Cat in the Hat

I’ve been doing a bit of experimenting lately, instead of blogging… and the best thing to come out of it is this:

I’ve had the sewing machine for years but this is the first project that I’ve actually completed – had a two-day deadline, which helped! I found a couple of patterns online and adapted them to make a hat the right size. Then I spent 2 hours designing and making the bow, which I’m very pleased with, and the result:

And of course, there is a black furry tail too.

The Wire

A little bit of wire-tapping for the glass workshop. Have been focusing on hearts on the run-up to Valentine’s Day, and may soon have to figure out a good bunny shape for Easter…

A New Hope

A long time ago in a blog far far away….

The old blog is dead.  A new hope for what comes next as I really will try to keep this one alive, not starved and forgotten like the last.  Time for a clean sweep and to post some of the interesting things I’ve been up to.
