I made these to take to Germany with me - if any sell, munchkin will need a cut, since he painted the canvases - we had great fun!

Queen size quilt by dilunah, on Flickr

For those of you who quilt it's disappearing 9 patch with Moda French General fabric and it's not quite finished yet as I still have to hem all around the binding by hand but that'll have to wait until after the GBUK beadfair Smiley

It measures 90" x 98" so it's gonna take a while Shocked

I have a tiny kitchen with just the one (quite big) window. The window is south facing which is great! I love using fresh herbs but just didn'y feel I had the space. So I made a wooden frame with wire mesh over and hung a couple of flat backed planters from s hooks on that so I could get more in. Not so much creative as creative thinking. I'm chuffed to bits with it and it makes me smile every time I go into the kitchen  Grin

Ginko Leaves and lots of them.

   


I boil them all up in a mixture of water and caustic soda. This is a very smelly job requiring lots of ventilation. You don't want to inhale the fumes.

 

After separating out a few of the whole leaves I bleach the rest and beat it to a pulp. The pulp is added to a big bath of water ready to pull the first sheet of paper.



This sheet is a mixture of whole unbleached leaves and the bleached pulp.



I work sitting on the floor!



After I have made as much paper as I can it all goes into my press for a few days. I have to wait and be patient to see how it has turned out.

I won a fabulous prize in a raffle recently which was a day course to learn about bookbinding.  I had a brilliant day and made a hard back book, is it called case binding....? and a really nice small book using a simple stitching technique.  The cover was made from a scrap of leather that used to be a pair of leather trousers!

There is still a lot of moisture in the paper. every time I get it out it starts to curl up again. So I have been getting it out for a few hours and popping it back again!
I did take this photo of one of the pieces.

I've never made a wreath for aour door before.  My mil usually brings us one, then last year I bought one.  I kept all the bits and had a go at making my own this year.  We live opposite a wood which is rammed with holly and ivy etc... Its on the door at the moment, not sure how much of it will be intact when the wind picks up.... Wink

Whooo I  have been stuffing stitching and sighing  Grin hooked on making Heart Fabric garlands did you watch Kirsti's Christmas Crafts? she made a garland like this or similar. I had to do it. So here it is. My Christmas Garland ready to go over my Ingle nook I am not decorating no point just me...but WILL put this over my fire. It is quite addictive I had some nice Christmassy material left overs so will make another for my Mum's bedroom out the home. I don't suppose she will know it is Christmas but I will.
Pictures aren't that good as it is wide I couldn't find my panoramic settings will look later. When I am more composed.  Grin

I've made a few of these now, they're a bit of a labour of love as bending the wires takes its toll on your fingers! I made one for my Mum about 20 years ago and it's still going strong. I really hope that the pictures not too huge.  Smiley



Happy Christmas too you all.
