I've been crocheting a shrug for my DD.I know it doesn't look to cool on the dress form and also I'm not finished yet.I have to add ruffles and sleeve bands according to the pattern.I'm following my first crochet pattern,so I'm a little excited.But I should warn you.I am an artist and the more I learn,the more I will toss into my work.After I get the basics down,then I will start to to add my own style.There is no telling what kind of monstrosities I might turn out.

Later,I will add a pic of my DD wearing the finished product.Maybe I can have it done by the end of the weekend.

I've been painting and collaging a new piece.It is also a work in progress.I'm stuck right now,so I thought I'd take a break.As usual,I got a few projects going on at once.

This is inspired by my shoe obsession.I love shoes but heres the thing.My feet are big.Excuse me,I mean ....BIG.(I wear size 11 and 12) Now don't get me wrong.There is nothing wrong with my self esteem or anything like that.In fact my issue is with shoe manufactures and designers.They don't seem to realize that there are plenty of big footed fashionistas,who want fashion forward shoes. I personally,know a lot of women who wear the same size shoe.We buy plenty of shoes and will buy plenty more as long as we can find our size.

Anyway,after an unsucessful day of shoe shopping.I came home with a bad attitude.After medicating myself with a bottle of beer and a bag of Nacho Cheese Doritoes,I began this painting/collage.I post it again when it's done.

I finished reading"Susannah's Garden".It was kinda boring .Now I'm reading this. So far so good.

Lisa, I love the blog and the shrug and the collage, very cool. I am a shoe thing as well. I wear a 10 and I can't tell you how annoyed I get when all the cute shoes are a size 6. I mean really, who wears a six????
