Almost There, Baby!

I feel like I have been working on this circle fun granny square blanket for AGES.

 AGES!!!





Well, at least a month. That counts as ages, right?

But the end is almost upon us! I think I only need about 10 more squares. I currently have 53.



When you stack them up they remind me of pancakes. Floppy, furry square, and inedible yarn pancakes.. But yeah, pancakes.



Just look at them all. It's like a sea of floppy pancakes.

Sorry, syrup not included.

How to Make Yarn from Plastic Bags - AKA PLARN!!

Earth Day is almost here. To celebrate I'm going to share with you how to make your own plastic bag yarn, otherwise known as PLARN.


 
 

 


If you haven't tried this, I recommend doing it at least once. It's not for everyone but it's definitely Earth friendly and unique. It's also a great way to use up bags. You probably get at least a few dozen bags every week from grocery shopping. Do you throw them out or do you try to re use them?

Taking Care of Business- List Style

I have been incredibly busy the past week or so. The weather has started to look promising, even if it still yo-yos back and forth between winter and spring. And because of the promise of nice weather, I've been motivated.

I'm been running around trying to finish up all the projects I have going on. Both ones from my home improvement list and my craft list. And I have to say I'm starting to plow through it. LIKE A BOSS!

And OMG. It feels wonderful!! It's like this burden has been lifted off my shoulders and I am almost, almost free to start any of the new projects I want to start.

But, no. Not now, brain. Not now. You still have a few things left to accomplish before you add on to your ridiculous list.

Let me show you a few things I am so stupidly proud of. Not because they are beyond amazing, but because they are done and I am so, so tickled that they are. FINALLY!!
