Weekly Craft Update – July 27, 2015

Busy! I know that has been my theme song this summer, but it’s so true! I do love it though. I don’t like being idle for long.

I thought I would take the time though to update you on not just the fairy this time. I’ve been hinting at other projects I’ve been working on. Smaller things that are more portable and quicker things that can be done in a sitting. So I am going to update on it all today.

First for you is the latest update on the fairy. She is coming along nicely, slowly, but surely lol. It’s usually at this point in a project like this that I start to get frustrated and am tempted to put it to the side. I am not letting myself do that, even if I only get a few stitches in here and there throughout the day, I am determined to get something done on it daily. So here she is…


Next thing I have been working on, is an amigarumi dragon for a friend’s grandson. He’s only a body so far, but I plan on trying to get the rest knocked out this week.

My more portable stitching project has been a stylized peacock pattern done in something called “bargello”. It’s actually fairly simple, and if it turns out like the picture, I will be happy with it. It will be the front pocket of a small bag, which I also love, because I just don’t think you can have too many bags lol.

Last but not least is something I made for myself. A cute little bracelet from a pattern I modified. I am happy with how it came out.

 There now that I got the pictures to upload properly… ish… lol I will close this out. 

Keep smiling, keep crafting, stay cool, stay hydrated and I’ll see you all next week! 😀

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
