I just spent the better part of this morning processing some languishing photos from the last two weeks. I dropped the ball a bit on my Project 365 this week, but I’ve made up for it in photos of my various projects. If I ever find the time to properly tell you about the boot cuffs and sweater I recently knit, the shawl I crocheted for my brother’s wedding, or the big pile of polymer goodies I cooked up at the Clayathon, those posts will be well-illustrated 😉
For now, let me just show you the ones I shared publicly this past week…
So, what is This Week in Pictures?
It’s a roundup of the photos I shot for Project 365 (the theme for 2017 is “words”), plus some snapshots I posted on Instagram during the previous week.
Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…
Instagram 📱: A new Calico cane in a Spring color scheme. In progress. When it’s done there will be 144 flowers across the face of it. #pdc [Taken at the clayathon.]
Instagram 📱: First batch of stuff headed for the oven! #pdc [Taken at the clayathon.]
365 📱: 2017 49/365 – Clayathon – My work table, and my goodie bag. Having a great time! [Taken at the clayathon.]
Instagram 📱: A second batch of stuff for the oven 😊 #pdc #clayathon2017 [Taken at the clayathon.]
Instagram 📱: Getting a later start this morning, enjoying breakfast in bed, looking at what I’ve made over the last two days, and figuring out what I want to do with my clay time today ☕💟 #clayathon2017 #pdc [Taken at the clayathon.]
Instagram 📱: When it’s 67 degrees in February, and you happen to be 30 minutes from your favorite shore spot, so you take a quick trip to the boardwalk for lunch 😊 [Taken from the Ocean City, NJ boardwalk.]
365 📱: 2017 50/365 – Coastal Grille – It turns out room service is only $3 more than dragging our tired butts to the dining room tonight. Totally worth it. DId I mention Eamonn is at the Clayathon with me again this year? We took a quick side trip to Ocean City this afternoon. It was only 30 minutes from our hotel, so why not? The weather was beautiful (nearly 70!) and the boardwalk was crowded, although nothing was open, since it is, in fact, February. [Taken at the clayathon.]
365 📱: 2017 51/365 – Welcome home! – Is it a cop-out to use a screen shot as my photo of the day? This doesn’t even include our full trip home. This is how long it took us from our rest stop break. We had Auntie Anne’s pretzels and Starbucks Frappuccinos for lunch. Tomorrow it’s back to eating Real Food.
Instagram 📱: I’m home from another #clayathon 💟 Here is everything I made, minus three chips I used for LRC, and 4 raw canes. These all still need to be buffed, and several things (badge reels, key rings, and a crochet hook) still require assembly. Fun time, good conversation, over too soon! #pdc
365 📱: 2017 52/365 – Crochet Therapy – There’s a ripple blanket in this book that has been calling my name. I’ve always wanted to crochet a ripple. They remind me of an afghan my grandmother used to have. I think. My memory is fuzzy. But I feel like there was a blue ripple blanket in her house.
365 📷: 2017 53/365 – I don’t know what to photograph today – Less than two months into my "words" theme for Project 365 and I’m already losing steam. Keeping this up while working full time is not easy. Maybe it will get better when there is some daylight in the evenings. I’m not very inspired once the natural light is gone.
Instagram 📱: Check out this nifty #crochethook set my friend @phillysherm gave me to work on at #clayathon2017 – one handle (which I covered in my new Seaside Calico #millefiori pattern) and 6 interchangeable hook heads ranging in size from C to H. I could be persuaded to make a few more of these with custom handles, if there’s interest..
365 📷: 2017 55/354 – LiteSpeed – Two days ago, I couldn’t think of anything to photograph, and yesterday I dropped the ball completely and forgot to take any picture at all. I was going to fudge it and just take two images today (I’ve done that before…) but I’ve decided to just own my failure on this 😉 BTW, this is a badge reel I made at the Clayathon, and the key card to get into my office. I have a little sticky pocket on the front of the key, and I’ve put my business cards in it. I don’t have any cards for my Real Job, so I’m using my Polka Dot Cottage cards.
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!
