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 womenshe 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.
A few, okay a lot of you may know I have been involved, okay okay organizing with the help of Neridah from EventScene a massive fabric de-stash event.
Well Sunday we had the event and it was a major success, we had 28 sellers and a few hundred buyers through the door, take a look at some of our pics from the day.An amazing array of fabrics from, silks, leather, quilting cottons to polar fleece and knitting wool, even wool you could spin yourself, tapestry and upholstery , books about sewing and even machines for sale,everything came through though the door and more left with very happy buyers.
Now I still do not believe it, but I have finished this top, and I do not really like it, the neckline is to high for me, so the next time I attempt to make this I will be making it lower, the fit is quite reasonable and only needs a little tweaking above the bust line (next one).This is the top before I had finished it, on the mannequin that I have finally gotten around to adjusting to fit me, rather than store-bought size, does help a lot and I also found it helped me a lot to be able to pin on it rather than on a flat surface (few more weeks to go before I can use my hand properly again).
Today I had hoped to get back to the sewing I was doing yesterday that included the cut outs of the skaters for my sons bedspread and the pattern alterations for the shirts for Jeff.
Oh no not to be instead I spent the day pulling timber from my fathers lean to and sorting all the dressed and undressed all the tongue and groove all the 4×6 and 4×4’s into order oh and all the timber that can now be used for burning (no need to buy any this year). I also sorted out all the metal for scrap for the verge, all in all a six broken finger nail day (oh well they will be short for a while), back to it again tomorrow to try to finish, will make a big difference to over all for him as he is struggling to do this these days.
