Go Fishing?

My little chef told me that she was going to the market but in fact she went fishing and brought some funny fish back. Why funny fish? Phew~

I re-started making some fish three weeks ago when the hubby was away during two weeks. I found I almost forgot the way to control the clay and the shapes of fish. When I completed the first 4 fish, I sent the photo to Carol, Alison and KT.

Carol and Alison were very kind to me, they both gave me a lot of compliments and said my fish was cute. On the contrary, KT, my instructor, mock me and said it was that difficult to make the 4 fish which have 4 different looks, as if they were chatting in the ocean. Oh, fortunately I knew her and my heart was strong enough, otherwise I must be sad to die. LOL

Sometimes I worked and sometimes I stopped. What you have seen on the pictures is made during these three weeks. I will show you those I made in Taipei next time.
Now I might say fish-making is also a road of no return. Or I should say, making creatures is a lot of fun but it’s not easy at all. I would love continue practicing since I like to see the emotion they release in their eyes.  :o)


Little Daisy in the Garden

This is the first post in the first day of the spring! We have sunny day and mild weather here since the weekend.  It’s quite cozy and comfortable. I love the SPRIGN!!!

I made some little pots of daisies and philodendron and some crates in my  tiny garden. Little daisies, little bunnies and little birds are the elements of my spring!

Inspired by a Taiwan friend, Linda, I tried and made a stool with woven seat. The stool was made of basswood and cotton thread. It’s not practical to use basswood since it’s that soft and it consumes a lot of time to weave the seat. I have talked to a friend cause my wood knowledge is limited. If some of you also have any good idea, welcome and please kindly share with me.

The little chef has cleaned her hands and dress and has left the garden. She is on the way to the market now. Let’s see what she will prepare for the next!

Shout for joy of the spring!!

Flower of April- Peonies

I have chatted with a friend about a dreamy wedding scene recently. I started to make some peony bouquets since I believe peony is popular and welcome for most of brides.  

After seeing these flowers in full bloom on my craft table, I suddenly became conscious that I needed to force my chef to be back to the tiny kitchen. She has been spending too much time in the garden.

Have a cozy weekend and hope you love my tiny flowers, friends! Don't forget our giveaway either! :o)


Mini Tin Cans and French Market Bag

I have been thinking to make some metal things for a long time. These mini tin cans are not exact metalwork but I am glad for the first step and expect to do some soldering in the coming weeks.

Inspired by Marie (Le Petit Monde de Merveilleux de Marie), I tried weaving a French string bag this week.

It’s not finished yet because I don’t figure out the way of closing. LOL  I have ever made some tatting lace in 2009 but it is as painful as the bag weaving for me.  It kills not only time but also my life.  :o)

It’s a cheerful Friday today cause our two furniture have just arrived this morning. I will decorate one of them with my dolls and miniatures after the hubby comes back from the business trip next week.
Hope you like this post and have a great weekend, :-)
