I thought I would share a quick little update of what I am working on this week.
The computer has me busy retouching portrait orders including the lovely little newborn pictured above. Some of you may also read my other blog, www.debrahunter.wordpress.com and have already seen a post showing off this little one.
I also shared on that blog the story behind the painting “Orville’s Barn”. This is another of my quick paintings, this time on a very small scale with it being only 6 inches by 6 inches. Painting was a pleasant way to spend Saturday evening.
Crocheting has taken an amusing turn. First it was a miniature snowy owl, now it is a rather crazed looking beaver………with a hat and scarf ( of course!). The little guy is made out of locally milled yarn and naturally dyed in cutch and lac. The next crazy critter on the hook is a bear. One wonders when the crochet critter madness will end!
There are also three new items on the knitting needles, two for the home and one to wear, I will share the finished products soon. I love the patterns that can be created with stranded knitting. The possibilities are endless.
It is also time to start working on another fibre art piece……or finish a half started one.
There are a lot of creative things happening this week.
