I admit to becoming a terrible nerd for medieval fantasy lately. I have no shame.
Last Monday, my new Nephew, Henry, was born. He is just about the cutest infant I have ever seen.
Every winter I usually tackle one or two knitting projects. I’ve never become particularly skilled, but I try a new challenge every year. Perhaps that would explain why older women are always so good at knitting. This year I made Henry a Hudson Bay inspired crib blanket. I found the project over on The Purl Bee.
Pendleton blankets, including the Hudson Bay, have been everywhere in home decorating for the last year and I saw no reason Henry should be left out of this trend.
Here’s the finished blanket.
Yesterday was my final day of classes for the quarter. I spent around 20 hours over the last few days making this flash website. The last thing I wanted to do when I turned the project in was more work, but with the holiday next week there’s only so much time to get projects done before the Detroit Urban Craft Fair.
So I printed.
When you’re doing something you love, working can become this relaxing, mind-settling activity. I left open studio feeling really at peace and I realized that I am finally the person I want to be. I may not be exactly where I want to be in life, but I am working towards it and that gives me a sense of fulfillment.
