Craft Documentary

April 19, 2007

I’ve been busy here, and not with knitting. It actually seems that I only get to steal a few stitches of knitting here and there. Thank goodness for knitting every Monday night! I might not knit at all if I didn’t head down to Midtown(Perugino kicked us out) for a glass of wine, some chat with the awesome knitting group and a few stitches in between.

So what have I been so busy with? Work (a very good thing) and trying to finish our bedroom. Only one more coat of mud on all those drywall seams. Last night we finished up the second coats on everything. That means we are that much closer to painting! Woohoo! It’ll be nice with the construction part of the job is done and the color oriented designing part is in place. Plus I try to get distracted from mudding by spending a little time in the garden here and there. With work, I counted and I now have close to 35 students. Of course that doesn’t count the 4th and 5th grade that I work with twice a week. I’m feeling like the schedule is filling up and I am definitely closer to having an actual pay check.
On a crafty note, I thought I would pass this along. I got it from Thimble. It looks like it mostly focuses on the more “trendy” or “young” DIY. Don’t get me wrong, I love the at the craft movement has covered many generations. However, I also think there is so much more to explore in the crafting world than the more trendy pieces.

Although, I have to say I was thrilled to see some spinning in there at the beginning. Maybe I can slip in a little spining before I’ve got to go fill the world with music!

    Yeah, I’m very interested in seeing it. As much as I wouldn’t want a rug like that in my house, the idea of making a rug that looks like a photo is interesting. It’ll be interesting to see how (and if) the crafting community has changed by the time it comes out.

    This looks really interesting. Sometimes “trendy” happens to follow something that’s good and substantial. I’m looking forward to seeing the whole thing. It also gave me some new project ideas … not that I actually need more of those.
