Mr Glitterwitch often says that our spare room has more wool than a wool shop, and so I thought it was time to have a rummage through and use something up. This is what I found at the back of the wardrobe:
Ah, yes I remember buying that, (a few years ago), the colours remind me of the seaside and I was going to make beach bags with it. Right, 3 balls of each left - what can I make to use them up? I know I will practice my new skill of crocheting wagon wheel hexagons.
What do you think? I love them; they are quick and easy and make a lovely portable project to take with me when I travel by train. So, full of enthusiasm, over the last week I have made lots and lots of these.
Bang! then it hit me - oh my goodness what have I done. Many of you will know that the one thing I detest about crafting is sewing up! I love making things, but absolutely hate sewing them up - probably because I am not very good at it. So here I am merrily making literally hundreds of this hexagons which I will now have to join together ........ Come back next week for a progress report.
Now, just to be contrary, I do love sewing beads together! So here are some beaded snowflakes that have also been on my (beading) needle this week.
Well that's all for this week - I will leave you with this thought:
My biggest fear is that when I die, my husband will sell my craft materials for what I told him they cost!
