Love & Peace

Well, my goddess now has arms plus a little revision. Out went the fruit and the heavy worsted weight embroidery and in came lots of practice at bullion knot roses.

So, instead of being a goddess of plenty, she's now a flower power goddess. She's a real 60's wild child witnessed by the symbols on her back. Love and peace, man! ;-)

What else? Well, I made Jared Flood's Habitat hat for Becca's Chemo Hats project.

I didn't think I liked knitting cables but I really enjoyed knitting this!

Much to my surprise I gathered the confidence to join this project. Basically, you choose a theme and do one beaded project a month within this theme for the whole year and then decide how to display them. Well, I thought it would motivate me to try this out after dabbling my feet in the water with the beaded dotees but no way can I compare my feeble efforts with that of a lot of the really talented people that are taking part in this project. However, everyone has to start somewhere and this is where I'm starting. I've commenced January's effort but it's not finished yet as there is so much else going on. I will have to catch up, hopefully, in February. The theme I've chosen is 'Women of Myth' and my first is entitled 'Sea Siren'.
