Show your (craft)work

Incorporating hobbies, computer games, Verm's Interesting Links and anything else you can think of excluding football and other spectator sports because these belong in the Sport section, but allowing sports you play yourself with your own body as that counts as a pastime.

I did an online workshop and made these paper bluebells and snowdrops. It was very messy (glue everywhere!)but also fun.

Thank you - I'm looking forward to being able to buy some materials and try again in a less rushed way and hopefully make them look a bit more delicate. The artist who led the workshop is Su Blackwell, if anyone fancies having a look at her broader work - it's so lovely.

The paper flowers are beautiful, and you must be so neat-handed Baa! Very impressive.
It’s like a normal midlife crisis only with more chandeliers and foreign languages.

The flowers and the greenhouse are so intricate! Well done!

So the postbox hat has gone down well. It’s been posted twice on the local FB page (which led someone to identifying me), someone asked for the dimensions to make their own, someone else has asked if I’ll accept a commission to make one for her nearest postbox and the local charity committee messaged me to ask if I’ll be making anymore because they’ll consider them for the local charity calendar for 2022. :mog:

I'm not surprised Cerise, it's so lovely. I'd be chuffed to bits to spot one of those on my boring daily trudges.

How long do they take to make? Would you be up for doing a calendar's worth?

That’s brilliant Cerise!

I blasted through the pieces for my cardigan over a few days, so just the neck/button bands and making up to do. However, the yarn has removed all moisture from my fingers and I have actual cracks in my thumb/forefinger. :lol:

That’s brilliant Cerise! I wish we had a proper post box rather than one set into the wall. I would totally want to commission you to make one :))

My snood is a disaster. I've sewn up the ends and it barely fits over my head twice which was the plan. :mog:
I was going to do an edge border to try and neaten it up but honestly I can't be bothered now so I'm going to abandon it and start something else. :))
