If you didn’t know, I love crafting and tea. And if you know me well, you know that I often won’t do one without the other. It just feels right and it soothes my soul. Lately, I feel like I’ve been betraying myself by not sharing more of my crafty side here on the blog. I also have been consuming an unseemly amount of tea without pairing it with a little D.I.Y but I have forgiven myself.
One, because I’m not afraid of putting myself out there anymore. I’m always shy that my skills are nothing compared to other handy ladies but no more comparing. This is the year of bravery! Two, well, because I recently had a terrible health scare that took away the use of my hands. Don’t worry though, I am about 55% percent back to health and we are fairly certain we know what has been causing it. Plus, you can’t go too long without having a good cup of tea, am I right?
Before I start of lose you, I want to introduce you to two new post themes I want to start this year.
Knitting and crochet are two of my best hobbies by far so, my current obsession with wool and other fibers makes total sense. At the mo, Scheepjes Catona is my current yarn crush.
And that brings me to my next theme.
Work in progress is pretty self-explanatory. The moment my hands gave me a little room to work, I picked up a crochet hook and started working on my Sophie’s Stool Kit using Scheepjes Catona. I’m still a bit rusty and I probably messed up on this pattern a million times already but I am proud of what I was able to do with my poorly hands. I’ll continue to make it up and I’ll be proud of it once I am done. I mean, how gorgeous is it going to be?!
