Crafty Chaotic Life


I am so bad about Unfinished Projects! 
 I will start something and then move on to something else.
It's pretty chaotic, kinda like my blog. I know my blog is a mess, I wish I had a nice clean organized blog, its just that I work on a computer all day long for my day job so the last thing I want to do is be on the computer at night. Its hard to find time to create then find more time to write a post about it. But I think posting pictures is what people love to see?  (ie pinterest, flickr)  I realize I am a horrible narrator but its hard to keep up a blog, it is very time consuming, that is why I'm always so grateful when other bloggers take the time to post tutorials.  
Anywho, I appreciate all that visit my blog despite the mess!   

Here are a couple things I'm working on . 
 
I have been pretty persistent with trying to make the perfect baby bootie. In fact, one night I stayed up until 3 am! (blogged about here) I think this pink bootie turned out well but now I have to make another one just like it.  I have a  pattern that I am following however I keep getting the stitches wrong.

here is another one I attempted. I'm trying to find a good easy pattern. Once I have perfected the baby bootie I will then embelish it with straps and bows and all that cute stuff.

I also just wanted to make some more hot pads. I love the string quilting blocks. I'm actually putting together a separate post for these hot pads but I also need to finish them.

Then I started crocheting some slippers for my husband, he mentioned he wanted a pair...who knows when I will get the other side done.....man I am horrible.
Lets not forget my granny square project.... 
Once I came across this picture I had to make it....so I have started yet another project... a granny square bag...I just get bored with one project that I move on to the next...I'm sure you can all relate right?
I think I need to take a break from Pinterest  for a week and just get my own projects completed.

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch

Car seat canopy covers

This is a must have in the summer heat I had a summer baby, born in July!  And I wanted her to have privacy when out in public but there was no way I was going to drape a blanket over her so as a sewer I came up with a solution! Moms are problem solvers!
