Show Entries

Our annual Crab Festival Art Show is happening this weekend.
The reason I haven't been blogging much lately can be seen below:


This actually started out as a yarn project I envisioned and grew into something bigger. I still made the yarn, though- 2 different skeins based on the initial concept. I've got one skein nearly finished which is part of a seasonal yarn swap I'm participating in. The other skein is still in the works. I'll post pictures of both yarns when they are completed.

Ok, this one was not so spur of the moment-inspirational where it all comes together nice as pie like the peice above. This was one of those projects that I started almost a year ago and finally got around to actually doing something with it. The background was made ages ago. The crab was a recent decision- hard to start, difficult to stay focused on and major burnout trying to complete. My head hit the pillow at 3:00 am on a school night trying to finish in time. Alarm clock went off at 7:00 and I pounded the snooze button for 40 minutes. Just glad I got it done, as I was sorely tempted to leave it till the show in November at The Fly-By. Title: Dungeness
