I'm still in one of those moods where I just keep starting new things to see what will happen and end up ripping them out, which is always fun (with occasional hints of frustrating). Said mood/mode of creating stuff doesn't really loan itself to a WIP Wednesday post, sadly. I guess I could photograph all the skeins of yarn I've started and un-started things with?
My hat is sort of coming along, though:
I also started an interesting rectangular motif in two reds and black that may become part of my planned skull-scarf.
In non-fiber WIPs, I rediscovered the joy of Artist Trading Cards the other day. This is as good a place as any to explain my blog title, actually. It's part of a lyric from an Ani DiFranco song that goes they say goldfish have no memory / I guess their lives are much like mine / and the little plastic castle is a surprise every time. I've loved that since the moment I heard it in high school, and it actually describes part of the way my brain works---I'm pretty sure that I forget how much I like certain things (like painting or collaging or crocheting or all the shades of green that appear in springtime) on purpose so that I can be happily surprised by how wonderful they are all over again.
Swap-Bot, where I've been swapping stuff on and off for years now. One of them is for a heart-themed card, so I had fun painting a piece of the newspaper (the legal notices and pets for sale/adoption section, haha) in a quick rainbow gradient, and I'm going to use a heart paper punch to cut lots of hearts and then glue them together in overlapping layers. That's the plan, anyway.
