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…
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!
