Penrose

Here’s today’s progress, the first of 8 segments.  Supposedly I can make it larger, not sure if I will or not.  The part at the top is actually the center of the circle.  It wasn’t until I was most of the way through this segment that I realized the instructions tell you what order to make the pieces and what ones to pick up sts of of another, etc.  I was just winging it!  (I got all but a couple right)

As of today, I’ve earned 24 motifs, have finished these 20.  Perhaps I’ll get the other ones done tonight?

The batteries died on the camera, so hopefully I’ll find the charger and be ready to go with the next picture!

More pictures!

I did a lot of crafting the last two days – I had plenty of other stuff I *should* be doing, but goofed off instead.

Here’s a new pattern that I bought, called “Little Beau Peep” Hat.  It’s absolutely worth the $5.oo, the design is impressive.  There isn’t a single seam to sew in this!  My picture doesn’t do it justice.

And here is my “reward” afghan.  I’ve done 13 of the motifs I’ve earned.  I hope to catch up so that I have daily incentive.  This pattern has given me some very interesting ideas to ponder…

The squares on the tile are 15″, to give you an idea of its size.  I think this will be over 4′ in diameter if I make it as shown. (You can adapt the Penrose pattern to be larger)

Picture Time!

Below, is my inspiration project.  I’ve long wanted to do this one.  I have been working hard at changing my eating habits, and every day that I am a good girl, I reward myself with being able to do one motif:
