Weekly (ish) Craft Update – Monday October 26, 2015

Okay, I did promise that I would get back to this as soon as I could. And I’m trying.

I have also been trying to craft, to mis-quote the Starks, “Christmas is Coming!!” (but said with nearly as much panic)…

Now, I mentioned before, if you see something here and it shows up under your tree or in your mail, act surprised, please. *giggles*

First and foremost, the fairy really hasn’t been touch in months, which makes me rather sad, but now that we are getting more and more settled into our new living arrangements, and this semester is almost over *whew* I’m hoping that I might be able to get back into a routine of at least getting a few stitches in every day. I apologize for her wrinkles, she’s been folded into my bag thingy for a few months.

I have been crocheting a lot more though, since that is a slightly more portable craft, and with ballet season in full swing, portability has been the name of the game.

I finished this ripple afghan a couple weeks ago, it’s my first ripple and the first few rows got FROG’d a few times (rip-it, rip-it) BUT I finally got the hang of it (and learned to carry a notepad to keep up with counts) and i’m happy with the results. It’s definitely a lap-ghan, it’s not quite big enough for much else.

Then, thanks to my subscription service, I got a kit to make a yarn ball holder. I’ve seen them in stores, made of everything from fiber to ceramic, but I thought it would be a cute thing to try. This is the one that came with the kit, not completely finished (still needs decoration and a few finishing touches) but, you get the idea.

So, of course, now inspired, I decided to try with some yarn from my stash, and trying to make it slightly larger, so far it’s working, I’m up to the decreases for the top, but this is how it’s coming along…

Last but not least, the Bargello patterned bag front has been complete and had it’s edges finished, just need to sew it onto the bag. I know, I know, too many unfinished things, but that’s what happens when stuff gets packed up lol

That is it for today, I think. lol

Keep smiling, keep crafting, keep supporting your small business crafters (my Etsy is here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ImpishCreations) and remember this (I found this meme the other day, and loved it…)

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
