Alright now things are happening! So... I'm totally not done cranking out diamonds, but I've started constructing this blanket. YES! I'm pretty sure I started this project last August? So this project is almost a year old! So much for being inspired and crafting my brains out. I've been lazy and unmotivated but I'm trying. After finishing up the latest batch of diamonds, I kinda laid out most of them on my bed and I must say, it's making me excited about it.
LOOK! Do you see it?? Do you the Vasarely-ness happening right now? At this point I realized I didn't have any yarn to start joining the diamonds together, so the very next day I made a trip to Michael's and created my very first cube. How exciting!
And then I got more excited and added another cube to that cube:
And then the excitement died down after attempting to weave all those damn ends. I cursed a little, and stopped. I'm pretty sure weaving in those ends will be the most annoying part of the procedure. I regret not doing them earlier. But at least the blanket is finally coming along. :-D
I should really use my nail stamp/plates more often. I was going for that negative space thing that's been going on, so I just put a sheer white underneath to try and cancel out my visible nail line. But the sheer white was a bit too sheer. Oh well, I still like them.
Sheer White: OPI - Don't Touch My Tutu!
Black: Konad Stamping Polish
