TWiP: polymer clay by day, knitting by night

This Week in Pictures (TWiP) at Polka Dot Cottage

I found out this week that my Bloglovin feed was broken. If you follow Polka Dot Cottage there, you haven’t seen a new post from me since May! That’s a lot of stuff you’ve missed. I hope if you’re a Bloglovin follower, you’ll come directly over to the blog and poke around for a while to see what has been happening for the last 7 months ☺

I’ve done a lot of making this week: polymer clay by day, knitting by night.

I’ve also spent most of this week in red nail polish, which is one of those silly things that always makes me happy 💅🏻

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for Project 365 (one image each day for all of 2016), plus some snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.

Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…



365 📷: 2016 331/366 – What is it about a Saturday afternoon that makes it virtually impossible for me to resist the lure of sneaking out for a peppermint mocha Frappuccino?



365 📷: 2016 332/366 – The yarn came in this box, and now I’m just using it to store my sweater-in-progress. That’s what happens when you dive into a project so quickly that you don’t make time to look around the house for an empty project bag…



365 📷: 2016 333/366 – This may be the last production run I have in me before I put away the clay table for a few months. All of this stuff is baked, but it still needs sanding: not exactly my favorite part of the job, but it has to be done!



365 📷: 2016 334/366 – I finished all of pieces from yesterday. Now I need to photograph them and list them.



365 📷: 2016 335/366 – It’s been raining for a couple of days now. For some reason it feels like it’s been raining all week.



365 📱: 2016 336/366 – I’m at TMC’s Boutique today for their Meet the Artists day. It’s pretty quiet here, but it’s giving me an opportunity to survey my display and figure out what items should be swapped out for something new. [Taken at TMC’s Boutique in New Providence, NJ.]



365 📱: 2016 337/366 – I love having a big bucket of clay-covered pens. I sold a handful to a friend this morning, and I think maybe I’ll make some replacements this weekend, since I never did put away the clay table. I’ll clean it up next week 😉 [Taken at Biagio’s in Stirling, NJ.]

Thanks for taking a peek at this week’s photos! If you want to see this stuff as it happens, please feel free to follow me on Flickr and/or Instagram.

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!

  1. Love the pjs. Did they fit true to size? Great post.

    1. Aren’t they cute? I *think* they fit true to size. It’s hard to say. The bottoms fit me, but the top is snug. Tops are often snug on me, though, and I usually just wear a roomy t-shirt instead 🙂

  2. The boutique looks like fun!
    You are doing a great job on your sweater… the colors make me think of lattes 😊☕️
