Today I've bought a lovely hard-backed A4 sketchbook, which is going to hopefully be a place I can put sketches and snippets of designs for fabrics, crochet, jewellery, painting and so on. I must also dig out my small sketch book to attempt to carry around with me (yeah...along with the sling, nappies, drink, snacks, entertainment etc for K, brolly, purse, phone...it's a good job I carry K a lot cos she balances out the weight of the bag! Maybe I need to make a bigger bag).
As for the rest, I think I need a checklist of projects otherwise I'm going to forget something.
Things to be finished soon/quick wins:
Drawstring bag for A's didgeridoo (it's getting awfully scratched in the cupboard)
- Xmas Westie (still not finished, argh!)
- Xmas Stockings (six left then make up)
Crochet Scarf for K (halfway through, hope new wool is not a bad colour match) Monster feet and paws for K (got some fab green fur today!)
- >del>Papier mache bowls etc (made, some painted)
- Geisha Girl
- Baby Afghan
- Bunnies' Bathtime
- Blessed Samhain
- Chinese Dragon
- Weather Station (had actually finished this for xmas but K promptly pulled the velcro off)
Crochet hat for K (got wool, pattern, hook) Crochet bag
- Silk painting
Felted mittens Crochet and knitted flowers
Aaaanyway...in terms of Art, have you seen the stuff coming off the catwalk from Gaultier's latest show? Annoyingly I can't find the pic now but it was in The Guardian last week (and frustratingly not on Gaultier's own website). I am totally not into fashion (as anyone who's met me in my mummy uniform of jeans and top will attest), but the fabrics are absolutely amazing, all graduated florals, like wearing a painting. That's the kind of thing I want to do with my silk-painting.
