Its nearly 2016, and this year my goal is to get back to blogging. Nearly every day I work on a new project and every time I make something my husband says "did you blog that?" Well no, I have not been........but I'd like to share them with you and maybe I'll give you some ideas! Here are a few of the things I've done in 2015:
We had a grandbaby! And that means baby clothes, like this cute little onesie and skirt I made. Yes, you will probably be seeing lots of cute baby pictures too, I'll try to contain myself.
Told ya so.
I learned a Viking type of knitting, called Naalbinding......its done with a large wood or bone needle and wool yarn. I've been making hats.
I made a lot of new soap! I also designed a new line of Viking dolls. Did you know real vikings didn't have horns on their helmets?
These are just a few of the projects I did this past year, along with moving to a new home near Des Moines, IA. This year I have many new projects in the works.......sewing more of my own clothing and of course clothes for my grand daughter, dehydrating food, mushroom hunting, learning to carve bone and wood, baking whole grain bread, new soaps, and many more I haven't even thought of yet! Some of my projects are part of what I do in my historical re-enactment hobby where I am a merchant in Venice, Italy. I also study Viking crafts and clothing because that is what my husband portrays. Other projects, like sewing tents and hi tech hiking gear are commission sewing, and yet others are the result of too much time on Pinterest.
If you enjoy experimenting with new things and going new places, leave a comment! I'd love to hear what other people are working on too. Lets learn and explore together!
