To craft or not to craft?

This is a daily question for me at the moment.

So far I have been choosing to continue with the crafting. But it’s a daily struggle and I kinda just want to call it quits – especially on days like today where it is rainy and cold and my mood is on the low side.

Thankfully I have fun things like this to craft.

Sailing the sorrows away

The rain reminds me that it is ok to be sad.

A constant trickle from the sky,
reminds me that the clothes won’t dry.
The walls will sigh with spots of mould.
Days will be grey and old.

The rain reminds me that I can feel sad.

A fun skateboard I will not ride
no tricks will be performed outside.
Inside no progress will be made,
and all good plans become delayed.

The rain reminds me that there is hope.

I’ll make my rain into puddles
I’ll enjoy all the warm cuddles
Though my board is not a boat
Even if my board will not float

I’ll sail away anyway…..

Baby Shoes on a Boat

Tonight I decided to do a twist on the boat theme, and I attempted to crochet these boat shoes.

Ideally they would look something like this:

I made a mistake somewhere along the line however, and it didn’t quite work….

Looks like I’ll just have to try again!
