Quick update on what I’m doing

I know I haven’t uploaded anything for a while. But I haven’t finished anything…

Last week was the last beading class. I just practiced a new technique, but since I know I don’t have enough beads (I counted them) I am not going to finish it. I will “destroy” it and put the beads back in the little plastic bag. May be I will work on it again if I found other beads that I can use.

I could not go to the knit and crochet cafĂ© yesterday, because I had to go to work in the afternoon. So there was no time. I think there is still one of the k&cc next week, so I’ll go to that one.

What am I doing? Well, I made a few asymmetric granny squares… But when I put them together (I didn’t stitch them together, just placed them next to each other on the bed), I decided that I didn’t like the color combo. I will try to come up with a new color combo. My wish was to crochet a pillow case. I’ll show you when half of it is done (one side of the pillow). But that might take some time.

I also do something called zenbroidery. It’s like coloring a mandala with threads… The mandala motif is printed in black on the fabric and you can use whatever threads you want to color it with different stitches.

I am only used to cross stitches, back stitches and French knots, so it’s quite difficult. But I like making it. Whenever it’s done I’ll show you.

I have a pretty bad cold, so I haven’t had much energy to do anything creative. I borrowed my niece’s jigsaw puzzle (1000 pieces) and put all the pieces together. So that has taken quite a lot of my time. But It’s done now and tonight I will embroider a little on the mandala and may be go through the yarns to see if I can find a color combo that I like.
