Elengil, all of those are wonderful. I so respect and honor your talents! I learned to sew but never loved it; learned a little about drawing but stopped; played music and loved it, in orchestras, but lost the opportunity. Writing is all I’ve kept, and it’s not creating something you can hold in your hand—except for the few lucky times I’ve gotten something published.

You seem like someone who surrounds herself with beauty she created. I admire that so very much. :love:


I love to sew but (despite appearances) I never really learned it! Mostly self-taught as an adult. I never grew up sewing or knitting or anything like that. I know there are so many bad habits I have just because I don't really know any other way. I actually prefer hand sewing because I feel I have so much more control over what I'm doing, though . Of course the machine goes so much faster, but isn't nearly as enjoyable.

But thank you so much for your kind words! I like to think I am spending more time doing more productive things I love than time just fiddled away. <3

Yikes! She must drink a lot of coffee. How long would all that take?

It’s beautiful, really. I especially like the girl sitting on a tree branch in the stairwell.

Wow! I wouldn't have one in my house, but encountering one in a public place would be interesting.

A semi-shawl, if I can finish the last three or so rows.

I have been making things for other people for a while and decided it was time to make some for myself. Besides, I am trying to keep myself busy/distracted today (I'm fasting).

So this is what I've been doing~

The round lid goes to my large sewing kit, and the box ... I'm not sure what I'm going to use the box for just yet. Maybe holding my calligraphy supplies. :)

Acrylics, yeah. I did the sketch in pencil, went over that in a fine point pen, then painted, then touched up the outline as needed.

The lines are so perfect, I almost thought it was a stick on decal! But I knew you wouldn't be decorating with something like that.

Congratulations! That really turned out well.

:gladhug: Aw!

I used some drafting tools to get the grid drawn on the one, used a template to draw the extend of the red/black circle on the other and the curved lines between the red and black segments, then had to hand-sketch in the offsets on either side for the inner white circle and the outer knotwork extents.

Everything else was hand sketched (which is why I started in pencil! LOL)
