Big Wheel Keep on Turning'

Doesn't it just seems like the world is spinning faster? I'm not sure where the time goes, but it seems like every time I blink, another great chunk of my life has passed me by.

2017 is definitely a year of changes. New job, new look, new everything it seems. But it's peripheral. I'm still the same deep down. And I'm okay with that.

On a crafty note, I've changed things up a little. The Pokemon undertaking has been abandoned. There's only so much criticism I can take from a 6 year old. I think we're much better friends when we don't play Pokemon.

Instead, I have decided to take on a much larger project...drum roll please!

I am going to make a hexagon quilt.

I know right. Huge goal right there. But I've looked at different patterns, pieced together my own method and made a plan. And I think it's gonna work. I've already put a fair amount of work into it so far and I am quite determined to actually finish this one...unlike the 2 other blankets I began.

And this is a great way to get rid of my scrap yarn! I am so excited about it. So far that excitement hasn't started to wane, lets hope I can maintain it till I'm done!

A Rather Grey View

I love all things Austen. And even though the blog title reference comes from the 2005 film, not the book. The quote popped right into my head when I started writing.
Things have been a little slow on the craft front for me. Between work, uni and family, life has been beyond stressful. I haven't gotten around to photographing any of my current work, but I'll do a proper update later. I just feel like getting some of this stress off my chest.

...Searching Far and Wide

Lately, I have been going nuts over Pokemon. Again. I feel like I'm a kid again. I've set myself a goal of creating one new Pokemon each week. That way when my cousin comes over each week, there's a new edition to the group.

In a World of Pure Imagination

True to my word, I have been making Pokemon like crazy. I have at least a hand full now. I just haven't had the chance to photograph them just yet, so I'll save the images for another day.

In the mean time, I thought I'd share my latest inspiration...shorts!
