You may have noticed… Steff and I… not so great at in progress updates and pictures. We swear we’re trying to get better! To prove it here is a little guy that’s in process now:
Crocheted truck and three pom pom’s for the leaves – this little guy is on his way! Way to what.. I’m not sure. Right now I’m thinking of making a few crochet and non crochet tree jar pieces. I still can’t decide if I would want everything in the jar to be made of yarn or not for this tree. I don’t want it to be too yarny but I also don’t want the yarn to look out of place with some other material. Unfortunately, I haven’t been eating a lot of food that comes in jars lately, leaving my “art supplies” a little low. Spaghetti dinner anyone?
Speaking of trees… here is another piece I’ve been working on…forever…
I don’t even know if I want to talk about this one due to being so embarrassed that it’s STILL not done. It was a chicken wire frame… for months.. then it was a mod podge fabric decoupage trunk… for months… then I was super motivated! I hand cut and stitched all the leaves, glued/wired them on – and then!!!! I ran out of thread… lost my momentum… and there it sits. I plan to finish it soon though. Upon Steff’s suggestion I think I might make a preserved twig bonsai tree type base filled with moss to put it in.
PS – I love that you can see my awesome Martha Stewart Glitter in the background. yes!
