Summer finally seems to have arrived in Auckland which is awesome – however it is getting harder to stay inside and craft in the evenings. With Daylight Savings having kicked in, we’re enjoying daylight up until around 8pm at the moment which means I want to squeeze more into the day before I snuggle down into the couch with a project for the evening.
I have had time however to whip up a Crocheted Christmas Tree, and it was so fun, quick and easy I decided it was the perfect project for my very first tutorial. Pop over and have a look – any feedback is welcome, it is actually rather time consuming writing these up!
As well as the happy diversion of the Christmas tree, I’ve been gearing up for the next markets, which are on both days this weekend. Birkenhead Artisan Market on Saturday, and Devonport Craft Market on Sunday. Once again I’m finding it hard to stay focused – I keep getting new ideas for gift tags, or onesie designs, or greeting cards… And in the middle of all of this I’m trying very hard to build up enough photos and text to finally start up a Facebook page.
So there is a lot going on, and yet it feels like I don’t have much to show for all of the busy-ness! Oh well – there’s always time for a little bit of a look through Handmade Monday to see what clever folk from around the world have been up to. Happy crafting people!
