Hello all!

Newbie alert....

Only on this forum. I followed a link from one of my art groups on FB and ended up here, so I decided to join and learn something new. You really can teach an old dog new tricks!

Last year I spent the entire year doing crochet, I crocheted a granny square a day as well as a few blankets for friends of the family who were producing offspring. At the end of the year I looked back and said "Gee! I have all these granny squares with nothing to do with them and I REALLY miss Art!" So this year is ALL.ABOUT.ART! Art, painting, drawing, mixed media, I am trying it all, yes, even so far unsucessfully, Water colour!

So I am a Wife, a Mother of five and Grandma of well, by December it'll be 6 and so it's a busy life, art is the one thing tht quietens my mind and helps keep me a bit sane! Plus my Grandchildren join in occasionally and that cant be a bad thing!

Happy to meet you all, say G'day!

Re: Hello all!

Hi, nice to meet you. I have so many granny squares! One of these days, I'll sit down and piece them together...maybe.

Glad you joined, there are forums here for pretty much everything (including crochet!). Enjoy the forums and be sure to check out the Member FAQ’s for help navigating the forums, posting, inserting images and more. Let us know if you need any help.

Re: Hello all!

Welcome to wetcanvas Kim.

My wife Ruth (Stitcher) is a avid crochet artist. See this thread for the novel way she crochets a granny square with a pocket which can be folded ito a cusion.

his is a terrific community and a wonderful resource, and you will find forums for just about every art and craft medium here, it's worth exploring the full list of the forums. Read the posting rules at the top of the forums there may be restricted posting.

The links in the top line of my signature will help with the forum and how to resize and post your pictures. You can start uploading pictures on your third post.

When you get the uploader box and browse for your photos, make sure you select "All files" or you will not see your jpg files.

If you have a particular site problem, click on my name and send me a private message (pm).

As you work in watercolors I suggest you check out the Watercolor Forum The links in my signature will take you to lots of watercolour demos, workshops, articles, videos and free on-line tutorials.

There are many talented and generous artists in the forum who will love to share your art.

Introduce yourself in the "Daily Wash" in the Palette Talk forum - they are a great bunch of folks.

I look forward to seeing some of your work in the Watercolor Gallery, or in the Watercolor Studio if you need advice. Technical questions are asked in the Learning Zone.
