Jan 2015 - Winter Weekend Projects

El Segundo Blue Butterfly
Of the 24 items listed as possible for the weekend, I actually accomplished 13. Now, of course, one must carefully select what is to be done, to maximize the number of completions. To say that some were, well, trivial, would be correct.

Some of the "projects" were quite simple, requiring only a little time (but the relaxed atmosphere to take that time), such as sanding the wooden notebook cover, cutting out Chronology cards, playing Chronology, making a short finger loop braid.

Some were learning and teaching projects, such as learning how to turn a pashmina scarf into pseudo-braids, how to get Microsoft Word to do a very specific thing I wanted it to do, teaching some finger loop braiding, and figuring out ear irons with two other geeks.

A few were creative, like stitching a blackwork fern design, designing more blackwork pages, stitching a blackwork broom plant design, putting together an Elizabethan coif from a Spoonflower purchase, and helping to create a steamed and wired black felt hat. All and all, very productive and lots of fun.
