Ahead of time…..

Free time, spare time, or fun time?  I took all three of those times and rolled them into one, and created MY time.  I just had to have a break from just about everything this last month.  So, I got up extra early in the morning.  It gave me at least 2 hours before the sun came up and started to call me outside.  It proved to keep me even keeled during all the upheaval happening around me.

While I loved having the first pot of coffee to myself, I also enjoyed the peace and quiet the early hours of morning provide.  “Grace”, my paper doll was in need of a Halloween costume to wear.  She was sitting amongst all the fall decorations and her pajamas just weren’t going to do.  I took these early morning sessions and needlepointed her costume in record time!halloween-costume1

I just need to add the tabs to the correct places and we are ready to get dressed.  While working on this outfit, I decided to eliminate the shoes at the bottom next time.  It will definitely make it easier to create my own designs later, when I get a few more outfits under my belt.


There we are, but now she’ll have to wait until Halloween to show off our costume!

I am excited too!  I get to start a new afghan….. 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!
