It’s 7 October so I’m only a week late with my round up of crochet in September. This is good going, I think.
In September I was mainly working on my Stripey Stash Smash. I love, love, love the result.
I joined the three panels with mattress stitch and edged it in linen stitch.
I wrote more about the colours and stripes in an earlier post, in case you want more detail. I finished it while visiting the country: the orchard was blooming and the sun was shining and it was all just lovely.

I also started work on a commission. A lovely friend has asked me to make a crocheted wall-hanging. I sketched out some ideas and sent them off to her. Then I had the task of turning a drawing into a pattern.
This is the drawing:
This is the work (so far):
It’s coming along nicely.
And now October is already nearly a quarter done! This month I have been sewing and have made two dresses, a new tote bag and six little earbud pouches you can carry on your key chain so that you always have your headphones when you need them. I don’t actually need six, but I got a whole heap of free zips and I was ON. A. ROLL.
I feel as though I do this stuff because I have a looming deadline for a writing assignment and I am therefore drawn to engage in what I like to call “Procrasti-crafting”. I’m sure I’m not the only one who finds themselves drawn to creative projects when they really should be doing something else, but I’ve yet to find a solution for it.
What about you? Are you a procrasti-crafter?
