A crafting slow down

I have fallen into the void of little to no crafting.  Crocheted so much on vacation that I don't want to touch a hook for awhile, knitting the scarf started to bore me, the Mr. ended up in the hospital for 3 days when we got back from vaca with a kidney infection and all I wanted to do or had the energy to do was play 'Angry Birds' on my ipod(embarrassed to admit) and read which I'm proud to admit.  I finished Tana French's latest book, "Faithful Place",  "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett and started "The Spaces Between Us"by Thrity Umrigar today.

I did actually managed to rekindle my interest in finishing the 'Disappearing 9 Patch' quilt for me as it is full of imperfections, and starting a new quilt top which will be gifted.  I got my inspiration from Oh Fransson and am doing the "Wonky Cross" pattern that she has a tutorial for on her blog.

 I hope this gets me back on track with the craftiness.


  1. Thanks Caryl W! I'm pretty pleased with myself.

  2. That's an amazing quilt and ~ what's more ~ it seems someone has disappeared behind it!

    Sorry to hear things have been rocky.... Hope things are going better now.

    Just you wait, the first gust of cold wind and your knitting mojo will be back ;)
