On no crafts and a lot of reading

Egads, it has been over a year since I posted. I cannot promise that I will post more regularly but I will try.

Last year I was looking at a challenge to finish off projects in progress. I finally have access to a digital camera, I've started taking pictures of the projects in progress, and now I need to delve into my craft room. There I will organize the projects, clean, and get pics of the projects. These projects cross crafting disciplines. I have embroidery, crewel embroidery, counted cross stitch, knitting, crochet, quilting, clothing, tatting and I have no idea what else. Plus I just learned a new technique called locker hooking. Just what I needed, to learn a new technique. Ah well, I plan to spend the weekend, and possibly longer, getting things organized and photographed. I expect there will be several blog posts just covering the different projects.

To slow things down on the crafting front I have been on a reading jag. 20+ books for January '09. I'm slowing down on the reading and crafting is picking up again. I'm trying checking out audio books from the library so I can listen to my books while I craft. Maybe this way I can get some literature in me while I craft.

Am looking forward to seeing your new projects. Audio books are a favorite companion of mine while ratting - along with instrumental music.

Hi! I see you are a fellow tatter! Very cool. Hope to see some tatting coming up! Maybe I'll snoop around, too! LOL! You are welcome to visit my blog if you would like. :)
