Another week, another project

Well, another week has passed and I do have a new painting on the easel.  It's one from our train trip, but I was almost done with it when I realized the perspectives were off in several places, so I'm going to let it sit for a while until I decide what to do with it.  The good parts are very, very good but the bad parts are very, very bad.

Now with all that being said,  I went ahead and started a crocheting project.  I suppose you realize now that I, for some reason, must have something to do with my hands.  I just can't not have a project.  Currently, I am crocheting a tote bag/basket to use as storage for my yarns. Sounds sort of freaky doesn't it?  Storing yarn in yarn...somewhat cannibalistic.  Anyhoo, I've looked at Etsy, and I've looked at Pinterest and I've looked at lots of fiber sites like Ravelry.  After doing much research, I decided to wing it and design as I go.  I really like doing crochet this way.

So, that's all for today.  Hopefully in a week or so, I will have a picture to share of the tote/basket which I am making using a large hook (M) and three strands of different colored yarn.  Wish me luck.

Nice to know you are keeping busy even when the art project isn't working as you want! I am stuck on my latest project and spinning the wheels. I may do some colored pencil sketching as a change! Thanks for the shove...have a fun day!

Cool! I can't wait to see!!!
Is there any other way to join Pinterest besides through Facebook or Twitter? I would love to join, but won't do either. Then again, it may be a good thing I can't join Pinterest because I'd never leave the computer. I'd have dust bunnies the size of tumbleweed.

Thanks, Peachy! It worked! I'm in! But I have no idea what I'm doing in there.

I, too, signed in at Pinterest and am having a few issues with the way it works, but I will master it. I figure it has to be relatively easy or so many people would not be a part of it, right?
BTW, how is the latest painting going? I have not done much work this week on mine, but, oh well, the weekend is nearly here!
