To the West!

I have officially moved west! While I will definitely miss exploring the beauty of Austin, the mountains are calling my name! 🙂 I will have to take a few photography adventures in the coming days! In the meantime, I’ll start the ball rolling for June’s challenge (can’t believe June is only a week away! Yikes!)

For June’s Nature Art Challenge, I’d like to shake things up a little bit–moving to a completely new medium: yarn! In the coming days, I will be posting information about crochet and crochet EMBROIDERY (which is the technique that I will use for my nature explorations).

Here’s one example that I came across:

Click on the image to see close-up images of this embroidered work, and tune in over the next couple of days to learn the techniques that will be used for this month’s challenge!

Tools that you will need for the challenge:

yarn (any color or size will do)

crochet hook (the size depends on the yarn that you wish to use. I generally like to use a size 6 or 7 hook)

scissors

‘Til later…happy explorations!

    • what types of knots do you make? I’d love to see pictures! The June Challenge focuses on exploring the environment through crochet, but any type of exploration with yarn or rope would definitely count!
