Every time I start a new blog I've gotten closer and closer to what I wanted to do. Probably because I'm learning more and more about myself as I go.
Pixels, Art, and Me was close, because it was eclectic.
And now I'm just going to claim my corner here, and show you all that I am doing. I do beadwork, cross stitching, and I'm trying to learn to knit. I make jewelry, decor, and failed attempts at stuff.
I've got a lot going on at the moment - I'm working with the Patchwork Gym (kinda the leader) to make a quilt that has all of the Generation I Pokemon (the original 151), plus all the gym leaders, elite four, and the Champion plus the Trainer that we played. Plus a logo patch. It was tricky to put all the Pokemon on the 81 patches. But I did it! ^_^
I did the Ditto patch.
Also I'm working on a gift to myself for my birthday (it was last Friday) as a kind of break. Sounds selfish I know, but I'm not just participating. I'm trying to do prizes for competitions, fix problems, work on publicity, and so on. There's a LOT I didn't realize I'd be doing that I'm trying to do.
But I am so grateful towards the international effort that is going in to this. America, Australia, Canada, Ireland, the Netherlands, England - and this is just the short list. I'm sure I'm missing a country somewhere. I can hardly wait to get the patches when they send them in. Wow.
People are already wanting to do a Second Gen quilt. Their enthusiasm is just amazing.
Oh yeah, I have just finished a Prom hair jewel clip and forgot to take pics. So I'm going to get my husband's cousin to bring it to the next family function so that I can.
I also finished the first in 19 beaded Christmas ornaments that I have to do this year. 3 for my nieces and nephew, and 16 for the family ornament exchange. I'm doing sets of 4 per box because the ornaments are extra tiny.
And I have my sister-in-law's b-day coming up too to do. She wants a beaded anklet. Thank goodness I found a clasp that was "Somewhere between silver and black". Thank goodness for metal patinas!
Anyway yeah, that's the short list of what I'm doing.
Next year I'm going to buy a TON of tiny ornaments (365 to be exact) and I'm going to try to do an ornament a day. But for now, I'm just contenting myself to my current crafts. ^_^
Craft now, go insane later!
