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?


Letterpress using a polymer plate

Letterpress using metal fount

Crochet baby blanket

Ink scribble

Crochet brooch

That's really lovely stuff.

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

Stuff like this:

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

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 )

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

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

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.

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 !
