But it hurts so good!! All this warm weather makes me want to go buy a bolt of flowery fabric and make all the floofy skirts out of it. It also makes me want to go on walkabout and pick flowers from the ditch. And make muffins.

I've been working on that ever-so-hipst hexagon blanket like a mad woman. I want there to be progress to show if I get into the finals for the scholarship I entered it in. It's slow going, but just typing about it makes me want to go work on it some more. But alas, I have two more lectures to go to today. >.<

On the topic of hipster things, you will never guess what I purchased at the thrift store this weekend. Well...maybe you will. If you have been following me other places, you know that I have obsessively wanted an old Polaroid camera for quite some time now. Well, I finally got one! With my astounding investment of $2, I got a nice, working Polaroid One-Step with three pieces of ruined film in it. Needless to say, I need some film. Sadly is is oober expensive, considering it's not made anymore. So if any of you lovelies happens to have some old Polaroid 600 film lying around, I will gladly pay/crochet something for you in return!

I'm just really in luck when it comes to vintage machines lately! Those two antique sewing machines from the Sailor and now my Polaroid!! I must be blessed. Well, I am blessed. Vury. Vury. Blessed.

I sent off another Narwhal hat yesterday (to Canada!!) but I FORGOT TO TAKE PICTURES!!! It was a really cute one: white with a neon blue horn. Oh well, just imagine it. I also have a few derpy lil AFF (art for fun) drawings I did with some very fun inks I got for my b-day (no for real, I love that Sailor so much) that I will post eventually. If anybody is really dying to see more of my silly arts.

So, how are you all?? Has spring finally sprung where you are living? Been crafty? Tell me!

You and your thriftiness! A gal after my own heart. :XD: Who wants to go to a high end store when there are so many treasures hidden away in the tiny, used-items shops? :D

You must post pictures of this blanket when you finish. It sounds amazing! :la:

I agree!!! I hate paying full price for anything. Bargain shopping is a delightful curse.

I will have to post some more pics of it soon. It's sloooooooowwww going. For real. :) But I have half of the motifs done for the next round.

Have you seen these: [link]

They make new Polaroids now that you can buy film for! I've been wanting one for quite some time. Sorry, I don't have any film :(

Oh, I laughed my ass off when I read the first paragraph of your journal. I feel that way too, except mine would read something like: The beautiful weather makes me want to go outside and camp and crochet wonderful things for all my friends and bake lovely tarts and pastries. And raise chickens. :XD:

Unfortunately school has been keeping me busy. I plan on finishing some yoga socks someone ordered today before the... stuff starts hitting the fan with school again. :lol:

Take Care! :w00t:

Ohhh my goodness I love camping. And chickens!!!! I will have to write a blog sometime about my sad saga about raising chickens. I always wanted them...

School has a way of doing that. I always joke about dropping out and crocheting forever more. I shall have to stalk your gallery to see those socks. I looove yoga socks. Crocheted?
MadeWithLove8 Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yep, crocheted but not posted yet. I think I will get that done tomorrow morning sometime? :lol: this weekend for sure! They were interesting to crochet, I've never really tried anything like that before! :dance: but they turned out nicely I think!

I need to raise chickens... then take them camping. HAHA! :excited:

My curiosity is peaked...I want to see these magical sock!! Did you use a pattern?

And lolololol camping chickens!!! YESSS
MadeWithLove8 Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
No I just looked at an image to get an idea... this is the first time I've done that. But really, what's a sock without a heal and a toe? A pair of tubes really. ;P

here's the deviation: [link] :w00t:
