1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Didgeridoo on: January 11, 2008 11:17:22 AM
First of all, if you don't know what didgeridoo is: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Didgeridoo
Basically it's a long, wooden pipe that resonates your sound when you blow air through it. It's an old musical instrument from Australian Aboriginal people.

After a long crafting hiatus I can proudly present my new creation. I took a course in local adult education centre where we made didgeridoos from tree trunks. They had only been dried and the branches chopped off ready for the course. It took the whole autumn, but it was fun and absolutely worth it!

My wood of choice was birch, and I'll tell you, it's hard, hard wood to work with...! The paints were made of iron oxide pigments, wood glue and water. Ok, enough with talking.







Here's a close up of the bee wax mouth piece:


It's about 1,42 meters (4,7 feet) long. I haven't learned to play it yet, but I'm getting there. Smiley Practice, practice...
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Happy Tree Friends swap? on: August 18, 2006 01:54:37 AM
How many here watch Happy Tree Friends? I love how it's cute and cruel at the same time.

I can't organize and I'm having one swap at the moment, but I'm just throwing an idea. Smiley
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Toe sock Cthulhu (img heavy) on: July 21, 2006 03:42:20 PM
Yes, I have brought to live the most terrible monster of them all - Cthulhu! Don't blame me, the toe socks were too tempting to resist...

Cthulhu: "Ahh at last I'm awake from the sleep in R'lyeh. Now I can go and destroy the whole mankind! Hahaha!"

Yesa: "Oh no you won't mister! You get back..."

Yesa: "...right here where you belong. Say hi to Helbert!"
Helbert: "Splendid! A new socky friend!"
Cthulhu: "&#@$%...!!!!"

If this all was one big nonsense to you, check this link for more info about Cthulhu.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / First dress ever! on: July 10, 2006 11:43:43 AM
I made a dress for myself to wear at my friends' weddings last saturday. It was really hot day, about +30 degrees celsius (86 fahrenheit). The dress was made from my own pattern using Lamby's great and easy tutorial! I also made a matching simple purse and crochetted a scarf (not showing in the pictures).



This is also my first posted project so I hope I did everything right Smiley
