I haven’t done much art lately. I’ve done a few things which I will post soon but I’ve kinda been in that whole cold weather blah thing. Happens every year, and I get this curl up on couch and knit syndrome. As a rule I work on one thing nothing big but it keeps my hands busy.
Except this year.…
I went on this yarn frenzy I have piles of the stuff. I could start my own store. So I came up with a small goal. Do more than one project and actually finish them! I thought I’d get one or three? things done especially if I do toddler items (small and quick) but no….I couldn’t stop. Which is why my house is messy, art isn’t done and the animals are giving me that look 😉
So here’s my list and I still can’t believe I actually have done all of this.
1 toddler dress. 6 toddler pullovers. 1 girls tank. 1 afghan and one in progress. 4 hats. 1 lacy pullover for me. 3 cat toys & 1 in works. 1 Baby blanket. 2 pullovers missing a sleeve I ran out of that colour yarn eek!
Still have a few projects left to complete. I may not have been painting but the ideas that this goal sparked were great. I even came up with an idea that I’ll keep in my notebook for now. I have to create one first to see if I like it or can even do it.
Did you have any winter goals or frenzies?
it was a very long winter this year. The kind that never ends, the kind where you close down and shut yourself in doors waiting for it all to end, I didn’t get much done including writing.
Spring hit and everyone started buzzing around then all of a sudden I looked at a calendar and it’s almost July oops nothing written still. Where did my time go.
It has been spent outside as much as possible to make up for lost time with that winter. We started a ‘urban’ veggie garden this year. My daughter and I built beds. Cabbage, toms, tatties, peas not to mention the watermelon, blackberries, strawberries and the orange tree and kiwi. Poor kiwi though, it’s a girl and apparently they need a boy for fruit.
I’ve done a lot of crochet too, have a baby blanket started as well as a cardigan, large blanket, summer top and baby booties. As I said long winter and there are a lot of babies coming lol! I tried to get some sketching in mostly at work on stickies. Did start a rough sketch of oldest.
I also joined the Oatley Academy #OALive. Looking forward to working on a real project and moving my dream forward. The older I get the less patience I have in slowly moving toward my dream of freelance, you would think we would have more patience as we age.
Well that’s the quick review of my time after winter. Lots of stuff going so lots of things I can write about. Updates on the fruits and veggies, and I’ll tell you about my personal project soon.
