The beginning of 2011 has seen me make a lot of changes in my life and I thought I'd record it in a blog, in cyberspace, where everybody can see it! (not that anyone would particularly want to see it) but what the hey. For me I beleive this will become abit like a diary for all my cyber bits and bobs. Everything and anything that relates to my interests, and a few that I hope you will enjoy too. Anyway, back to these changes:
Late last year I made some realisations about the direction I was heading with art and such, so decided that upon my final year in my degree I would learn the art of fine jewellery making. Though I am yet to organise this, I plan to participate in the courses at Workshop 6 (http://workshop6.co.nz/). However a little research into all things jewellery-esque introduced me to crochet. Specifically lace crochet. Since, I have been creating bags, little lace flowers and soon to be making jumpers! (if all goes to plan). Hopefully to start selling, like one of my idols http://muntedkowhai.blogspot.com/.
So here's the fruits of my labour:
|First double stitch Motif|
|First attempt at double stitch|
|First attempt at shell fringing|
