I'm still here...........

.............In between work I haven't had much time left over for posting!
Last weekend I tried some new things. First Aiden made this mask wth a little help using Papier Mache, all he needs now is a orange curly wig!!!.
I made this bowl using another {Wavy} bowl as a mould.
and finally all this week I have been learning how to Crochet and boy that isnt no mean feat!!!
It took me two days to get a magic ring going!!! { I have Rheumatoid excuse and Im sticking to it!!!!}
James said that this has become a new obsession but try explaining to a man that there is a difference between obsession and determination!
Here are my first and second attempts at 1 layer flowers. Imnot sure they are neat enough for me to use on a card but practice makes perfect . This all started Monday after a copy of Lets Get Crafting fell in my shopping basket. I've only started one other project all week !!

  • Papier Mache Kit ~ KSG Pastimes.
  • Lets Get Crafting ~ Free Crochet Kit.

Know you're still there, Susie... What a cute mask. I remember, that I made one mask when I was in 6th grade, around 31 years ago.. wow, and I still remember how to make it.. And your bowl is so clever. Love it. The crochetted flowers, ah, Susie, for the first time, they are fabulous... I haven't tried to make one.. LOL..
