I am joining Catherine at Saint Cardigan for this post all about some of my work(s) in progress. I narrowed it down to a couple of projects although I have a week’s worth! Once you have had a little look at what I am up to, you can pop over to Saint Cardigan and look at what everyone else has been doing.
This crochet blanket is my second ever and the one I have already completed is pretty much the same, just in lots of colours. As you can see, I am no crochet genius, I can do granny square stitch (I am sure it isn’t even called that when it is not an actual granny square) and that is that.
For this blanket I decided to start with a dark dark grey and as I crochet out, I will use lighter and lighter shades, ending with white or a super pale grey. I am currently at shade two and I am liking where I am heading. The pattern is from Pip Lincolne’s book Craft for the Soul.
Learning to crochet took me so long, I am happy to have actually made something and now I am making this lovely blanket and I should finish it, yay!
This funny little notebook was at an estate sale this past week and I picked it up for 50c. It is empty of writing or notes and each page has a grid and the Dewey Logo. When I snagged it, I didn’t have a plan for it and as February started I decided to draw a house/building every day and I am drawing them in this book.
This is day one and I am excited to have a sketchbook full of twenty nine or more buildings. I already feel like I want to draw a page of windows and one of doors, so that will be a couple of extra pages.
Day two was a block of flats!
I am already thinking what I will do every day in March. Maybe a book of doodles or of faces. Through January I drew a fish a day, all on the same page which worked really well as a daily creating project. So I plan to do something along these lines every month through this year. By December I should have a little collection of sketchbooks full of ideas and drawings.
This was a super fun project and literally took less than ten minutes every day.
Do you have lots of WIPs? Are you more of a start a project, start a project, start another project person? Or do you start one, finish one? I do have various things on the go, but the finish of each is in my mind unless it really is not working.
I hope you are making lots of fabulous things! Happy Wednesday x
