dabbling ...

Dabbling is a much nicer way to say avoiding doing other things, don't you agree? I prefer to think of it as pursuing creative tangents. Anyway, here are a couple of things I've been dabbling in lately ...



A card - I wanted a really simple card to give to people who are lovely! What do you think?



My first granny square - Blue Bot says I mucked up the changing colours bit and the tension is yuck (he's right) ... this one will be undone and done again! I'm tempted to join up for Pip's craft challenge : A Granny a Day 2010 ... better practice some more first!

Today I MUST do some sewing. Have a good one, whatever you are doing!

The card is fabulous! As for your granny square, you may have mucked it up but it is still way better than I can do lol

Lovely card indeed, with a sweet sentiment. I do like 'dabbling', a nice way to say procrastinating or easily distracted. Love Posie

It's a very lovely card! And well done on the crochet - practice practice practice and all of a sudden it will be as simple as reading!

I've been calling it "gathering" as a way to excuse the "not yet settled back into work" feeling that's happening here.
I love the way crochet is so easy and almost pleasurable to unravel. Not like a seam of sewing, which is just annoying!
Enjoy your dabbling. (I must sew this weekend....)

Yes, the term dabbling is a very polite euphemism for procrastination! I'm going to cut down on the dabbling this year (or so I tell myself) but in honesty some of the best stuff comes from it... like that card, it's very sweet.

Dabbling is a wonderful way to procrastinate Nic!

I hope Blue Bot followed his "you mucked up the changing colours bit" with "but keep trying very hard. You're doing a great job for a new crocheter!".

And that card.... we'll, it's just lovely!

I love the lovely card and I'm sure your first granny is soooooo much better than mine was. I remember concentrating so hard and not being able to talk or listen at the same time. Go for your second and you'll start to feel it.
