As far as crafting was concerned, for me this week was all about moderating the “Craft as Therapy”-instagram account, something I really, really enjoy doing.
I’ve blogged about this wonderful community before – here and here is where you’ll find these posts.

For the past couple of weeks each moderator has chosen a specific topic, that followers are asked to post photos of. For instance, what’s your favorite color, or how do you store your craft supplies.

Now you know I’m not big on choosing …… but this is exactly what I’ll have to do at the end of this day. I have to pick just 4 fabulous makes out of more than 200 fan-tas-tic projects…… impossible to do, really ……

In next week’s “Follow-up Friday” I’ll show you my fave four (that yet have to be determined…..).

Apart from the time spent on the “Craft as Therapy”-account, I worked on my “Crochet Mood Blanket”. I added quite a few rows, my basket holds considerably less rectangular grannies.
In fact, I just counted: only 45 more to join: yay!

I’m leaving you with a little teaser of tomorrow’s “ta-dah” project, a picture of a tester motif……maRRose - CCC --- Moya Star Shaw-19Wishing you a wonderful weekend already, and I do hope to see you here again tomorrow!
