As the trials an tribulations of pool ownership continue, investigation commence into how to prevent the neighbour’s back yard washing into ours next time there’s a storm, and the excitement of the ensuite/WIR renovation extends a week longer than scheduled, I’ve been dipping my toe into crafty waters. Just one toe, and not very deeply, but it’s a start.
So I thought I’d do another bloggy exercise to get those crafting brain cells firing: the WIP update.
Just the arms to do. I’ve not gone to art classes for two weeks, and probably won’t make it this week, so hopefully I can get back to it next week.
Double Trouble Baby Blankets:
Still waiting for me to add the binding, but not that the craft room is tidy I have room to set up the sewing machine.
I got this far before moving house. Not sure if I should add more and/or if I should put some of the same stitching on the matching skirt. Part of the reason I’m hesitating is that I’m not sure I like how I’ve finished the stitching at the back. The ends kept working their way out again so I’ve knotted them, and it looks messy. But who cares what it looks on the inside, eh?
Two Heddle Leno Scarf:
Haven’t touched it since the move. I’m not liking how it’s wider at the beginning and I’m thinking of unweaving and starting again. I’ve not had trouble with weaving pulling in at the edges this much before, and I’m guessing it’s because the yarn is slippery silk.
The Art Necklace:
What art necklace?
Kogin Tissue Cosy:
I’ve worked on this little kit three times now, and it has proved to be a good interesting-but-not-too-challenging project for evenings of post-house move/reno exhaustion.
My travel craft project. Went to Brisbane with me.
Another travel project. Not on the WIP list in the sidebar because I always have one on the go.
Finishing these projects seems achievable now that I’ve spent a little time thinking about what I need to do. I just need to make time to do it – and not get distracted by new project ideas and gardening.
Have to say, being stuck on ADSL internet speeds makes blogging about craft a test patience.
