Things are coming along, just thought I’d show you one of each woven square.    As I had said, the repetitiveness of just creating the strips was not a whole lot of fun.  I was also terribly curious as to how it was accomplished.  I was able to show you the process for weaving the strips.  The finishing was ingenious, you only crocheted in the ends of the strips all the way around.  The strips then were firmly held in place and I removed the safety pins and finished the last round.  I really like them……

Okay, I admit it, I couldn’t wait to see how they looked attached!  The first rows is started.  This project will take me well into the new year.  I have 4 of 90 (maybe more) squares finished, very pleased with it so far though.  For the next 3 to 4 weeks I will be working twice as many hours at work.  A co-worker had emergency surgery and I was asked to fill her position while she is out.  So, my part time hours just went full time.  There isn’t going to be as many crafting hours as I like (need really, its an addiction, lol) , so progress will slow way down.

It’s all good though, I will appreciate the free time to craft when they return to work healthy and I go back to my abbreviated schedule again.  Cyn

About designbycyn

Sonoma County, California ceramic enthusiasts Cyn and Steven Gradek have worked in the clay medium since 1996. They had a retail store where they held classes and provided the essentials for fellow ceramic enthusiasts. The business evolved into producing for other retail outlets and artist. Which quickly grew and they closed the retail storefront and concentrated on the wholesale business. With their 3 children raised and on their own, they had time to pursue their own creativity. Cyn learned how to embroider from her Grandma Cirner at a young age. After that she found sewing, cross stitching, crocheting, well you get the jist, LOL. She hasn't met a craft that she hasn't liked. Blogging was suggested by her youngest daughter, Colleen. At first it was a battle to get her to try it, but eventually Cyn started to enjoy the exercise. The blog on Cyn's website designbycyn.com was limiting, so Colleen got her started with Wordpress. Hope you enjoy her Adventures with Creativity!
