Yep, I started quilting. I have never been good with a sewing machine, but I got given one for my birthday earlier this year (at my request). I'm attempting the Sampler Quilt from the Art Of Quilting magazine, that I spent approximately a year collecting before I dared to start sewing. I have to say, I thoroughly enjoy quilting, except for the pressing. Why does ironing have to suck the fun out of everything?! I have been buying up a storm this year, and have already acquired a large pile of fabric, so expect quite a few sewing posts this year :)
Now here is a craft I am a little better versed in; crochet. Check out Bella Coco, her fab You Tube clips break it all down so that even the most elementary of crocheters can master a granny square ad create a beautiful blanket. I am in the process of crocheting a granny square blanket as well as a family snuggle blanket. Stay tuned, but don't wait with abated breath for pics of the finished products, I am the master of the UFOs! I have partially completed projects dating back 20 years or so!
My original craft! I first learned to knit when I was 4, my great grandmother taught me. I still remember the first little dusky pink patch I knitted with her. This particular scarf was the bane of my life while I knitted it. Compared to crochet, knitting seems to take so long! Mind you, this scarf was approximately 40 stitches wide, and longer than my 4 year old is tall :) My two older daughers were putting in orders for winter gear, so I was knitting scarves and beanies like there was no tomorrow.
Well, there you have it! A few projects I have been working on this year. Thanks so much for stopping by!
