I don’t know how the days keep racing by, but I forgot to check-in on this in July, and this might be the longest I’ve ever honored a yearly resolution, so I refuse to lose track or give up. Here’s the round-up of a few completed projects I’ve done.
- I neglected to take a photo of this, but I made another car cozy for a one-year-old’s birthday, and this time I put an “E” on the front for his initial instead of a car. It turned out pretty cute despite the fact that I didn’t realize I was out of piping until I was knee-deep in the project, and I had to leave it out.
- This hardly counts as a craft, but I also put together this little Pinterest find, and I love having a place to write out our meal list that is not a crumpled sheet of paper on the fridge.
Other things I managed to finish…..
A lightweight cowl. It’s essentially a “for looks only” knit in that it doesn’t add real warmth. Perfect for our pretend falls here in the south.
I also managed to finish my first hat, despite the fact that I lost the pattern, so I had to wing it there at the end. (And taking photos of yourself in the bathroom mirror feels pretty awkward.)
I made a few headbands using this easy tutorial. It was pretty much impossible to self-direct a photo that looks decent, but you get the idea.
I made this (thanks to Pinterest) for Jude’s upcoming birthday party.
And I made a table runner as well. I couldn’t hold back when I found inexpensive Little Engine that Could fabric that is perfect for our old-school train party.
And last but not least, a handful of scrapbook pages. I can’t believe I’ll soon be closing in on the end of this album.
So that’s it for the crafting round-up. I have some gifty things I am finishing up, and I mailed out Jude’s birthday invitations yesterday, so I’ve got lots of party crafts on the horizon as well. I’ll check in soon, I hope, with something a little less boring, but I love that this little space forces me to keep track of what I’ve done. Happy Wednesday, readers.
