Weekly Craft Update – February 17, 2014

Good Monday morning my lovely readers! I hope everybody had a great weekend, and now ready to tackle another week. I know I am, busy weekend, but after a good nights sleep, I’m ready to go. 🙂

So, on Facebook the past few weeks, I’ve been keeping everyone up to date on my latest projects, but, for those of you that are new to following me, I will give a little background. I spent the last part of 2013 and the beginning of 2014 working on cleaning, sorting and organizing my house. During all of this I found a lot of “UFOs” (un finished objects, also known as projects started but never finished). So, to keep myself from getting overwhelmed by them, I have them in a box, in my closet. I have finished one already, as well as one I got for Christmas. The most recent one pulled down is a little bigger than some so not very portable. Finished size is 14″ x 14″. But, what I have been doing is taking weekly pictures to not only show off progress, but also so I can see the progress I’ve made. The following is the pictures from the first two weeks. On the left is what it looked like when I took it out of the UFO box, and on the right is about a week later.


I’ve also had people trying to guess what it is. I’ve had angel, bird and several others. With our snowy week, I had a lot of time to work, crafts keep me sane and from getting cabin fever. Here is this week’s progress.


Also, since that is not very portable, I have been working on smaller projects to carry around. As a mom of a dancer I have a lot of time sitting and waiting. So, I also managed to finish this hooded scarf. I have gauge issues with crochet sometimes, so although this is supposed to be a lady’s size, it’s more kid sized. Rather than rip it apart and start over, it will end up on my eBay page lol. Here is how it came out.


Thanks for looking everybody! Have a great one!


About craftymomchronicles

Okay, so this is where I am supposed to be witty and cute and tell you how funny and awesome I am to get you to read my blog. Well….. not sure how that is going to work. I am a stay at home mom of two, one is my minime high school student and theater chick, the other is my homeschooled dancing dude, who is momma’s lil man. I get to stay at home and do all this cool stuff thanks to my awesomeness hubby who works his tush off so I can. Of course staying at home isn’t for everybody, and we’ll dive into THAT some day I’m sure, but I love it, and I have my crafts to keep me busy. That is what started this whole thing. Hubby said to me “babe, you should start blogging” and well, here I am. Good luck and enjoy! And yes, I do approve all comments, but don't think I'm censoring everybody. I will let negative ones through as long as everybody plays nice. View all posts by craftymomchronicles
