Crochet-a-long with @sugarbeecrafts and @733blog, you in?

UntitledI’m trying hard to use the materials I have on hand for a few reasons. The first being that I have so much and it’s become a little intimidating. The second and equally if not more important, the more I use the less I have to move when the time comes.¬† I found this Crochet-A-Long and decided that this would be a good push to get through some materials.

Project Crochet, a crochet-a-long hosted by Kim of 733 Blog, Heather of Twin Dragonfly Designs, and Mandy of Sugar Bee Crafts, is on like Donkey Kong. I don’t have big projects to do, but I have enough small ones to keep me busy for the month and beyond. It’s a good month for it. Sure the Olympics are on, but that doesn’t take any real focus from me. And we’re going on a road trip.

I like a challenge and I’ll try to stick this one out. Saturday, I posted one of the projects as part of Saturday Morning Command Center¬† which I ended up finishing over the weekend. Now to decide which of my little friends turning 6 it will go to!

The pink yarn? Got wrapped back up into a ball for now. It’ll speak to me and tell me what it wants to be.


Working on…

I’m working on a post of helpful hints when sewing that probably exists in no less than 153,295,369 places already on the internet, but I’ll have my thoughts which so very few people have.

In the mean time, I thought I’d share some of the latest work I’ve been doing:

currently unnamed

nanny bag


The Nanny Bag was a project with Sue and the Unnamed will have a name come the end of September. (Not me, but a dear friend.) This last one is just something I was playing with and think is adorable. I’m also making a dress and a couple of skirts that I’ll post photos of soon! They’re in various stages of being finished.

What are you working on these days?
