I finally got up during the daylight hours today! I wasn't feeling well at all, but I dragged myself out of bed and Amy and I wandered around trying to find a place to take some photos of our projects. We stumbled across a red barrier that had recently been put up around the Bhuts and decided that little splash of color would be nice for the photo shoot.
Surprisingly most of the guys that walked by as we were taking photos were genuinely interested without poking fun. Seeing all that color in the drab environment we're living in I think would make anyone smile.
Amy has been a knitting champ. She mentioned that she felt like she hadn't done much in her spare time here.. well I beg to differ. She has made:
- 8 cup coozies
- a washcloth with my initial on it :)
- gift bag (with another in progress)
- hat (in progress)
Those are just the knitted projects. In fact, after seeing all her projects laid out, I felt like I was one who had been wasting time away! We both have also done some paper crafting with magazines which was also fun.
Check out our colorful creations:
Getting crafty in the MWR building: covering a box with cool pages from a magazine, and me getting started on embroidery project. Amy's Christmas present from me. Gift bag made of magazine paper plus yarn for arm warmers project
I started this embroidery a while back and it was super fun to do.
The violet yarn for this cowl looks nice against the embroidery. Love all the colors.
It's been a lot of fun having Amy next door to share in all the crafting creativeness. It's almost time to go home!!! I hope I can keep up the projects once I get back to regular life.
