Crafting funkPosted: September 1, 2012 | |
Hey there Sunday Projecteers.
It has recently come to my attention that I am feeling myself getting into a crafting funk. And it sucks, a lot. It could possibly be that there has been much buzz recently in life. I started a new job here in my new home of Seattle, not to mention the constant adjustment that has been my life for the last 30 days given the fact that we relocated at the beginning of August. Then there is the fact that I am training 3-4 days a week for the Seattle Iron Girl which takes place next weekend. I have to shower, read, eat and maintain life, my hair and my sanity. So, my creative mind has decided to go kaput.
Have no fear, it hasn’t gone completely awry. I did complete a project (95%) that I have wanted to for a while which was re-painting my furniture. The end table I painted came out awesome, now I am just waiting to get the right hardware for the awesome pull knobs that are being added. I plan on posting this once I finish the other piece of furniture that will be painted. We also just recently got permission to paint our apartment, and this makes me one happy camper. Chevron pattern anyone? Hell yes fantastic accent wall, here we come! So, that’s in the works. The crochet bug bit me once more a couple of weeks ago and I spent a weekend hooking my fingers off. I made an awesome doily for my new end table, started a pair of slippers, and have been working on some very special crocheted flower fascinators for a very good friends wedding in March. Oh, and I took a two-day sewing class. That was cool. It has been a long long time since I touched a sewing machine so it was fun to attempt a new craft. I made an apron. It was pretty neat. There are more classes offered at the location I signed up at, Stitches, and think I just might try my hand at another class coming up. There was an attempt at some awesome newspaper flags, however, I need to figure out a better method, last Sunday and I think that is what has me a little discouraged.
Crafty brain I summons you to come back and flourish! I need you! Let’s hope it comes back soon friends.
In the meantime, here are some of the projects I did while in this little funk….
