71  Dozens of Birthday Cards in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Antidigger on: January 22, 2012 04:28:12 AM
In preparation for the onslaught of birthdays that start in February (at one point I have 18 friends/family that have birthdays in a 2 week period!) I've made a whole bunch of cards.





There were half a dozen left from last year, so not all of them have been made this year. The cardstock is recycled card, purchased from a stationers. The rest of the toppers are from more directly recycled items and gifts or swaps. There are a lot of people out there who save their chocolate wrappers for me!

I think my favourites are the disguised dinosaurs (which glow in the dark!) green on green on green.

Well, I've been promising a mathematician friend for ages I'd knit him a mathematical shape, so with the themes this month including white, I managed a round-to-it, and finally did it.
This is my hyperbolic plane

It's made of a scrap of dishcloth cotton I had left over, so it could be useful too.


Pictures for stripes will come later (once received) and for my "for me", I've sewn up a T shirt tote bag: It's enormous! I can't put heavy things in it: it weights too much to carry when it's full! No piccys I'm afraid, but it's already seen plenty of use.

73  80 Christmas cards (but not 80 photos!) in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Antidigger on: December 14, 2011 12:59:19 PM
Every year I recycle my Christmas cards into: more Christmas cards!

I buy envelopes, card stock, glue and some drawing pens, everything else is rescued from the recycling bin or has been given to me. This would be about a quarter of this year's stock.

A little while later and....

Joseph and Mary are a little closer to Bethlehem and the star is greeting them.


Meanwhile the magi have noticed the star and one of them has dropped his star map in astonishment.


The shepherds aren't pictured, cos really, all they are concerned with is the sheep, they have barely noticed the star.

75  Poor Godchildren, victims of my experiment in Knitting: Completed Projects by Antidigger on: December 09, 2011 02:58:21 AM
They have been knitted for. I used to dread being knitted for as a child, but I hope these will go down OK, I've worked hard on getting them right for their personalities. If they don't like them, I just won't do it again.

This is for my godson aged 5. I'm hoping it's both boyish enough and bright enough that he'll like it. I know he'll love the pattern, that way it wiggles too and fro. It's also long enough that he won't grow out of it for a while. And acrylic so it's easily washable, just chuck it in the washing machine with all the other stuff.


These are for my godaughter aged 6. She's a girly girl so I know the sequins will be a hit. At least to start with. If she finds them scratchy later, they can be taken off. Again it's acrylic so it's washable, but this one is amazingly soft and fluffy. It was made from a kit, that supposedly taught you how to knit. Angry Possibly the instructions were written in cantonese, translated via babelfish into congolese (is that a language?) and then again into english, or a very rough approximation thereof. Fortunately I could already knit basic stuff and I am adept at making things up if the pattern is gobbledygook. Or stops abruptly before the end.

76  Wonderful chenille yarn, dreadful knitting. in Knitting: Completed Projects by Antidigger on: December 08, 2011 02:28:14 AM
This stuff is beautiful and feels gorgeous. It's awfully stiff to knit.

First I used it to learn how to cable with these:

They'll be given away a a Christmas gift.

Then I deliberately made this as a gift, the colours really go well with the recipient and she's always cold, so I lined it with fleece to make it completely toasty.

77  Paper coasters? That couldn't possibly last. in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Antidigger on: December 07, 2011 06:49:22 AM
I made my friends some coasters out of our favourite magazine: New scientist!



inspired by this thread http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=232043.0  I made each circle using PVA, hot glued them to make the coaster (I placed random sized circles in a 10x10 cm square til I liked it and my mug didn't fall over) then finally coated them all with a PVA/water mix for fluid resistance.

78  Food coasters in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Antidigger on: December 07, 2011 06:42:05 AM
I didn't do a great deal to these, I just found the tiles going cheaply in a DIY warehouse and glued some thick fleece to the back to protect the tables. I thought they'd be great for a good sized mug, or they can be put together for larger dishes.

79  Tardishcloth in Knitting: Completed Projects by Antidigger on: December 07, 2011 06:39:25 AM
I knitted my friend a tardishcloth, but it looked a little bland all in white, so I used fabric dye pastels to add a bit of colour. It brightens it up a little and it's good enough for a cleaning cloth at least. Then I found a tiny knitted K9 at a craft fair: doesn't it go perfectly?

80  A story in pictures and polymer clay. in Winter Holidays by Antidigger on: December 07, 2011 06:32:23 AM
I thought I'd show the way my nativity evolves this year, especially as I'm in a new house and have 2 windowsills to play with. Please forgive the appalling pictures, but I haven't learned how to photograph through double glazing without getting that dreadful double effect.

Firstly: Mary and Joseph have a long way to go...

Whilst the shepherds don't even know to look on yet. (the other half of the first window)


Meanwhile in some other exotic part of the world wise men look at the stars (or at least they do when it's night time) and discuss their meanings


The polymer clay set have been made by one of my friends and my husband every now and again I get a little extra to add in: the latest addition were the sheep. The little Bethlehem was given to me as a gift one Christmas, made by a local craftsman. I'm hoping for a donkey or an angel this year.
