Trendy Wednesday

I was busy shopping , making knit & crochet bracelet cuffs! Crochet & Knit back in fashion! Who would have thunk it? It makes me happy. I know when the 60's & 70's craze is over it may fade again. I'll enjoy it now while I can. The day flew by. The weeks are actually flying by! This year has flown by! I am finishing up some more knitting & crochet that I have started. The kids love the cuffs. The first thing Athina said was "I WANT THAT!" They think they are Emo/punk/rocker cool. So I listed a few on Etsy. They are getting some for gifts but don't know it yet. I may do some scarves with lots of metal plates on the bottom saying lots of different things to match.


I received a big commission for 6 Aura Angels and will be working on those for a few days. The person is giving some as gifts. I'm jealous that she's started on Christmas! Christmas will be here before we know it. I usually procrastinate and make myself utterly miserable. I don't like shopping much so that makes it worse. I think I will be making a lot of gifts or buying online this year.

I am in explore create mode more than a painting mode lately. I have been making card zines and have my head totally buried in the 3 large plastic bins I have full of yarn. I saw Vicky Howell (http://vickiehowell.com/2006/05/brimster-free-pattern-of-month_01.html )of the Knitty Gritty Show saying to donate your scrap yarn instead of saving it. Are you kidding me? No way could I do that! If you are feeling the need to clean out your yarn, you can donate it to me! Not that I'm against donating, I have donated several paintings for different causes, but yarn..... I don't think so! It seems like I always get in the knit/crochet mode this time of year for some reason. Maybe it's a good excuse to stay inside with the AC on!

Tonight is the Swell Sister meeting. I always look forward to that! Can't wait to find out what we are creating, seeing everyone, and hearing about the new changes to the Swell Sister Society!
