My Crochet Projects 2012

Today is one of those days when I feel the urge to organise things. As the house was already pretty tidy, I approached the dreaded task of organising the photos I’ve been uploading to my mac during the last months. It was then when I had the idea of creating a folder for all my crafty work (as I usually take the pics on my iPhone and they end up forgotten somewhere in the iPhone backup folder). So I now have all my work (well, most of it – I keep forgetting to take pics of EVERYTHING!) in one place.

I couldn’t help smiling as I went through the pics I took back in 2012 when I was rediscovering crochet… And my boyfriend though this would be a passing thing… he gave me one month max! LOL!

I made this blanket (got much bigger than this!) for my first “niece” – the daughter of one of by best friends. I started it before she was born so it was kind of weird making something with so much love for someone I still hadn’t met.

Crochet Granny Squares Blanket http://www.acraftyginger.com

My first granny square blanket – the squares were siting in a box until I had the courage to join them last year. You can read more about it here.

One of my 2014 resolutions will be to take pics of all the things I make. It feels great to go through them once in a while… it’s like looking back at holiday pictures and remembering the amazing times you had.

Do you take pics of all your work? Do you have a specific method for archiving them?
