|All the clutter mess-ies|
All together now, I've invested a grand total of $125 into my craft room. That includes the storage container purchases and previous purchases. I'm still looking to get a 4 foot workbench with a pegboard backboard for just my resin accessories storage but that's not a priority right now. I do have some shuttles to finish and send off.
The progress on the slave bracelet for my friend from work.
I've used a 'celtic' type design on it. Really I began with the band which was inspired by a picture I found on facebook that triggered a memory of a tutorial I had read before. Which in turn led to me reading a bunch of other tutorials I downloaded or printed....My Honey says it looks "awesome" and so far I'm happy with the results. I just need to come up with a concept for creating a stabilizer for the sides. Ironically, it was pictures of crop circles online that helped with this design. I showed the design to my friend and she informed me that while she loved the way it's looking so far, she didn't want any white in it. Looks like I have to redo this in all black. I'm a little bit disappointed, because I liked the way the two colors played on each other. I don't think the pattern will show up as nicely in all black. I do have some size 20 purple but having to redo the stitch count may be more of a headache than I planned to deal with.
Jennifer Williams. The one in the forefront is size 10 the three in the background are size 20 crochet thread. I can hardly wait to make this in size 80. The pattern is so simple that it's genius! All you really need is one shuttle to make it.
