The weekend went fast, as usual, and it's Monday again.
Anyway, end of last week and over the weekend I decided to try a couple new things.
I really admire people who have skills with yarn. I can only do one crochet stitch that someone taught me at church in college. I've made blankets with lots of...um, character, but nothing fancy. I have trouble counting so I usually avoid patterns. Sometimes I count backwards mid-count or skip numbers, even if I'm counting aloud... what can I say, I'm just not a numerical person...
visit her blog here) and decided to give it a try. Even though you do have to count.
I followed these instructions found at nittybits here and so far it's coming along. I'm trying to get it done before it gets lost in a corner somewhere so you'll be seeing many more yarn pictures.
I picked up a button making kit at JoAnn's (less than $4 I believe) and followed the instructions on the back as a break when my brain started hurting...
My gosh these are so EASY!!! and so darn fun to make. They turn out so cute! But I have no idea what to do with them now.... Besides stare at them obviously. The car and the strawberry are my favorites. And the snail too.
I'm pretty proud of myself for trying something new! Here's hoping the rest of it turns out! I'll keep you posted.
How was your weekend? Have you tried anything new recently?
