Ceramics & paper Construction fun

We've been playing with clay lately.
Making houses. These are facsimiles of some of the houses I lived in as a child.
The terrace is an attempt to reproduce my nan's house. Thanks to google street view I can actually check out how my memory is now and take a tour of 105 Trafalgar Rd Smethwick
A bottle of tamari is always handy.
And paper--this is a reproduction of the wallpaper that festooned my childhood bedroom walls, ceilings and curtains. Very 70's; very floral; very very.
I made some clay peapods, put them in a frame; and bowls and vases too.

TIny Pics

Well it's been a while! I have been making these tiny drawings to try out my new set of coloured pencils. Very satisfying doing small-I can do more than one a day!

here's a better view~


Here's a family photo of some of my wax objects which have been lovingly cared for and dressed by my friends and family. I think they're fantastic, and I'm having so much fun sending them out and then going back weeks later to collect them!

tis done!Thanks to Victoria's fantastic hints and a punch card thingy that I couldn't do without, I finished my first x-stitch! I have a new-found admiration for x-stitchers contemporary and ancient - it's quite a mind-boggling feat getting all those x's in the right spot, and this is only tiny!

Woolly bits

Hmm I was planning to turn these
into lots of tiny balls of yarn to send out more wax packages to people, but I ended up putting more bits on this thingy. Goodness knows what it is, but it is a welcome relief from the intensity of x-stitching!Looks like it's time to bring the washing in too!
