The mornings have been spent in the craft room, having a really good sort out and working on projects. This is the area for which I want to share my five on Friday. Five crafting moments that I want to enjoy looking back on.
Number one is the sorting out of the yarn, a mammoth task. There are so many charities looking for oddments that I decided to have a sort out. I have sorted some of the yarn into specific projects bags that I am working on, reorganised the chest and bagged up loads of oddments to be given to an old peoples home locally who are knitting for the homeless.
Number two is pattern selection. I have sat and browsed past crochet magazines and pattern books and have now made a list and ear marked some of the projects I want to do as gifts for the new babies. Decisions, decisions... There is of course some little gifts that need to be made to be sent to Santa too.
Thirdly I want to share a couple of projects that I have finished this week. My lounge room needs a little up lifting so I have made a start and completed a cushion cover. I love the colour of the yarn, a real Autumnal look and the vintage button is the perfect finish.
I have also completed a blanket for the nursery that fits in with the theme of teddy bears, already for the new babies to visit.
Whilst sorting out all the yarn in the craft room I came across an abandoned project from a couple of years ago. So my fourth crafting moment of the week is that I have decided that this will become my winter project. The project that I work on through out the winter. A throw/blanket for the lounge.
Finally I have been working on some little gifts to take with me to Florida. We have many friends that we have made over the years and love to meet up with them. A little gift is always greatly appreciated. Biscuits are a must and little something that I have made.
I had a pile of toppers made so simply added them to some notelets and tied them with raffia for a professional finish.
Well I had to embellish a pen to go with them, the perfect combination. Only another five sets to go.
Five things on Friday from my craft room. I am once again joining Amy over at Love Made My Home for the weekly meme, pop on over and join in the fun.
As always thank you so much for your comments on my previous post, I love to hear from you and am always humbled by such positive and enthusiastic comments. Hope you all have a great weekend. I have my eldest daughter and her little family visiting this weekend so I am busy getting things ready for Wilbur.
See you soon.
