If you remember I had been making this.
Well, just look at it now......
I love it, and it has a place on my sewing room wall ...what an honour!! (usually only swaps received go on the wall).
The other little bit that kept me quiet for a while was this little block
Some of us at the Monday group are making a Christmas wall hanging and this is Ellen's wreath block. Its will end up a 6" block, Ellen decided to use 'Yo Yo's so this was another small project for me to sit and play at.
NOW talk about play....... I have been looking at flickr to see what is going on and there is a pincushion swap just beginning. However, I am not joining any swaps for a bit but I love to follow them, and someone put up a picture of some 'pin toppers'....... do I need an invitation to do research on these beauties OH NO!!!!..... After reading what the ladies had to say about different clays I started scouring Amazon to see what they had to offer, and 'lo and behold' they sold a sample pack of 12 different pastel colours. So no time was spent thinking about it, I ordered and yesterday my pack turned up. Yeah!!! I was so excited and started to follow this tut. but in my haste I did not check the oven temperature correctly (I didn't think anyone used Fahrenheit anymore) so instead of 230 deg F I put the oven on at 230 deg,C. The smell in the kitchen told me something was not quite right, and this is my sorry lot that emerged.
|Should have been 130 deg. C|
Will I be beaten....... this is my second attempt
Cute aren't they. Goodness knows how many will be made and what I will do with them, but once again I will be kept out of mischief for a few more hours.
