I have been making roses all week to relax a little from school, it was quite a difficult week for me and making flowers calms me down! :) I had fun coming up with my own techniques to make roses without a kit or pre-made materials.

Again the pictures are taken with my boyfriend his awesome new camera, I'm amazed how many things it can do and embarrassed about how little I know about cameras! XD

The glass vases are from Glasscraft, the easterbunny and wooden cup I bought at a fair, the eastereggs and basket I made myself.

Finished basket

Well, the basket is finished. I used DMC emroidery thread to weave it. My boyfriend has a new camera so he has been experimenting with it on my mini's. Here are the results!
The wooden table was made using a kit.

Some experimenting

For a swap I've been esperimenting on making roses from scratch, no kits!
And it's working out quite well I think. It's a lot of fiddly work but they come out quite nice!
Offcourse I am making some extra roses to keep for my "Schloss" as well, and then I decided I wanted to try and wicker a little basket to keep them in... yes, when I get creative I also get very chaotic!
So my desk is a verry messy place now! Lots of silk papers, punches, wire, thread, glue, tools.... ;)
But I'm in my element :D

This little boat I embroided this past summer, but I never got around to finish it into some object.. So I've turned it into a pillow now! Not very creative, but it's always better than hidding it unfinished and out of sight in some box! ;)

This is a little needle book I made, it's 1:1 scale, not 1:12. I really needed a needle book since I often take my needles with me and I always loose my needles and pins that way!
It took me a horribly long time to finish up this little book, I whipstitched it all around to put the front and back together and it really feels like doing the same thing 3 times over >_> but I'm so happy with the result!
