So while there are so many projects I want to do, I don't have nearly enough time to do them all! Basically, this means… Continue reading How to decide?
Oh, it's only Wednesday. This week is taking such an incredibly long time to pass! Real life is seriously starting to interfere with my crochet time. Seriously.

Happy Monday, crafters! I've been down with some kind of flu bug these last several days. Nothing too bad for too long, but it's given me lots of downtime, which I've tried to use working on various projects. My yarn for my Hufflepuff throw blanket finally arrived so I've made some progress on that, and… Continue reading Progress Report: STEMinism Doll Set
