Sometimes I feel like a mad scientist with all the various creative things I have going on. But perhaps it’s a bit more like being a chef…lots of pots simmering on top of the stove, with one or two things baking in the oven.
Lest you think I’ve abandoned my beloved yarn, I am always working on something either knitted or crocheted, or as I am now, BOTH! Mwahaha!!! (Mad scientist laugh!) I have been knitting a few rows here, a few there, on my sock when I go to doctor or dentist appointments with the kids. It’s my “to-go” project!
And recently I decided I needed some Christmas bunting…so I’m working on these happy crocheted stars in various yummy colors! I’m using THIS free pattern. I’ll show you when it’s done … hopefully by Christmas!! If not, then it will be a New Year bunting! That’ll work too!
I have also begun to knit a snowflake sweater for myself. This may or may not be finished by Christmas, which will be ok since it is in colors that will work for anytime in winter. 🙂
And there’s drawing at Eclection which is always fun on Fridays! My fellow artist and friend, Debbie, and I drew this Friday there. It will probably be our last time until the New Year.
And various drawings in my sketchbook… Macy the Mouse, and everyday things around the house. (oh, that rhymes!)
Hoping you’re able to squeeze in a few minutes of making during this last week before Christmas!
*****The quote you see in the sketch above, is from a wonderful Advent book by various authors. This particular quote is by Henri Nouwen, a favorite author of mine. The book is titled Watch for the Light: Readings for Advent and Christmas. I’ve been trying to find my copy to re-read it this year, and I can’t seem to locate it! Grrrr…. ;/
