Making and Making More

I promised my two youngest nieces that I would make each of them a new sweater for Christmas. That, of course never happened. So, instead, They each got a hat and an IOU. Now I am frantically trying to get two sweaters done before the intended recipients outgrow them or summer arrives. The problem is, that I make everything without a pattern, so my ideas have a way of growing and growing to the point where I feel like I have bitten off more than I can chew, sometimes. Here is the youngest niece’s sweater….12654262_1118210181545667_6805026182586991575_n

The only problem is that it STILL isn’t finished. After this photo, I decided to add an under layer of yellow to the bottom hem and the when I had it all washed and pressed, I realized that I had moved the hem a full 2 inches off on one side. My husband said to send it any way but I can’t….so…….snip….snip…….sigh.


Drawings by Day

I joined one of those “100 drawings in 100 days” groups on Facebook. It was not until after I joined that I realized that most of the assignments were a bit juvenile and not something I would waste my time drawing. “Draw your favorite Pokemon” comes to mind…..I also was soon to discover that other than the moderator, I was the only other artist who took the bait. No thank you. I am, however, going ahead with the idea and using the list I was given as a template. So, drum foll please, the first assignment was to draw yourself….oh hell….no one like this one, but I guess it is best to get it over with. Here ya go.
