I've been crafting like mad for the past 7 months or so, and I love every second of it. I honestly can't remember what my life was like before I filled it to the brim with crafty goodness. I owe much of my recent re-entrance into the world of crafts to craftgrrl so don't forget to check that out!
Hopefully this journal will be bursting with ideas and projects and whatnot from now on. I do have a digital camera so pictures should be included in every post (unless they'd be irrelevant, or I'm feeling lazy) so without further ado, one of my current projects:
I just taught myself how to crochet this weekend. I'm having a blast. My first real project will be to make a little lap blanket. I've decided to go ahead and contine making granny squares in the lime green and purple combination. The dark green and purple doesn't look right (even in person). And the lime green and purple is funky without being too hideous. I might introduce other colors into it as well. Haven't figured out the exact pattern I should use in putting the squares together. I first figured just an every other checkerboard type thing would work, but once I thought about the possibilities and how endless they are, I realized I'd better hold off until I find something I really love. I'll probably work with MS Paint and try to figure something out.
So that's what I'm all excited about this week. And I should probably try to wrap up some other projects I've started, but I'll talk more about those later. (When I can post pictures!)
