I Can Craft!

It's been a long time since I've done any serious crafting.  The last item I was working on was back in January when I was working on my first knitted sweater. (Knitted anything, really. At least since I used to knit my Barbie blankets.) 
I was so proud of it.  I was part way through the second sleeve when my wrist gave out. Couldn't knit. Couldn't crochet.  Couldn't even do my job any more.  It didn't seem like it at the time, but I was devastated. I stopped all crafts.  
It was only recently that I made anything and it was out of necessity. I needed more pads. And I don't do disposable, as you probably know.  My supply wasn't lasting.  So I made some more. 
I remembered my love of creating! And the sewing machine doesn't hurt my wrist! So I finished up my bandana-scrap-dog-kennel-mat quilt. My partner says that it's too nice to have a dog shit on it.  I thought that was a pretty good compliment after he couldn't even recognize the pillow box as a birch log. :P


  1. Good thing there are so many ways to be creative! Pillow box? I'm intrigued. (And I will finish that sweater for you!)

  2. Lovely sweater, the short sleeves look great! Love the dog mat, too, you'll become a quilter yet!

  3. That is the unfinished sweater. It has a sleeve and a half now.
