Rainbow WIP

Finished the last of the tiny mitered squares today; all 64! If that’s not a bucket of joy, I don’t know what is!

I’ve started joining them together into squares of 4, which is probably going to be the most tedious part of the process. This is because *apparently* I’m going to have to weave in 4 little ends per big square join UGH. I know it’s not a lot but I am so tired of ends after the first blankie! So far, 2 down & 14 more to go!

My blue maze is complete! It reminded me of ocean colors, so there you have it. I feel like I really learned a lot about brush and water control during this piece. I also learned a lot about color mixing for blue palettes!

If you’re interested in purchasing and/or commissioning my artwork, please feel free to stop by my Etsy shop “AmberRoseRules”!

Crochet the Rainbow

I have been working hurriedly on two baby blankets for two little babies coming from one mama in (theoretically) February…but since we all know that “babies do what they want” is basically just twofold with twins, I feel like every minute counts for getting these completed.

The first one is completed and turned out WAY better than expected! I learned a new color change technique along the way and the border really made the blanket come to life.

The next blankie should be a breeze, just a lot of sewing together. I’m excited to see how they look side by side!!!

Site Reboot

Hi All! I had basically abandoned this blog for a variety of reasons last year. Primarily, that I wasn’t as engaged as I thought I was going to be for how much time I was putting into it. Also, my laptop is old and dysfunctional and it never occurred to me that “there’s an app for that” lol

Fast forward to my ever-growing deep dissatisfaction with Instagram (my primary social media). I tried Ello for a good month–a good idea, but basically a pile of trash…and then it dawned on me…I might have a more rewarding experience on WordPress if I actually engage in the communities I’m deeply invested in–art, crochet, ceramics, memery. So moving forward, this blog is going to take a sharp turn for look what I can do! I will still probably post reviews, since I more or less do that on Instagram anyways as part of the “me” experience.
