BJP December 2014

Hi everyone, just finished my December BJP (I thought I'd get in early, a very busy month ahead). This is a Daffodil Bear (Cancer Council charity bear), beans taken out and restuffed. He's about 8" tall and 10 1/2" around his tum. I decided not to bead his muzzle as I like his face as is. I experimented with a few stitches from Cyndi's 'Bored by Backstitch - 3  - I'm very pleased with the results.
Here's wishing everyone one of you and your families a Merry Xmas and good health in 2015. Thank you all for the privilege of seeing your fantastic and inspirational work. Looking forward to next year's BJP.

Oct Nov BJP

2 posts in one day - I'm making up for lost time.
This little goddess doll is my Oct Nov BJP. I used one of the resin cabs I made a while ago. I do like purple and turquoise. She has been waiting for a rope so I made this chenille stitch rope to hang her from.

Bead Journal Project and more

Hi everyone, I just don't know where this year has gone. Have done lots of work, but wasted so much time on the computer. Have had lots of problems this year. I have upgraded my internet allowance but can't do anything about the speed apparently. Often I have given up trying to upload photos as it has been so slow. On top of that my hard drive on which I store my photos doesn't work any more so I will have to take it to a shop to see if they can access them. I moved them to create some space on my computer. Computers are wondrous things but they create a lot of havoc!

Since My teapot project, I have completed 'Daisy' as well as several cab and owl brooches. I took a felting class with Elizabeth Armstrong from Melbourne, a wonderful tutor. I was so pleased with the results. I have also made more polymer clay faces and had a play with resin.
