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.

They are beautiful Wendy! I’ve been collecting seaglass for a while and started wire wrapping some. I’d love to add bevel edges like that but it costs a bit to get all the equipment together.

Was it a fun course?

Yes, it was. There were a few points where everything thought it wasn’t going to happen with their pieces, but we all got there in the end!

M made a double pendant but I always wanted earrings. We were there nearly 3.5 hours.

God, no! :lol: Don't get me wrong, I've loved the course, the tutors, my fellow classmates, the art, the sewing, the pattern-cutting ... But, as the shop became busier and busier during the various lockdowns, I've really struggled to keep up with the coursework, while keeping the business on track. I couldn't go through all that again.

Right now, I'm designing some wall-hangings for the restaurant across the road and I'm looking forward to making a few clothes for me! :))

Only the black poncho top is finished. Everything else needs hemming and/or fitting when the girls are back.

That’s paperbag trousers and a top for me, a dress for Sproglette, a sheer poncho to wear over a black vest for me, and a top for Elvis. Her paperbag skirt has pockets made from the mustard double gauze, so I did pink binding. I don’t know if she’ll wear as a set yet though.

I love that poncho top fabric, Wendy. And your earrings, I am going to look out for a course like that, I would love to do one.

Wow. I cannot conceive of how much you manage to sew, wendy! I'm going to get going this Saturday, I have a top to finish and ideally a dress to make for my pal's wedding. It's leopard print: I'm nothing if not predictable. :mrgreen:

I know ... I'm always in awe of how much sewing you do, Wendy. Puts me to shame. At least I should have a little more time now.

Something a bit different from me, today. I made these wall hangings for our local restaurant. The owners are friends, otherwise it's not the sort of thing I would normally do. I copied the designs from a lovely book of 'Celtic ornament' and ironed them onto the background with Bondaweb. I'm quite pleased with how they turned out. :))

Those look great!
It’s like a normal midlife crisis only with more chandeliers and foreign languages.

I have to do *something* with the fabric I buy, and all the remnants and scraps!

Today Elvis got a muscle top and Sproglette a play suit. Plus I finished off a load of scrunchies.

They look fab OTH.
