I am really enjoying having a mini make on the side of a big project. I have finished both my granny a day blankets from 2012 (am yet to take some good photos of them for a proper post - but there is a picture here) which took an age but I'm still making little squares for the Make for anyone blanket, another 'big' project. I need to stop running blankets on the side! They take too flipping long!
I seem to be posting my makes more often on instagram than actually blogging. It's fun using #crochet and knowing that someone, somewhere has seen something that you made. That's really why I started the old blog, to post my makes. You can follow me @amysinsta
I've started something else now, a doll, although I still have quite a few unfinished objects hanging around. One of the many amazing reasons our new house is so great is that one of the rooms is MINE. Yes, mine for craft! I've got all my books, my papers, my yarn, my supplies everything that Gwyn refers to as 'MY CRAP' in one place ready for me to make stuff.
Sadly it is in fact that extra room that not only houses MY CRAP at the moment but all the OTHER CRAP THAT HAS NO HOME. I've got big plastic boxes of WIRES in here. They don't have anything to do with me but there is nowhere else for them to go. They sit sadly next to the big ugly plastic boxes of different yarns. Next on my list of things to get this place is a shed so that all the OTHER CRAP THAT HAS NO HOME can relocate to new premises. Then I will set about making this place look a bit more inspiring, less 'storage' and more 'styled'. In the meantime I have a hell of a lot of paperwork in piles on the floor in here which I really need to deal with, I have piles of Ruby's drawings, bills, bank statements, Gwyn's paperwork, stacks of old annuals (which I am supposed to be turning into bunting), bags of material, stuff for the charity shop. I have some photo albums of my dads, 4 huge piles of cookery books, bin bags of shredding. I've just cleared more of the rubbish in our bedroom out. Guess where it's heading? Am I giving you a headache yet? It's hurting my head just writing this out.
I am hopeful. After Mental May June is looking alot more low key so I might just get on top of this little room.
