Grey Day/Game Day Gradient

Hey all,
How's your weekend going? It's been pretty mellow for me. Visited my mum for tea yesterday. Watched a horror movie that wasn't scary :P Today I got up bright and early, hiked to the grocery and got everything for the beef stew I'm making soon. I love stew. It's so easy and satisfying.
As a reward for my efforts I started on a new manicure as soon as I got home. I kept thinking 'gradient' since I love them so much and it's been awhile since I've sponged. And since it's a game day, Vancouver Canucks colours, blue and green, were calling to me.
(Go nucks Go!)

I tried doing a sideways gradient this time since I only ever do top to bottoms. 
It turned out much snazzier that I expected. What do you think?

I used China Gaze - Unpredictable and Essie - Aruba Blue
Unpredictable is an amazing green/gold/blue douchrome which just pops against the royal blue shimmer of Aruba Blue. 
I fell in love with both of these colours the first time I ever set eyes on them. 
I really need to utilize them more often. I feel like I've neglected them. ha!


I really love the manicure. What do you think?
But I'm torn. Should I add to it?
I've looked over my stamping plates and nothing's calling to me. I don't want to ruin it by over doing it. 
What do you think? Any ideas?
I'm going to leave it be unless I hear a good suggestion. :)

Let's Spin a Yarn...

I finally received my shipment from WEBS Yarn! Here's Kit snuggling it.

Painted Desert. 100% wool. My favorite colour shift, green to purple <3

I bought this thinking I was almost done my pullover. But, of course, I realized the pullover had to be re-made. Argh! So I'll be waiting quite a while to get my hands working on this lovely wool. Probably in the summer. So stay tuned!


No matter what I'm feeling, it always comes back to Fiona.
She has such a knack for saying exactly what I feel.
Here's an awesome live performance of Daredevil.
Check out the percussion she performs towards the very end. Her face is so full of intensity.

I can smell my stew slow cooking :) I'm getting hyped for the game and getting very hungry. Going to spend the next hour speed crocheting! I have a little something planned with Dagadelic later this week, a special outing/ inspiration. 
You can expect to hear all about it Friday!
Until then I hope everyone has a great week and an awesome manicure!

  1. Love the colour combo! Keep it as is. I don't think it needs anything.

    Sidenote: you're going to laugh when you see my post.
