I have had a productive week! Mainly because the weather has been terrible, we are definitely are now in the thick of winter so lots of sitting in front of the fire doing yarny stuff and painting.
AfghansI have decided to get stuck into my Around the Bases Afghan that I have not touched since October. To be fair to myself I was suffering terribly with Carpal Tunnel and eventually had to have operations on both wrists in December. (Anyone who is putting off the idea of an operation for it, don’t, they have changed my life.)
For the centre which you chose yourself I used Bursting with Pride by Amber Schaaf, up to round 11, then I adapted elements from Sophies Universe by Dedri Uys.
I had got up to Part 3 I had to stop. This week I have reached part 8. There are 8 more to go. I had hope to get a better picture of it this afternoon but the kitties decided it was lovely to nap on I being the softy I am I let them be. You can see the rounds I added in the bottom corner!
ShellsThe other thing that has been grabbing my attention is freeform = shells In the IFFF group on Ravelry there is a kcal Down by the Seashore
This week hosted by Nell, she designed a limpet and other goodies. These are my efforts.
Doing the shells awaken my desire to paint which has been dormant for a while, so I got the watercolours out and ended up with three pieces of art. Thanks Nell.
On this last one I am toying with the idea of using pastels to make shell like marks, but I will brew on it for a bit.
Well its Sunday night and so another week begins and I will leave you with this funny my sister emailed me this week.
