Keep Calm Craft On {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 and share it with the rest of us by leaving your link below.

K's KCCO contribution...




Since there is a new knitter amongst us I thought I might share K's current work in progress. She just picked it up yesterday morning as we waited on a friend to come over for a play date.  It is a dress for her Phoebe Mermouse (from one of our favorite books Phoebe's Birthday).  Like her Mama, she is crafting by the seat of her pants and just making up a pattern as she goes. She really wanted to have a contrasting yarn as trim to the dress and discovered how to switch colors while knitting - it took me years to figure out how to do that! I was told that there is a plan to make a similar dress for C's mermouse as well. Maybe a Christmas gift is in the works?

and mine:


Speaking of Christmas, I think it may be Phoebe themed!
I am much further behind than I thought ,even though I started out so early this year, and need to get my butt in gear. I did finish up the girls' Phoebe dolls from what might be an essential read in our home - Phoebe's Sweater. I have to re-do their sweaters though.

With the above mentioned fun filled play date with a friend, plus the power going out and a sky that looked like night throughout the whole day - I was unable to get any pictures of what I am currently working on. So hopefully these finished Phoebes will be sufficient enough. Now, back to their little sweaters so they can be nice and warm Christmas morning.

But before I go I wanted to say a huge heartfelt THANK YOU to all of you first for your nomination and then for your votes in the homeschooling blog awards - Frontier Dreams won for best homeschooling method (Waldorf)!! I am beside myself and filled with so much gratitude. Thank you, thank you from the very bottom of my heart. My little ones thank you, too, for the homeschooling supplies we will receive from this award. What a blessing!
