Just a sample of some of the things I made in 2010 as I sit here drinking bubbles (no, nothing French - I'm making do with a very nice Canadian equivalent - yep, they make wine out here and some of it is quite good!) and waiting to greet the new year!!
OK - so I'm really playing with a new website I've just found out about. I was about to download an expensive photoshop action to create blog montages and found a comment on one of my photography forums about this website: http://bighugelabs.com I used their mosaic maker linking to my flickr account to create the montage above. So easy! And free! Both excellent qualities!!!!
From the comments on my previous post, I've decided to do some quilting and some felting in 2011. My last experience with patchwork (it's nearly quilting, right?) was aged about 13 when I made a patchwork cushion for my Home Economics class - can't say it rocked my world then, but I've seen some fabulous quilts in blogland and think there is probably a style of quilting out there that I may like and I have loads of fabric scraps after all! Felting I have never, ever tried but there is a first time for everything and I'm curious!
My other self-imposed challenge for 2011 is to make at least one temari ball ... I've had the materials for a while but haven't got round to it yet. The basic ball is formed - I just need to create the divisions and start the embroidery. And I'm also tempted by sashiko....
Wish me luck and watch this space!
Happy New Year! (we're nearly there - just 6 hours to go now!!)
