We need to think of a better word than “crochainting.”

Remember when I posted the sketch for my mom’s crochet painting?

Here’s the finished piece!



It came out a bit differently than I thought, but still cute, if I do say so myself! They are supposed to be little steamed buns or dumplings: bao bao! BaoBao is also my mom’s dog’s name. I hadn’t really planned on stuffing the dumplings/buns, but it just sort of happened. I had no idea how I wanted to execute the bamboo steamer when I first sketched it, and that proved to be kind of the most challenging part.

In related news, I was super duper happy that my Galactic Donuts sold last week! It’s the first crochet painting I’ve ever gotten money for! I actually have a new one coming up very very very soon. It was supposed to be for Valentine’s Day, but I didn’t have time to finish it. I am still knee-deep in all my bookkeeping and tax prep for 2011. Let’s not talk about that! :P

    I actually love the idea of a “chrochainting”! Because I don’t think I would use too much other crocheted stuff. This dumpling one is so cute!!

    This leads to inspiration for a ghost ‘painting’! ;)

    Aw, I loved the galactic donuts one you did, and was definitely wanting to buy it, but knew I’d not have the money anytime soon for it :( But I suppose I’m glad someone else will revel in it’s happiness aaaand that you’ve got some cash for your first one!
