This is a sneak peak of the work I'm doing for the show with the November 1 deadline. I set out to do a mixed media piece using materials/techniques including crochet, shrinky dink, water colors, and maybe embroidery. I've been working on the crochet elements for the last two weeks because it just takes forever when you use the thin thread instead of yarn. The picture shows how I incorporated shrinky dink into the chrochet.
So far my unemployment has been peppered with holidays so I haven't really had much time to fill. This is my first full week without a holiday coming up, and it's pretty busy. Tomorrow I start back up at the pottery studio finally, and I am working on these shows as well as revamping my portfolio and website. Those projects combined with general erranding and the inexplicable time warping that happens when you're home all day makes for a full-feeling day. Why is it that time goes by faster when you're at home all day?
