From my studio this week...

Sorry about missing my usual Monday post about the weekend crafting. This weekend was very unusual where we were fighting bugs and recuperating as a family while still doing the required activities like piano recitals and attending birthday parties.
Needless to say, there was very little time to be spent in the studio but I do have some creative projects to share.

We made a tie blanket for a little girl who love Pooh bears and it's process was low key enough that my girls could help while we all told silly jokes and giggled.

Earlier in the week, I finished making my crocheted waves blanket. It was the same pattern as the doll's pink and white blanket that I had made but bigger and made with blue ombre colors- started with navy blue and graduated to light blue, sky blue and then white. Just used 1 pound of each… I like the final effect.

Besides making things, I am thoroughly enjoying deconstructing as well. Ever since I discovered the joys of up cycling, I am collecting buttons and zips and frills and flat quarters wondering how to put them to effective use.
