i've been thinking about how things have been so busy.
my shop has picked up (so thankful :)
and family life, managing the house has proved more challenging
so much so, that i rarely spend time doing anything
that's not shop/blog/cleaning/cooking related
and that's no good for me.
i need to create.
i need to make things just cause
for my home. for gifts. just cause.
not because i have to or because a deadline is approaching
(even though i love what i do)
i need to have my just cause time
it's good for a makers soul
so i'm trying to change a few things.
call it a night after the girls are in bed
from then on i can craft/relax until bedtime
watch a movie... whatever.
oh i know sometimes i'll have to work late
and Christmas is right around the corner
(you didn't just hear me say that)
but for the most part, at that time of night
i hope to make stuff
this rainbow bunting is the first fruits of this new little endeavor
i used the granny square pattern that i found here
once you make a ton in all the colors you love
chain 10 for a beginning tail
then single crochet into one of the corners and keep single crocheting
all the way across one side of the square
chain 5 in between each square, keep attaching them until you're done
then chain 10 again on the other end.
