1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Goose and Flamingo... on: June 10, 2009 07:31:42 AM
I made these for my sister (whose nick name is goose) and for one of my closest friends (we are friends for life like flamingos!!)!!

I've never used polymer clay before and haven't glazed/varnished them yet, because i wouldn't know what to use!!

I hope you like them!

Apologies for the PhotoBooth pics!!

2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Poor unwanted stash buster Ray... on: February 09, 2009 02:19:23 AM
I started this poor manta ray for my man, right before my he decided that we were to just be friends, so the Ray is staying on my couch til he finds another home...

'Scuse my messy hair in the pic! (bit stressed of late!!)

Big thanks to Roman Sock for the best blog in history!!

Since he can't stay at mine, as good natured as he is, not to mention he listens to all my problems and gives sound advice, i'll be sending him away in a care package for Victoria's bush fire victims.

C&C welcome.

-Lady Fiasco.


As a little side note, monetary donations to help victims of the bushfire can be made here...
select "Victorian Bushfire Appeal 2009" in the first drop box
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / just a small word of thanks... on: December 08, 2008 08:13:32 AM
... to the Craftster Crochet Crew.
 Honestly, i've been trawling the web looking at every crochet site and forum i could find and they were all... well, dated and bland.

Craftster Crochet Crew are easily the greatest in the world!
Good looking!

Thanks everyone!
Thanks Lothruin and antarcticraft for moderating!
4  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / insomnia wall drawing on: November 28, 2008 03:22:08 AM
So, when i can't sleep i create.
Usually on my sewing machine, but instead the other night i drew on some lining fabric i'd blu-tacked to the wall of my lounge.

her arms aren't as lopsided as they seem, the fabric has heaps of movement.

Comment if you like, but there's not much to say.
(Please excuse my scraps bag in the bottom of the pic)
Thanks for looking.
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Stash-buster memo board on: November 21, 2008 01:28:46 AM
So i attempted to clean out my stash today...
and i 'spose since i used some stuff from it i kinda did... right?
back me up here!!!

The fabric was an old sheet from a thrift store, cost me $1AU (thats about $40US at the moment right?lol!)
Old IKEA cork board, poly fill, stash ribbon and it's all held together with hot glue.

I used poly fill cuz i like em real squishy!

I poked 2 hole through the cork board and have buttons holding the ribbon bows on.

and a pocket, cuz i like them too!!

Hope you didn't find this too boring!!

Feel free to comment if you haven't used up all your memo board quips on the billion other memo board post here! Cheesy Wink
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Not my garden... OUR garden! (massive post w/ tonnes of leafy green veggie pics) on: November 17, 2008 04:22:40 AM
I was a little unsure where to post this, only because once we harvest the proceeds will be going to charity, but since we're still in the growing stage, i thought here was the most appropriate board!

Anyway, my bestie decided a while ago she wanted to create a community garden that grew veggies for charitable purposes, and i just get so excited by growing things, i couldn't help but share with everyone on here!!
It started as a long, skinny, weed infested patch of ground behind the local library...

The tree in the middle of the frame is actually an ancient lemon tree that we figure has been there since the dawn of time!

The weed clearing began...

The tree in this pic isn't the lemon tree. This tree is the one thats to the right of the frame in the top pic... does that make sense? Just to give you some scope of the size of land we have been kindly leant by the Prospect city council.

All cleaned up now!

The weed mat has worked a treat, considering what was all over this place when we first arrived!

We got beds! (and tiny sprouting plants)

In the bottom left corner are some onions my friend had already been cultivating!

More sprouting!

Right down the back you can just make out our trellis compost bin!

Now we have plants!!



Broccoli at the front and tomatoes up the back!

Better shot of the tomatoes!



Thats no all there is tho, we've got all sorts of herbs, garlic, capsicum, potatoes, onions and of course the ancient lemon tree!

oh and this is our gorgeous mascot Sproutling...

Check our myspace and facebook for more!

A big cheers goes out to The city of Prospect council, Eden Seeds and Wilsons' Organics, along with Adelaide Fresh and everyone else who helped us get this off the ground!!

7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Cute AND high waisted!! on: October 30, 2008 07:53:19 AM
So this was my first attempt at both zippers and gathering...
and darn it i think it looks pretty good!

Not so flattering for the old belly, but, i'll be wearing it with some towering stilletos, so no one will be looking at my belly anyway!  Cheesy

I left the edge of the black top layer raw, and just zig-zagged over it a bit to stop the fray, i didn't want it to look too finished... does that make sense?? and i still need to put in the little hook and eye at the end of the zip to hold it all together, but it's twenty past one am and that can wait til tomorrow!!

I ran some bias binding along the edge of the pink and white check underlayer, cuz i'm really not into hemming! so lazy!

and the gathers that i'd never done before either... turn out pretty good!

Well, thanks for looking!
(sorry that i waffled on a bit!)

comments and criticism always welcome!

8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Sexy box pleat skirt (cuz i got belly and butt!!) on: October 21, 2008 11:42:35 PM
So i needed something pretty to wear out on the weekend and i've had this DREAM SKIRT in my mind for weeks...

I couldn't find a pattern for it anywhere *tear* so i took the plunge and started with the pleats...

please excuse my trashed apartment in these pics!!  Embarrassed

I figured i could just construct the rest of the skirt around the pleats! And since it was super stretchy material, it left a bit of room for error!

The front...

and the back...

since there was no-one around to help me take photos, this is actually me wearing the skirt backwards...  Cheesy
I love the way it clings and then goes all fish tail like at the knee... i'll try get some better shots, if any one wants to see them!

It's my first completed clothing project, so any advice would be awesome!!

9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Sweet baby deer *newbies first project* on: October 03, 2008 09:58:38 AM
So, after lurking around on here for a few weeks, i got motivated to CREATE!!
Thanks guys!

I got this real easy pattern from www.sewingpatterns.org.uk and spent a couple of hours knocking it up, I think she turned out ok!!

Although her back legs go under her body just a little too much, so she ends up on her bottom if she's standing on a slippery surface! hahahaha!!

any feed back would be good!! Smiley

(especially if you can't get to the pics, this uploader thing doesn't seem to like me very much!)
