I always end up delaying posts trying to include updates for all my different projects, but I don't work on all my projects every week, so it takes weeks and weeks to build a post that has pictures of all the various projects. There will be a longer post (someday) with other photos in it, but for now, a few tidbits.
My finished Tinysaurus. It took me about one hour to put it together, but I was so excited I rushed through it. I certainly could have taken more time on it. Also I didn't end up using the tweezers because I found them to be more of a burden than a help.
And just a taste of some Ukrainian Easter eggs that I dyed this weekend. While not technically a needle art, Ukrainian egg dying does use a kistka which has a needle like point, so I'm going to let that slide. Here is one I did in desert colors with an Ocotillo on the front and back and Brittle Bush flowers around the side. The second one has some starfish and jellyfish on it, and a sand dollar on the bottom. The rest of the photos of the process are being held captive in the internal memory of my camera and I'll post them when I can. The process of making the eggs was a little unnerving to me because I'm not comfortable with free form, but the color mixing/layer part was right up my alley. I plan to dye more tomorrow, so we'll see what happens.
UPDATE: My mom tells me she heard about Reknit on NPR and that it is a mother-SON team, not mother daughter. Me and my sexist assumptions. It would seem that children of any sex can put their moms to work. After reading the NPR article, now I'm just outraged for this woman. I mean, I understand that she is not being forced at gunpoint to knit scarves, but 7-8 hours of work for $30! This is why I am always very polite but firm with people who suggest that I sell my stuff.
Currently working with three types of needles of various sizes to create all manner of soft objects

knit it or forget it.
