Well I did intend on writing a post last night about how incredibly hard it is to do a long stretch of solo parenting, and how much I totally take my hat off to people who do it full time, BUT I was so damn tired last night because of the solo parenting that I just couldn't put anything in to words.
So instead here I find myself only blogging when there is another meme to join in on.
BUT I do have a pressing question which you, the crafty community via Kirsty's place, might have an answer to ...
What on earth kind of craft can you do on a plane these days?
Knitting? Probably not. Those knitting needles have quite pointy tips. Hand quilting or embroidery? A no-brainer for the "NO" category really considering how sharp those needles are (and whilst comforting, probably not really practical to cart a massive quilt around).
And so I wondered about crochet? Does that little bent end turn it from being a scary weapon with which one would be capable of hijacking a plane (?) into a harmless crafty tool with which one can wile away the hours on a long haul flight?
Yes folks, I believe I am ready to branch out to the world of crochet having been completely inspired by the likes of Melanie, Tania, Tam, Kate and .... I could go on and on. So I splashed out and bought a hook at the recent Spotlight sale and figured - if it's ok with Qantas - I might just indulge in a spot of crochet whilst being held captive in an economy seat for over 20 hours**.
I'd be very interested (like, very interested) to hear any stories or suggestions you may have for in flight craftiness!
Hey we could create a new mile high club for crafters - or not ;)
Fly on over to Kirsty's place for some more creative spaces ... that are more than likely on land.
* at the end of the week and a half of solo parenting I will be joining the Mr, *gulp* sans children, in Germany and then the UK ... actually probably just London.
** admittedly, the idea of sitting on my backside with nothing else to do but read, watch movies, nap and (hopefully), craft for over 20 hours is the part of the trip I am looking forward to the most.
