What im working on

Hello to all!! Just thought i would write a to-do list, for me and to let ya'll know what i will be up to.. unless i get some commissions.. :) they take over when i have them!

so, right now:
1. Knitting a skull sweater for my son, i have the back piece finished, and the front piece i am working on, already on the color work for the skull!

2. The Christmas gifts for my nephews and my niece, which are crochet.

3. found a wonderful pattern for a doily. Will be making it for my mother and my mother in law with some candles like i did last year.
and this year, i am wanting to make this one:

4: working on drawing more Christmas cards for DeviantArt holiday card project. 

Im also gonna be working on a cross stitch that was giving to me many many years ago from my aunt.. and i messed up on it and stopped working on it. Found it in my mother's shed while looking for christmas stuff, and im gonna be ripping out the old stitching and re-stitching it. 

Also, been playing guitar again, working on remembering a few songs, and getting back in the hang of playing. 

Well, thats about it!! Any suggestions, tips, requests, feel free to comment!!

Comments

  1. Figured i would comment since your blog seems to be much like mine comment wise im doing this anon since im sure posting as my blog name would link back and you might not want that kinda linkage...Most people don't.

    Anyway with your knowledge you could always start posting tips along side your projects to give you more to post about.

    People love free tips or advice.

    Always having content to post about is in my opinion one of the hardest things a blogger faces.

    Although that is up to you how you manage your blog also to boost your popularity you should seek out affiliates, People who promote your site on their site. That is if you have not already done so.

    That can really bring the traffic in.

    Anyway just some advice and a comment from an anon.
