WIP Wednesday and Progress Update

Happy Wednesday!

Wow, it feels like forever since I’ve posted on here! And it has been a while. But I’ve been a busy girl! I may have mentioned that on my journey for 31 days to Prepare for a Craft show, one day focused on the craft area.

Uh, well, I didn’t have one. I had an area that has “housed” many things: beauty shop, school room, and now finally a craft area. But in order to get it ready, I had some major jobs to tackle. So, I got caught up in Spring Cleaning and Purging and Organizing my entire house! Yeah, it took some time since I’m a pack rat.

I normally wouldn't show how messy my house can get.

As you can see, from just my craft area, I had my hands busy.

My daughter loves to sew and craft (like her Momma.) I set up space for us both to share.

A place for everything and everything in its place.

My stash 🙂

All I need is to take my label maker and label everything!! After I finished all that, I was able to pick back up my hook and finished my son’s school blanket.

I was asked to make a pillow for a friend of mine for her job.


She wanted words on the pillow and I was having the hardest time figuring out how to do it since it was such a small pillow. I first tried to just do some color work on it. NOT. It was not right. I tried to embroider on it. NOT. Then I tried do cross stitch, but I didn’t like the way it looked. So, finally I did a crochet chain to write the words. It came out fine, but I forgot to take a picture

My current work:


I picked up this amazing Marble chunky yarn by James C. Brett and I’ve been waiting to make a new project bag! Whew! So what’s on your hook? Check out what others are working on:

    I think the organizer bug is going around.

    I just wish I had the energy to organize my craft room. Every time I start I get stuck looking at patterns and rediscovering yarn and it usually ends with me no more organized but casting on something new 🙂

    I think it’s because folks are itching for spring and warm weather! I know I am.
