I challenged myself to make an entire mini piece today, the crochet and painting and stretching.
I actually almost did it.
During the babies' nap I made two small paintings and cut them like I wanted them. And I made one of the attachment crochet pieces. And found a suitable picture frame.
In the evening I finished all the attachment crochet pieces, so now it is ready to stretch. But I can't do the stretching in the apartment while the babies are sleeping (will need to hammer into the frame) so it's just not going to happen tonight.
I wanted to do a whole piece because I want to finish something. I want to go through the whole process. The last piece I finished, only the second one ever, I finished in November (?) 2011. Since then I have started a few but never finished.
Using a picture frame as a guide makes it easy to stay small and not get out of hand. I have a bunch of picture frames, I can make a few small works.
I'm going to finish this one tomorrow. Then I'll have SOMETHING.
