My family and I have been through a very rough season this year. I know that I haven’t been posting lately. It is because I had to work through some things. I know many people use art to work out their issues. I have been utterly unable to paint. It seems I have lost whatever it was that allowed me to do that. Each time I have tried to paint, I simply go blank and feel guilty that I should be doing something more productive. This is not my inner critic. I just don’t feel like it.
I have begun to try something that is utterly new for me instead. I have always crocheted from patterns, with very little variation. I had a dream a few days ago of a hat with a face on it, so I decided to try. It isn’t exactly like the hat in my dream, but here is my new “art.” I hope you enjoy. By the way, I opened a shop on Etsy recently. The hat is for sale there for anyone interested. AdornWithSplendor
By the way, if any of you have ever made something from a dream post below and tell me about it. I would love to hear!

I am not sure how many of you have stuck with me, but thank you for doing so. I have had a personal issue which I am still dealing with. I will be picking up soon and showing you some of what I am working on.

I finished the crochet along. I really like how my bunny turned out. But as I made it, I had some ideas on how to change it up a bit to make an art doll. I thought I would share my progress, as I go along.
First, I took the pattern for the crochet bunny from lionbrand.com. I did not make the ears or the tail, and I made all the body one color. It was Wool Ease, color Blush Heather. Do not use wool ease if you are allergic to wool. I had to learn this lesson the hard way.
Then, I took some fabric. I had some leftover gold lame, which I thought would accent the colors in the clothes I plan to make. I stretched it over an embroidery hoop, and I painted faces the same size as the face disk I crocheted.
