Do you sew/knit/crochet? I can crochet and cross stitch but I rarely have time for either, so no projects in the works right now. I started a blanket for Akadia before she was born, but that never got done. I have the "ability" just not the attention span to do nice work. I like seeing other people's projects though.

I'm not good with sewing and only know how to use a needle and thread, no sewing machines. I cannot knit or crochet (these are like the only crafty things I don't know how to do!

I am working on a stocking for Sean. Here is what it's supposed to look like when done:

I'm not putting the sequins on, though.

I sew a little, but I'm not that good at it. The sewing part I'm okay with, but I hate the ironing and pressing that goes with it..

I don't have any pics of anything I've done. Pretty much all I've sewn are shorts for DS. I do think I'll get back into it when this baby is born because it will be a lot more fun (and probably easier) to sew little dresses.

My mom has tried to teach me to crochet. She's very good at it, but I could not catch on to that at all.
Thank you Babydoll213 for the precious siggy!

I started this cross stitch pattern a month ago, only to realize last week that I had the cloth going the wrong way!!!

I had the center square done, and was working on the middle right block when I realized what I had done. There's is NO WAY I'm picking out all that thread, and I really don't have it in me to start all over.

Maybe I can find a smaller pattern to work on. I just don't think pregnancy brain and counted cross stitch go hand in hand.

I know how to use a sewing machine, I'm just not good at it lol I was planning on making the crib bedding, with my moms help, but she nicely hinted it would take way too long if I helped lol. She's totally right, it probably would never get done before baby got here! So she's going to make it all for me, maybe I'll help her pin things or something lol

My sewing is passible, but not great. I knit and crochet and work on garments (pants, hats, sweaters, etc). Right now, I am working on wool pants for William and hats for a friends business (she pays me a flat rate per hat-she has a newborn prop business that is very busy).

I think my sewing urges kicked into high gear with this pregnancy! I have 3 quilt tops I'm working on, sewed most of a maternity dress today with fabric for 5 more maternity outfits waiting! Also have patterns and fabric waiting for summer dresses for DD. Of course, this could have something to do with the fact that DH just got me a new sewing machine! :-) I don't have anything finished to show pictures yet!
