So I am back with some wood burning progress for my bobbins. (See the first post here!) I have ordered some thread for them so I hope to be done soon so they can actually be used. At this point I’m halfway finished them all! Unfortunately I haven’t had much time so it a slow process.… Continue reading Bobbin Decorating II
More progress on my blanket! Currently doing the blue stars and then finally purple at the end. I make about 2 stars/day at this rate due to work but at least there’s some progress happening. At this rate it’ll be done in 5 million years… I’ve been thinking I should start joining them together so I… Continue reading Star Blanket Progress II
Alright, so I went ahead and set up a whole bunch of fancy social networking accounts and linked them together into a large web of ME. Lovely, isn’t it. Now I just sit here and wait for people to come. Or something like that.
But really, I may have just sold my soul to the internet…
So its been a while since I got to really do any crafts due to moving but I was able to finally do a progress photo of my Star Blanket! Well… its not quite a blanket yet. Im still in the process of making all my stars first before joining them all together. As you… Continue reading Star Blanket Progress I
Today is the first day I am a grown-up. I moved my belongings to a new apartment with all new furniture to the heart of Montreal and I guess this is where it begins.
I’ve lived here before for a few co-op terms from school but those were always short term, 4 months each, and then I always went back to school. Now I am done school and I don’t think it has quite hit me yet. It still kind of feels like I’ll go back. I think I’ll give it some time and maybe soon I’ll feel more mature!
My favorite part though so far was buying fancy furniture I liked. Also buying plants. I love my plants.
I think overall this is going to be great. First day of full-time employment starts tomorrow! 😄
My grandma gave me 25 pairs of wooden bobbins to use for Bobbin Lacing a while back and my mom recently taught be how to use them! I am super excited to start using them but felt that they first needed a little bit more personality before I started. I decided that since they are not… Continue reading Bobbin Decorating I
One of my favorite paintings I’ve done so far. I love how the water turned out! Thank you Bob Ross for the inspirations and clever way to paint waves like this. I will be doing more like this in the future. I used oils with a fan brush for the waves and palette knife for… Continue reading Crashing Waves
