The Antipodean Artisan's Story

Wednesday, 15 December 2010


Hey everyone.  I just wanted to say sorry for the lack of blogs.  I have actually been doing some sewing and crochet but I feel guilty for not doing the other.  Does anyone else feel this way?  I still have some christmas sewing to do, but everytime i think of doing it i just want to make more stuff for me.  Too many things on the to do list.  That is my problem.  After all the Christmas stuff is done, I am going to try to do one project at a time. This of course will not happen, as I love making stuff for other people.  But less stuff for them and more for me..... that's the plan.  And more blogs.

My first granny square

Look!!! I've made what I hope is to be the first of many granny squares.
I should have been sewing my christmas presents, but I was so tired I didn't trust myself with a machine that has a sharp object going at a very fast speed, so wook and a wooden hook did it, and I must say I'm quite pleased with my first attempt.

For more crochet inspiration check out Lucy's blog.  She has really beautiful hooked lovelies.
