Thanx, yes I built it in my dinning room, unfortunately my cellar is to small and I was not allowed to do that in garage, so...

I made 4 holes on each one from sides, then glued two of them and tight them with spanners, after glu get dry 3rd, 4th, 5th... And every time I expand spanners and wait 45min before putting new one. Until all (in my case 12 pcs) are glued together. After that I put threaded rods trough that holes I made and tight with washer and bolts from each side. Only thing I didn't do it are those zig-zag cuts from sides (don't know actual term for this- in my country we call it "diht-abriht cuts") I pay local carpenter 50chf for that.
ok...i did not see the holes. Well done!

Finished a hat for friend's child last night (her dad walked away, any little gesture counts <3 ). Very red hat.

Re: What do you make? Show us your stuff...

I am a beginner sketcher. I think I sketched 5 things last 20 years, but decided to do it more...support my kid to continue her art interests

Kids have amazing imagination. We attach ourselves obssessively to what we see.

Re: What do you make? Show us your stuff...

I like this new sketching hobby..it is not ideal but what art is perfect, the process itself is so fun. Need something else to practice on

I helped my kid with her own 1st sewing projects, I think picking out the fabrics was the most fun

Re: What do you make? Show us your stuff...

This one is for my little brother, because he is a brat. Another one, same one, will be for my big brother, for the same reason.

It is 100% merino, I like how chunky the beanie is while being really soft. Guys have a soft side.

That's interesting. Could you please post a link to your sister's paintings? If she will allow it, "before" and "new style"... Thanks.
All her paintings are displayed at southafricanartists.com

or Google her ..... Arlene McDade.

Her "new style" is only recently developed beginning with a painting called "Serendipity" with quite a few along the same style after that.

She paints like mad, so one has to plow thru many paintings to find the new ones!
