I keep forgetting my password to this account, and then have to wait til I remember it, because I also can't remember which email address I have attached to this account. I really should check now that I'm having a good memory week and am logged in!

Things I've been crafting lately: my craft-it-forward projects.  I finished the cross-stitch of Laura's owl, and am now just putting it into a patch she can sew onto a canvas bag or something like that. I'm half-way through a baby blanket for someone else, and have started Nay's piece of embroidery. (I'm doing a vibrant purple/green floral on an aida band, so it could be sewn onto a cushion maybe?) I'm trying to keep the pieces I'll have to send light. 
I also (finally!) finished Stacey and Sean's wedding card. It started as an engagement card, then turned into a wedding card, and I sent it off today as a post-honeymoon one! Oh well. 

Also, when I was doing my 'spend money online' binge, I bought two reprinted books of vintage crochet patterns. Lots of gloves, hats, belts and collars.  Very cool. I have several that I want to try. The hardest thing with these is yarn substitution. Luckily crochet yarns aren't quite as changeable as knitting yarns, certainly not the very fine cotton threads. One or two of the heavier weight yarns might be a hassle - I've found ones I want to try, but am not sure I can get them here in Aus.
