I have accomplished a few crafty things in the last few weeks,
just haven't had much chance to post cuz Honey has recently
found a "Snow Machine Forum".
Alot of chatting about and photos of snow machine
(or in most parts of the country - snowmobile) adventures.
So he has been spending a bit more time on the computer
than he used to, which means I spend less☺
The good part - more crafty accomplishments.
The bad part - less show and tell.
I was really getting in a funk about winter and I was crocheting
neckwarmers and wristwarmers like mad,
so I decided maybe I should stop the winter wear for a while
and think summer.
I found this pattern for a summer "Straw Hat" and knew it would
be perfect for my sister. She loved it so much she sent me a picture☺
Isn't she cute? I want her hair.
I also found a pattern for a bag that looked cool
First let me say, I didn't think it would be so hard to take a picture of a bag.
This was my experiment so I followed the pattern exactly except I didn't
add a zipper. I love the body and the flap (except my next one will not be as wide)
but I don't know how I feel about the handle. I think I will do something different
next time with the handle.
And I have been practicing with resin, not the fancy UV resin that
a lot of people are working with now, just the regular epoxy resin
like you get at the hardware store.
It's kinda fun and I definately like the way it looks on polymer.
Some pendants waiting for bails
(Can you guess how I did the pictures on the pendants?)
And a couple of finished pieces.
I made the hearts to mimic the ceramic beads.
With the resin, I think it works.
Have a great weekend!
