What I made yesterday

My etching class is off to a great start - because we don't really have to learn many more techniques, every class will pretty much be a work period where we get to work one-on-one with the professor. We are only six students in this intermediate class and it'll be FUN!

Our first print is due on Tuesday, so I'll be spending some time in the print studio tomorrow and Monday. Last year, that would have felt daunting, but this time around I'm looking forward to getting to work immediately. My professor is excited about the style I want to work in (with multiple plates for each print and color) as am I! I'll keep you updated...

Now to the baby booties - I love making them. They are such a quick little project and so sweet when they are finished. These are crocheted. You know, I used to be a knitter primarily, but I am really starting to love crocheting - there's something so calming about it. These cute little shoes are for friends of ours who had a little baby boy in December.

This is going to be a busy and creative weekend and I am looking forward to checking in with some of your blogs over the next few days. In the meantime, I wish you a most beautiful weekend!

  10. What adorable booties, Silke! I remember a friend of my grandmother's made a box full of crochet booties for my first child back in '76. I wish I still had them so I could have passed them on to my daughter who now has 4 boys and expecting her first little girl very soon...my first granddaughter....am soo excited.

    Have a great week and Happy New Year.

    xxoo,
    Georgina
