Things have been pretty busy around here lately, the days are getting away from me and I feel like I am chasing my tail all the time.
I have signed up for an e-course called 'Blog with Pip' of Meet me at Mike's fame, and it has started this week. It is fabulous, with heaps of great info, but already I feel behind, lots of other students are sharing what they are doing and they are really achieving a lot in a week! Gotta get my act into gear!! We are able to interact together through a Facebook page and comments on the course page, but I find myself feeling quite shy and hanging back a bit. I think I will make myself get more involved, even if it is out of my comfort zone.
I am hoping to give this blog a bit of a make over, you know, new banner, tidier sidebar, better tags to make it easier to find things, that sort of thing. I am contemplating offering some form of sponsorship down the side, I have seen a lot of blogs recently that have advertising down the side and it doesn't seem to detract from their blogs, and it would be a way for me to contribute to our family finances while still doing the things I love. ( and I would not have to look for work outside home!)
Anyhoo, I have lots of thoughts floating around in my skull at the minute, really must try and sort some of them out!
On the crafty front, I have finished my second harlequin cot blanket. Yay! I was trying to work on this exclusively so I could get a fair idea of how much time these take to make, but as usual, a couple of other projects needed attention, so I have a rough idea only.
I am having a lot of fun with this pattern, and I love the tapestry crochet technique, it will probably be boring for you guys, but I think I will make another one of these in a different colour scheme.
I am thinking about writing this pattern up and making 'blanket kits' with all the wool and instructions in them and selling them in my shop. What do you think?
Anyhoo, that's a little catch up from round these parts, have you been doing anything special?
What do you think about advertising on blogs?
Have you got any on yours?
What are you making at the moment?
