I’ve been really busy with my pieces for the Creative Exchange of late – so much so that I’ve forgotten to post up my progress. I’ve got so much to do this month that time is very limited, but I want to post up a few more piccies to show you how I’m getting on.
Last week I cut the two rods of acrylic I received into small discs as I decided to make an orange neckpiece and a green neckpiece too. The next task was to drill two holes into each disc and this is where things went horribly wrong. I nearly cried as it took me so long […]
I’ve been working through ideas of what to do with my pieces of coloured acrylic and because the clay pieces that also came in the box, along with the acrylic, are flower-like, I’m going to use these as a starting point for my piece(s). I want to make something wearable and tactile and bright – […]

We’ll soon be holding regular film nights in our mini cinema and so I’ve taken on the task of making some bean bags. I’ve been collecting vintage fabric and thinking up patterns and tonight have made my first prototype to test out my pattern. I love it!
