Are you sitting down?
I have actually done a little bit of crafting!! When I was in Germany the other week I cut out a couple of projects and I even got round to sewing one of them.
OK - so I can sew these quite quickly without needing to follow any instructions. They're incredibly easy to make and very handy as gifts!!
I rationalised not getting round to the blue fabric in a number of ways (I was very busy for the whole two weeks I was in Germany!)... but at least I have a project cut out and ready to go next time I'm there! After all, deciding what to make and getting all the pieces cut out and interfaced is half the battle, isn't it?!
I got back to St. Louis last week after an eventful trip (I got stranded in Chicago for the night). Now I'm just about over the jet-lag and yesterday I decided it was time to start some crochet.
I've had this 100% silk yarn in my stash for about 18 months - it was always intended for a scarf / stole / shawl for me, but I was being indecisive about the pattern. I've opted for one I've made before as a present for someone else rather than tackling a new pattern. I'm looking forward to working on this - it's my first major crochet project since the osteopath fixed my neck / arm, so I'm going to try to take it easy!
