getting crafty!

I am attempting to learn how to crochet. So far, I’ve learned how to make a chain…oh and a single crochet and a double crochet stitch. I am so impatient when it comes to learning new things. I feel like I am never going to get the hang of it. I want to make adorable baby booties and hats now, dang it! But right now, I can’t even complete a dish cloth LOL. I did get a bit crafty and painted some empty wine bottles. We had some left over silver metallic spray paint and I thought it would look really pretty on the bottles. It turned out pretty good and now all I have to do is decorate them. I am not that crafty but I wanna be! I think I have an idea for one of the bottles, I just need to get the right colors of paint. I’ll post pictures once I’m done. I see people selling things like that all the time around here, so who knows, maybe it could turn into making a little spending money. I need to find someone who is throwing out wine bottles. Most people I know don’t keep them. I drink wine, but not enough to keep me in constant supplies of wine bottles lol. I guess now I have an excuse to buy some more though haha. I’m totally not a wino, but I do enjoy a glass a few nights a week so I can unwind. My favorite has been Moscato D’asti. Those bottles always have the prettiest shape. The color doesn’t really matter because I’ll be painting over it. I hope to get another bottle this week so I’ll have something else to paint 🙂 .

    I have been crafting for 40+ yr and to me it is relaxing, stress relieving and fun. I love to go to thrift stores and will pick up items for what they will become not what they are.

  2. I used to know how to crochet- somehow I forgot. I am a quilter though. Beware crafting you will love every minute of it:)
