Those of you who also follow me on facebook, will already have seen the first part of this: On the first of April, while tidying up my studio in preparation of packing it up, a crochet hook crossed my way and I thought I’d try and see whether I can remember how to crochet. As the image shows, the answer is “sort of”. I immediately fell in love with this horrible and wonky assembly of loops, and decided to mount it on some board and see how it will print. And this is the result:
I find the result completely underwhelming, although I cannot really say what else I had expected. I’ll see whether I will add something more to it to make it interesting.
In the meantime, I window is being added to the outhouse (which will host my studio). The back of the outhouse shows, that I am not the first to add or brick up windows and doors.
The main building itself is looking more and more like a construction site. The flooring is gone, the kitchen is gone, and everything looks like it is getting from bad to worse. Hope fully, once we start putting things in, things will begin to look better. On an interesting side note. The removal of the kitchen has exhibited some remnands of old wallpaper which I found quite interesting:
And I sketching a little to maintain some sanity. Here is my penultimate (31 of 32) page in my beach findings sketchbook, more images can be found on ipernity. I also have been drawing some fish. But I don’t know, maybe with 346 slowly coming to an end, I might be done with drawing fish, at least for a while. I do have a bunch of fish and feather prints which I always wanted to bundle up somehow. Maybe I’ll make something small from them. I don’t know yet, and I currently have a lot of time to think about these things. Today the kids went back to school, and I start packing boxes for real. At the same time, our likely moving date is not coming nearer, so that makes things on that front a little easier.
