This past week was filled with way too many craft disasters. The sweater makeover I started last weekend did not work at all. Thankfully I didn’t ruin the sweater so I can try something else with it another day. I also worked on a few upcoming projects, each one resulting in frustration and multiple trips to the craft store for more supplies. This week knitting, crochet, and embroidery were far from relaxing. Unfortunately all of these mistakes happened when a few minutes of creative time would have been appreciated. Oh well. I learned from my slip-ups and hopefully this weekend will be much more productive. The cheerful colors in these photos have already lifted my spirits. Here’s what I have planned…
– Since last weekend’s sweater makeover idea didn’t work, I am putting it aside and starting with something new. If all goes as planned (fingers crossed!) I think it will be really cute. Hopefully I can share it with you next week!
– After multiple redoes, I started fiddling with a new crochet project last night. I’m not sure what it will become, but I like the blue color.
– I can’t wait to bake these jam-filled buttermilk biscuits for breakfast tomorrow.
– Even though the last thing I need is another project, throughout all of my craft failures this week I wished I had a big, relaxing, blanket project to work on. I broke down and went to Michael’s this afternoon to get some yarn for the Giant Granny Square Blanket from Purl Bee. I have been itching to start for months now and I am just going to do it!
If you had a rough week I hope you have some time to relax or work on something you enjoy. What are you up to this weekend?
