I blame cabin fever.
It’s not particularly cold where I live – not compared to my Yankee neighbors’ snow storms, but it’s been rainy and I’ve been staying in more than usual. I miss my daily walks, though I still get them in when the weather breaks.
Without any little ankle-biters to wrangle, I needed something to while away my day… so, I signed up to participate in BlogHer’s February NaBloPoMo. The theme for the month is “Make.”
Using that as the impetus to get out of my doldrums, I hope to indulge my other creative hobbies. Other than writing and photography, I like to crochet, and make jewelry. I cook when the spirit moves me… even attempted to bake French baguettes for a cheesy-sausage dip I wanted to make for our Super Bowl fête.
If my attempts at artistry are successful, I’ll share – all 28 days worth.
Since Valentine’s Day is also celebrated this month (and because I have a glut of yarn), I’m making a few hearts to pass around.
This is the first project, a filet crocheted heart, and it’s about half finished. I’ll add a frou-frou edging later to make it a little fancier.
What will you make this month? What are your hidden artistic talents?
