Finals Week

Okay, finals week is coming up.  I know I haven't blogged since August but my semester finished in two weeks and I will be free to post up here to my hearts content about all the crafty things I enjoy doing.

For this post I am going to share some photos of works in progress of the mosaic chess set I'm working on for my ceramics class.

The outside border.  It will be purple and blue.

Tiles, all 64 of them.  Half will be light blue and the other half will be light green.

And last but not least the playing pieces.  Their colors will match those of the tiles'.

Homework and Lots of It!

Okay, I know I've been a bad blogger and haven't posted anything exciting as of late. However, I recently started college and my professors have been more than happy to give me many pages of reading, papers to write and questions to answers.  On top of it all its only the first week still!

Anyways to update some of my previous posts:

My quiver received Grand Champion at out county fair and Special Merit at the State Fair! 

Also I decided not to continue the DAL due to lack of time.  But I have made many more things since I last posted.  And of course I have no pictures... Typical, I know.  But I plan to post those after I finish my paper.  It will my reward to myself :)

Also, great news.  Maggie McCloud has posted a poem of mine on her two blogs if you would like to check it out.

Well, have a good day everyone and I hope to post again soon!

Summer Fun :)

I am sorry that I haven't been posting for a while now, but I have been vacationing in San Diego.  It is wonderful having humid free weather for once compared to the Midwest which is always humid.

Anyways I have been quite busy swimming, shopping, and of course crafting.  At the local yarn shop here called The Needleworks I bought some beautiful Cascade Lana Bambu yarn.  I needed a simple project so I'm making my Simple Hipster Purse with it.  Though I plan on lining this one and adding a pocket to the front.  I'll post photos once it's finished.

Also, close by to where I'm staying is this bead warehouse called South Sun.  So being the crafty person I am, I had to visit.  Unable to resist I bought a variety of beads, wire, and clasps.  I've ended up making bracelets for my sister, a few other people, and myself.  Here are some photos of my creations.

 Sorry, that is quite a few photos.  Probably more than you wanted to see.  Oh well, hope you enjoyed!

Since I still have not gone out to find a new connector cord for my camera,  I decided to take some photos of my Simple Hipster Purse on my cell phone's camera.  So here they are....

^ this is my favorite photo of my purse

^ However, this one shows the entire purse, not just part of it.
