The Eclipse 2017. So many emotions. Definitely on the bandwagon now. We had eclipse glasses but I made a viewer from a cereal box to look at and it worked well. Don’t mind the center blob – didn’t quite make a perfect circle for that one.
I love all things rainbow which of course includes the Rainbow Bridge! I wanted to make a baby quilt showing Asgard and the Bifrost and tried to design something on graph paper and then Excel (my favorite-usually-free-quilting-tool). Not sure it’s obvious though…
I’ve been trying to downsize my craft supplies in an attempt to make it easier on myself a few years down the line when we move house. I decided to make one last crown to use up my beads and then give my supplies away. I barely put a dent in my crown beads, smh. Here’s an in progress pic of just the red/orange/yellow section. I somehow magically had 7 sections of color (ROYGBPP) and a 21″ crown so each section of 2 inches of a color and 1 inch of overlap with the next color.
Once the crown was done, I toyed with adding some details to give the illusion of being taller but it was so much work I took the section I did out. I didn’t think it looked bad though.
Final product. Debating keeping it to wear on Halloween or give away to a friend. It’s just so pretty I kind of want to keep it despite the fact that I will NEVER wear it out.
