Hello! Long time no post I know, I know – my excuse is Uni work, and tons of it. I have been doing some bits and pieces of crafting, but sadly I’ve not had time for much. I did, however, manage to send some crochet squares to Lida from Best of Crochet, for her Christmas charity blanket, and here’s the lovely surprise post I got in return:

I was more than happy to participate – especially as the squares were just sitting there waiting to be loved, and I wasn’t expecting anything in return, but it’s very much appreciated, so thank you for the lovely present Lida, and good luck with the blanket, I can’t wait to see it finished!!

Meanwhile, Happy Christmas everyone, and I promise I will blog again soon! Happy holidays x

 

Origami Bauble

Standard

So, 2 posts in one evening: I am definitely procrastinating (essay due next month). Forgot about this until I was sorting out my dropbox. I found it on Tutorial Tuesday and decided it was a good first project for my new glue gun. I’d wanted one for ages, finally got one, then had nothing to try it with (trying VERY hard not to start new projects, unless they’re short term, as I have too much to do that is sadly more important!). I think I googled glue gun projects or something and this popped up in images. As you can see, mine’s not actually a bauble – I made mine with origami paper I had (really need to stash bust that lot!), then stuck it to a bit of dowel I had left over from the mask  I made (covered it with origami paper first – up close that bit doesn’t look very neat, but I was having far too much fun with the glue gun to stop!). Rather than a Christmas ornament, I gave it to my aunty to add to her new home, but I think I might make a few more when I get annual leave in August, ready in time for Christmas!!
