Now that I'm starting to get the hang of this knitting thing, I've been looking through Ravelry for projects I may want to try. Some of these are pretty ambitious, but they are just so gorgeous!!

Cross-Stitched Box Lid

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

Remember when I showed you those really cool boxes I found at an estate sale? Well..... I just finished cross stitching the first box and I'm thrilled with how it turned out! I chose a lovely floral pattern from the May 2013 issue of Cross Stitcher Magazine. I just love this design! 

Now, I've got three more boxes and no idea what I want to put on them...... Any suggestions?

Teaching Myself to Knit

Monday, August 19, 2013

Over the past couple weeks, I have been teaching myself to knit. There has been lots of YouTube videos, unravelling, and frustration. But I am finally starting to get the hang of it. It's been a struggle, but I'm getting there! I have dabbled with knitting in the past, but never stuck with it. Well this time I am determined. I am going to become a knitter. I completed my very first knitting project the other night and I am quite proud of it! I wanted to do something simple that I could sit down and finish in one night. So I decided to make a little pouch for all the tea bags and sugar packets I have floating around my purse. I found a pattern on Ravelry and about two hours later, I had a cute little pouch to tote my tea around in! Seriously, is there anything better than knitting and tea??

After finishing this little guy, I've decided I'm ready to move on to projects that are a bit larger. I've actually got three projects in the works and can't wait to see how they turn out! 

Happy knitting!

In Progress

Monday, August 12, 2013

I had every intention of spending this summer working on crafty stuff and keeping up with this blog... But that obviously didn't happen. Instead I've been working at the preschool all summer, going on trips with family and friends, hanging out with my brand new boyfriend, and recovering from Lasik surgery and a VERY dislocated tailbone. I've worked on a few crafty things here and there, but I didn't get as much done as I had hoped. I've also had to close my Etsy shop for the time being. I'm starting graduate school in two weeks and just won't have the time.

Anyways, I've got a few projects in the works that I would like to share with you!

My latest project is one that I am VERY excited about! I found these cool boxes at an estate sale this weekend and thought they would look great with cross stitched tops! I've got four boxes and need to figure out what designs to put on each. I can't wait to see how they turn out!
