I have a lot of complaints with winter, but looking on the bright side, it’s a great time for crafting. I’ve been bitten by the craft bug lately, and working on all kinds of projects here and there when I get a chance. (Speaking of which — Happy MLK Jr Day! I get the day off and it’s a snow day make-up day for my son’s school, so I have a free crafting day at home!)
Knitting – Paraphernalia socks. I love this pattern, I love the gentle color changes of the yarn, and I love wearing handknit wool socks when it’s freezing outside. I haven’t knit socks in years, but these socks + Mad Men on Netflix = my happy place.
Sewing – I joined the Scrappy Log Cabin quilt-along on Instagram (#scrappylogcabinqal)and stole a bunch of fabric scraps from my sister. I’m loving the colors and I’m really excited about all the different layout options with this quilt block pattern. My goal is to make one square each weekend day, although I can actually make them faster in batches, so I am probably going to shot for 4 blocks every two weeks. I’d love to have it ready to send out for quilting by my birthday in March, but that might be a little ambitious.
Scrapbooking – I finished my 2014 Project Life album, except for a few photos I need to get from other people, and a page to remember my grandpa, who passed away on Thanksgiving Day.
