Yarn. Well--other craft supplies too...and odd shaped bottles... But mostly Yarn. At the moment I have an entire floor to ceiling bookshelf (custom built by the other half)--1 foot deep, 6 ft wide, 8 ft tall, full of yarn of all kinds. Plus 2 stacks of the 72 Qt sterlite/rubbermaid containers.
And that's just inside. Out in the shed another 6 or 8 sterlite/rubbermaids....
Oh, and I also have about 150 dried gourds, all ready to be cleaned and decorated.
And probably a 1/2 a cord of dried seasoned mesquite waiting to be carved.
And then there is last year's 4 point buck skull, cleaned and ready to be scrimshawed, inlaid with semi-precious stones, and the horns leafed....
But I'll get to that when it speaks to me. I have to wait for the mesquite, gourds and skulls to speak to me--otherwise they get messed up. That's the way it is with stone also--anything organic, so to speak. I leave it around, and contemplate it occasionally.
And then one day--POOOF! I see what is waiting inside to come out, and HOW it wants to be expressed. Then it's just a matter of "tracing" (sort of, but not quite) what I see.
Thank goodness it happens like that, because without that special "vision", for lack of a better word, I can barely draw stick figures LOL.
The same thing happens with dried fungi--those flat ones like large plates that grow out of pine trees. When dried and wood burned, they can be really cool.
But I promised my other half NO MORE YARN until I used some up. SO--I made a bathroom set-- a copy of one I saw online that was hand crocheted in some village somewhere--fair trade, organic cotton, etc.--that cost over 350.00! for a crocheted cotton bathroom set--tank cover, lid cover, and bathmat. Not even curtains to match--so I designed my own curtains, and am finishing them up now
I am also crocheting a set of curtains for my office window, and then will start on curtains/throw pillows.etc. for the living room.....
