Multicolored Knitted Vest

A few days ago I started a new crocheted vest using four strands held together on size 15 circular needles. My local store didn't carry needles that big so I got them on Ebay.

A Slew of Paintings

I'm out of time for the painting a day project. It was fulfilling but too big of a time suck. But here are a bunch of paintings that I need to finish or I've finished and will put into my Etsy shop.

Bunny Painting

Today's painting was a girl with two bunnies. I think I'm going to call it 'Her Best Friends were Bunnies."  I'm not quite done. She still needs a nose.

Knitted Long Tailed Hat

I started this hat on the train on the way to San Luis Obispo last week.

Daily Paintings

I just realized I haven't been adding my daily paintings to this blog. Ack.  I've been adding them to the Hypno Kitty Art blog.  I'm reaching the point where there just aren't enough hours in the day to document everything. I need an assistant. Here are three of them for now.

Peasant Shirt and Fabric Journal

Men's peasant shirt number one: Sewed sleeves to front and back of shirt. Gathered the shoulder line for the yoke. Ironed on interfacing to cuffs, neck facing, and the collar.

Fabric Wedding Journal needs to be finished today. I worked on it about an hour last night and added a row of fringe.

Knitted Ruffle Scarf

Purple Knitted Ruffle Scarf
I started this one at the Amtrak 100. It's stuck in a bag somewhere. That's why I put things in this blog. So I don't forget all about them.

Beaded Brick Stitch Feather Earrings

Feather Shaped Earrings:
I've finished the first earring prototype. I've redrawn the pattern and I've ordered Delica beads for the improved version. But I still want to duplicate the first earrings so that I have a pair. I'm happy that the way I thought those earrings were made might actually be correct. I took an educated guess and I think it's right.

Men's Peasant Shirt
I just cut out the first shirt out of natural colored linen.

Diane's Wedding Journal

Making a fabric wedding journal for Diane and Gary.
Update: They loved it.

Fabric Banners

I'm developing an idea for fabric banners.  The first one will say Welcome. Each letter will cost $22. It will be of a fabric pillow design with tassels and bells.

Snood & cartoon blog.

Mouse juggling hedgehogs.
Pigglewiggins Cartoon Blog 
I will have too many cartoons to list here, so it's going to be hard to document each and every one. I'll try to put them on my cartoon blog as often as time allows.  If that's what you are interested in, you can follow that specific blog.

New Batch Of Art Cards

I just finished a big batch of ACEO's. I can't decide if I want to list them on Zibbet or Etsy.  I've already given away two of them in a trade with my daughter. I gave her the blond lady and one of the deer girls.

I've been working on a looping project on a gourd.  It's slow going. But it's right by my computer so I can do it during breaks.
