I have bought myself a Christmas/New Year gift I am pretty excited about. A year's subscription to Craftsy Unlimited. I love doing craftsy classes and I know I will get a lot of value from this subscription.
I have already used it to make my first piece of lacy knitting by making one of the items in the Knit Lab class by Stefanie Japel. Here is my little neck scarf I finished yesterday.
(Thanks to my daughter Jamie for modeling the scarf for me in sweltering hot weather)
I've been doing a bit of a stocktake in my craft room today.
Orphan Anne has been looking decidedly grumpy lately. It turns out she isn't happy with the number of UFOs (unfinished objects) and unmade craft kits in my craft room. I have therefore elected her to be keeper of my UFO pincushion. Each little piece of paper represents an unfinished object or unmade kit spanning over a variety of crafts. The goal is to try and get some of these things done to see if a smile will appear on Orphan Anne's face. I suspect she might always wear a frown though as I know there will be more projects added to it over time and I won't even mention how many items are on my "want to do" list.
(I made Orphan Anne many years ago from a Little Dirt Lane pattern by Jess Pouncil)
Actually I feel inspired to work on a UFO. I'd better go and get to it while the inspiration is there. Hopefully I will have a partially or completely finished UFO in my next post.
