Crafting and making

I had an audible subscription for a few months and I bought the book ‘Every Tool’s a Hammer’ by Adam Savage. Since I listen to audio books or podcasts when I am at work, I know I didn’t exactly pay full attention to it. I’m thinking I’ll listen to it while on the treadmill in the next few weeks. I know for sure that I will be able to pay attention that way.

I know that listening to this audio book the first time had me wanting to make a lot more than just my crochet projects. It made me see that writing was also making things, albeit things with words.

It also made me miss the woodworking that I used to do, back before life got busy and I forgot that I like to craft with things other than yarn or other approved feminine media.

So today, I think I’m going to spend some time drafting out a corner shelf for my bathroom, because that’s what we need, and that’s what I want to do. I’m pretty sure I have a notebook with graph paper that I can use as well. I remember having one somewhere.

After that, I’ll have to look at whether I have the components to make it, but I doubt it since my step-son left the wood for the shelves outside and they got rain damaged.

It’s all good, I can at least get a start on it, and then work on the baby afghan that my husband volunteered that I make for one of his former coworkers. Her baby shower is this weekend, but it already won’t be ready by then.
