So... we've had so much snow, it's not funny. I understand that everyone has, but my three younger siblings had no school last week while I had college. Other than that, though, I've been stuck inside. I've worn out my project ideas. I've made Valentine's Day cards. I've actually studied. I've rearranged my room.
While cleaning out my closet, I found two pair of really old, rather destroyed jeans. The knees were completely blown out and this pair had paint down the front. So, I cut the legs off so I'd have more shorts in the summer. (I miss summer!) And I have BOXES of embroidery floss lying around, so I figured I would try needlepoint. ( I hand-sew everything, anyway.) And I like ships and octopi. No references, I just kinda went for it. That's how I do my charcoals and everything else. Planning takes too long. This only took a few hours total. But I still need to hem the backs of the legs.
All in all, this was a productive, albeit cabin fever-ish weekend. And I start back in the art gallery tomorrow. I'll be getting paid again!
A question for you:
What should I put on the other pair of shorts I made?
Another question for you:
What did you do today, to celebrate Valentine's Day or Chinese New Year?
