Like I need another project....

That is what my loving and supportive husband just said when I told him I was starting a craft blog. Nice. But the idea behind this blog is two-fold.

1: To share ideas and hopefully make me want to make forward progress on my many unfinished objects (from here on out refered to as UFOs).
2: To serve as a craft journal of the projects I end up gifting away.

Case in point, this adorable rag quilt that will be going to a sister in my ward who had a baby boy a month ago.
It is puppy dog prints and a red flannel back, and it worked up even cuter than I had envisioned in my mind's eye. So now I have a record to look back and remember how much I liked this finished project long after the quilt has gone to it's new home.

Another example:
This is an heirloom-quality cable knit blanket I made for my brother's first born. I got the pattern off Knitting Pattern Central, a great directory of free knitting patterns. And now that my brother is moving his family across the country I won't get to see the blanket in person anymore. (I'll miss my family too...)

So there you have it, I'll be posting pictures during all phases of my creative process. Mostly for myself, but feel free to look around and leave a comment.
