What have you made recently just for yourself

I spent the afternoon last weekend at a brilliant “Little workshop” in wales on a silver ring making course I made this ring just for myself. I am so happy with it, my first attempt at soldering etc.

What have you made recently just for yourself?

That’s really nice

Thank you, I’m really happy with it, think I may invest in some soldering equipment in the future, was fun making it.

very pretty indeed :smile:
The last thing I made myself was a dress. I’ve committed myself to make one a month for 12 months so far I’m a head of my schedule.

I also in the process of making a dress. I have to adapt the pattern a bit then work other things out but its a slow process, il get to the end of it eventually. Hopefully before summer ends.

It would be nice to see what dresses you have both made, I had a go making a dress last year and i finished it in time to wear to a wedding but i dont think I would do it again, it was harder than I thought it would be when I started, mind you it was very amusing using my boyfriend as a manikin, think the dress actually looked better on him! lou

Made this little silver rune, it means Joy, it may not look much and it’s not quite right, but getting silver wire to fuse at this scale (it measures about 1" tall) is tricky, I’ll have another go and make the top look right. should look more like the drawing on the far right, mine looks too much like a P.

I am being rather naughty, and it is NOT the Sunday lunch sherry,

EileensCraftStudio, 12 new dresses is rather a lot, I am proud to have you as a fellow Folksyer

Lou Lou’s Locker, whilst you may wish to see the dresses the others have made, I was rather hoping to see yours on your 'man’akin!

I’ve recently leaned to knit socks on 4 needles, I’ve just about finished the third pair.

I always feel abit guilty when I keep something for myself, but this necklace matched a couple of new holiday outfits so I sneaked it into my jewellery box :blush:
Sssshhh :wink:

That is lovely! @LouLousLocker

I made myself a pair of earrings and as I can’t seem to wear silver anymore as it irritates my ears, i find rose gold plated are a cheaper alternative. I do like silver though, bit of a pain really!

B (aged 8) and I were inspired to make our own version of “The Birth of Venus”!..

Then she made a small museum…

I love being a Nanny!..
