Spare time?

I have been misled.

I thought I was supposed to have more time on my hands and not know what to do with myself now that all 3 of our kids are at school. It doesn't seem to be working out that way. *sigh*

I think I need some kind of brain to blog transfer system. I have written some fabulous posts in my head and then never seem to have the time or inclination to type them up.

So much has been going on it would be silly of me to try and catch you up. Well, not silly... just really hard to do.

I have managed some making. I squeeze in a little here and there. Earlier in the year I was making a bunch of stuff for a Mother's Day stall at school. Then some more making for a market at school.

And I started crocheting classes. YAY! I have been wanting to learn how to crochet since starting this blog ... And I have even attempted it a couple of times. A friend tipped me off to a lovely lady in town who was giving lessons so I jumped in and took a couple of classes. Precious "me" time and learning a new skill at the same time. It was so fun! I got to sit around with like minded people and chat about crafty things. I loved it. So much so that I am going back to learn how to make some crochet Christmas decorations.

... Sorry. Did I startle you by saying Christmas out loud? The decorations are out in the shops already so I know you must have noticed that it is coming again. How on earth did that happen!

I am hoping to make a bunch of crocheted stuff for Christmas this year. Of course, my skill and speed may hold me back. I have a list of things I want to make. Perhaps I will set some smaller goals.

I was going to finish off this post by adding a photo but apparently my new laptop doesn't feel like it. I have no idea why it doesn't want to do it so let's pretend there is a lovely picture here of a crocheted dishcloth I made last week. Perhaps I can put up the real picture at some stage. :-)
