It’s blue beetle!

Well, not quite! Actually it’s a blue and red cotton harlequin bug (Tectocoris diophthalmus I believe). I have finished my painting!

This week we decided that we could just paint a home rather than pay a bunch to get only a little help. The big difference we found was that our brushes were not as good as the ones from the “class” we attended last week. But with the $40 a class per person we will be saving, we will definitely have the money to invest in better brushes for next week!

I also started on a new painting. Can you guess what/who will be on the couch? (hint: it’s pokemon related!)

To finish, my latest coded pictures 🙂 I’m using that as my background on my phone, I just think it’s too cute!

Frame and new project 

Howdy!

Already the middle of the week, and I’ve been pretty busy!

Here is my deer all framed! 

I forgot to post about my MOOC on Monday, so here it is! We are still on pattern recognition and reproduction, so I made this in only 9-10 lines of code! Yay!   Also I have found a project to replace the CAL finishing on Friday 😊 I will be stitching a Pokemon alphabet. I’ve been looking for Pokemon I really like and putting a pattern together.

First Pokemon will be up on Friday so stay tuned!

When Monday doesn’t feel like a Monday

Hello crafters!

Today was Labour Day in the country of Oz, so we got an extra day to relax! I haven’t done much more of my programming course, but I’m already well into week 2 so that’s ok! We had to code for a house with a fence and make the lines for the roof and fence thicker than for the house.

I added some flowers and tried to make the house in 3D.

I also had to work with patterns so I made this design, changing the colours of the squares in the background and creating overlapping circles.

Also I decided to finish one of my forgotten half-cross stitch WIPs. I really like the design but I just got demotivated because I can’t really see the progress on it (probably due to the painted background). I think it must have been sitting in a drawer for 3-4 years, so I’d like to finish it by the end of the year, will see how I go! 🙂

I also got this little dude done over the weekend! I really love mudkip, it might actually be my fave starter!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Week off and new goals

Hi guys!

You are probably wondering where week 9 is for my Mystery Afghan CAL. Well, I took a break this week.With the field trip I didn’t really get time to have any crochet done and I also have to finish the birthday present for my friend (her birthday was yesterday and we are celebrating today!).

 Little bulbasaur is all finished and ready for his new home! I also attached a string a the top so the necklace/bag hanger is complete!

I have also completed my first MOOC on the rise of superheroes from the Smithsonian, I will post my drawings in here later. Some of the art/stories submitted by the other participants were pretty amazing!

I was happy I pulled through and did all the assignments in time, so I decided to challenge myself a bit more, so I am now enrolled to the Think. Create. Code.  course from  university of Adelaide. You have probably guessed it, it’s a programming course and it is mainly focused on digital art creation.

Here are a few screenshots of what I have coded so far for the course.

Also, because we have entered the last quarter of the year, I have decided to make a list of what I want to achieve for the end of the year:

CRAFTS

• Finish my CAL (should be done in 2 weeks – posts on Friday).

• Find another WIP to post every Friday when the CAL is completed (already have a few ideas!).

•  Post regular updates of my Edx programming course (Mondays).

• Craft Christmas presents and cute decorations for our first Christmas in our house (we went to my parents’ last year).

PERSONAL

• Prepare my itinerary for Europe next July.

• Finish preparations for my wedding next year.

• Go to the gym at least twice a week (my aqua gym classes have been cancelled, so I need to find something else I like to do).

WORK

• Finish writing my second paper for my PhD.

• Keep my LinkedIn and ResearchGate profiles up to date.

What do you have planned for the end of 2015?
