It has been a while

Today I am recommitting to doing some sort of crafting each and everyday, even if it is just 15 minutes. the last few weeks I have been sewing again and really enjoying it and I think it is helping me to head in the direction I want to go in instead of just floating aimlessly in life as I have been for the past year or so. I have also learnt to crochet with the help of some friends and the internet video tutorials. So here are some photos of things I have been working on

This was finished and given to a new baby

These were my first attempts at crochet.
I then attempted a toy
This is the beginning square of a blanket I am working on

These 3 were Christmas gifts for a baby.

I really enjoyed having the motivation of FNSI this week. 

Tonight I started with this...

and finished the night with this!

I was pretty happy with that progress. 
Thanks Wendy for organising FNSI and getting me motivated. 
Linking up with all the other wonderful people over at FNSI at Sugarlane Designs,

Some Progress on a UFO

Finally starting to see some progress with one of my UFOs.  I can't even remember when I started this one so I will probably start a new page for any that weren't documented on my 2013 UFO page. Hopefully since I have only left a few projects out I might be a bit better at getting them finished ;0)

This is one of the hexagon sides to Anni Downs from Hatched and Patched  Home Sewn Sampler Bag. I know I started it with a couple of friends when we were doing some social sewing, life changed and I never got mine finished but after seeing one of the others finished bag, I was inspired to get to work on mine. Maybe I can get this side finished tomorrow!

It's Been a Long Time

I haven't been doing much lately but I am starting to feel the need to do creative work again now. I just signed up for the Meadow Mystery Quiltalong and I still have some UFO's I'm working on so that should keep me busy for a while. Anyone want to join me?
