So this is what I did this weekend … jump from project to project! The yarn was dyed at a little workshop that one of my Ravelry friends held at her house .. it’s some Tofutsi sock yarn. I’m the only one who only dyed one skein of wool – but then that’s probably because I know the dangers of a fabric stash, LOL. I don’t need a yarn one too … yet.
Fuchsia, aqua, and grape – yummy!
Then I made myself a couple of little square bottomed drawstring project bags to hold my knitting in. The light blue/purple bag is made from some fabric I overdyed last summer. I used a mix of two tutorials I found online for that one. The next one is a mix of 3 different tutorials and my own ideas. I like that style best. I’m probably going to have my Ravelry friends over for a bag making day next month sometime. One way to use up my miles and miles of fabric!
Finally I did a little work on the collage … I can not paint! I put the shadow on the wrong side of the neck and I screwed up the hair with the brush strokes. Luckily I can paint over it all and try again! I also need to do more work to fix the shoulder line – but that’s getting better. I think this is going to be one of those long drawn out projects, LOL – or maybe a UFO!
Never too young to paint, eh? He didn’t enjoy this at all, LOL, but he sure loved the bath afterwards! He was making a background paper for his Mom to use in her scrapbook. I was an innocent bystander, I had nothing to do with this … well, other than be the official photographer, LOL. He is 8 months old today – time sure flies!
.. or something like that .. the Internet sure has let us cross borders without passports or visas or even being there physically … I got an email from Elena in Romania that she had found my free Blume pattern and had made this doll … isn’t she awesome? I love her costume!
