If you're here from the Blogathon, welcome! I hope you enjoy your visit!
Like my profile says, I'm a quilter, a knitter, and a spinner. Lately, knitting socks and making bags have become a bit of an obsession for me. I'm still quilting a bit, but very slowly. I am getting the urge to make some applique Christmas wall hangings after seeing the awesome one my friend Val made (hi Val!)
I set some crafting goals for myself for 2014. The first one was to knit 14 pairs of socks in 2014. I'm working on my 13th pair; this is actually the fourth pair I started but I didn't start the second sock until this month.
It's almost finished! I started the decreases for the toe today, so I'll probably finish it tomorrow.
My second goal this year was to finish the strippy quilt I started a couple of years ago.
It's stalled out for now. I still need to sew strips together, but just can't seem to find the motivation to do it. I'd like to start something else, but this keeps staring at me to finish! Somehow I don't think I'll meet this goal.
My third goal this year was to put together my Cricket Loom and actually weave something. Hasn't happened yet, but the year isn't over!
I've been making little bags lately. I was working on this one earlier.
I finished it, and decided to try adding a charm for the zipper pull. I had picked up some clasps, jump rings and charms at Michaels last week, and put one together for the bag.
Then I went back to a finished bag and added this one.
I really like the way they look, so I'm going to make another trip to Michaels to get more charms.
This post turned out to be longer than I thought! If you made it this far YAY! I hope you enjoyed it!
Please feel free to comment, I love reading them!
