Beaded Temperature Project: January 2017

Here is the other temperature project I am doing, using a bead a day. Most fun was sorting out my bead box and deciding on the colour and increments. No idea what this may lead to. Maybe 12 pieces of jewellery by the end of the year? #temperatureproject20

I have 2 running projects for my #TemperatureProject2017: fabric weaving and beads.

Beads, because I have a box full of beads from the past taunting me, and my goal is to de-clutter, working with what I have. The fun bit was sorting out the beads and assigning the temperature gradient.

12 necklaces for 12 bags. How matchy-matchy.

Weather Pattern a.k.a. Temperature Project. January 2017 — Wabisabi Geeky Woven Bag

TEMP TOTE Jan2017 (3)

Late last year, Friend Sue planted this crafty seed in my head: create something according to the daily temperature, inspired by the ‘Temperature Blanket’ crochet or knitted projects that have made their presence on the interweb.

The inner geek and stash-busting crafter in me accepted the challenge. Boom! Done. We have our daily maximum recorded temperature data* for all 31 days of January 2017 presented on this wabisabi weaving.

I have decided to make this project more bite-sized and relevant to my style and work since large projects such as blankets, quilts and scarves aren’t my cup of tea…

Behold Miss January 2017. 1st Jan begins at the top.

Onward to 11 more bags!

That was January 2017. #temperatureproject2017
