Today is the reveal for the second challenge of our group Challenging ourselves and once again there is lots of interesting pieces posted. Here is mine.

I painted the scenes with craft acrylics and then
did thread painting on top to highlight the pictures. I then did some beading .

I am enjoying the group so much and love looking at all the new work. I hope you will visit
the group see the side bar, and check out the
reveal today.

I am working on a beautiful cardigan and it is slowly getting done. It has been a
long while since I knitted a pattern and found this one confusing. I saw the finished
cardigan in a wool shop here in Calgary, and tried it on and fell in love with it.

I decided to cut back on my art work for awhile and decided to do this sweater.

I find the pattern hard to understand but have struggled through it and have the
back and both fronts nearly done. I am so glad I stuck with it and I know it is
going to be nice when I finish it. I am not sure whether I am allowed to show
the pattern but here are the pieces I have finished. It is pattern l04 Garn Studio

The beginnings of the cardigan are wonderful. I do hope you get it finished and show us the results.
