Today I rediscovered another UFO (they lurk everywhere) and I do think I might try to return to this project and complete it. I am putting it here to encourage me to get on with it.
There, now you have all seen it, its public, make me finish it this time please!!
I have finished one project to show today though:
This is a crocheted mushroom that I made for my friend Weirdbunny who visited today. I really like it and will have to make another for myself, I particularly like the white button spots, a brainwave I had late last night as I was finishing the top. I am pretty new to crochet and struggle a bit with patterns, but I started out with a pattern I got from etsy which was really good and easy to understand. I soon deviated from the pattern though (I am not very good at being told what to do!) as I wanted the stalk to be longer. This was all several weeks ago, then I put the project down and promptly lost my pattern instructions, so when I picked it back up last night I just had to fudge my way through making up as I went along. It looks like I wanted it to look in my head, even if it is a long way from the original starting point, and quite a bit bigger (about 5-6 inches high I think).Weirdbunny had said she wanted one for ages so I am glad she likes it.
And now changing the subject (almost) completely this is a picture of my new cabinet, part one of my 'New Plan For Tidiness'. I am one of the messiest people you will ever come across -so here is the plan: Have little cabinets stuffed with, erm, stuff, up on the walls in each room, and then maybe that will satisfy the need to be surrounded by pretty things. Then I will be able to move some of the stuff off every other surface and the floor and maybe, just maybe we will be able to walk across a room without falling over or stepping on anything.
I also want to put more things in it yet, this is just the start.
I will let you know how it goes.
