What do you make? Show us your stuff...
 
We have a post full of delightful things baked and created by members of the forum but I've not been able to find a thread with listing of items created by forum members. It'd be a great way to share ideas and inspiration (just like the baking/ cooking thread).

So show us what you've made? Do you knit, embroider, paint, sew, sketch or create in some other way?

Here are a few bits and pieces I've made... Show me yours? ;)

That's really lovely stuff.

I string beads on wire, take them apart and do it again.

Stuff like this:

I'm building an electric bicycle. I didn't build the bike but I made the motor myself, am now busy designing and building all the electronics (based on the amount of processors I'm using, it's going to be at least a quad-core :msnnerd:)

I would, but unfortunately I'd need a course in downloading photos first:(

I do pastel landscapes (or at least I used to, it's been a while since I finished one).

Thanks :-) ... but unfortunately I seem to have run out of steam - the three "green" ones that I posted were done in June 2009, and I don't think I have managed to finish one since then. Maybe this thread will get me going again though.

very nice work.
why do they look like water color to me.. really are they pastels ?

stephen_NE 23.08.2011 21:58

Re: What do you make? Show us your stuff...
 
Thanks for the comments.... yes, definitely pastels :). I have done some watercolours in the past but it's MUCH harder to get right than pastel !
