Finished this up at about 5AM because I couldn't sleep.


It's Shadowmere, the horse your character can get from Lucien Lachance in TES IV: Oblivion. I figured I would make him for my Dunmer doll while I'm waiting to get to the craft shop to pic up a needle to root her hair.

For more pics go here.

Minimum, I thought the hearts were 8 to 10 inches high. Wow, that's big. Did you soak the willows in water first?

FreakieGeekie, it's hard to imagine the Barbie horse it once was. Good job altering it to your taste. And now, I wonder about Oblivion. Is it a book, a movie, a game?

Yoopidou, Oblivion is part four of The Elder Scrolls and is a videogame. It's a sandbox RPG and is VERY addictive. I've been known to get lost in it for hours on end.
Glad you like my Shadowmere :3

This isn't too exciting but it is something I wanted to make since January. We are writing down everything good that happens in 2013 and on New Year's Eve, over dinner we are going to read all the good things that happen to us throughout the year. I think I want to add some glitter to the girl on the jar.



Also, I made a quick garland for our mantle. I had all the green pottery and books  so not too much work.  Cheesy

Thanx guys - I really had fun with the willow weaving!

The tutor supplied the willow. Apparently preparing it is an artform in itself! She had the willow wands wrapped in wet cloths, but they are soaked before that and if they dry out while you are working them (for instance if you pull a handful out, then stop and have a cuppa) they loose the flexibility and are no good.

Size wise I just measured them and they are nearer 20" than 30" Embarrassed. It is actually easier to work bigger as the willow doesn't want to flex into small shapes, and kinks which isn't good, apparently.

Love the 'Good Times' glass - hope it is full to overflowing by the end of the year Cheesy
