52 Crafts in 52 Weeks – Week Twenty Two


 
Hello everyone!  If you have been wondering where I have been these past few weeks, you need not fear.  I have not decided to quit blogging, I have just been way too busy crafting, shopping and visiting to be able to write anything at all! 

My grandmother stayed with us for a week last week, and whenever she comes we find ourselves caught up in talking all things crafty and visiting wonderful places together. 

Last Wednesday we had a girl’s day in town – just the four of us (Granny, Mom, Nancy and I) browsed through material shops and craft shops and then enjoyed coffee together.  We had such fun and were able to get quite a few new goodies to add to our collections...

But in amongst our busyness, I have at least managed to try quite a few new projects!  As Granny is a wonderful knitter, I asked her to show me a few new stitches and help me to make something sweet. 

I decided on giving the knitted mouse in the October 2012 issue of Ideas Magazine a try...


Although I wouldn’t call myself  a passionate knitter, I am very proud of myself for finishing and actually enjoying a knitting project.  I will even confess that I am quite hooked now, especially after Granny bought me a gorgeous book on knitting teddy bears!

What have you been up to lately?
