Current Craftiness

13 Jul

Over the past week I’ve had some time to play with last months Crafty Creatives Box 12 (you can view CCBox12 full contents in a previous post) and thought I would show you my makes.

This months kit was cross stitch, I loved crossed stitch when I was younger so this was a welcome reminiscent craft.

There were 4 pattens to choose from and I chose the cupcake, but added my own touches. I added a 3rd colour; pink, a border, some beads & a heart topper. I really enjoyed doing it and it’s now joined the ‘tea corner’ in the kitchen.

My other Crafty Creatives Box 12 make was from the polymer clay cake slice charms.

I brought some clasps and connecting hoops and *heypresto*

Last week was my last Pottery session of the term.
I finished my little house off at home before hand so It would be fired over the holidays.

In class I’ve wrapped up a few projects, glazing and embellishing which hopefully will be fired and ready to collect soon.

I’ve also been trying to improve my knitting skills and in doing so thought I would start again from basics.
A few weeks ago now Sarah at The Sheep Shop ran a beginners knitting class which I attended and though I could already knit found it very helpful to learn cast on methods and various other little bits.

We started handwarmers which I’ve been continuing with I’ve finished one but I’ve dropped a stitch on the other – and this is why I’m going back to learning!

Though fixing mistakes isn’t one of Sarah’s classes I’ve signed upto yet!

Also a Crochet WIP I have going at the moment is a baby blanket for my Sister-in-Law whose baby is due in November.

I have a soft spot for these little granny squares. We do not yet know whether she is having a little boy or girl but I’m intending on crocheting enough blue, green and eventually pink squares so that when we do know I can make a blanket out of what ever is colour appropriate.

My final crafty project this week has been a new notice board.
I purchased some of Miss Beatrix beautiful hand painted buttons a couple of weeks ago and wanted to find a good way to display them along with my Lupin Handmade Brooch.

So today I set to making a notice board to display a few select bits on in my craft room.

I covered an A4 flat artist canvas in spotty blue material and made some bunting. Before arranging & sewing on the buttons and attaching the primrose brooch.
Finally I attached a ‘washing line’ across the board to allow me to added other favourite bits.

Thus far I’ve added a #postcircle #goose sticker I received today on a lovely #postcircle letter, to my notice board ‘washing line’.

I can’t wait to add more! I will keep you updated.
