This heart’s for you

red filet crochet heart motif

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?

  2. I completely understand the winter doldrums. I never feel like doing much in the winter. I’m just hoping to keep up with my project quilting challenges and all of the bloggy stuff I’ve gotten myself into.

    1. This new NaBloPoMo theme will probably overwhelm my ability to keep up on all the projects I have brewing. Good luck to you and your quilting.
