Making all the things

 


Hello again.

I’ve been inspired by the time that I now have.  The Little Gamer has gone back to school and I’ve got the itch to make things.

This means pinterest.  The rabbit hole that steals hours of time away from you.  I now have a list about as long as my arm of projects.  Will they come to be?  Probably not.

In other news.  Once I get my act together, there will be a HUGE update to the etsy shop with a bunch of new products.  Squee.  Now where’s my camera.

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose

I began a project recently using yarn I had in my stash.  It was going along wonderfully.  Then I ran out of a colour.  That’s ok I thought, I’ll just get some more.  Wrong.  In the 8 months since I purchased the yarn, the colour has been discontinued.  After rummaging through the available yarn to find something suitable to finish the project, we found one.  All good, until we discovered it doesn’t come in the ply I need. Gah.

In disgust I’ve put what I’ve done, in a box to be dealt with when I’m less annoyed.

Here’s the project parts.

So after all that, there are eighty squares in total that need to be joined.  With what?  I don’t know.

M.I.A. again.

 

Yes I know.  It’s been months.  In fact the new year has ticked over since the last post.  It’s just we got busy with everything.  Kids, school, school holidays, travel, families, Christmas…  you know the stuff.

So we’ve been doing stuff and somehow got tricked into making lunch bags for a friend.  Not my usual craftiness.  This meant The Junior Gamer saw them and insisted she had one for her first day back at school which was the next day.  Sigh.
