Carved fan Day 14

A Japanese fan design. This is different Lino than I have previously used. It’s really slippy to carve. It’s called softcut but I found the good old grey stuff better. The edges of the leaf overlay need tidying but that’ll

Thing-a-Day 14: Finished Animated gif

I resisted the urge to make something heart-shaped for Valentine’s day and completed my gif project instead. It’s not perfect but it’s a definite achievement. My next challenge is to put some music behind the animation.

Thing-a-Day 13: Origami ‘Shining Alice’

Thing a Day 14

Westley awakens in the Pit of Despair. An albino is tending to the wound on his wing. Westley: Where am I? Albino: The Pit of Despair. Don’t even think about trying to escape. The chains are far too thick. And

Day 13: Does making a trip count?

Successfully made the ten hour drive home today, and found just a bit of time to putter with the newest batch of yarn. Here: is what I got. Though I am thinking that I will unravel this and rework it,

Day 13: Feral Child Doodle

I don’t really like doing doodles for Thing-A-Day, because I already do a doodle every day elsewhere, but I couldn’t think of anything else to do for today’s things, so here we go with a doodle.

Day Thirteen: “Valentine’s Surprise”

Confession: I did not make anything “new” today. Consolation:  The Three Offspring have a surprise waiting in the dining room when they awake in the morning. And it is sort of a walk down the Valentine Memory Lane…   Valentine’s

Day 12 & 13: Dick & Jane Quilt

Over 8 years ago I started this quilt… and then panicked and stopped. Inspired by the snow/ice dump (and inability to go anywhere!) I FINALLY buckled down and finished it. Spent a ridiculous number of hours sewing the blue border,

Day 13: Pop Up Valentine

So I got busy getting ready for Valentine’s day and decided to use this for my “thing”. It was fun learning how to make a pop up. Made some for the kids and made heart shaped pancakes as well. Fun

TAD 2014 – Day 13

It isn’t that I didn’t do anything creative… I actually worked on a couple of things…. The edges of the circle painting are now painted black so my husband can frame it. Didn’t figure that would make for an exciting
