Weekly Craft Update – November 3, 2014

Hi everybody!

I took last week off, as it was my birthday week, as well as Dracula week for DS and I with the ballet.

But, I did get some things done in the past couple of weeks. First, I mounted and framed the two small cross stitches I completed and got them on Etsy. Here is how they came out:

The bag I had been working on, is to the side at the moment. I ran out of yarn, so it will be something that I will probably redo at some point, but, as I am in the middle of the crunch of Christmas crafting, it can wait.

As I mentioned though, my birthday was last Monday and my wonderful daddy keeps an eye on my Amazon wish list lol, so these showed up for my birthday. First one I pulled out is another Dimensions gold series, of a cabin and the auroras. I took a picture of the back of the package because I am very excited that it came with all the colors pre sorted! That will save me nearly a day of work lol.

Second kit I pulled out I’m really excited about. I love Leonardo da Vinci, and I have a version of the painting in my house that my daddy and his mom, my grandmother, did from a paint by number kit many many years ago already so I think this will be great. Also excited that this one came presorted as well lol.

Lastly is a Christmas present I am working on. If any of my family is reading this, please be surprised if you open anything you see here on Christmas morning lol. I have had the Martha Stewart crafts loom knitting kit for a while, it’s fantastic because one kit gives you several sizes and gauges for loom knitting. So, I’ve been wanting to do a project like this with it for a while, since straight needle knitting is difficult for me. I am very slow and have issues with tension because my left hand is significantly weaker than my right after two wrist surgeries. Hence, why I crochet a lot more than I knit lol. But, I’m hoping loom knitting will be the answer to that. Here is what I have done so far. It’s about half a scarf…

Whew! I think that gets you mostly caught up on the crafting side of my life. I may have to do another life as a dance mom post soon lol.

Until then, keep smiling everybody!!

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
