I feel like being late has become a thing and I really doin’t like it at all. but life just keeps rolling on no matter my plans. So I finished that tree topper I was talking about in my last post. Normally with a star this large I would stuff it to fill it out and have it keep its shape but as this one has to be open to go on the tree I can’t do that. Still its cute and not bad for a first go at a tree topper. Especially considering it was modified from two patterns. Hopefully Penny likes it.
And I spent today finishing a snowman one of my aunts asked for.
So I don’t have any progress shots to share with you so here is a photo of my first polyhedron sculpture. this was back when I was using larger beads as gap fillers and they do look good while the coating on them lasts, but they soon look rather crap which is why I stoped using them. And also because I figured out that I could used brick stitch to fill in the gaps seamlessly. I’ll have to redo this one one day in my up dated style. Its a fun shape and I love the colours although the white did not age well, which is a shame. It’s hard to tell from the photo but it did not have the last dome in when I took this photo, but I have added it in since then, because I couldn’t leave it unfinished. I’ve still yet to make the monstrosity that got me into making shapes in the first place but maybe soon.
Talking about early projects that I want to redo and complete is this set done with the same white beads that did not age well. I have two more spheres to add to this set but I want to leave these ones alone and just redo the set. the blue one makes a really cute bauble in Christmas colours I’ll have to make more next year.
well the next few days will also be busy so my next post will properly be a short one but we shall see.
talk to you next time Lou.
