My Corner Of The World - July 2010

(click picture for larger image)

My mother in law has a bird feeder on her patio and it recently started attracting this colorful guy. I think it's called American Goldfinch. The bird is a little bigger than a sparrow. My niece Maggie parked herself in a chair and waited to take pictures of this bird. She had this picture as wallpaper on her computer and I asked her to send me a copy. My MIL lives in Gold River Calif, just outside Sacramento, Calif.

While surfing the internet, I look for patterns that might work for weaving. This a pattern I created using a tessellation generator found at this website.

It took a very short time and I think I could make some very nice patterns with more thinking about it.

I found this tessellation technique referenced on this website article
"Designing Tesselating Knitting Patterns"

I like looking in on Craftzine to see what crafters are up to.

Have a good day!
