In Review: April 2018

My art accomplishments for April 2018.

As I spent the first week of April on vacation and part of the month was spent getting ready for my daughter’s May wedding, I didn’t get as much done as I would have liked. But here is what I did do.

While not actually period, I’ve noticed a lot of people crochet things for SCA. So I thought I would include this project in my blog. I crocheted a hat for myself, designing it for my comfort.


I started weaving Egyptian Diagonals.

I worked some more on my blackwork chessboard.

I set up and started a new 12-strand kumihimo strand.

I spent a day at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and another day at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. I’ve been to both in the past but had forgotten how many tapestries were at the Isabella Gardner. I really enjoyed my visits to both museums.

I warped another loom with a 4F4B threaded-in pattern to make either trim or garters. No pictures of the warping, though.

And I attended a Queen’s Favor making workshop. No pictures of this, either, unfortunately.

That’s about it for April. May is looking to be another busy month for me but I’ll see what I can get done for art.

See you next month!!
