I was kinda worried when I got my partner cuz I'm a crocheter....she's a crocheter....buuttttt.  I've done some stalking and then some shopping and tonight I'm doing some crafting! I have a pretty cool plan i think, that I hope goes smoothly. Yay!!!

That doesn't matter sometimes right - since often I find as a crafter of _(insert whatever craft you do)_, that often I make for others and unless I make one at the same time for me, I don't bother/forget myself - or even if it is the same craft, it is different styles, techniques, foci, etc.

That is true onyxnox, I barely ever craft for myself.  Even if I find something I love it gets pushed back farther and farther.  Hey!!!  Were you flooded??

I really can't remember the last time I crocheted something just for me! so no worries there Mama'  Smiley

I'm home now until Sunday and then I'll be gone again for a few days. Hoping to make some good progress before I have to go back!

Yes - I made a scarf for myself last year, and was so proud that I was finally making it for myself - except a swap came around and I thought that it was a perfect match for my partner so I sent it to her.  I started another for me, and it is 15% done and has been sitting on the corner of my work table since October - go figure.

That weather was just strange on Monday.  We got hard and heavy rain for about 15 minutes, and then it died down to a thunderstorm with steady showers, but not overly heavy.  The lights flickered for a bit, and that was it.  I was stunned when I saw the news later that evening and saw someone canoeing on the Gardiner Expressway, cars in water up to the roof, and heard about the problems with transit.  Did you see the video someone posted from a GO train, with the flooding, and the snake swimming in the water, inside the train?  Some friends and family immediately West of us lost power for about 4-5 hours, but it was back on before midnight.  However, I just got an e-mail from a friend of mine in the West end of the city, between High Park and the Lakeshore.  They still don't have power back on, and the generator for their complex died - they are having a rough go of it, especially since she is on the 10th floor or so of their condo.  Hopefully it is just a fuel issue and they get refueled or the power comes back on.

Seriously, how am I supposed to narrow this down to one item when there are several I really want to make!!  Undecided

Isn't that what extras are for Wink

I have crocheted items on my Pinterest too, and crocheting is my main talent.  I know I'll never get around to doing them, but I want them, so....

I was FINALLY able to stalk my partner this morning and went out and got the craft supplies I need to start.  I'm just going to finish up a package for the July OPS swap and I'll start on this one, probably tomorrow.

So DH and I took the dogs out together and I treated us to breakfast out together, and since we got home, I have been almost exclusively in the craft room working on the remainder of the main item, and one extra for this swap.  Since Monday, there has been moistening, cutting, filing, pressing, hammering, sewing, etc all happening to make an idea that came to me in my sleep, and sketched out in my sketchbook come to fruition.  So far, I am liking how it looks - but keep fingers crossed, because one final, but vital element can ruin it - and that would be whether the adhesive I chose works or not!

If it does work, then I just need to make one more extra, which I feel is a complementary and vital addition to the main, and must be made - then I can send out!

Every time I think I've decided what I want to make, I look at the list again and change my mind.  I am going to lock in on something tonight and start on it tomorrow.  I do intend to get an extra or two in there, but I want to get my "one item" finished first.

Not quite sure what to make yet, I'm hoping that browsing her pinterest a bit more will inspire me.
