Crocheting a sweater has always been my dream "craft project" and it feels great to finally achieve the first step. A very large chunky cozy sweater to curl up in, on cold evenings (like today -30°C brrrr...). Feeling a happy sense of accomplishment. Now on to making a nice vest- may be to match this one...

One of the things that I really want to do this year is to devote more time to art & crafts- particularly painting- those large canvas pieces I used to make. For starters, I have decided to do small art-cards. This is just to get the creative juices flowing- they don't have to be elaborate, but atleast one card each day... something... anything that I would like to express in pictures.This should help me focus more on my Data Visualization book writing.
This is the first one... obviously much decoration is needed- but I like the message :-)

It's so hard to believe that as recent as August of this year, I was checking with fellow crocheter-s in yarn aisle for basic ideas and motivational tips. And now in just two evenings I was able to whisk up this gorgeous triangle shawl!
Now my plan for 2016 is to crochet cardigans and take up my "final craft frontier"- sewing! Sooo looking forward to finally creating works which I have drawn on paper for some time... Amen to many such relaxing, creative and fun evenings...
As things at client sites and other administrative aspects get super busy (standard just before Christmas break craziness), it's time to get "crafty" and prepare for the holidays!
Setting up my natural living home spa- complete with hand crocheted-knitted 100% cotton face cloths made from locally grown cotton (USA). It has been fun crocheting these and they feel just so great against the skin. Then there are the home made soy and bees wax candles.
Looking forward to evenings, where I can simply crochet away my next blanket in the calming ambiance of these candles with beautiful light snow falling away outside- experiencing perfect "winter glory"...
