It's about time for another post. (Featuring Hine)

I've been meaning to do two blog posts recently; One of all the random things I've been making for myself, and one for my current secret project.

For the random things, however, I have to actually take photos of them.... I've been super busy lately, so that just hasn't been happening.

For the secret project, I wanted to work on it a bit more before blogging about it. But again! I've been so busy doing other things, I haven't had time to work on that project.

I will get around to both of those posts eventually. But for now, I just want to talk about some random things.

Last weekend was K's mum's birthday, so we were gone all weekend. I crocheted her a violet flower brooch for part of her present from a DROPS pattern. I suffered from K-syndrome, however, and forgot to take any photos of it, so I will have to post photos of it later. I made it purple, and put a yellow felt backing on it for the pin to attach to. I also sewed one small pearl in the middle, where all the petals meet. I was actually pretty happy with how it turned out, and might have to make one for myself! (Though, I don't really want to sell them. I like presents for people being one-of-a-kinds)

Lately, I've been enamoured with Hine's photostream on Flickr. Her needle felting is just.. amazing! And she is amazingly creative.. The things she makes are just SO CUTE.  I've never needle felted, myself, but I've always wanted to. It's a bit intimidating because of the skill you need. But Hine gets all of her felt so smooth and beautiful looking! She's definitely very inspiring. My favourite felt creation of hers so far is her ectoplasm.

She is also a little bit obsessed with squids. I can get behind that! They are so cute! Maybe K's squid can be friends with her little felt ones?

She also sews things, like camera and cell phone cases. The best part is, she makes them look like different cameras and phones. If I had the money, I would definitely buy one! (They're a bit expensive, but definitely worth is for something so cute and meticulously hand sewn).

That's all for now. More random things to come!
