Saving the world, one crafty thing at a time

Month

July 2015

Another project on the go.

I started another. I know I shouldn’t, but I did. I told you I can’t help it hahaha. It’s this year’s Moogly CAL. I’ve opted for similar colours to the first block and plan in using the same colours throughout the rest of the squares (if I can remember where I got the balls from) if I can get them to work out.

I’m making a page for the CAL and it will be updated when I camplete each block.

The block isn’t finished yet but I live the qtr stitch when it’s like this. I’m tempted to make another but stop at this stage and use it as a centre block to another Afghan but adding a round of sc or dc after the qtr. I found it a little tricky to start off with, especially the Jacobs ladder but once I got into the swing of it, I was off.

Its a sad day…

I haven’t been able to do anything today. This, I find, is super sad. Others might think this is silly and not worth an emotion but when you love crafts, love working with yarn and it becomes your therapy, your go to thing to relax, unwind and sometimes a place to hide, it certainly does warrant an emotion.

It feels like may day hasn’t finished. Something is just incomplete,ike I’ve forgotten something. I’ve been to the gym this morning and then spent some quality time with the children and my partner and then all evening, I’ve been in the reading again for my course to which I still have two tests and a report to write, which left me no time to carry on with some of my projects and now I’m so tired I feel like I’m falling asleep as I write this haha. There has been lots of early mornings, late evenings and interrupted sleeps over the last week or so, so tiredness is catching up at bit.

It’s ok. Torrow is the day I finish the crocheted summer dress for my daughter and I can cross it off the list 😁

The not quite yarn bombing, yarn bombing

Last night was the night I ordered so much yarn I got free delivery. Now that might not seem amazine but when the balls cost between 80-99p, it’s quite an impressive amount……I should have it soon, to which my house will become literally bombed with yarn…everywhere. No jokes. The kids think it’s a great game to steal my balls and decorate, like they are on a crazy spring break esque thing with toilet paper haha. I’ll show you my giant new stash when it arrives. Oooo excited much 😉

…drained

So over the last few days I’ve been doing some of my ‘required reading’ for one of my modules for my coursework and today I just had to get a massive section done…I see it as do work first thing and then I have the rest of the day and night to craft.

I get it all done and now I’m trying with all my might to get a project finished for my daughter. It’s a diamond pattern lace dress, but I’m struggling with motivation. I’m almost done but I have to add extra rounds to make it much longer (she’s super tall for a 2yr old) so about another 10 rounds, yep that’s right, making a dress in the round, always fun I say haha. So here it is sat in a pile on my lap, whilst I stare off into oblivion and try not to dose off (loooong ass week, that includes irksome family members and crazy children).

Ignore the pasty legs, they don’t get out often.

Sophie is on the go

17/7 – So I carried on with Sophie last night and I finished part 3 (25 rounds) it turns out I really love and get on with the crab stitch (reverse sc) who knew!! I’ve heard a lot about this stitch and mostly negative in how grim it is to do, but for me, I was able to wip it up in no time. In fact I did it faster than the normal sc. So anyways, here she is at a slightly bigger size of 22″ instead of what the pattern states of just shy of 20″ but oh well 😜 haha

A day in the life…

It takes a long time to photo everything you have and trust me, I’m doing it, I’ve added some new pages, with a few on which will be updated periodically when I complete something relevant to that page, so do keep checking and if you’re never sure, then just ask and I’ll let you know if anything is new in the hooks/needles/sewing machine haha. Be patient with me, I have to do this in between being mauled by animals…I mean looking after my three children 😜

Lots on the go.

So as I may have said, I am in the process of many many projects and sometimes I just keep starting more. I can’t help it. The addiction is getting a little worse. I plan on getting my projects sorted and then I will start taking some pictures for you. They probably won’t be the best as I don’t have a fantastic camera but hey ho they are good enough to see my pieces. Lots and lots to come and I hope you enjoy.

Either way I’ll give you a sneak peek…

So here I am again…..

So…yet again I find myself signing up, downloading, writing…..on another site. The amount of times I’ve been here is a little ridiculous. I want a place where I can show my creativity, what I can do and sometimes maybe have a little rant, but every. single. time I end up just ignoring the thing or giving up because no-one is there to see it. Publicity eh. Well maybe this time it will be different. Uve seen so many others use this so hopefully I can too.

About me, well. I’m me, that’s about it….Haha no not really. I’m a mum of three, one boy and two girls, I’m engaged and getting married summer of 2017 (if I haven’t killed him by then 😜). I’m studying for a bachelor’s in Criminology but have a huge passion (addiction) to crafty things. I love yarn. I mean actually love it. If I see the stuff, I have to buy at least one ball…it’s a curse, it really is. I crochet, sew, knit, draw, make, you name it, I’ve probably tried it once. I’m far too whimsical to the point I find something I want to make, start and suddenly find something else, so I started that too and BOOM!!! I have 20 WIPs (work in progress) on the go, which is kind of where I am today – I think over 15 as it stands and about the same planned already.

I whinge, whine and sometimes full on explode. I don’t k ow people, they don’t get on with me (I’m really quite mean ;)) and being a mum, puts you in that category of weird loner with children. I’m honestly not that bad, but each to their own opinion and whatnot. Anyways, I’m sure I’ll get around to adding pictures of things and other lovelies, maybe a whine or two as well…we’ll see.

* my given name isn’t actually Daisy, it’s a nickname I picked up 😜 but by all means, call me it.
