Ruffle Scarves

Sept 21

I have been in a bit of a slump in regards to paper crafting lately.  Actually, for the better part of the past year.  I miss sitting down and creating a scrapbook layout or card but there is just a lack of inspiration.  I hope to jump back in soon as I love sharing our memories.  However, I have a creative outlet since I have been crocheting for a few years now. 

I finally learned how to crochet using the Red Heart Sashay yarn.  It looks almost like ribbon and as you work with it, it pulls apart and ruffles up. And the ruffle scarves work up so quickly!  I made 3 of them this weekend.  They take about 90 minutes each and I worked on them as we watched a movie and a little bit of football.  I have a hard time just sitting so crochet helps pass the time and I get to make pretty things. 

My girls love scarves and now have scarves to match their cute fall jackets.  I love making them things they are like.  It is a win/win for the Gibson girls.  Now, I really need to finish up the afghan I am making for a wedding gift and I have some ends to weave in on my brother’s Christmas gift.  So, even If I haven’t been scrapping, I have been making gifts for my family and friends.  And I am okay with that…for now.

How do you get out of a crafty slump?
