I LOVE that hoop, sB!!!  The green is SO electric, is it like that in real life, or is that as a result of your mad photog skillz?  LOL!  Love it nonetheless.

Thanks, all, for the well wishes on getting over the hump on the craft blues.  I'm going to a friend's house for a Stella and Dot trunk show today...maybe some of those items will fuel my jewelry creation fire and get me to create something for me!  I have several projects cut out that are to be for ME, maybe I can whip one of those up to make me feel better Smiley

TSM - the color is pretty accurate if maybe slightly less vibrant. I used watercolors to VERY CAREFULLY add in color. I was sure to go very slowly this time, as last time I tried it the color bled too much.

ha ha I would be ok with a picture of a clown...I will just skip it quick, so please post your costume j_kievet! Cheesy

Love the hoop--kinda reminds me of the plant in Little Shop of Horrors...Cheesy

sheepblue--are you using regular watercolors or watercolor pencils?  It is gorgeous...

I think we all get in a funk...it is part of being artisitic...the highs are high and the lows are lows...just no one cut off their ear...

The first time I tried it, I used watercolor pencils. This time I used watercolors from a tube so the color is way more concentrated.

Tube watercolors are the best...that is why you got such great intense colors!

Ah, there we go!  No hair and makeup will just make it a fun outfit and not clown-a-riffic so much Smiley  Thanks for considering all us scaredy-cats Cheesy

Here's my recent 2 endeavors, shorts and dusting mitts.  Gotta add the mitts to my 50 list and kick something else off...





Shorts are dark peach calcutta cloth and quilter's cotton, respectively.  The mitts are burgundy fleece, straight stitched around and edges pinked down to a scant 1/4" or so all around.  Since fleece doesn't fray, I figured not turning these and trimming the seam allowance would make them more neat looking.  Fleece gets a bit lumpy when turned if it's not a stuffed animal or a clothing item of some sort.  I love these mitts, I think now that I have this set of 3 and the bonus dust cloth (I had to do something with that leftover square!) I will do a lot more dusting.  The fleece really holds in the funk, then just shake outside and keep going when it's too covered to do it's job well Cheesy  Toss in the wash to clean!  I claimed some more fleece from an ongoing swap I'm in, so I will likely have an entire multi-color dust mitt army soon.

great idea J_Kieviet! I felt bad for saying all your hard work terrified me!

Loving the dust mitts TSM - what a good idea. Dust plays havoc with my skin, so those would be great for me - think I've just found another project, lol!! I've also been reading the old knitalong sampler quilt posts - so many great patterns, I want to make a start on of one those two.

I've finally finished the boring socks - I just don't have the patience for such thin wool and needles unless the pattern is complicated enough to hold my attention, and these weren't!

Sorry for the poor quality pics - it's really hard to take a good picture of your own feet! The pics don't show it too well, but in the top half of the rib, there is a sparkly pink thread knitted in there for extra prettiness. The variation in the wool wasn't quite what I was after, but it's OK, and the birthday girl loved them which is what it's all about, eh?




Considering how bored I was, I'm partway through another pair (for me this time!) in chunkier fair isle effect wool and I'm loving it! I intended to use circular needles, but I tried, and failed - again!!!

I'm working up the courage to go to a local knitting group tomorrow, so if I manage it, I might find someone that can show me in the flesh!

Right, better go - should be doing homework - does Craftster count as research??  Roll Eyes
