If it's not one thing...

I want so badly to be making new stuff, but life keeps getting in my way. I took the winter off from clay to spare my fingers as much cracking and bleeding as possible. I did some microcrochet, but I've had a long string of colds, so it's been slow going with that. Now just as I'm about to get back to the clay...I have a cut on my index finger, from a broken pickle jar, so I have to wait...and I can't hold a crochet hook comfortably either! I'm pining for minis so strongly right now! My sister's birthday present will be the next thing I post....when I finish it. Erg.

For now... here's most of a tiny bear I made a few weeks ago. I've finished it since (and made it a scarf), but I don't have photos yet. Ignore the phone blurriness (no macro) and the nasty orange walls of the office. I miss when they were beige! I swear it makes my clay color mixing go weird sometimes.

Another non-update

I haven't fallen off the face of the earth or anything, just haven't been feeling great. You know you're sick when crochet is exhausting. The antibiotics will be done by this time tomorrow and I should be feeling better in a few days. As for clay minis... I'm full of ideas, but crochet is more suitable lately. In the spring, maybe sooner, I'll be back to clay again.

Getting sidetracked!

I took an unexpected hiatus from clay and just when I was about to pick it up, another branch of minis reached out and grabbed me! I hadn't done microcrochet in about 15 years (when I was in middle school), but I couldn't pass up a pack of tiny hooks for just a couple bucks.

Here's my practice so far. It's sewing thread with a 10 hook.
