it's almost two months since I updated here. well, I'll just have to fix that.
I must say that these last two months have been a giant blur. I haven't gotten much done at all!
(okay, I do have to admit that I did do a craft sale, and I made a million Christmas treats for the family, and I actually managed to get a small number of cards sent out to friends and family - with the small caveat that I didn't have a letter or remarkably personal note added to them - but they left my hands with postage on the envelopes, so that's a HUGE deal for me)
I feel a lot like I've hit a brick wall, crochet wise. and really crafting in general. I put the hooks down about three weeks ago and didn't pick them up for any serious work until a couple of days ago when my son lost his mittens. new pair whipped out lickety split and he really loves that I used the same colors as his missing pair.
my youngest girl and I have been collaborating on some rings as of late. I have a few listed on etsy, but we do have several more. a couple of them I've been waiting on the adhesive to set fully before going any further and so, although I've caught up on a lot of laundry over the last week, I really feel like I haven't done anything worth while.
button rings are becoming a big deal and so we've been having fun making them. I just need to photograph some more of them.
but if they don't sell on etsy I will have them along with for my next craft fairs. and the next one I will be bringing my youngest too, she did help make these rings and I am allowing her to have the profits from the sales of the rings.
I've made nests before. I've turned them into earrings and a necklace that I kept for myself. I just think they are adorable.
I am working on some new lace. I know I said I was going to do that last year but I gave up. really I don't know that I totally gave up. more just researching laces and finding my own lacy zen, ya know
so I am working on a piece right now. moving ahead and pulling apart and moving ahead and again pulling apart. I'm going to get this and it's going to be breath taking. (I hope)
