Keep Calm Craft On {crafting on}

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The act of creating, in one form or another, preserves my sanity amongst the chaos of life. This explains why I always have more than one project going at a time as well as why my housework tends to fall behind. I enjoy seeing what others are working on and keeping calm with, too. What are you creating? What is keeping you going? Snap a picture or two, post i on your blog, on Instagram #craftingon and/or Flickr and then share it with the rest of us by leaving your link below.

Welcome to the great rip-out of 2016. This frogging really should have happened years ago but only now do I feel I can muster the strength to go through with it. This knitted farmyard playmat was started back in March 2008 when I was pregnant with C and actually when I first started this blog. You can see my really old and goofy posts about it here. I was just learning how to knit then and joined a group of eleven other women in making these playmats for our children. We each had one square we had to knit and then we traded them all when we were finished so that we would all have one of each. We seemed to have different measurements though and our squares were all quite different in size. I tried sewing them all together but it just wasn’t working out so there it sat on a shelf or in a box moving from house to house for the past eight years. As I sat at my desk pondering Christmas gifts for the children I spotted it out of the corner of my eye. Wouldn’t it be nice, I thought, if I could finally get that project finished and gift it to Baby F for Christmas? Well, that thought was all I needed because now I am ripping it all out one square at a time and hoping to have it finished in time. If not, Baby F’s birthday is a month after Christmas.

What are you working on? Happy creating!
