By this afternoon, I should be on my way to the 2013 Clayathon. Wheeeeee! Admittedly, I have put very little thought into what I want to accomplish this year. I’m just hoping something will come over me when I get there, and that I don’t have to run out and buy supplies to make it happen.
There will probably be some crochet hooks made, and I am really hoping to make some new millefiori canes. Perhaps I’ll take some process pictures, too, so I can share a little bit about how I do what I do with those of you who are not familiar with the polymer thing.
I’m getting back into the Flickr thing: posting my own images in a timely fashion, checking out what my contacts are posting, looking through some favorite groups for inspiration…
This week, you can see, was somewhat dominated by crocheted hexagons, and homey scenes. That sounds about right.
