192,Really?




I saw this photo on Apartment Therapy and feel in love, had to make it. I needed something to do at night that didn't require a lot of light.  I was also gonna go on a road trip…I could take this along and work on it as we drove. This was a prefect project. Just needed to make it a little bigger to fit the bed.
Sounded logical but then I had to buy all the colors since I recently gave away my yarn (anything that wasn't wool) supply. And had to figure out the pattern, which is a round inside a square. Once that was done I was off, happily crocheting….haven't done this for many, many years. 
I was about 50 squares in…road trip done, thrill of starting a new project over, when I asked myself "how many squares do I need to do? 192 ...really? What did I get myself into?

What I have so far.

Rusty Vintage



I have been working on oil and wax paintings all summer enjoying ever moment of painting. Letting myself be inspired by the Wisconsin countryside. I will post some pictures soon. Even through I haven't been print making this summer I have managed to  pick up a few rusty pieces. Yesterday on Homayoon's bike ride he found a gorgeous piece of rust and a beautiful feather, he was kind enough to bring it home for me . I can't wait to see what prints I can get out of it. 


Does anyone know what this round thing was before it was rusted, ran over and left by the roadside?
