Here are some photos of the present I made for my friend's birthday, I mentioned this in another thread but couldn't post piccys in case she saw but she collected it tonight so its fine now...

I commissioned the vase from a woodturner I know (and sleep with) LOL!!

I spent a long time working out what I wanted to make and then even longer making it... she seemed to like it very much and has given me some fantastic ideas of how I can take these little stamens further...



These are the stamens which are in the centre of each flower...there are 11 flowers in the vase




I'd be really interested in reading your opinions please...

I've been thinking for ages of applying to do a 3 year degree in applied arts at the local university, I've always thought that if I did apply I would like to show them a portfolio of my work.

I've been thinking of making this up for a long time now but finally did it yesterday:

Following this thread: http://www.frit-happens.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=11379.0 I ordered myself some plain totes and iron-on transfers, and this morning I made my own (thanks for the tip, Mary  Kiss):

For those of you who thinks this is a bit of fun, here's where I got the totes and transfers from(very quick delivery from both):

T-shirt transfers from here: https://www.craftycomputerpaper.co.uk/

This is the one I bought, I wanted the long handles and the gusset - it's fairly light-weight - I'll just have to make another when I'v worn it out Grin:

I did post some of these last year, but they're different every year, so may I present...our East German/Polish family tradition of painting eggs with wax before batiking them Smiley These are the best of this year's crop - Happy Easter, everybody!



PS: The squiggly one on the right is a collaboration between Toby, Daddy and me (Daddy held the egg, Toby held the pencil with the pin (that gets dunked into wax), and I held Toby (wax = hot!)







....and show us your eggs, if you've got any, too!

I coulden't get it quite round although that might not matter if someone was putting beads all around it?

I do struggle with these, need more practice I guess.

I find it difficult around the edges to make the shape round or oval.
The first one (round) I started with a blob in the middle. That didn't work. No photo.
The second (oval) I started with first round the edges and then fill in the rest. This is made with Pandora (terrible glass to take a photo)

I was getting dressed this morning when I realised that I didn't have anything summery in my wardrobe. So I thought I would make something to wear...

It took me a couple of hours to make it as I needed to unpick it a few times and the smocking around the top was a nightmare but I think it came out OK. I am happily wearing it now and feel really chuffed as this was only the 3rd piece of clothing I have ever made.. after two very basic skirts!  Grin

Sorry some of them are a bit bigger than the forum likes, but I think they are better viewed a wee bit bigger :O)

I do love messing with my camera Cheesy

I have just repainted my workshop and the walls were looking a bit bare. I'm still waiting to have enough spare cash to make up some posters professionally but in the meantime I made up a couple of my own which I printed off and have hung on the wall.

I know these arn't everyones cup of tea but I quite like them:

I haven't been around for a while as I've struggled over the last few months with a missing (jewellery making) mojo. I'd sit with my pieces and many beautiful beads and couldn't make a thing v. scary and upsetting. I decided that I'd stop for a while and give myself a break before I ended up a blithering wreck but my fingers were itching to do something so I 'borrowed' a sewing machine and thought I'd have a bash at a bag for my daughters birthday and have got a little carried away........



This is part of a cunning plan as I have some modern beach bags ready  and I'm going to use lampies as bag charms to open the door for my mojo's return  Wink
At the very least I have a selection of bags as xmas/birthday pressies  Smiley
