Not much going on today; got a few boxes packed for the upcoming move. Some of those boxes have some of the random plaques and frames and other stuff for finishing needlework pieces. But for actual crafting, I made headway on the fourth and final design in Carolyn Mitchell‘s “Have a Drink on Me”: I’ve… Continue reading On to design 4
So this morning I looked at the plain white sheets I had set aside for a yellow/orange tie-dye treatment that I didn’t get around to yet, and I decided to do a mottled lime green low-immersion dye job instead: After rinsing the sheets out and washing them, I felt they were too light so I… Continue reading Lime sheets and a yellow submarine
Damn, where did the week go… Oh yeah, road tripping around Vancouver Island with my brother. Anyway, I did get a new FlossTube video shot and posted last night: It’s a hot sticky morning in the kitchen eating nook, but I was up well before my brain wanted to be and decided to shoot the… Continue reading FlossTube #8
I shot this this morning for my guild and slapped it up on YouTube this evening: The Cowichan Valley Needlearts Guild‘s 20th Anniversary Exhibition runs from July 9th through 21st at the Portals Gallery in the lobby of the Island Savings Centre in Duncan, BC. The pieces in the exhibition show a range of different… Continue reading Video tour of the Cowichan Valley Needlearts Guild’s 20th Anniversary Exhibition
Let’s see here… I finished the second design of Carolyn Mitchell‘s “Have a Drink on Me”: Then I started on the third one: Also got a few stitches into Blackbird Designs’ “Yellow Submarine” (finally actual yellow submarine parts):
Didn’t have time to post yesterday as my crafting time was directed to building a blog for my guild: https://cowichanstitchers.wordpress.com Got it done just ahead of the exhibition opening, lol… Anyway, today I popped up to Nanaimo to grab a couple more needlepoint patterns and some threads and canvas at The Stitcher’s Muse. I may… Continue reading Frame, haul, canvas, etc.
So, I finished my first-ever canvaswork that I’ve been posting about the last couple days: As I mentioned before, this is the first design in Carolyn Mitchell‘s “Have a Drink on Me,” which is subtitled “Hot Cocoa.” The set was inspired by coffee, but I don’t drink coffee, and I know I’ll be doing tropical… Continue reading Finished canvaswork, etc.
Most of today was spent chasing bass tone issues in Pro Tools and finally coming to the conclusion that perhaps I need to break down and buy a better (or at least different and therefore better-for-me) bass. But, I did get some goofing off done whilst listening to Scott Adams videos on YouTube this evening,… Continue reading Canvasapalooza
So, last couple days have had me back to recording stuff and trying to get a decent bass tone, but that’s nothing to do with this blog. I’ve also been chugging along on Blackbird Designs’ “Yellow Submarine”: And this evening I got a start on my first-ever canvaswork project, one of the 4 pieces in… Continue reading First ever canvaswork, etc.
So I went down to Victoria today to hit the giant Value Village down there (also the needlework shop I should stay out of until I stitch through my current stash… lol…). At the Value Village I ended up picking up a bunch of random things for the house I’m going to buy just as… Continue reading Roots, vines, and baskets, oh my…
