Here is a metal toolbox of sorts that Clint made in his metal shop. It turned out beautifully and looks better than the things I find in the store.
So as you can see I am surrounded by incredibly gifted people who share their gifts and talents with me. Now I'm not trying to say I don't have any talents because I think I do, they are just not those visible artistic talents that I've always longed for. The past 10 years or so I have tried my hand at crocheting. I have spent hours trying to decipher directions and practicing stitches. I am not like my grandmother who can whip out a full size blanket in a weeks time. My blankets often take 2-3 years to complete and I'm always amazed that I was able to do it. They are not the best looking blankets in the world but I work at it-what I'm saying is, it doesn't come naturally. The more I do the more confidence I have gained. I mostly have made these blankets for my children, but every once in a while I'm brave enough to make one for someone else besides my children. Here are a few blankets I have made that past couple of years.
