I’m baaack

Just a friendly warning to you all lol. I finally got my internet back and have been working on a few things lately that I would like to share. My boyfriend’s mom picked me up a couple boxes of craftsy stuff last weekend at a rummage sale here and I have to say that I now blame her for my current obsession with Cross Stitch. I have done cross stitch off and on over the years but after my oldest son was born (he is now 13) I somewhat put everything done due to the fact that I just never seemed to have the time or the money to do it anymore.

Let me give you a little history on me. I get obsessed with various craft ventures for a time and stock up on anything and everything related to the craft, I go balls to the wall for a while and then all of the sudden, BAM I hit a wall! lol I think I tend to overload myself and then just can’t take it anymore. Scrapbooking, quilting, oragomi, crochet, cross stitch, are just a few things that I have done this with over the years. I love crafts and I love creating new things, I just have an issue with actually finishing projects that I start. I am definitely adhd when it comes to that aspect of things.

I noticed I was starting to do this with my crochet projects lately. Once I started working full time my crochet time suffered horribly and I was starting projects but not picking them back up and finishing them for the most part. I need to end that bad habit. But anyways, back to my original vein of conversation (yes it’s early in the am, and no I have not had coffee yet, if you can’t tell lol) in these boxes of craftsy stuff there was an assortment of floss, cross stitch aida cloth, a couple of pattern books, some guest towels and bibs. Needless to say I have been hooked since I looked at them. I had honestly forgotten how much I enjoy doing the craft. My only wish was that I didn’t have to drive 25 miles to get more floss and supplies as my local Walmart seems to think that no one out this way is of the craft pursuasion 😦

I also finally aquired a sewing machine yesterday afternoon and have been happily sewing away some little creations. I say little but the dog bed that I made last night is over 3 feet long and about 2 feet wide 🙂 But it fits my big puppy just perfectly and she is content, so therefore I am. I made a cute little tank top tote for my daughter also, that was a bit trickier due to the material, but I think she will like the results.

Ok now that I am done rambling I am just going to throw a couple of completed project pictures on here for you to look at. I promise to try and get back into the swing of blogging again and updating 🙂 Hope you all are having a wonderful joyful weekend.

The pumpkin hat is the one that I posted about a few weeks back, it fits beautifully. The pink strawberry shortcake hat was the revision of the white one I posted a couple of weeks ago. I changed up the color and added some leaves and strawberries on the top 🙂
