Well, well....new year and more crafty goodness to be done. More felt, more knitting and more sewing. My craft room is getting closer to my moving in. The walls and woodwork are done, except the doors and closets. I'm planning furniture and flooring at the moment. Hubby and I have decided we just have to throw some money and time on it. The last few days we have been cleaning up the house and organizing the chaos that happens when you are working all the time. I hope to working more with my friend Layla and Lilapod. My Mom bought me the above book for my birthday. I've been waiting until Monday to start working through it. I'm not good with this type of stuff, but I'm going to try and have a good time with it. I hope to post what I manage to do and blogs and stuff I encounter more in the future.
That being said I have been so motivated by this blog Attic24 that I have pulled out the Rowan Handknit Cotten I've had for my amigurumi (see cat duck in the photo on my profile). I'm using it to make her hexagon blanket. I've had this idea for ages, and I was glad to use her pattern to get it going. It looks so pretty and I'm just playing with the colors I have. (OK, I did have to buy a few more.....but I bought most of them on sale!!!)
Hopefully pictures in the future. Sun is hard to come by this time of year, so the first thing I'm making in my new room will be a light box!!!!
