Have you been? Oh you should!
I never really got into etsy, I haven’t given it enough of a chance possibly…
But the other week on Facebook someone shared craftsy’s status about a giveaway, so I registered and liked the Facebook page but didn’t really explore, then I was going through my emails the other night and actually read their weekly email the patterns mentioned in it were enough to entice me!

I now have a wish list on there as long as my arm, and there are free patterns on there too. And I discovered that now I’ve installed the kindle app on my iPad I can download & “open in kindle” and it actually puts it on my kindle too! I did not know I could do that & I love being able to have patterns on my kindle!

Here is my current favourite “want to make”

Love love love it!!

Tweeeeet

I can’t sleep so I’ve just set up a twitter account, linked it to my blog, so now no one can read it or see my tweets :p

I had a message today from a friend asking for a basic idea for how to do a kindle cover and I was gutted that I haven’t finished the one that I’m halfway through, therefore haven’t even started writing out the pattern, or seeing if it’s readable, or if people would even like how the case turns out!

I’ve got abit of a “thing” for using double crochets to join things together instead of sewing, I think it can look prettier and depending on how I want it to look either show off the top of the DC or have it show the underside of the stitch so that it looks like I’ve sewn it. I’ll have to take pictures to show you!

Tonights crocheting didn’t really happen. Little H is still out of sorts and then once I got him into bed I couldn’t settle mj but I did manage to sew some ends in, but remembered toretake pictures first, there’s something satisfying about seeing all of the yarn ends waiting to be sewn in, knowing you did all that. Although I normally get a feeling of dread at the same time, sewing all those ends in just doesn’t hold my attention, I feel myself itching to start on the next bit/something new!

Tomorrow I’m hoping to do a full picture update from the laptop thus avoiding awful iPad autocorrects!

Oh & my twitter is @CCrochetMama. What’s yours? X
