Sew Crafty... Saturday?
Sorry I was not able to find time to post this yesterday. It was a very busy day.
Even though I did a lot of crafting this past week, it was mostly on works in progress and finishing these crocheted snowflakes. I have had it in mind for some time that I wanted to crochet some snowflakes for family members, so this year I finally did it. I am not skilled or fast at crocheting with thread, nor do I enjoy it as I do crocheting with yarn. I am really disappointed with my efforts, but I did finish 12 snowflakes. Here are three of them.
I’m also disappointed with my photography efforts. I took 3 different pictures, but this one (which is not very good or clear -- and that may be a good thing!) is the best of the three. I do apologize for its poor quality.
I’m continuing to work on embroidering day-of-the-week flour sack dish towels. I have 3 left to go, but one of those is nearly finished.
And I’m also working on some family photo ornaments like those I shared last week. I now have all of the photos transferred to fabric. Someone suggested that I try doing the captions with the computer as well, and I think that’s a great idea and have begun the process of doing that.
What about your crafting efforts? Are you doing some crafty decorations or gifts for Christmas? Then join Shereen and her readers at Waiting for Him and share your projects. Shereen and others will be eager to see what you have to share. Happy Crafting!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
