Hands up who has added something new to an already busy schedule? Maybe it would be put better the other way around as in who hasn’t ;). I ask this because as I was thinking back over this week I realised that this is exactly what I had done myself. The trouble is I have done it in the past and know that I will do it again in the future!
This week has been busy enough as it has been half term. Add on to that the two blogs that I am now doing (having started the second one just over a week ago so I am still getting to grips with how this one works) and all the time that takes (making things in order to be able to blog being the most time expensive). I also have a tunic that I am knitting that really needs finishing asap and you can see that my life is very busy (but a lot of fun!) at the moment.
When out and about this week I suddenly decided that I would actually buy one of these:
Does anyone remember these from when they were little? I certainly do. One of these had been on my list for a while now as I wanted to try it out with wire. I got it on Thursday and Thursday night I:
It is a very enjoyable process where you wrap the wire around the metal spikes at the top and then pull the bottom piece of wire over the tops one with a crochet hook. It grew nice and quickly. I am going to make this into a necklace.
I think that there is a lot of scope for this and I look forward to having another play very soon. Once I have made some more jewellery the traditional way and finished my tunic that is ;). At least this ‘detour’ meant that I had something to blog about and show ready for Handmade Harbour. I am heading over there now to catch up on the weeks achievements of the many talented bloggers. I hope that you have all seen some sunshine today and that you have a great week 🙂
