I had a "light-bulb moment" today - and if you are a craft nerd, pay attention.
For some strange reason I decided to start on another crochet blanket yesterday (remember the Giant Granny Square blanket). I think it was a combination of inspiration from Attic24, and also the fact that crafting helps keep me sane.
When the kids are going crazy, the bird is squawking, dinner is overdue and the washing pile looks like a monster, hiding somewhere and hooking a few rows helps to calm my nerves (wow - I really do sound like an addict).
But I don't just want to have to hide away to craft, it's really nice to be able to take it with you when you go visit friends and family, when you are out at a park or beach... it's not just something to be done behind the secret curtain.
The problem is that some of us crafting peeps are a bit shy when it comes to doing our thing in public... especially if we experience a bit of taunting from the "non-crafters" out there in the world (remember my crochet persecution?). I know there are others out there - so I came up with a plan!
I have made myself a goal for over the next little while, and I want you all to feel free to get involved. I am going to make crafting in public cool again (hehee) and you guys are all welcome to join in!!!
I have created a flickr group for the photo's to be added to, or else you can email me your photo and I will post them right here on my blog.
The details are all here on the flickr group: Craft Nerds Going Public! but remember, photo's of you crafting at your Nana's house aren't counted!
Looking forward to recording my journey - and seeing some of you get involved too!
