Day 97 - Fiber Art

Something different! I decided to try my hand at the poor man's macro. I have tried it once before with some flowers I bought, but I was not impressed. Maybe it is because I do not really know flowers. But, I do know yarn! Here is the reverse side of the ballet sweater I am working on in macro. I love how the little stray strands catch the light and almost glitter! 


Something exciting happened today!  Thank you all so much for your comments and encouragement on yesterday's post.  I really was feeling blue and uninspired and tired.  I know we all have gone through it, so all I really needed was to go on here and look at all of your fantastic blogs for a little pick me up.  It helped, along with your comments.  But, something else happened.  Over at 365project, yesterday's photo of Olivia's shoes made the popular page!  I know it seems like such a trivial thing to be excited about, but if you saw the caliber of photos that make the popular page, you would understand why I am so thrilled.  I look at that page daily for inspiration and am always in awe.  To have people like my photo that much (a photo that I was not feeling great about) that it made the popular page, well it really lifted my spirits at the most perfect time.
