Just wondered if there are any mums to be, mums or Ttc ladies that are into their arts and crafts. Since I found out I was pregnant I've been crocheting a blanket for the little one and been looking at making mobiles etc. I don't have the patience to knit clothes I don't think plus my mums a great knitter and is knitting away.
Last year I cable knitted bags as Christmas presents which was my proudest knitting achievement so I might attempt a cable knit arran for baby at some point
Just wondered what if any of you where making or crafting anything at the moment and what's your proudest crafting achievementExpecting our first child March 2014

I was going to make a thread just like this one! I do all sorts of things: historical costuming, lampshades, quilts, cards... At the moment I'm making a 16th century Italian outfit to go to Comicon with my friend. I also got the ok from my friend to go to Hampton Court Palace dressed in it
I'll post a picture when it's done.~Boys~

I'm into cross stitch. I made a birth sampler for my niece last year and plan on making one for my baby when I'm pregnant! Right now, I'm making a Christmas themed one!Alice - Beatrix - Clara - Daphne - Flora - Harriet - Mabel - Susannah

I did a cross stich elephant for Ayla's wall. I also made fitted bassinet sheets and cirtain ties. I had planned to do bunting and have been meaning to do a name sign for her but it hasn't happened. Ive made one skirt and a hat for her since she was born... I hope to sew simple dresses and tops for her, maybe soon Ill work out how people find the time!
I dabble in painting, sewing, and cross stitch And so far my scrap booked photo albums are pretty up to date. Yay!
My sister knits and my mum started quilting when A was born, she made a beatrice potter quilt which is pretty awesome!

I love crafts, though I'm quite far from mummahood.
I can knit but not that well. I have a scarf which I started about 2 years ago and is yet to be finished. It's about 5' long though so I'm quite proud of it! I mostly do paper stuff though. I've started my own version of Project Life because I can't afford the real one I make all my own journalling cards for it and I'd do seperate ones if any little babas come along in the future. I make personalised prints as well (like the type you can find on notonthehighstreet).
My proudest crafting achievement has to be my wooden blocks. I needed alphabet blocks for a photography project but couldn't find any decent ones in shops or online so I ordered plain wooden cubes on ebay, sanded them down, painted them, hand painted letters on them and finally varnished them I may have a pic somewhere...
