In my montage of intentions for TAD that I posted on Day 1, I included some lavender and white baby yarn that I had begun to crochet into a sweater. Alas, life intervened, and the baby somehow became two years old

Crumpled

Today I used crumpled cling film on my Gelli plate. It gives fantastic textural results. Below I’ve put 4 photos of different prints (out of many). I particularly like the 1st print as it reminds me of ice fractals. Again,

Day 20:Button bobby pins

Thing-a-Day 20: Sourdough Loaf (at last)

The process that started seven days ago has finally yielded some bread. The first loaf came out of the oven a couple of minutes ago and the second has just gone in. The early morning smell of freshly baked bread

I’m going to be running out of barnyard animals pretty soon; I’ll have to branch out to other habitats…any requests?

Thing 19

Day 19 was kind of lame. I got a cold yesterday and energy was low here today. I spent some time playing with rocks I picked up yesterday. I also almost made a lamp but it will be tomorrow’s thing
