I haven’t written a blog post since the end of March 2014!
I gave birth to the most wonderful baby twins in mid-May of 2014. Coincidence? I think not. LOL
Yes indeed – most of my crafting and other stuff, such as writing a blog, has gone to the wayside. Especially the experiments with new stuff. The pottery wheel has been replaced with a diaper-changing table, the sewing machine with a hot wheels track, and glue is only used to put pictures in a toddler scrapbook. Sigh! I did get to keep the knitting needles and crochet hooks, and I manage to get a little bit of yarntime in during lunchtime at work. Or very long call-in meetings. A big “BRAVO – WE HAIL THEE!” to the people who drag on and never get to the point in those meetings.
So what have I been able to actually make in the last couple of years? A bunch of baby-hats and toys. But also potholders, various gifts, charity hats, and mostly little stuff – all documented on my Ravelry page. Here are some pictures:
Do I miss all the crafts and experimenting? Yes. I also miss coming home after work and having a nap, as well as randomly watching hours of mindless television.
Would I do anything differently? Yes. I’d start a couple of years earlier and have 5 kids instead of 2! Because having the minions in my life is the greatest thing ever. Yeah I know – sounds cliche, but that’s what it is. Kids are awesome! And I’m beginning to understand why Octomom is collecting them (though she’s insane!).
So until next time then! Off to new adventures. Hopefully I’ll have something to write about before 2018!
PS: I did get to keep the sewing machine too – it’s just packed away. And I never really owned a pottery wheel, but certainly don’t have time to go to the studio!
