Believe me, it was harsh but totally worth it. I have been quite productive lately. Especially late night. I cannot put the blame on any one person in this household. But she wears a diaper! It’s just too tempting for little hands when I break out the paper, glue, beads, wire, knitting needles, tape, scissors… And who can blame her? Crafting is fun. Though “fun” would not be how I’d describe last nights antics.
I started working on the Valentine’s for Jody’s party:
And a close up:
Each one is slightly different than the next. All are made with papers by Daisy D’s. I am not completely done yet though. I plan on adding ric rac, lace, ribbon, buttons, and jewels.
I also had some time to do a little beading. I made myself a bracelet which I named “The Blues”:
It’s made with blue, grey and white freshwater baroque and button pearls.
I also finished the first of the Endpaper Mitts. They are a bit snug, but I’m hoping they will loosen up a bit once I soak them and block them. I also started “Hush” but to my dismay there is either a pattern error, or quite possible user error. I bought some pretty pearl colored beads for the sweater as well. Now if I could just figure out this once lace row. (I’m missing a decrease somehow.)
And some exciting news, (maybe exciting just for me)…I’ve decided to design my first pair of socks. I have already done both the swatch and pattern gauge. Now onto actually knitting them. Wish me luck.
