How’s everyone’s creative life been going?  Last week I took a short hiatus from crocheting and I really missed not moving my hands every night.  My husband’s staycation was a lot of running around, cooking for family, parks, beer gardens, a music festival, a parade, fireworks, more cooking, more beer, golfing, and many nights eating on our back patio and making s’mores.

While I love having my husband at home, he and I are very different paced.  He is a very social person, and likes to go, go, go.  It was slightly exhausting ;).  By Saturday morning I couldn’t put it off any longer, while the family slept, I crept downstairs and started working on a strap for my freeform bag.  On Sunday I literally sat on the couch all day and started a new, brighter colored, freeform project.  It was good to get back to the hook.

Here is the evolution of my bag…

I really love it.  The texture, the colors, the cross-body strap, the size, everything just screams “THIS IS ME!”  I still have to add a liner and I want to sew in a zipper, but the main part is complete, phew.

I had so much fun with my freeform project that I’ve already started another one.  I don’t think this will be a purse, I have another idea for it…

Crochet circles, in bright colors, the start to my Freeform crochet project.

Like the first time, I started with circles.

I’m now in the process of scrumbling, or adding texture to my circles.  This is what I have so far.


So many projects, so little time.  I hope to keep working on these this week along with a few commissions I have.  Until next time, Happy Crocheting!
