Getting Back to Normal
These past few weeks have been a little crazy here in Seattle.
I think I'm finally coming down from my football high.
(yes, I love football AND crochet. :-)
I've been wanting to pick up my paintbrush again and work with watercolors.
I found a really great book that teaches you how to mix the paint.
I'm the kind of artist that thinks I need to stay within the lines and I hate that
about myself, so I'm working on it.
I've used watercolor before, but I paint so exact that the finished piece doesn't
even look like watercolor.
This book teaches you how to let one color run into the other.
I'm really enjoying the process.
My friend, Linda introduced me to this book, and I
finally finished it today. Loved it!
I'm thinking of Snow Falling on Cedars next, have you read it?
So, in my crochet world, I made a couple more tea towels, and
tried a different crocheted edging this time.
I also finished another doily.
I made this one for my sister. She likes hearts and red, so I hope she likes it!
I haven't mailed it to her yet, and she occasionally reads my blog, so
if you're reading this Cis, you'll have a surprise in the mail soon! xo
Finally, remember the afghan in blues that I'm crocheting? Well, I'm putting all the
squares together, but I've also started this baby girl afghan for a friend.
80 little flower motifs, 8 rows of 10, so only 70 more to go plus the edging!
It's been SO cold here lately!
I never thought I'd hear myself say I'd be glad when it warmed up
to the 50's again. Those teens and 20's are just too cold for me.
You guys in the midwest and east must be tougher than I am!
Have a great weekend!
I'm going to just stay warm and crochet!
