I've finished quite alot of the Mycology bag. I added a pocket whilst watching the Golden Compas with M on Monday night. It was only afterwards that I noticed that I'd put the pocket on the wrong side. See that ugly seem at the top right hand side? I really wanted that to be the back. Maybe I'll add the handle and the decorative ribbons wound through those holes and see if I can still notice it. As I put this down to photograph, Pippin laid down next to it and stretched out her paws to grab it - it looks like she's trying to nick it! This may still end up as the back. It'll just be a back pocket.
I also crocheted a pop top mushie - did I show you this already? I can't remember now. Still, it's all sewn together and stuffed. I just need to sew the buttons on it.
Remember the thick enamelled wire that I bought from the electronics shop at the weekend? I made this with it. I just wire wrapped some random crystal beads on it. They're much more twinkley in real life.
I finished a couple of OWS packages this week too. I claimed nofury for a business card holder and made her this from felt, with some vintage lace and some leaves appliqued on it.
Here it is laid out. I like the vintage lace with the beads. I think it looks like white tree blossom.
Here's the inside. Hopefully it'll serve it's purpose for her.
I also sent this domino pendant - finished at last.
And I claimed Witcheybelle again for some tree art. This is what I came up with. I used technical drawing pen and watercolour pencils, with a bit of gold ink brushed on the branches.
I wonder if she'll notice the treebeard like face on the trunk? I was actually a little reluctant to see this go, but I hope Wondra will like it. I also sent her a whimsey jar, but I forgot to take a photograph before I sent it. Silly me!
My current OWS WIP is some animal pantas for Dragonsmuse. This one will be a black kitty. I've been toying with the idea of making one of these for myself, so I'll be seeing how it turns out!
I finished the polyclay pendant I'd been working on. The experimental one? It seems that you can drill through polyclay and domino. I added a bail, varnished it with aging varnish and added some acrylic jewels.
When I get a few minutes to play with my new soldering iron, probably at the weekend now, I'll be edging this to make a pendant with. It's a glass fossil pebble that a friend made for me years ago. I used it like a worry stone for a bit and then, as things tend to do, it sat in a drawer for ages. I came across it the other day and decided that it would make a wonderful pendant. I've edged it in copper foil tape and it's ready to go.
I have one day left this week and then it's the weekend again. I hope the weather stays like this! The Hound even got an evening walk to rabbit field! I have a doggy ice lolly freezing for him in the freezer for the weekend, so he'll be keeping his paws crossed for nice weather too!
