New idea! Slight change of plans, but since I'm still in the planning stage, it works out. Still have houseguests so I'm not crafting as much as usual. Plus, I actually got three books read last week! That hasn't happened since I went into uber-craft mode two years ago...
I'm glad you liked everything! The fabric on the hoop I actually painted AFTER I'd embroidered it, it was nerve-wracking because I've never painted fabric before! I do like the way it turned out, though, and I think I'll be doing a lot more of it in the future!
That style grocery sack can hold 4 2-Liter bottles, or two whole gallons of milk. I love mine and use them ALL the time, and even though I mostly keep the "rejects", they've held up well. Also completely machine washable.
Prompt: July Mob - UFO Team: Textbook Event: Yarnology Bonus Points: Project Name: Heart! Brief Description: This heart was started for Ludi waaaaaaaay back two (?) IYPs ago. I ended up sending her the one I'd already completed, and figured that some day I'd finish "mine". Well, you know how it goes, it's hard to work on things that are just for you, so it sat and sat and sat. For the record, I was about 2/3rds of the way up the body of the heart three days ago. I knitted through Ghost Shark, Sharknado 1 and 2, Sand Sharks, Avalanche Sharks and Jurassic Shark to finish it! Thank goodness for bad SyFy movie marathons! Project Picture:
Finally started really looking at things and I'm discarding ideas as fast as I come up with them... hopefully something settles soon. I think being stressed about a different swap that I need to get done first is swap-blocking me.
I need some peace and crafting time, and that's just not happening right now. But tonight is Sharknado 2 (don't judge me!) and hopefully that will relax me and de-stress me a little!
Oooooh, interesting! I need to get back to crafting, I took a break this week to rest up and was looking forward to a weekend of all-out crafting, but life has a way of throwing you curve balls and unexpected company and things that need to be done are going to put me behind. Thank goodness for a long crafting period, looks like I might need it if things keep interrupting me!
And I was so looking forward to trying out some of my ideas...
Oh well, back to the very unglamorous and at all exciting task of scrubbing the bathroom. :/
today's the day and I'm already chickening out. I am doubting my paint color choice. this always happens to me.
It's just paint. The absolute worst thing that might happen is that you paint over it. No harm, no foul. Go for it! You'll be happy you did!
All the rooms in my house are very colorful, after years of apartment living I wanted color! I've only really disliked what I picked once, and it wasn't a huge deal to re-do it. Definitely worth it vs not having color!
