WIP – Mixed Medium Project

I’m finally working on my mixed medium project.

I’ve figured out something about my creative process, I like to get the supplies for projects together and then let them set a while before I make them. I have to imagine the project in my mind and the steps I’ll take to create it. Only then am I ready to start the project. This is the part of my creative process that slows me down.
However,
Some projects I start/finish right away. I just rarely know which ones that will be.
Anyway, I hope to have this mixed medium finished soon. I’m on a role with it right now.

Wishing you all a successful Wednesday!

WIP Wednesday – Joy In The Journey Cross Stitch

wip-1-24-2017-aI’m starting this lovely cross stitch titled ‘Joy In The Journey’.  I bought it a year or so ago. Since I enjoyed doing the ‘Cardinal Cross Stitch Hanger’ cross stitch I thought I’d give this a try.

I plan to post my updates of any noticeable progress I make on it.
Here’s what I’ve done so far:
Using my sewing machine, I zig zagged around the edges of the cross stitch cloth so it wouldn’t ravel out.
The fabric had some major creases, so I soaked it in cold soapy water, rinsed it, rung it out rolled up in a towel and ironed it dry.
To find the center, I measured with 2 measuring sticks and made a tiny stitch in the middle mark.
I mounted the cross stitch cloth on a frame with legs that I made out of pvc pipe and pvc joints.
I cross stitched two middle rows of the pattern.
And now my project waits until I’m ready to work on it some more.wip-1-24-2017-b

I hope your week is going well.
Happy crafting!

WIP Wednesday – Crochet Flowers

IMG_8077Look at all these unfinished crochet flowers. I plan on making more. I don’t use a pattern, I crochet them freehand. Some are quite wonky. However, when I put them in a basket they don’t look half bad.
These are quite addictive little darlings to make. I’ll go through and pick out the better ones to use in crafts and You can almost bet that there’s another flower ball in Sheli’s future.  😉

IMG_8102One good thing about crocheting flowers is that they’re helping me to use up my odds and ends of yarn that I’ve acquired over the years. I like that. Oh and they’re fun too.

This is all for me at the moment. I just wanted to post a WIP for Wednesday.

I hope all your projects are a success.
Have a great rest of the week.
🙂
