Where does the time go

 I cant believe its been so long since I posted ...some of my time has been taken up making my sons cosplay outfit maybe he will let me take a pic when its finished .It was also his 19th birthday and I still find it hard to believe that my youngest is almost 20 O_o. But as for minis I have learnt how to make ribbon roses from a you  tube tute , there are loads out there! So I made a little hat to use some of the roses.
 Ive been playing with air dry clay ....attempting to make plant pots ...not happy with them yet...just have to keep experimenting I guess.
 working on some bottles etc with acylic beads and some free online printy labels ...I think they will work.
And I have learnt how to do needlepunch so am attempting a bathmat !Apart from those things I have been working on mystery box items you cant see those yet ;)

using my test print

 In my last post you can see the sheet of test print I did on the freezer it is on a HOM kit I picked up for $2. I like it so much better than the blue that was in the box.
more detail of the tissue boxes hopefully you can see that I even put the plastic in the top where the tissues come out. And a shot of the bottom.

I Love freezer paper!

 I had never heard of freezer paper until last week when I saw it used on "For the love of Minis " blog ....Im hooked the posibilities are endless!After testing this out on a full sheet of pattern I looked through some of my art books and found some images to make cushions :)
 2 completed tiny cushions.
While I was playing with my computer I sneezed fortuitous ....I looked at the tissues and thought ...Im sure I could here is my miniature tissue box :) I hope everyone has a wonderful day :) Happy mini ing !

Trying to get things finished

 The above two pics area kit I bought ages ago and I just got around to finishing it .I changed things a little making a padded base for the chair.
 This is sideways :/ but anyway you get the idea....I bought myself some magnetic clips and put unfinished things in palastic bags then put them on the front of my locker....this way when I go in there to do something Im reminded to finish what I start...well the chair and quilting frame were the first bag to go :)
 LOL superglued my fingers together on this ...then split the glued seams while attemping to lace it....this goes down as a learning experience . I dont like glued seams ;) Oh well another bag gone ...but this time to the bin LOL.
 I bought this book a while ago ....not to knit the patterns ......
 but to adapt them to sewing ....
 all of the patterns have clear diagrams with measurements ,so
 I used these to make a pattern
and attempted a blazer....ok this is mark 1 and the pattern needs some work ...but it will get there ...again not happy with gluing so the needle and thread is out again...lets hope I continue to finish what I start ;)
