Finished Mira’s Blanket!

It's been a long time coming but I finally finished Mira's blanket! She's 14 months old, but it's better than my track record with Evie's blanket which still isn't finished. I really love the 30 for 30 crafting challenge because it's making me pick up projects that I haven't been wanting to work on. I'm so glad to be able to tick this off my list. Now I'm moving onto Evie's blanket. I have had all the squares finished for months but it's the joining that's been holding me up, that and the inevitable weaving of ends that will have to happen. I wish I could go back ... Read More

August Challenges

CraftingGeek is doing another 30 for 30 Crafting Challenge for August. We're onto day 4 now and I am almost done with my first project. During the June 30 for 30 Crafting, I did a lot on Mira's blanket but I ran into some technical difficulties and didn't work on it for a bit. Now everything is figured out and I'm back on track and determined to get it finished. I just have a little bit more of the border to do and then the ends to weave in. I should be done this week. I switched around projects a lot last time and I want to try to focus on one project for a bit. ... Read More

30 for 30 Crafting Challenge Done!

I made it through the 30 for 30 crafting challenge and I'm pretty proud of what I've accomplished! I finished the French knot color wheel. This became my main focus for awhile and I'm really excited to have finished it during the 30 days. I didn't work on Evie's blanket at all but I'm almost done with Mira's. This is the hardest to see a lot of progress on, but I've done 4 rows around. I have 4 more rows and then a border and I'm finished. I still have a few more designs to stitch up and a lot of hexagons to make, but it made good progress on the Wild ... Read More

French Knot Color Wheel

I have always loved the look of projects consisting entirely of French knots but they always seemed like they would take way more patience than I have. About 6 weeks ago I had the idea to make a French knot color wheel using a 3" hoop. I figured that it wouldn't be as much of an undertaking working with a tiny hoop. Let me tell you, it still took a long, long time. I worked on it pretty diligently for a few weeks and then set it aside. The 30 for 30 crafting challenge inspired me to pick it back up and finish it. I started focusing all my efforts on it and finally ... Read More

WIP Wednesday – 30 for 30 Progress

I am absolutely loving this 30 for 30 crafting challenge! I have so many projects I lost interest in working on that I do really want to finish, but I have a hard time choosing them over the more exciting current projects I'm working on. But 30 minutes is such a short amount of time, I can easily set aside a half hour to work on one of these poor neglected projects. I laid out a list of the projects I planned to resurrect and I've been making good progress! The French knot color wheel is my new focus. I really want to get it done so I have been working on it the ... Read More

30 for 30 Crafting

I craft for way more than 30 minutes a day, but I still feel like this #30for30crafting challenge that Jess from The Crafting Geek set up will be extremely beneficial for me. When talking about my creative process I mentioned losing momentum on projects and leaving them unfinished. This happens way more than I wish it did, so I'm going to use this challenge as an opportune to revive some of them. For at least 30 minutes a day I will set aside my current project and pick up one of these almost finished WIP. Evie's blanket I finished all the squares for this months ... Read More
