I’ve spent a lot of time at my computer recently, and I feel like I need to put it away for a while and do something with my hands (other than type). I’m going to let the pictures do the talking today 🙂
So, what is This Week in Pictures?
Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…
Instagram: Good afternoon! Progress continues on my #starrystarrynightmandala. This may be the final round. Unless it’s too small for the table after blocking. Then there will be 3 more 😊
365: 2016 93/366 – Why yes, that *is* a damp crochet mandala draped over a golf club in my favorite living room chair. (Seems perfectly normal to me…)
Instagram: Good Morning! The wind whipping around my corner of New Jersey is making me antsy. After being awake for two hours, I finally gave in and got out of bed. There’s just no sleeping through it for me. My #starrystarrynightmandala is finished and has taken its place on the coffee table along with a couple of #vintagecoasters I made last night. I wasn’t sure about it at first, but I think it’s growing on me, especially with the smaller accent pieces nearby.
365: 2016 94/366 – As I was making my new table mat, I kept thinking the colors might be too light for the room, but it turns out I like it, especially with my usual table stuff arranged on top of it. Strangely, though, I keep expecting it to say POW! or BAM! in the center 😀
Instagram: Good Morning, Instagram! It seems I’ve started another #crochetmandala and it’s lacy enough that progress has been super fast. This is the #marvelousmyriadmandala from #mandalastocrochet ☺
365: 2016 95/366 – My little one is 13 now. That makes two teenagers in this house. I’m not sure I’m ready for this 😉
Instagram: My #marvelousmyriadmandala is complete 😊. I want to make more, but I don’t think I have any place to put another one!
Instagram: This room. Sometimes a dining room, sometimes an art studio… It’s time to put away the #polymerclay and assorted other supplies that have collected in there for the last 5 months and get my nice company-friendly room back.
365: 2016 96/366 – Aidan’s Confirmation. Here he is with his sponsor (my Dad) and Bishop Serratelli. [Taken at our church.]
Instagram: We’ve had several family celebrations in the past week, and now that the hubub has died down, I’m free to get started on the taxes. Though what I really want to do is get started on my next #crochetmandala. I’m making another #marvelousmyriadmandala for my mom in these colors she picked out last night. I will start the taxes today, but maybe just a few rounds of #crochet before I do… 😉
Instagram: I look suspiciously like someone who is sipping a @frappuccino and crocheting instead of someone who is dutifully doing her taxes… [Taken at Starbucks.]
365: 2016 97/366 – My son is taking a photography class in school as an elective. He really does not like it at all, and last night he was grumbling about an assignment to photograph a flower, and I was trying to give him some ideas. In the end, he didn’t take any of my suggestions, but *I* took one of them. It’s the classic “hands with chipped nail polish holding a dandelion” pose 😀
Instagram: It would seem that Mom’s mandala and I are at an impasse. #needmoreyarn
365: 2016 98/366 – I’m having a little prioritization with my breakfast this morning. Guess which task I would most like to be doing, and which task I most HAVE to be doing…
Instagram: I only need one ball. I only need one ball. I only need one ball… #thingsitellmyself #yarnshopping [Taken at A.C. Moore.]
Instagram: And suddenly the weather is insane. Not sure where all of this wind and rain came from… #njwx [Taken at A.C. Moore.]
365: 2016 99/366 – Don’t let these pretty little flowers fool you into thinking it’s actually spring. There’s snow in the forecast for tomorrow. What a weird season we’ve been having.
I may already have plans to blog about some of these things in greater detail over the coming week, but be sure to leave a comment if there’s something in particular you want to know about!
