wow! Sue, the dolls are very cool!
Sue - utterly brilliant! I never got to grips with paper sculpture - just not precise enough I guess. But those are just to die for!
… and somebody else is doing lace and has a blog for it, too :hint hint:
there's a blog?
oh sue! the paper dolls! i LOVE these. they're entirely amazing. i don't know how you manage them. LOVE the artist.
Thanks - the artist is one of the oldest - I was maybe 13 when I made that one.
i thought that Jana meant you with "the artist" which i found totally correct, since i love the artist too
The penguins rule
Reading through this lovely thread has made me realise that I don't do any art and craft type thing whatsoever
I think I need a hobby.
well, with a place of your own you might actually find space to do something, too
is there anything you think you would like to try?
Can't think of anything.
Not really much help, am I?
Reading through this lovely thread has made me realise that I don't do any art and craft type thing whatsoever I think I need a hobby.
What about the bead bracelets and things you made?
I think I'm after something a bit more challenging , but something I can do at home.
For my birthday Karen gave me a fantastic craft book - talks you through a myriad of different craft projects, so you could try a few and see what you enjoy. I will let you have the book details in case it appeals to you.
you could bring it on the 27th, if its not too bulky (I'll swap it for your birthday pressie ). I'll photocopy the stuff I like the look of and post it back (or give it to Rain to bring back in July)
I do like the idea of making stained glass . Though I guess that's not a do it at home type thing. Might see if there are any workshops I can go and watch.
I used to have a Big Book of Arts & Crafts when I was about 10 Really should've kept it
It's a small but thick book which will not copy well (and I do hate broken spines on books), but I can certainly bring it along for you to have a look at - but why not just check out a few second-hand bookshops; there are always loads of craft books.
I had a look in the Oxfam bookshop on Saturday, but they had nothing. I'll hunt around for a craft shop in London.
