Clay Mayhem alive and well…

This warrior women was a lot of fun to make.

She involved a lot of disked being made, and even chain mail being carved into her torso. a mix of glazes where combined to bring her to life and beading added after firing to give her a bit more pizzaz.

This is one of my warrior women she is up for sale on my Etsy site, get in quick whilst she lasts, as she is a one off, no two are ever alike.


Clay Mayhem Lives

Hi all I am around still, just so busy that blogs get forgotten, on the list today so lets see how we go.

This is Autumn, say hello to her divine colourings, her take on the season just gone, her majesty, say hi, and say wow that buyer had her before we even saw her 😦

I had so much fun in making this one, and even her leaves came from inspiration of the tree outside our shed we work from.

Busy Busy Hills Fabric and Craft De-Stash, one year on.

It has been a long time since I have had chance to get on here and write a blog on anything, be it about clay creations, sewing or the de-stash events and even life. Tonight I am going to at least write about what has been occupying me the most, my de-stash events.

Well it is now a year in and I have held four de-stash events so far and they are just getting bigger each time, it is so awesome to see so many come together and help each other out in different ways.

We have raised money for the local bush fire brigade, helped out with collecting fabrics for  a prison release program, made bags for SARC, and currently we are raising money and goodies for Cancer Quilts Against Cancer, it has been an amazing journey.

I could not have done any of it without of the amazing people I have had involved along the way.

We are now onto our fifth event in a just under two weeks time and also we have just released an event in Bunbury at the request of the ladies down there.

thumbnail_hills-fabric-cdIt has been such an amazing time that I can not wait to tell you all about how the next one pans out.

And I shall try very hard to update my blog at least monthly with clay and sewing works for your enjoyment.

Masks for Christmas

DSCN2047So very happy with how these three have come out for me, they are as follows…..BEWARE, DARE YOU and YOU DID.DSCN2152And do they ever pop with their colours, now to keep them hidden away till Christmas for the other half’s present.

Simplicity 9469 Birthday Shirts

DSCN1823Well that is two more done nad dusted, pattern re-sized again (you would think he could stop putting on across the shoulders to make life simpler for me. NO).                                                       Have to say I could not see a shirt made from the fabric above (his choice), have to say upon completion I am quite liking it.

DSCN1822And this is the other fabric choice, very loud and proud. Think he will get away with saying “he’s in the money” with the first one and as for this one ????.

Free Form Pottery New Faces

DSCN1513Today was our last day of term(last Thursday) and I was determined (even though not feeling the best) the complete a few more faces for the tree stump at home.

DSCN1514So these three crazy faces evolved from the one I did before.

DSCN1515I love how from one shape , in this case a circle with equal petals coming of, can be then changed so greatly to create three different looks.

DSCN1516I do suspect that I may regret putting so much detail into the top two when it comes to painting them.
