I have become a part of several different artist groups over the past few months. This group is by
far the most fun ;) I have been asked to participate in a Yarn Bombing in an adjacent town. Since I am just learning crochet I thought this would be a great way to practice stitches. I am having lots of fun working with strange combinations I would not usually put together. It has helped me get out of my safety zone. This piece when finished will be 15 x 41 inches! If you are not familiar with what this is I am adding a link to some examples. http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/yarn%20bombing
While working on my piece today I sat on my front porch and listened to Major Pettigrews Last Stand. Since I am doing so much sewing and it doesn't leave me much time to read I have decide to listen to some of the books on my Goodreads list of books to read. This list is growing ever longer since I keep looking at their suggestions!
I have been very neglectful of my blog of late because of all the sewing and reading and other art pursuits. Who knew you could be so busy when unemployed! I have also negelected my Etsy store so I am making a committment here that I will fill it up by the middle of July. I have items I just need to photograph so I am going to do this this weekend. Here are some things I have been busy with.
These are the pillows made from vintage tablecloths that I have not put in local shops. These will be in my Etsy store soon.
I also joined an ATC (artist trading card) group and these are some I have made but may not trade but put in my shop as Aceo's I am having a lot of fun making these small pieces of art.
This is a digital ATC I made to trade. The theme was sun, moon, stars
This one everyone had to use the little girl's image they provided. I did this one digital and printed it on fabric.
These are the cards I received in the swap with the little girls image.
This is another version I did for the sun, moon, stars.
