Workin' on it

Morning ladies.  I don't have anything completed to show you, so today I've got some shots of what I'm working on.  I'm afraid I snapped some of them this morning before work in the poor light.  You'll have to live with it!

Yep, it's a new project, but it's also part of Wipocalypse, this one is WIP #27.  All the stones are glued in place, I just need to add the grout.  I spent a couple of hours laying out the number and getting it right, then adding a few of the white tiles around it.  The borders were done in short bursts as I alternated between that and the computer.  I found this better to do as if the glue was not dry, I'd risk nudging them out of place.  I finished it off after dinner on Sunday waiting for Junior CA to finish her dinner (I swear that girl is the slowest eater in the world) so I could sit at the table with everyone but still have something to do.  Oh, it was from a kit I got for Christmas.  More details when it's finished.

This is a secret project and it may be a few months before I post about it.  This is really a sneak-peak for Jillayne.

This one is completely off the list and took me by surprise!  I randomly decided to have a go at the Mini Mystery hosted by Laura of the Two-Handed Stitcher.  I wanted to try needlepoint again, as my first attempt was quite paltry, containing only tent stitch.  Wow, this is really hard!  I think most of what you see there has be unpicked and restitched at least once!

And last, but not least, the giant granny is still being worked on.  I'm getting very close to the end on this!
I also have my stained glass window, but I'm going to class tonight so I'll post about that later, I have some pictures from this morning and I'll take some tonight so you can see the lack of progress.  I've got two beading classes tomorrow (day off work, yay!!) and will try to write another post tomorrow, depends how things go.  Bet you can barely contain your excitement.

I love the house number. I have one that I made when I did ceramics. I was so proud of it, and my Mum liked it so much she asked for one too. Here is a dreadful photo of it, from before I knew how to take craft photos! I really should take a better photo of it for my "portfolio" LOL

I need to get into my craft room today. The past few days have been filled w/ so much crushing stress that I'm in a bad way.

Samantha said...

I can't, I really can't contain my excitement :)

Seriously, you get so much done, how do you do it?!

The number is fab. Yo have reminded me that I have 3 ungrouted mosaics in a drawer waiting to be finished and blogged about!

Enjoy your day off!

I love doing tile mosaics - I did some tiled clay pots a few years ago - the grouting part is lots of fun - you get to play with mud, LOL.

You're just like me in that you like to work on different things at the same time - I have a short attention span so I'm happy to go from project to project ... although most of my projects are in the same medium (fabric/sewing), where you like to play with all different kinds of products and techniques!

Guess which 2 of your maple syrup friends are going shopping together tomorrow to hit some 50% off sales? Wish you could come with us!!
