It has been a strange week for me, workwise it was not very productive: I have been working on this proposal for the last few weeks and just when I thought I'd got it, it all fell to pieces. And for some reason I can't seem to get it together in the way I wanted, and on top of that, I'd missed my deadline (self-imposed). So, you might say I was a little frustrated.
Vivian told me to get knitting when my brain's got scattered, so I did. I managed to finish the Sugar Veyla that I started last week. They came out quite well I think, and I decided to give these to my cousin for her birthday, hope she likes them.
On the spinning front I made little progress, still trying to grasp the drafting technique. And, not content with having just one spindle I made one myself using this tutorial except I made mine a bottom whorl.
This was my first try at making anything with polymer clay, the centre cracked a little bit when I pushed the dowel (bamboo super chopstick cut short) through the hole even though I did let it cool. I dabbed the cracks with super glue so hopefully it will hold. It spins a lot faster than my top whorl which is quite nice. Next time I will make the hole bigger before baking.
Oh well, that's me wrapped up for this week, it hasn't gone as planned but one can't always has one's own way, such is life. I guess we'll have to make the best of whatever there is :)
