Weekly Craft Update – October 20, 2014

Okay! Here we go.

So, last week I showed you one small project I’d pulled out of my unfinished projects box. I got it done. I still need to wash, press and frame, but after a trip to Michael’s, I will have it done soon. They had some cute frames with mats on clearance (yay!) plus for my birthday month, I had an extra coupon.

So, here is that project…

Next that got done last week, was another small project, one of Dimension’s “Daydream” collection. It also needs a bath and pressing, but I am going to do that today. The interesting part of these is that they come with a mat that is patterned to match the stitching and then sandwiched between glass and backing board. It doesn’t look like much, but when I can share the mounted version it will look even better.

I’ve also had lots of crochet time. I have less than four inches to go on the bag. I am going to be trying to focus on one project at a time now to be able to accomplish as much as I can between now and Christmas. Some for presents, some for Etsy (see “About” above for that link). During my last trip to Michael’s I also picked up more yarn for a couple of projects. Some are going to be gifts, but I won’t give away for who, since I know my family and friends read this lol. Anyway, bag progress…

And with a ruler, to show to size…

That’s all for now. Keep smiling and keep crafting!!

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

    I adore the hummingbird cross stitch. They always looks so delicate and beautiful. Can’t wait to see it framed! I know how it is having to hide the gift info. I’m hoping no one I my family discovers my blog until after the holidays!
