Crochet has taken a back seat to work and sleep lately…and what’s worse, I got my very first sewing machine last week and have been too pooped to do anything but stare at it. Well, that’s a lie. I fired it up prematurely, promptly got the thread (and fabric) stuck into the bottom (the feed dogs?). Was devastated, but needless to say, I now know how to open my machine, clean it, and put it back together. All is fine now!
I have this gloriously rainy Monday off, and got to play with my new toy today. First on the agenda was making a cozy for Buster (the new machine’s name) out of some dollar store bandanas that have been sitting in my craft box for about 3 years. It’s horrific. I didn’t use a pattern, or any measurements. Just my eyes.
I love it.

Well, look at me. Starting a blog, and then getting too busy to update it.
Story of my life!
Not much crocheting has been happening on the homefront, as the day job has picked up in intensity and required most of my attention. I’m looking forward to this Labor Day weekend, and *finally* getting the chance to photograph my completed goods and getting them up on my poor little dormant Etsy shop.
I’ve got to admit – I’m nervous about starting my shop up. Will people like my stuff? Will anyone notice me, among all the other beautiful crocheted items? Who knows. But I’m going for it anyway. I love yarn, and I love what Etsy is doing for amateur designers like me.
I finally received my first purchase from Etsy last week, will be sure to post pictures of the adorable little terrariums currently gracing my windowsill from TortoiseLovesDonkey’s Shop. They are PRECIOUS and I can’t stop staring at them. We even built a windowsill where there was none before, just so we had a permanent place to admire them!
In the meantime, wishing you a happy weekend, and thank you for stopping by!
