It's incredible how much a wrist injury slows a crafty lady down!!!  I zoomed through so many projects in January & February, and then March was soooo slooowwww.  I'm still making stuff, just at a much slower pace.  Knitting, embroidery & crochet are next to impossible but luckily, I've been able to continue hand building in pottery and have some new stuff to show off:

Here is a gigantic bowl that I made for my stepdad for his birthday~ I started/formed it at the beginning of the month and finished it March 28th.  What a process!  He absolutely loved it and I'm glad that it survived Cheesy

I actually used a glaze called "Sapphire Blue" on it, and was pretty surprised to find a green/brown bowl ~ some mistakes work out well Smiley

Here is a candy dish & a box that I LOVE Smiley

The box is extra cool because I actually used a crocheted doily to make the texture in the clay... was neat to combine mediums.  The bright blue in the base of the dish was created by putting clear glass marbles in the bottom of the bowl before the final firing...  Apparently the melted glass draws the colour from the glaze - Another unexpected success!

And with my beginner's luck, I've also created some horribly (horribly) ugly disasters  Angry
A bread plate & butter dish that look like a monster puked on them and then dipped them in some toxic swamp water


And some dip dishes gone wrong.  (This was the depressing class when I first learned that I don't have the patience required for glazing)

The white-ish side is white/goldy and the purple-ish side is purple/bright blue.  NOT good colour combos.  At all.  These pieces are all currently in the kiln being refired with different glazes and will hopefully have different results!

I have a few other finished projects, but can't find the pictures.  That's enough for now, anyway!  Pottery has been dominating my list and so I've changed my #12 from 'clay ornaments' to now read 12/ Miscellaneous pottery projects.  Should have thought of that sooner!!

ha ha ha monster puke dishes...at least you can laugh about it and learn

but...the texture on the green bowl and the blue doily bowl are fabulous!

I love textured pottery...it is fun to guess what the artist used to make the pattern!

Koreena - I love your step dads bowl. Glazing is a completely different art form from throwing and hand building. You almost need a separate class. There's nothing like taking your time to make a fabulous shaped piece and then ruining it with glazing. I should know  Roll Eyes glaze too thick that my sgraffito couldn't even be seen. Gorgeous coiled baking dish that ended up beige (I hate beige) and little jug that should have had black flowers with pink background, just a load of awful pink and black splodges! I have some stuff awaiting re-glazing too, never done this before, but can't look worse than it already did.  Grin

Gorgeous sock wool kookie.

These are a couple of pictures of the scoodie I recently finished for one of my Pay it Forward projects!


Here it is folded up.


With the hood more visible. 

It's really purple but in this picture it looks a bit more blue-grey.  I'm hoping she likes it.  Cheesy

And as soon as my partners in the IYP swap receive I'll be posting pictures of those projects as well!

Kookaloo, you got some awesome yarn! I was just at the yarn shop this evening for a class and was eyeing up that same yarn (just different colorway!).

Koreena, I love your pottery! It's really making me want to look in to taking another pottery class.

I have multiple projects in the works. Tonight I took part 1/3 for learning how to knit magic loop socks. I'm super stoked about it, because socks are the main reason I wanted to learn to knit in the first place!

I've also started to unravel a sweater that I got at the thrift store today. I got 3 sweaters in light colors to unravel. Then, I plan on dyeing them something fun!

I'm hoping to use Friday (daycare's closed!) to finish up a few projects. *crosses fingers*

I have finished some items, but I can't show you them until my partners receive.  I'm up to 44 projects complete for the year! If I would actually finish all of my WIPs, I'd be over 50.  Roll Eyes

Indigo_roses...I have purchased a lot of that yarn but not for socks! Cheesy  The colors are just so vivid and beautiful...I could live in that yarn shop...sounds like you are enjoying your knitting classes!

Wow--you are a crafting machine!  I think there are a few others like you that are near 50 or even beyond!  That is incredible!

Ffrogg526--love the scoodie...I have made fabric ones and always thought a crochet or knit one would be pretty neat...and it is!  I have a pattern from 1974 that I have been meaning to try...just haven't found the right yarn for it...I like your two colors a lot...

Koreena I love your pottery, especially the blue candy dish and the bowl for your Stepdad.

Ffrogg526 nice scoodie  Smiley

I can't seem to settle to anything at the moment, I have things half sewn, half crocheted and half knitted  Roll Eyes
I might give painting a try just to have something else I won't finish  Wink

Koreena - that pottery is awesome.  Love the first piece and the little box.  Your texture is the perfect accent.

Love the scoodie, too, Ffrogg!

I finished a bohemian mixed-media (kinda) bracelet over the weekend during a craft day with a friend.  She found some bracelets on Etsy that we decided to mimic.  Here's mine:





The pics are kind of washed out,  Undecided  but you get the idea.
