1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Bamboo planter pots on: April 05, 2014 12:20:48 AM

 I have 3 lucky bamboo in my kitchen and wanted to make a set of tall planter pots for them with water slide decals.

These are hand build Raku, 2 were covered in earthernware slip, not to self the 2 bodies don't mesh so well, the 3rd I painted with a white glaze only.

The images were applied as water slide decals.

I love the way they turned out.
2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Challenge: Man on Fire aka The burning man on: July 09, 2012 05:02:25 PM
I made this one up. It is a photo of my hubby that I spent hours photo shopping to resemble the BURNING MAN.

I loved the idea of the Burning man the freedom it represents.
We don't have anything like it in Australia.

I hope you like it as much as me. My favourite parts is his fire wings.

3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Wall pieces on: June 14, 2012 03:54:47 AM
I have just finished my course in ceramics and these are the wall piece I made. The theme was shoreline.
and it was more difficult than one could imagine until you broke it down into smaller things, like what you would find on the shoreline.

I really LOVE trees so they featured high on my list of things to make.
These are my wind chimes

My starry night candle sconce

my wall mangrove flats hanging

My Lit up tree on tree. This ones has solar lights and hangs on the wall.

I really loved this bowl/plate.

4  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / 1 Angel FOUND for the stuffed toy with a pattern swap on: April 07, 2012 06:06:02 PM
I need and Angel for    
Stuffed Animal Swap w/a Pattern  swap preferably in the UK for ease of postage,.


Angel is for ebygomm she lives in the UK

She Likes Owls, dinosaurs, dragons, rabbits but not to keen on Fairies, supernatural etc.

She has no allergies.

This was her first swap and the parcel and then her Partner went missing so I would love to see a really awesome parcel for her. you would have 2 weeks to make and send.

Details of swap:

This is how we are going to do this swap.  You make a stuffed animal or a doll and send your partner both the stuffed animal or doll and the pattern you made the stuffed animal or doll from.  Size ranges from: "7-12".  I am going to consider this a medium swap based on the sizes given.    Patterns must be originals, not copies.  All manor of toy making is acceptable.  You can join if you: knit, crochet, sew, or make sock animals.  Also, I have been advised of this: Just be careful about copyright infringements.  If it's a free pattern posted on the internet, you could include the link, unless the designer gives permission to make copies.  Not all of them do.  If it's a pattern you purchased, you can include the original pattern.  Also be careful about copying patterns from magazines and publications.  The same would be true here.  I think that you can give the name and date of the publication where you got the pattern from, unless you want to send the original page(s) of the pattern or the whole magazine or book.  Just some suggestions to keep above the law.  You can draft a pattern too if you like.

6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / wicca flags on: June 20, 2011 04:21:55 AM
I digitised these design based loosely around a set that a swap partner had on her wist.

I really like the designs but would never use them for myself. I would for a swap partner though cause they look great.

I tried to correspond each color with the design and the backing.

7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Angel protection on: May 12, 2011 05:47:57 PM
I was inspired by the weeping angels that people made on here but I wanted a male angel.
here he is.

before he was started he looked like this.

He ended up like this

He is standing in a rock made from salt dough, and his shield is made from it also. BUT his sword broke so I asked mast.14 to design me one on a piece of timber, I think it looks awesome. I cut it out with a hacksaw and then used the bench grinder to neaten it up.
The whole piece was them sprayed with primer to look like stone.

I am very happy with the way it came together, it took 3 weeks all up as the salt clay took forever to dry.
I am making another one with a max steal doll this time.

8  COOKING / Dessert / Perfect birthday Pavlova on: January 27, 2011 02:07:30 AM
This was the first time I have made my own Pav.
I mean I cook just about everything and I adore Pav but this is the first time I have made my own.....it certainly won't be the last

First make your pav.

take 4 egg whites and beat till soft peak form.
gradualy add in, whilst beating, 1 cup castor sugar, make sure you do it slowly.
after about 10 - 15 mins rub a little mixture with your finger tips to see if the sugar has disolved.
Now fold in 1/2 tablespoon of cornflour and 1 teaspoon of white vinegar
The important thing here is to taste it and make sure it is good, but beware you may loose half you mixture as you continue to check the quality of the mixture.
place some greaseproof paper on a biscuit tray and damp it down, then spoon you mixture onto this in a circle shape. keep piling it up it will sit on top of itself quiet well.
 bake at 120 o celcius for 2 hours till nice and cruchny on the out side.
turn off oven and leave the tray in there over night.
next day

take the following ingredients

whipping cream, add vanilla topping ( or powder sugar and vanilla extract)
beat that baby till it forms soft peaks.

now spread it on top of your pav

next cut up your fav fruits

and arrange them on top of the cream.

and now you have the finished product, eat and enjoy.

9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / GIFT TAGS on: November 30, 2010 04:36:06 AM
I made some personalised gift tags.

You could use them for birthdays too.

or add some clip art and make them more christmasy.
I used word and made a set of labels, add a photo and some text.Print them out on normal paper and then cut them up.
Now laminate them. pop a hole on 1 corner and add some ribbon.
I also used some hat elastic so that you can pop it around the gift also.
I made them for all the family but these are mine and hubbies ones.

10  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Roses grow where they will on: October 17, 2010 05:14:41 AM
I have been planning this quilt for months.....been making it for months too.
with summer here I finally got it finished, I started it before winter.
*sigh* at lest next winter will be warm with it. Cheesy

I love roses and bought these embroidery designs to make this quilt with.
I did plan to stipple it but didn't like the way it can out along the edges so I left it at that.
I used a single bed quilt instead of batting in it.
next time I will use batting.

some of my fav blocks.....

and here it is on the couch
