Going a little stir crazy. (Or why I need a crafty type project)

It’s very important to have some sort of creative outlet. I’ve been going a little bit crazy not having something to keep my fingers busy and my mind creative, and there’s nothing quite like the satisfaction of finishing an object. I’ve always been a bit of a crafty type of person. I’m a keen knitter, but that doesn’t suit my current climate. So I thought I might swap needles!

That’s right I’m thinking of taking up embroidery, and this kit might be the perfect place to start. In the China Town/Sushi Bar combo, as a nod to my current Asian location.
What do you think? Could this be my new craft?

Presents!!

Completely unexpectedly, my darling friend (who is also very crafty!) 2paw, made this cute little zippy-up bag as a going away present! It was discussed which knitting projects would fit in it and thought that a very small pair of socks might and maybe I will use it for that. But for now it’s for all my little treasures that I’m taking with me when I venture overseas! I’ll show you later what I’m keeping in here.

And in my life today…

I lunched today with the awesome knitters that I love to knit with. We dined out at our local Milkbar, a new café that does organic food and makes a great cuppa. They are also quite crafty over there so our knitting group was fine and dandy sitting out the back around the large workshop table.

This was the last time I’ll be seeing the awesome knitters, as I’m moving in a few weeks to Malaysia. I haven’t mentioned the move here yet because I have been really distracted about it and, honestly, it’s a fricken scary thing to do. Anyway, as I won’t be seeing the knitters I thought it only right to take lots of photos. Here are a few:

 

 

Have a Happy Thursday!
