Stormy Sunday

About the 300th storm of this no-winter winter is raging outside. This weekend the weather seems determined to keep me in the house.
Apart from my fear of my garden fence finally collapsing under the pressure I'm doing pretty good wrapped up in my own activities. Ah, what to do next? There's so much to choose from!
 
PS Yes, I know that piece of crochet is abismal. But it's my first try after over 25 years. I have to learn all over again. ;-)

  1. Ook hier, toch 'diep in het binnenland', raast de wind om het huis. Voor mij echter geen 'cozy' studiodag... moet verplicht het één en ander poetsen (morgen kijkers voor het huis) en heb daar nu al een 'bleeehhhh' gevoel bij.. maar snel aan de slag dus, dan hou ik misschien nog wat uurtjes 'vrij' voor mezelf over aan het eind van de dag. Hou het warm Caatje, en een fijne dag!

    1. I love having options so I can move from one thing to another. I've been drawing/paintingbirds today to ad to the pieces in the second to last picture. Will show here when they're finished.

  5. I'm picking up some crocheting after many years of not doing it too! I'm making the sampler afghan from Red Heart Yarns. They give a new pattern for a square every week athough one square is repeated as a spacer 10 times. Sounds so easy yet I just have the patterns for 2 weeks sitting in front of me and I haven't been able to choose what yarn to use! Yes, you are already farther along than I am.

    So, just what is in those colorful little pouches on the center plate in the center of the first photo? I am always looking to get more organized and one more jar of pencils just doesn't do it. I am sooo out of space.

    Hang in there on your stormy winter. We had rain the other day and it was a Godsend. We are so far behind on our rainy season (winter for California) people up north are beginning to ration water in some towns. Send some of your storms our way please.

    1. Wow, you're project is much more ambitious than mine. I intend to practice by making different color squares and sewing them together to form the base of a journal cover.
      As for the pouches on my table, those have all kinds of pens, pencils and markers and one of them is filled with small tubes of acrylic paint.

  6. I think your crochet looks just fine for having had a 25 year hiatus! lol

    I love your leaf pieces too!

  7. Your "creative" room is just bursting with color. I want to know more about the art piece on your sewing desk. It looks warm and exciting. You have many artistic projects going on at one time and they all look interesting. Keep us posted on their progress.
    I live in an area of the USA that doesn't get much snow and the "experts" say we are going to get a storm of ice and snow here.
    I always say when they tell us that "I will have to see it to believe it". TFS !!!!

    1. On the sewing table are the beginnings of a handmade journao. These are the signatures,made of painted papers and connected with silk fabric. Now I need to start embellishing the pages a little and then work out a cover.
      I always have many things going on, I prefer it that way.
      Please send a little snow my way. I so want winter! :-)

  8. I really love the color of the yarn you're using. It's finally raining in Northern California. Hope your garden fence is doing well.

    1. Thanks, that's one if my favorite colours. Here's to hoping that in time I'll have something worth showing with it.
      The fence is still standing. However two even bigger storms will be visiting us this week, so we'll see how it lasts. It will probably be replaced this spring, but until then I would really like it to holp up.
