'Twas mostly a quiet, if busy, week at home due to the deep freeze many of us in the U.S. have experienced for a week now. When I turned to crafting it was small things that caught my attention.
I decided to finish a snowflake I started back in early December. It was one of the few advent crafts I did - remember that grand plan? And while I had the crochet thread out, I decided to make a second snowflake by the same designer:
The Frostvale and Wispweave snowflakes are beautiful, if stunningly challenging (to me, anyway) on the last round.
And, actually, I think I also made the following two snowflakes in December, but I just recently blocked them:
And, as often happens when I start crocheting with thread, my fingers just want more of it, so I looked through my 99 Little Doilies book and decided to make Doily #8 for the second time.
I gave away the first one, and I was missing it.
It's kind of crazy how much I want to make another doily. Doilies can be addictive. Until I make a really hard one. Then I don't want to make another for a very long time.
And lastly, I finished Tag #7 for the 52 Tags Challenge:
The theme for this tag was "Hexis"
These cute little Hexis were made by starting with a circle and folding it and ironing it. If you're at all curious, the video I followed is here.
And that's pretty much it! This week will probably see my brother's house being listed for sale. And then we wait... hopefully, not too long. I've already received one cash offer (it was too low), and am told there are two agents interested in showing it already, so we'll see!
Still lots to do on the homefront. And the legal front. And just keeping up with things.
With the temps warming up a bit, I'm hoping I can motivate myself to get into a walking routine. All that snow covering our yard will hopefully be gone by mid-week, and the piles maybe by next week. It will be fun to see it go!
