2 crafty. 2 many ideas. 2 much yarn. 2 many pattern books. 2 many craft supplies collecting dust. Time to get moving. Past time to define myself. This begins my journey.

Something New Saturday - Fabric Basket
For today's something new I decided to put a new spin on something I used to make about 15 years ago. A friend taught me how to crochet baskets before I was crocheting for real. I found another friend who hooked me up with a supplier of some fabric ends. I've saved those ends for a long time - not really knowing what to do with them, but not wanting to throw them away. True crafters know exactly what I'm talking about. Anyway, I saw an idea from Crochet Dude.... I ripped some of the fabric I had into smaller strips - thinking I could make a smaller basket. Well, fabric is NOT easy for me to crochet with. So although this Something New was kind of a bust, at least I was able to come to the decision that crocheting with fabric just isn't my thing. So... off to make more squares. I just calculated my total, and I have 690 done for the year. That means I have to make 310 more. Which calculates out to be a little bit more than 100 a month over these last 3 months of the year. Throw in a couple of holidays, some other "must do" craft projects that will be Christmas gifts, and the usual stuff with the kids - this is going to be very difficult to accomplish. Wish me luck!
