wow, i'm not so good at this...

I'm not so good at this blogging bit, I think maybe it's because I can't settle on any one topic to blog about and who needs to read all the crazy weird stuff that's going I'll stick to crafts and knitting.

I've been slightly obsessed with craft blogs lately. I love them! I've been reading everyone I can find - can I mention now how much I love google reader? I love that it keeps all the blogs I like to read and it tells me if I read the current posts or not. I've decided that I need to learn (or re-learn rather) how to sew. Reading all these craft blogs has been fueling the desire to craft SOMETHING! I knit a very nice sock (ok it's kinda lopsided and a little loose) but I can't find the motivation to knit a second. I'm a little obsessed with the sewing however. The craft blogs that I have been reading have awesome patterns to recycle things like pillow cases into aprons, purses, tank tops, laundry bags and sooo much more. I can't wait to try something. I'm going to try to convince the hubs that we should do a little thrift shore shopping/garage saling this weekend so that I can buy some cheap pillowcases. I did find a cute set of sheets at Target and I bought a set of double bed sheets so I could have two pillow cases. What will I do with the sheets? I'm not sure yet, but I'll find something I'm sure :-)

The more blogs I read the more I want to just stay home and knit and sew and craft. Who needs work right? Maybe if I actually get on this I could make some money crafting, but it's just not as fun when you have to as when you want to. So wish my luck with the sewing machine and the pillow cases!
