The main reason for me taking a break is that I've been working full time and finding it very hard to get the time to craft or do anything much esle. I'm really missing crafting so kinda sad about that. However, I have been making my sock monkeys and kitties and a few other bits and pieces when I get the chance.
I've been reading abit more lately as well - not sure if I've mentioned it before but I'm a huge True Blood fan so have read the whole set of those books as well as re-watching the whole 4 seasons again!! I also like The Walking Dead so have been watching that as well. I like most Vampire, Werewolf and Zombie themed tv shows but have never got into The Twilight movies - just find them tame and no story, they just don't appeal to me!! Anyway, a work colleague who is also abit of a vamp/wolf geek has now introduced me to anthor author Patricia Briggs so I am now working my way through the Mercy Thompson stories!!
I've made some bag charms to tie into the Vamp theme as well
I've made lots of sock animals leading up to Christmas and most can be seen in the gallery on my Facebook Page - you will also find the bag charms there as well if anyone is interested :)
Here's a sock monkey that I've just finished
