Crafting On

The act of creating, in one form or another, preserves my sanity amongst the chaos of life. This explains why I always have more than one project going at a time as well as why my housework tends to fall behind. I enjoy seeing what others are working on and keeping calm with, too. What are you creating? What is keeping you going? Snap a picture or two, post it on your blog, on Instagram #craftingon and/or Flickr and then share it with the rest of us by leaving your link below.
crafting on
Nearing the finish line with the 10 years in the making farm mat. There are some mistakes that the perfectionist in me wants to go back, rip it out and completely redo but I am fighting that perfectionist to get it done in time for Baby F's birthday this week. The photo shows it unblocked. I am taking it to the laundromat to felt it tomorrow. I am nervous to do it but praying it all comes out okay!

What are you working on? Happy creating!

Winter Book Basket

King Winter must have heard our pleas and finally came to visit us. We were told to expect a big storm but the snowflakes fell slow and small Saturday evening. The winds and cold temperatures followed on Sunday. In the end we only had a little over 5" of snow. We are happy either way. All we wanted was at least a little snow to build snowmen, ride our toboggan, make lemon ices (see the Lemon Sisters book below) and have snowball fights.

Our weekend inspired me to make our winter book basket and share it with all of you. I can't even tell you how happy we have been unboxes our beloved books. It was like Christmas all over again.
I feel like we have more winter favorites but more than likely they are still in one of our (many) unopened boxes. I will update when we find more. In the meantime this is what we currently have in our winter book basket. Each image is a direct link to the book. I just like the way it looks and thought it would be easier on all of you, too!
