A is for Anne
“Anne” is basically finished. I finished her last month already and yet, she still sleeps inside her project bag awaiting the day when I will finally perform the finishing touches that will move her from WIP to FO.
Is there anyone else out there who procrastinates when tucking-in tails & seaming? Please tell me I’m not the only one! 😁
B is for Black’s a Bitch
I do not know what I was thinking. As a lover of lace motifs, I let feelings overrule logic and set out to crochet an obscure “something wearable” made out of black lace motifs – which aren’t even square to begin with and hence, require the invention of a filler motif.
Imagine the gazillion tails that I will need to tuck away eventually 🤪 Plus, working with black yarn is very difficult for when you need to correct something and have to unravel. #Crazy! 🤪 Already I burned through my supply of this yarn and will have to purchase more if I want to finish.
What I learned: motifs really use up a lot of yarn due to their tails – 2 each 🤪 😁

C is for (Creative) Constipation 🤭
I recently bought this beautifully variegated crochet thread that I was very excited to crochet a table centerpiece with. Well, 3 failed centerpieces later and I realize the variegation just doesn’t lend itself well to anything ornate such as a table center. The thread colors interfere with the ornate design creating a visually noisy item.
I wish I took a picture of it before unraveling so you could see what I mean but, here’s the thread up close:
Hmmm … I’m feeling a bit defeated today but I’m aiming at finishing at least one of them for next Friday.
This is nothing but a temporary dry spell, nothing that a jolt of Pinterest can’t cure, yes? 😉
How about you, how do you get yourself started again when experiencing a creative block?
Have a wonderful weekend everyone! 😘
