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 or two and share it with the rest of us by leaving your link below.
This is where I will be spending every waking minute over the next couple of days - working on birthday gifts. I ran out of time for a dress, so a skirt will do. The birthday sweater requires 32 matching buttons which I could not find locally so I had to order them online from Canada. I am on pins and needles waiting for them to arrive. I might be cutting it too close this year!!

I meant to share this in my last KCCO post but totally forgot in the moment. Sparkle Stories just put out an audio book all about knitting! This is an hour-long "Martin & Sylvia" story divided into three parts! The story includes lots of wool craft projects, including knitting, working with wool, spinning yarn and fingerknitting - and centers on a class brother and sister take with a magical woman named Miss Melinda. If your family loves to knit together, or if you're wanting to inspire your children to learn knitting and wool crafts, you'll really enjoy these stories! There are even tutorials and patterns available so your children can create right along with Martin and Sylvia! C and I might even use one of the tutorials to make a birthday gift.
free knitting story is also available. It's called The Fingerknit Necklace and you can find it here.

What are you working on? Happy creating!

It's as simple as that. Remember your post can be from any day of the week, it doesn't have to be today.
