Embroidery Sampler WIP

Chelsea and I got together Tuesday for a Crafternoon! We embroidered and mostly gossiped, it was nice. I started work on a sampler; I'm adding lots of different textures and keeping the color palette blue. Here is my progress so far, I'm a little worried about the roving getting pulled or felted while I'm working around it.

Halfway Done!

My Shetland wool week hat is halfway done! I've been spending most of my lunch breaks knitting and I'm not sure why I was worried about the color combo... they look great!

I'm off to a bit of a slow start for this hat, but I'm determined to finish it up by the end of the month! So far I've knit the brim and one half of the first chart repeat. Very exciting!

Jellyfish Paint Night

For our last crafternoon, Chelsea and I followed a YouTube jellyfish painting tutorial by Angela Anderson. There came a point that my jellyfish looked pathetic and I was planning on reusing the canvas for something else (like when I was having problems painting landscapes recently), but she said the jellyfish looks bad before it looks good and we kept painting and gave the jellyfish larger bells. By the time we were done our jellyfish looked pretty decent. Here are mine and Chelsea's jellyfish:
