Some Saturday

I feel as though there are so many things that I want to do, and I get started on one project, which inspires so many more.

For instance, I mentioned this chess baord idea to Odin – the inspiration for which was a request for a 6″ knitted chess piece for a fashion show in September (more info on that later).  Six inches at a tight gauge offers loads of detail, if I can manage.  But from this commission came the inspiration for the whole chess board, and from that stemmed the inspiration, with a little help from Odin, for another game board, which currently decorates my desktop in this fashion:

I will not tell you which game I am working on.  Just count how many sides there are, and maybe that will tell you.  Any guesses?

Apart from this obsession distraction, I have a pair of wings that I kind of need to get completed this weekend.  These are the DaVinci wings, which will be used by one of the characters at the Bristol Renaissance Faire this summer.  At least, that is the intention.  Trial one sort of failed.  What I had intended to happen with the materials didn’t actually happen, and I had to remake half of the frame before I could begin again.  So this is what I have:

All that remains to be done now is attach the fabric, which still needs to be cut, but should be fairly simply to attach once I get to that point.  It will be a combination of machine and hand stitching.

Despite these works in progress, I do have a sense of accomplishment from my achievement yesterday.  I did finish one commission, at deadline, and mailed it off to it’s recipient.

I tried them on before sending them, but couldn’t find a way to take a decent picture.  They are very cute, expandable, and sturdy.  I hope the recipient likes them, and will hopefully be able to share photos of the completed ensemble here or on my website.

For now, it is a beautiful, sunny day, and our house is a mere 3 blocks from the beach.  We are going to have a picnic!
