Maybe it is a working with a particular medium - crochet, embroidery, sewing ... or perhaps it is crafting for a particular event, or even maybe crafting for your kids, or your home.
For me it is most definitely, well and truly, Christmas crafting.
I am obsessed with it.
No, I do not care that we have only just finished with May. Not one teeny tiny skerrick. For some reason, the thought of making cute decorations and stuff for Christmas leaves me all a tingle with much crafty delight.
In May I made...
an amigurumi snowman called Wallace. He has a hat just like Wall out of Footrot Flats. I loved Footrot Flats as a child, my dad was a bit of a collector, he has all the Footrot Flats, Asterix and Snoopy comics and many hours were spent reading them.
some crochet candy canes,
and some crochet snowflakes
In June I am planning on doing more... some cross stitch from some cute little pattern books I bought at the Quilt and Craft Fair, more crochet snowflakes (because there is no such thing as too many snowflakes in my house!) and maybe even an amigurumi reindeer to be friends with Wallace.
It honestly doesn't bother me that they only get to come out once a year, that just makes them even more special.
In the meantime though, as a little break from the festivity, I've been working on this lovely piece of sashiko that is hiding under my cross stitch iphone cover giveaway!
