It all started out with a bowl carving course, where I carved my first two bowls.
Since then I've worked with Raph ( who I met on the course) to learn to make a 'Bowlmate' carving horse,
and I'm still working on my first cup and bowl carved at home.
Prompted by enjoying making 'something' so much, I've signed up for a sewing machine course. It took me three classes to make this bag (well, one of those was learning how to set up a machine), and then one short evening to make one without help.
I've moved up a gear with attempting a dress for K, for which Wendy gave up her Saturday to teach me step by step.
I'm hoping to keep doing and making, and hopefully figure out how to get the photos on here so I can see my progress. I'm having so much fun doing this, but also realising I don't often get to actually show anyone what I've been up to, so hopefully I can share this way.
Ahhh, so that's what you've been up to!! I LOVE the dress(es have read both blog entries :o)!! They've turned out beautifully! The carseat cushions also looking fab! Am now wishing even more that I could go within 100yards of a sewing machine without triggering it to self-combust mode lol! (Mum's very kindly put hers to one side for me to learn on eventually)ReplyDelete
Will have to figure out how to become a fan now so I get to know when you've updated :)
