I was gonna wait until tomorrow to post this topic, but I'm so excited to tell you... I can't wait.
Last week I mentioned I was going to try my hand at a little glass pendant making.
Well, I think I'm getting the hang of it...
Bob Ross had Happy Little Trees, and these happy little crafts are making my week.
In fabric news, a have a new attachment (actually is was a quilting-set of four) for my sewing machine so I thought I would make a quilted spring-colored table runner for my dining room. This may take awhile...mostly because I don't have a pattern - I'm kind of making things up as i go - But also cuz im fairly convinced that quilting isn't one of my gifts. It makes me cuss.
On the needles I've started a tea-pot cozy from a Crochet With Raymonds pattern (a blogger I originally found on Tangled Happy - which is a GREAT compilation blog on yarn-craft).
To be honest, I like knitting but it isn't my favorite yarn craft (I only cuss when purling.)
However, I'm going to love making the flowers for the top. I'm going to look at it like a marathon...knitting is the running 26-miles part, but crocheting the flowers will be the pasta feast before the race is finished.
I'm so grateful that spring, summer and fall come after winter. Those are my three favorite months.
Winter is...well... winter; pretty in its own right but so ding-dang frigid. The way I figure, when it's so cold outside that even your teapot needs to dress warm, she might as well be adorned in cheery attire.
That's the plan for this month - to surround myself with spring-type make-ables until the temps rise to at least 65 degrees. Then it will be time to tend the garden again...
Ah, the garden...now that is my favorite thing...but let's not count the tomatoes before they hatch.
Don't forget to stop by (and tell a friend!) tomorrow afternoon to see what I'm giving away!
