Smoke Gets In Your Eyes

Hello Friday, are you here already?

Matches and candles - Misericordia

It feels like I’ve hardly turned around and this week had disappeared in a puff of sulphurous smoke and a rustle of wrapping paper.

Brass menorah and blue and white ware - Misericordia

Hanukkah started on Sunday evening, and Dragon announced he wanted latkes every night (shortly before deciding he didn’t like latkes). I gamely carried on for four nights, but after suffering intense salad cravings, I’m letting it slide.

The craft fairs were successful, I sold some things and got quite a few enthusiastic commission possibilities, so I’m looking forward to seeing how those shape up.

Scissors and embroidery hoop - Misericordia

I have one piece to finish up and then I’m going to devote my holiday to regaining a bit of making inspiration. I’ve been finding myself aimlessly scrolling through the moderately entertaining dross of the Interwebz instead of making, so I’m going to pull out some family projects that have been neglected of late to see if I can get my needles dancing.

A Little Light Relief

I have a bit of a starting problem when it comes to craft projects, I love planning – I’m pretty good at starting and I’m dreadful at finishing things!

I’ve found that the embroideries have helped a lot, they give me the thrill of planning and starting and have conveniently strict deadlines for finishing.

The only other problem is that it’s hard to feel like I’m relaxing from embroidery by doing hand sewing. So Dragon’s quilt isn’t going very quickly, but I’ve been doing some knitting instead.

The first two were blankets for twins which took me about nine months to make (quite a nice symmetry to that), and were rather bigger than I expected (see previous parenthetical statement).

I started another, rather bigger knitting project recently, but I’ll tell you more about that soon!
