That weekend flew by! It was really rather quiet, craft-wise – my poor husband was laid up with a migraine, and I spent a bit of time with him in solidarity. It actually would have been a prime time to get upstairs and get sewing, but I just wasn’t feeling it.
One thing I did achieve was to write up my tutorial for a “jolly jar”, please do go and have a peek and let me know what you think. I also finally started work on a sock donkey, using a kit by Lucy Patterson. My sister bought the kit from the Devonport Craft Market months ago with the intention of getting her craft on and making one for her 2 year old son, and then never found the mojo. I’ve been guardian of the kit for the last couple of months, and finally found the quiet time to sit down and get started. The kit is so user friendly and easy to follow – however I’m a bit embarrased that my first attempt at a sock donkey is a bit on the lumpy side. I think I’ll keep this guy to practise the techniques and eventually absorb him into my own collection, and will make a much more robust donkey for my nephew once I have perfected it. Hopefully it will be a case of the whole being greater than the sum of it’s parts!
Somehow I need to get from this:
As promised, I completed by “7 days of crafty” post yesterday, which should hopefully keep me on track for the week of crafting ahead of me. Now I’m heading over to Handmade Monday (#100, yahoo!) to see what the other clever folk have been up to.
