Weekly Craft Update – March 31, 2014

Big update for you guys this week. Lots of craft related stuff I wanted to show off today. I’ve been snapping pictures like mad the past 15 minutes so I can show it all off to you.

First, is a book I picked up at Walmart a few weeks ago. Amigurumi is something that has fascinated me for a while now, and I already have the supplies for a HUGE project I will tackle eventually, but, I also wanted some practice with some scrap yarn, and this seemed perfect for that.


Next is the second scarf from the first Hook and Needle club kit I received. I haven’t started it yet, but will probably pick a weekend and just whip it together.


In the mail today, I got the next kit. “Learn a stitch dishcloths”. I’m excited about this one. I’ve made some hand towels already from cotton yarn before, and want to slowly replace store bought towels and things with my handmade ones, so this will get me moving in the right direction.


I also picked up some magazines this weekend. Love of Crochet, Spring 2014; Crochet Today February/March 2014; and Crochet World “Fun with color in thread” Spring 2014.


Loads of things I'm excited for in these, but these three are probably the top:




Now, my favorite secret crochet tool, I got this years ago, and now that I am wanting to learn lace and tatting, there is a similar set with the smaller steel hooks. Two handles, multiple tips and even a loom knitting tool all in one handy zippered case.


Last but not least, the moment you have all been waiting for… The progress on my cross stitch. I have found a way to made it more portable, but also, since it was a cold and wet weekend here I had a lot of time I could sit and stitch. I’m really pleased with the progress this week, I hope you enjoy looking and thanks for putting up with such a long winded post! Smile everyone!



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

    Oooh what an amazing collection of items to show off! That amigurumi book is just too cute! I can’t wait to see what you make! That Sugar ‘n Cream yarn also looks so scrummy! And that ‘Aviator’ bag is gorgeous! I think I need to go rummage around my stash and patterns now because you’ve certainly inspired me to get crafting!
