Gosh, I don't think I've gone more than a week without blogging here in a very long time without warning. Life is busy, busy, busy and I am tired, tired, Tired but that's not very interesting to read so I'll keep that bit brief!
Last weekend my weekend project manifested in the form of a little crochet project I found in a book from the library - 30 Minute Crochet: What Can You Crochet in Half an Hour or Less?
I love all those glass mason jar projects you see in style articles but attaching clips/magnets/brackets to walls or whatever else is required is always just a step too far for me to actually make it happen so when I saw these crochet jar "cosies" with a handle I thought how perfect they'd be to pop an impromptu vase of something lovely here and there without any hassle at all.
The project took a bit longer than 30 minutes but certainly not a whole hour and once you get to a certain point it was just repeats to the end. I used some leftover natural coloured organic cotton yarn, a 3.5mm hook and it fit a standard jam jar pretty perfectly.
It was beautiful weather that weekend (judging from my social media feeds, we seem to be the only people in the country who have gale force winds and rain this weekend...) so we went for a walk and collected some branches with buds to emerge in the jar - the original idea was to find some branches that would blossom but I couldn't find any on that particular walk.
If I had any daylight remaining I'd show you what they look like now as the leaves have all sprouted and are looking cheerfully Spring-like.
I'm pretty happy with this little project. I do enjoy squeezing a bit of something new and creative into my week(end), however small.
What crafty projects have you been up to lately?
