This week’s art

I’ve made a lovely friend Silvara from Fantasy of the Dragon Silver and we found out we both crochet. I let her know that I’ve never actually completed a blanket because I get bored so easily with them (you know I need that instant gratification) and so she surprised me by sending me this Heirloom afghan pattern book made up of individually patterned crochet squares that you then sew together at the end. Hopefully this will give me instant gratification with each square I complete (there are 63 and I’ve done 4 so far). I’m thinking I’ll actually be able to finish one for once. What’s nice is that if you want to make a smaller blanket (like for a baby) this is perfect also – just don’t make as many squares. I’ll totally have to make a baby blanket. This one is going to be a gift for a friend and I’m giving myself a year to complete it lol. So maybe a s few squares whenever I feel the itch to crochet something other then a toy lol.

Random Doodles of the Week

The bottom doodle is one I did awhile ago and the one on top is  one I redrew onto some watercolor paper. I wanted to try actually giving the girl eyes other then the simple circles I normally do and I was surprisingly happy with the result. I don’t know if I’ll do them very often but I thought she turned out pretty cute. Which one do you prefer?

This Week’s Crafty AGGRAVATION!

My big pregnant belly! It sooo gets in the way of sitting at the craft desk for long. Luckily I can still crochet I just have to get into a really comfy position on the couch and hey my big belly acts as a convenient prop up place for my yarn and hand. muuuwhahah

So link up folks we want to see your art!

Stalk me!

When I'm in the zone I can flip book pages faster than the eye can see - screaming "More Input!" I'm a book, yarn, & art supply hoarding goblin who loves to draw, make toys and craft all sorts of creepy cute things. My current habit is to listen to audio books while I'm arting it up!
Stalk me!

    Hi! I’m sorry I haven’t been back in a while. I was just on Silvara’s blog looking at the post about how many blogs each of us follow… I follow something like 50 =/ So I forget my favourites every now and then. Apologies.

    I wanted to take up crocheting or sewing or something, but then I got back into illustration and that never happened. (Aw, pregnant belly. I can’t imagine what that must feel like. o_O) I quite liked the second image, the girl without the eyes/pupils. Dunno why! I guess that one is just cuter to me. Thanks for sharing. c:
