It has been a cold weekend, and that meant staying inside as it is not fun being out in 18-degree weather. I did some sketching yesterday while watching the news. I am not a good sketcher, but could not allow my ideas to disappear from my mind forever. I got an idea for a knit felting project while reading Inside Crochet called the snowflake tote. I liked the tote bag, but had another vision for the bag. Almost a week and half ago, I was walking to work in the rain and noticed a broken branch on the ground. I thought broken branch on wet concrete and it would make a nice painting, but the tote bag can make a great canvas for the broken branch on wet concrete. I have to warn you that my sketches are not the best in the world, but it was fun and satisfying to do them. Now I have another skills to learn embellishing my knitting and crocheting work. Hand embroidery and felting (I do not own a machine, so hand felting it is). This is the process of allowing creativity to flow on a cold day in January. Ciao for now!
