Hello lovely people!
There must be a nasty bug going around, or I’m just really tired, but I got a bad cold. I normally never get sick, I think this is the first time I’m properly sick in at least 3 years. Still needed to get to work today so boohoo 😦 maybe tomorrow I can stay home and rest.
I’ve finished earth on my avatar afghan! Still planning on finishing it by the end of the month so I really need to get going!
Still not sure what I’ll do for the border. Any suggestion?
I’ve done more squares as well for my #CraftyCAL, this time I’ve played with a lacy style which gave me bigger squares. I really like them!
I don’t really know where I’m going with this but I enjoy making all different squares in different colours 🙂
Hope you guys are having a great week, free from coughing and sneezing!
The year has most definitely kicked off for me, I was back to work this morning. But on the bright side, it means that I am back to my dedicated evening crafting time (no more impromptu Settlers of Catan game on a Wednesday, let’s leave this madness for the holidays!).
So yesterday we went back to stock up on some crafting goodies (Dylan is making another giant 40k board, it’s going to be awesome) and I found a pyrograph. The great thing is we practically got it for free (new year’s sale I love you).
I’m decorating my yarn crate 🙂
It’s actually harder than it looks, the tool gets really hot so I have to go little by little.
As you may have guessed from the title of this post, we are watching “Avatar, the last air bender” at the moment. I loooove this show! It is one of those cartoons that are good when you are a kid but just get better when you re-watch them. And so in the spirit of Avatar, my first new yarny project of the year: the bending blanket!
I designed the chart for the 4 nations (Air, Water, Earth, Fire) based on the symbols from the show and I’m making a corner to corner blanket. The ends are going to be annoying to weave but hey! It’s all part of the fun!
Have you guys also been inspired by a show/movie you watched or a book you read recently?
