The Week Ahead – New Ideas

So it’s another week and I’ve been taking things a little easy on the crafting front.  However, I’ve got 101 different ideas to try out so I’m ready to jump straight back in!

20130428_205828This week I am planning on finishing off my basket weave scarf (which I’ve been taking a ridiculously long time with) and starting on some new cross stitch ideas.  Let’s face it, the weather is finally improving so I should probably put the knitting needles to one side for now.  Saying that, I do want to start going to a local knitting night – there are a few pubs in Edinburgh that seem to hold regular knitting nights.  I just need to build up the courage to pop along (I’m stupidly shy when it comes to these things!!)

One of my new ideas is to create Cross Stitch Tartan Earrings.  Not sure how it’s going to pan out but I’ve ordered the threads to create a Flower of Scotland Pattern so I’ll probably have an update on that next week.

I recently knitted a pair of baby booties for one of the gals at work and I think they would be a great wee seller so I might try knitting up some more – they’re truly adorable!  I might need to take another crack at the matching hat though – this one looks a tad small!!IMG_20130427_213202

I think that’s all my news for now.  I’m sure I’ll have more of an update once I properly get back into things this week!  Enjoy the Bank Holiday Monday if you’re getting the day off.  Sadly I’ll no doubt be typing away at work by the time you’re reading this!
