In between the crocheting of many granny squares I worked here and there on Primitive Needle's Simply Live. The saying "it takes a village" takes on new meaning with this project. I'm using a "village" of threads. A little GAST, a little WDW, some DMC, and a Crescent Colour or two. In my best Tim Gunn voice "I'm making it work". I'm still undecided about the DMC Blue for the words. There's a bit too much purple in there, normally I wouldn't say that but maybe when it's completed and I'm looking at it from a distant I'll be happier with the result. When I step back from it I like the overall appearance but up close, in my lap, it just looks too purpleyblue. This is the price one pays for being too cheap to invest in a new line of thread and making up one's own conversion from what's just laying around the house.
And as proof of granny crafting:
Now I need some help from my blog readers. I started this blog in 2003 I believe. I deleted some of my earlier archives because they were journal entries that no one needed to read, not because there was anything bad or too personal just who wants to read all that crap?
I originally started this blog as a reason to write everyday. It eventually developed into something a bit different. I want to get back into the habit of writing everyday but I don't always have anything of a crafty nature to show. I don't always have anything of a crafty nature to write about so here's what I'd like you to do. In the comments suggest topics you'd like to read about, it can be on anything but my sex life, but I'd be happy to attempt some bodice ripping fantasies if that's what you'd like. I need to start writing everyday and this blog was great writing practice for me back in the early days. You guys throw out the topics, I'll write about them off the top of my head, yes Anna that means I probably won't edit them before hitting publish so there could be some rambling but there might be some interesting stuff in there as well.
Are you all up to the challenge? I need to write, I need to reclaim that part of my life and since you all come here and read it only seems fair to let you all pick some of the material.
