WOYWW 202 and what's not!


Thankfully the Birthday cards are gone...for now.

I reclaimed this yarn- it was a faded blue (scroll down for photo at end of post)oversized pullover from the 70's(?) and with a little lot of help from Leslie at Nice Threads got this lovely lavender, that will become a cable cardigan.
Where is my project sheet? Not on my desk!

Spring is finally here, thank Goddess and I  got some new brushes( where are they?) and I'm painting a lot!
Flowers=still life!

Update on Distress paint- still working on it.
Black Soot made a perfect black  matte background out of white watercolor paper for the ATC on the easel . You can read about that here.
The tag to the left is messing about in the paint, none of which pleases me so far.

The white lidded jar on the right- it says---Used Clear---it's my tip of the week. I pour the clear embossing powder that i have used into that jar, so if it matters, I have a jar of clean clear powder, without any glitter or whatever in it( well, maybe just a little).
The reclaimed yarn before dyeing.

Thanks for visiting. Comments and Questions always welcomed.

  11. My mum taught me a little about knitting but I am a crochet girl, not that I do much of that these days. Love the colour of your yarn. You are heading into spring and we are into Autumn both beautiful seasons with natures changes.

  12. Well you weren't kidding--that IS lots! My daughter cuts up old Tshirts to knit with, not quite the same as reclaimed yarn, but she has fun with it!

    Happy WOYWW to you!
