Good Morning Internet Friends!
Seriously, it is morning and I am still up and probably will be for a few hours yet.
A little known fact about me is that contrary to common belief I actually am in my right mind. I grew up with two south paw influences both of whom were perfectionists. I do scribe with my right hand as I had difficulty committing to a hand as a child and it was decided that the right hand would write cleaner.
I blame my inability to follow directions on this state of right mind. I am not known for doing what I am told ☺ and that includes my craft projects. I have a LOT of difficulty following the steps in the order the author has put them out. A lot of times I sew items after I have assessed how they came to be and then do my own thing. Same for knitting, I will look at the visual pattern, determine what I NEED to know to create and carry on. On top of that I also like to be unique ☺
Over the past few weeks/months I have been making Knitting Pouches with Sharon's pattern for 4Paws Quilting & Knitting. It is a great pattern and the instructions are really easy to follow......but of course me being me......I do not like to do the same thing more than a couple of times.
"Sew" last evening while making my most current one for a Knit Along I will be participating in later this week I decided to make it more "Kathy":
I added a sheep button on a leather pull string to make it my own. Plus, the sheep buttons make me happy. ☺
Hope this inspires your own creativity...
