Crochet & Original Art

somecrochetgoingon

I've been doing a bit of crochet lately. I enjoy keeping some mini skeins in my purse or diaper bag (yes, I have yarn in my diaper bag) and I like to work on squares when I have a few minutes here & there. I'm still working on my on going projects, Babette v1, Babette v2 and Babette v3. My faves are these really tiny 2 round squares. They're so cute.

I also made these cute earrings (in my absolute fave shade of green) for a friend for part of her birthday present. I wish I had enough leftovers in this color to make myself a pair too. The color is just stunning. I hope my friend (who hasn't gotten them yet) likes them.

My boys. Oh my lovely boys. They had an art vernissage on Friday at daycare. Of course, I had to miss it because of the problems we were having with our hot water tank. However, they each made a painting over the last number of weeks (it's a long process apparently). Let me tell you, when my mom brought the boys home from daycare on Friday, my mouth dropped. I was shocked. Look at these! Sean picked to do a Castle, as another painting inspired him, and Mack, Mr. Obsessed with the Habs (like his brother), wanted to do a Habs painting. They're fantastic. (The school does a vernissage each spring to raise money for the daycare, so the parents come & buy the artwork). My 2 new acquired original pieces of artwork are waiting to get hung up on the wall, the kids decided where they wanted them to be hung. What lovely art to add to our collection. My kids rock.

I took a crochet class today! I get it now! (well, sort of. I need to work on tension in a big way, among other things)

I was so excited, I wanted to make sure to tell you! ;)
