This week start small meant start slow

 

If you’ve never listened to David Rakoff’s Wedding Toast, you really should. It’s wonderful.

 

Only two goals this week: test some interfacing and make afghan squares. I got one done. The easy one. Interfacing. As far as squares go, I am about three rows away from being done with one. Not where I wanted to be, but at least I started.

And this week, another project was partly to blame. I spent a few hours Wednesday and Thursday nights wrapping up a few small paintings. My favorite gallery in town is the Toucan Gallery and every other year leading up to the holidays they have a small works sale. Submissions are open to everyone, and the only major limitation is that no dimension of the piece can exceed five inches. It makes for a really fun mix of stuff in a good range of prices. My main goal was to keep my time and material costs low. Partly for selfish reasons, but also so someone else can maybe afford a new piece of art. So often things like that seem like a luxury. I have been lucky enough to stumble across a few pieces of art I love that were affordable, so it’s time for me to help someone else out.

Ah, a favorite quote to go with a favorite picture.

Not much different from where it was on Wednesday, but the extra metallic really added a lot.

Overall, I am pretty happy with how they all turned out. So I am taking it in stride that more crocheting didn’t get done. Plus, there is always this week to look forward to. So tonight I will think of what the next step is and I will add some new start small steps tomorrow. See you then!
