What I'm working on

Remember this

it ended up looking like this
this is next as I only have one row done

What I'm working on

This month has been really rough between the depression and the pain but even so I have managed to work on a few things between days of reading and watching video's
from this
to this
Turban Headband - 2/3 done

Snowflake Quilt Dishcloth
- only one row in

I suppose that is not too bad given the amount of sleeping I have been doing. I have also done a little art which you can find here on Pinterest. I am way behind on the 30 day challenges but at least I have made a few things.

WIP or Completed as of Today

Once I returned home from the Professors I was able to get back to work on my creative projects.
Dec Crazy Quilt Square
To be fair this was begun in December as a practice square, I am new to patchwork and have been away from embroidery for 20 years or more. I still have several seams to do and a bit of threadwork in the centre. Well some threadwork and a couple of buttons to put the Holy family in the centre where they belong.

Colour Square- Knit Stitch
Sampler Square - Alternating Rows

January's Knitted Squares - Two for each month one representing the colours I associate with that month and one a sample stitch I wanted to practice. Next year when the squares are complete I will turn them into a quilt.

Crazy Quilt Square for January
This is January's CQ Square. Much simpler patch work than the December one but I will be adding beads as well as experimenting with making interesting seam decorations on this one. So far I have one seam in Cretan Stitch, one in Feather Stitch and am working on one in Herringbone Stitch. Of the other two seams I will be doing them in Buttonhole and Fly Stitch.

The plan is to then add a beaded snowflake and several snowflake buttons as well as the word January. If it still looks bare I will most likely add some smaller snowflakes made from seed beads or some stitched ones depending on which I think will look better.

On my to do list still is an altered fashion doll representing air, a dishcloth, four angels for my tree this December, a headband and a pair of art boxes representing winter all before the end of January.

Will I get them all done, stay tuned to this blog to find out.

Wow Time Flies

I can't believe it has been nearly two years since I wrote anything in here. Its not that I haven't been creative, I have been I have dozens of images here to prove it as well as photos and various bits of writing at Wildchild Chronicles. I just haven't been adding them here.

This year I have gone back to my needlecraft skills because I want to make a crazy quilt. I am also knittng squares to do a knitting sampler throw.  On the table as well are a couple of mutiple use DIY pieces so that if I end up moving from a one bedroom to a bachelor I will still have plenty of storage space.

So far this year I have completed only these two art pieces:

This one is the basic design for the Jan CQ square

This is my first Word of the Year page

This is all I have done other than some knitting but I have no picture of it yet.

Art Gallery

Just sharing some of the Digi-art I've done this year. I used several free scrapbook kits to create my art just cause they are easy to come by and there are some really interesting ones out there. Also because I don't do scrapbook pages any more but I didn't want to waste my collection.

2014 Day 1 Time to Get Creative Again

Happy New Years Day!

Now it's time for me to get serious! I have a map and a plan! 


I apologize for using this blog as a personal journal that is not what it was supposed to be. You will find my journal Wildchild Chronicles by following the link. From now on that is where all my whinging will be. This blog was supposed to be a showcase for my creative talent and that is what you will find here during the next year. Included but not limited to the following undertakings:

Project Life 365 -Photography

The Original Project Life - Back to basics Journalling

Poetry Zine - My own writng, first issue available here January 31

Monthly Calendar - A pictorial collage of my month

Pictures of my dolls & knitting projects

E-dream boards Dream boards that are computer generated

And some of my original artwork.

I have not decided yet if i will continue the NaBloPoMo here or in my Writing Journal though I suppose that actually makes the most sense.

Here's to a new, creative year!
