An ever so brief introduction to the blog. This personal blog space has been around in one form or another since 2010. It focuses on making, creativity, and clothing. Thank you for being here with me. - xo, Holly

Days Three and Four

Yesterday’s hour of paperwork was spent charting the pattern for the “Orange Spicy Scarf,” and “J’s Christmas Scarf ’09” (a better name to come), and starting writing the pattern for “J’s Christmas Scarf ’09.” Then today was spent finishing the write up and charting, then swatching, then ripping out the swatch for a triangular birdy shawl/scarf. No pictures of the swatch, silly me. Hopefully I’ll finish the chart and swatch either tomorrow or the next day, and then there will be pictures.

Day Three ATCs

The art/craft from yesterday is a pair of ATCs. They were quick and fun, and I like them.

Day Four Doodle

Today was just a doodle of an eye with swirls. I feel kind of meh about it, though it might make a cool stencil or notebook cover.

I’m toying with the idea of taking Mondays off for the rest of the semester, just because of my classes, and how my homework schedule ends up working out. For the moment I’m undecided, I think I’ll play tomorrow by ear and then decide about the next few weeks. Either way, this would only be till the end of the semester which is a few weeks away (a rather terrifying thought).

Day Two

Hopefully in a few days I’ll start coming up with more interesting blog titles than “day one,” “day two,” “day three,” etc.

Climbing Trellis

Today’s paperwork hour was spent fixing little things in the pattern for “Climbing Trellis,” a small, simple, zig zag scarf, great for using small amounts of hand spun yarn. As well as writing a description for “The Arrowhead Stole.”

Inside Front Cover Back Inside Cover

Decorated front and back inside covers of my small sketch book. The front (the brown and green) was done yesterday, and the back (red and orange) today. The colors are slightly more vibrant in real life, but over all these are pictures are fairly good representations.

Day One

So far so good. I spent today’s designing hour organizing and sending out emails.
While that wasn’t the plan, but I’m letting it go. The plan was to spend around 20 minutes organizing and making to do lists, and then start crossing things off the to do list. In reality the making of to do lists took between 45 and 50 minutes, and so I just spend the last 10 or 15 minutes sending emails.
I didn’t realize just how many projects I have in the works, but it’s a whole hell of a lot. Maybe around 20 or so in varying states of completion. I mean I knew there were a lot, just not that many. Looking on the bright side that means I won’t run out of things to do.

As today’s piece of art I decorated the front inside cover of my small sketch book, however it’s too dark to take pictures, so I’ll post those in tomorrow’s post. I also started decorating the back cover, but that’s still a work in progress.
