I have been trying to pack so much in these past few weeks.
I do not know whether the New Year has had an effect, but my head is working overdrive.
I have so many thoughts and makes all buzzing about in my head that trying to get them out of my head and into something I can touch and admire is taking every single waking moment, when i'm not being mum and doing all the everyday mundane. Gosh it's such a juggling act, but I bet many of you know all about that!
I'm currently blocking my motif scarf.
Hopefully, I can get some pictures done at the weekend to show you. I'm pleased with it, although, it's not without its downside, which I shall elaborate on when I get the pics up. Goodness me, at this rate we will be well into spring and i'll have to wait until Autumn comes again!
I have been a busy bee. As I have said, my head has been spinning with ideas. I am impulsive, spontaneous, and usually completely without thought or planning. It's not a good way to be a crafter, but I'm not sure i'll ever change.
I have been playing about with this and that. Lots of bitty bits that are yet to be finished. More scarves i'm in love with......
Playing about with bits and bobs from the Japanese Craft Books I totally love....
I have also had this crochet idea in my head. Something that sprung from doing another project a while back. I put it on the back burner, but lately, the need to begin it grew stronger and stronger, so without much planning, I began. Needless to say, I didn't plan for yarn colours, I just started with whatever I had in my stash.......and very quickly ran out. It's not at any sort of stage I can show yet. I realised quite quickly that my plan to do it on a smaller scale was not going to work, so it's going to take a little longer than expected......but I think i'm going to love, love, love it when it is done. More of that at a later date.
Then, another idea that had been in my head for a couple of years was able to come to fruition thanks to my mum.
A little bit of stitchy love. Goodness me.......I have been loving this. It's a thought that's been in my head for a couple of years and to be able to finally get it from my head into reality is fantastic. It's every bit as good as I had hoped it would be, so that's been keeping me on a bit of a high.
Also, i've been trying to get into the Spring spirit and get ready for Easter. It's been so nice to think of colour on dull, grey days.
Bright colours and Easter goodness have been great cheery uppers!
So, that's just catching up to where I am at the moment. Hopefully, by the weekend I might have a bit more to show for all my time away from the bloggy desk so to speak.
