yesterday I finished the third of the big leaves, so now it's on to the smaller ones
and yesterday I started thinking about what the fourth and fifth panel would look like
moving right along
our theory was that a t shirt that advertises paint should have some color to it!!
when I did the wash out in the machine, I tossed in two color catchers --- and they came out of the process black
here's where the lesson in color theory comes in: when you are dealing with paint or dye, black is the presence of all color, and white is the absence of all color --- when you are talking about light, white is the presence of all color and black is the absence of all color ---
it's about 3.5 inches square, and I crocheted it for my daughter's office in about an hour
she has a new, executive job, so a tacky piece of a bar towel on the desk as a coaster under her water bottle just won't do
it was my pleasure to do this for her --- I'm very much the proud mama here --- I love seeing her be a success!
and there is a certain irony here too -- back when I had the office job she made me a fiber coaster that I used under the cup on my desk
and so the student becomes the master.......
