Outfit of the Day – 7/23

Project 333 is a minimalist challenge to dress only using 33 pieces of clothing & accessories for 3 months. To track what I am actually using in this quarter’s capsule, I am sketching my outfits on Monday-Wednesday. It’s also good sketching practice!

Today’s sketch is rough. I couldn’t get the mix on my shirt color right – I need to pick up a nice turquoise as a convenience color. I thought I was starting to get the proportions right, but today was difficult.

Outfit of the Day - 7/23

The boots are the same ones I wore on the first and third days. And the skirt is the same one from the first day, but it’s the black side instead of the patterned grey side.

 

 

 

Outfit of the Day – 7/22

Project 333 is a minimalist challenge to dress only using 33 pieces of clothing & accessories for 3 months. To track what I am actually using in this quarter’s capsule, I am sketching my outfits on Monday-Wednesday. It’s also good sketching practice!

Tuesday’s outfit was pretty simple – just my Mind the Gap tee that I got in the UK and my skinny jeans. I forgot my mala beads this morning. I also wore a pair of shoes that are technically not in my 33, they are my yard work shoes. But I was feeling lazy, and felt like wearing something that was easy to kick off. I really should throw them away – they have a hold in one toe, but I love my skull shoes. I am stubbornly hanging on to them.

Tour de Fleece – Days 17 & 18

I got some bad news from my optometrist on Monday – my eye infection went into a sty on my eyelid and the medication isn’t helping. I have to go to an ophthalmologist next week to see about further treatment.  So I was not in the best of moods, and decided to go ahead and use the rest day instead of making up the day I skipped on Saturday.

I did get some spinning done tonight – I finished spinning a quarter of the ITW Captain Tightpants. The first half of it is still being spun on my Turkish drop spindle.

Tour de Fleece – Days 15 & 16

Tour de Fleece Day 15

I had a big fat failure on Saturday – it was the Challenge day, and I did not spin a single inch of yarn. I was so tired after Friday night’s trip to the Dallas Museum of Art that I slept late, was extremely lazy, and then went to some friends’ house for dinner and some games. I brought my Turkish spindle along, but I never even took it out! We were too busy eating, talking, and playing card games.

I did start spinning the second half of the ITW Captain Tightpants on my wheel tonight. I am still working on the first half on the Turkish spindle, but it’s been on there forever, and I’d like to finish it, so I figured I would get it started.

Monday is the second and last rest day. I might spin anyway to make up for Saturday, but I’m not sure, yet. We’ll see.

 

My favorite things (this week!)

Mudd, the bulldog on a trampoline!

The Index Card a Day Challenge (ICAD) at Daisy Yellow Art. Every year I’m like, I’d love to do this! But I never see if again until near the end of it then next year, so I just wait till next year. Rinse, repeat. But this year I added the feed to my RSS reader, so hopefully I will get a reminder next year!

Tickling a platypus! (Don’t try this with a wild one, they have poisonous spurs!)

Shadow art created from everyday things

I went to see the exhibit Mind’s Eye – Masterworks on Paper from David to Cézanne at the Dallas Museum of Art on Friday night, and it was wonderful. If you are in Dallas, go see it.
