11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / My First Charm Bracelet on: April 06, 2015 05:23:54 PM

I won a charm bracelet making kit from mistress Jennie in they Harry potter craftalong (yhea yhea, blatant plug), which I used to put together this piece, I'm super proud of it add I've never done anything lower it before :-D
Jennie and I had discussed what charms and colours I'd like, I picked a theme based around the website mg friends and I met on (book crossing) since she always admired my own Jennie original bracelet so I knew she'd love her own (slightly knock off...) version. So really all I had to do was plan the layout of the charms and beads Jennie sent and assemble them - I especially enjoyed making up the bead pins and wrapping the wire around to attach them! I suspect my local bead shop might have find a new customer...
Thanks for looking! Cheesy

13  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / lots of loom knitted bed socks (picture gluttenous) on: February 02, 2015 04:51:27 PM
I got a bit addicted to the colours of noro wool... And realised they make super cosy  little bed socks! Just about everyone i know has a pair now  Cheesy they're all made on 32 peg loom, the perfect craft for chilling out and just unthinking, calm medative making, watching the colours flow out











14  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / a pile of hoops on: February 02, 2015 04:21:53 PM
Found some old photos... Thought I'd share this bunch!



Stem stitch logo for a free book table at a local festival

I have no idea what this symbol is, except out means fire, it was a gift done on request, so i decided on a flame colour series of French knots

Thanks for looking  Smiley
15  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Entralac turban - winter + summer editions on: February 02, 2015 05:15:06 AM


I used this pattern http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/grey-gardens-2
though I found I had to go down a few needle sizes to get a reasonable size,  it's a really fun knit,  easy enough but short  rows and you see lots of progress.

The above uses Fyberspates Vivacious dk merino yarn,  and the winter version below uses 2 stands; one cream alpaca,  and one grey Finnsheep wool that I picked up on holiday



One big change I made to the winter version is the back; instead of mattress stitching two ends together I made a few extra teirs to add an overlap that buttons up,  which I think is prettier since my sewing up is pretty awful!

16  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Does it need a bigger pompom?? baby hat on: January 22, 2015 07:10:35 PM


A pretty simple baby hat (well, you'd think, but how  many times did I forget to purl into the back of the stitch in that rib section! Path!)... but I am plagued by the knitter's dilemma; does it need a bigger pompom?

Answers on a postcard...
17  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / punk art doll pin cushion on: January 03, 2015 12:40:49 PM


At a hack festival, a friend challenged me to make a birthday gift for his pal's upcoming party. i had taken my then-current project, so had a sewing kit and a few scraps of fabric to use, but everything had to be scrounged/found ... Someone donated a beaded earring to deconstruct, the kitchens gave us some wire wool to stuff her with (making a pin cushion, since the recipient is a textile artist)... She's far from perfect, but given the circumstances i thought she came out ok!

19  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / festival banners on: January 03, 2015 11:25:49 AM


My friend and i painted the entrance way banners for a festival we helped organise. I did the upwards hand and the top, she did the initial design and the downwards hand. She drew out the images on a4 paper, then we scaled them up just by eye using the grid method, sketched out in pen then went over in paint with brushes & rollers. I think they came our pretty good, though i wish we had known that the road sign would be there!
