I’ve been working on some new stuff and I have some things I did a while ago that I kept forgetting to share with you. As some of you might know, I play on pool league once a week and it can be tough to tell your stick bag apart from everyone else’s when they are all basically the same. I made this little charm for my back to mark it as mine and I also made another one for my ukulele case while I was at it. They’re just simple clay shapes stamped with rubber stamps. The ladybug one I painted before baking using dust from colored chalk pastels, and the other I painted with acrylic paints after baking. They were both super easy to make and there’s so many different things you could do with this idea.
I finally finished my triangle scarf that I have been waiting over a week to get the yarn to finish it. It figures I’d pick the one stash yarn I can’t buy anywhere around here when I needed more to finish! But it finally arrived yesterday and I was able to finish it this morning. I went crazy on the fringe though, but I really wanted to use up all of the yarn in that second skein and I did.
I think it turned out really pretty and its very wearable. Now if it will just get chilly enough so I can wear it!
I started this two days ago and I expect it will be finished before the week is over. When its done, it will say EAT SLEEP BUILD REPEAT and of course there is the little Lego guy head in there. When it’s done I will frame it and put it up in Mattie’s Nerd Cave on the wall and then he can have some themed decorations.
I really wish I could decorate my craft room, but the main wall is cement, being part of the garage, and nothing will penetrate it so I can’t hang anything unless I use stickies.
