used to getting so much done, but it felt good.  I finally finished up the Kodama by sewing on his eyes while I was waiting on my laundry to dry at the laundromat.  Working on him made me want to do more Studio…

The Snarl

While I can’t claim that ALL my attention has been on moving, it has taken up large portions of my time of late and as you can imagine after I’ve worked all day then followed up with several hours of moving heavy things I just don’t have much left in me for crochet. I’m also…

Scarfing it down

I’m actually pretty proud of my work this week, both as an active crocheter and a procrastinator.  I’m proud to announce I haven’t touched my damn jacket since last I posted about it.  I was getting too frustrated with trying to make it look nice and was pretty close to doing some actual harm to…

Usually I’m Trash (bag), but today I’m Produc(tiv)e bag

So I thought I had Sunday off turns out, as with many things in life, I was very wrong.  Luckily this was pointed out to me by a coworker on Saturday (Yes, I worked all weekend.  I’m actually staring down 9 straight days in a row.) instead of me getting a really panic inducing phone-call…

Prepster jacket it may be…

But I obviously can’t prep anything to save my life.  Less than a week into the new posting schedule and I’m already messing it up.  I missed a post last Friday and thought about posting Saturday, but by then it was Sunday so I figured I’d just wait until Monday anyway.  Truthfully it was a…

Christmas Gift Update

Surprising no one I didn’t actually finish either of the gifts I was working on this Holiday season.  The French Market Bag I’ve been working on for my sister I don’t feel that badly about because I’d explained that the handles I’d originally planned to use wouldn’t be suitable and I wanted something with a…

Brushes off the dust

Ok, I’m back!  I request a pass for missing out on posting pretty much anything last month, it was insanity.  If you’d like full details please see sqpegroundhole because I’m not going to whine about it here too.  Here is a place for happy things like the new friend I’ve made! As a library worker you…

The Best Laid Plans of procrastinators rarely get done

But even knowing that I’m a procrastinator and against my better judgement  I think I’m actually going to try out a game plan for July to get back on the creative wagon. It’s going to be a little complicated because I’ll be doing some traveling and a family vacation this month, but maybe having a schedule…

SSDD

Ok, so this is going to look like a copy from another post I’ve made previously because of how much frogging I’ve had to do lately.  The two projects I’ve been carrying around are the Prepster Jacket and my Diana Shawl.  I just switch off working between them and have made some nice, measurable progress….
