Numbers updated

I have been adding to my Apple Numbers sheets to include a labor tracking sheet and a notes sheet. 
So now I have:

 1 Basic cover sheet

 • This sheet has pictures from concept to completion.  

 • Activity section that shows, 

concept date and time,

Crochet time,  

felting time, 

finishing project time

2 Supplies/price sheet

 • This sheet shows the items used in the making of project. It is broken down of items used. Like:

wool yarns, 

non wool yarns

accoutrements used.

 • It includes: 

description of item, 

count of items used,

 cost/retail price,

 then have it automatically add price and quantity.

 • Including totals

 3 Labor sheet

 • This is a time tracker and hourly wage for the project

 4 Notes sheet

  • This sheet gives me the chance to see what worked and what did not work on this project, such as:

type of wool used, 

crochet stitch used, 

how it was felted, 

use to non felted yarns and how it changed the felting process.

I think this covers all the needs to cover the beginning to completion sheets.

Evernote

I have been using Evernote since 2012 and in the beginning I just used it as storage for things, kind of like a storage locker but recently I have started to utilize it for my felting and crocheting as well as my everyday life. 

I admit I have been on Pinterest looking for any tips and tricks that will help me use it better and I have found a few. Mostly reorganizing and using the stacking process more.

One thing I would like them to add is the “web clipper” for apple devices.

The making of a neck piece.

Here are the visual steps to how I get to the felted part of the design Sorry to say, out of order a little

5/16/2017 – started embellishing the piece.

5/19/2017 – embellishments beginning to take shape.

05/20/2017 – added neck chain and beads. Cut out red beads.

Measuring up?

I was trying to show size on my pieces and not liking a yard stick that has a distracting color to my piece so my solution was to take a piece of foam core that I marked inches on the side and inches across the bottom.

Here is an example of it. Not too professional looking yet but it gets the size visually. Oh! I just had thought. I think there is quilters tapes that are in measurements maybe if they have white I might try it.
