Book sculptures by Jonathon Callan

It just shows that the only limit to art is our imagination. I love unique forms of art especially recycling. I think this sculpture would look great as a dividing wall in a library or an office. Only problem with it is that it is untidy on the reverse!

Amazing pencil sculptures

Whilst trawling the internet today I came across work by an artist called Jennifer Maestre. I absolutely love the sculptures she has made from coloured pencils, they are amazing.

Kirsties Uni Blanket

This is my current project. It is going to be a blanket/throw for my daughter Kirstie. Kirstie does not really appreciate traditional crochet, so I tried to design something a little bit different for her. This is a free form blanket, and I will keep working back into it to get added shape, texture and dimensions. I am not sure what it will look like when it is finished, but it will definitely look different!

My friend Pauline and I decided to try something different, and asked my mum to show us how to make sugar paste flowers. This is the result. My flowers are on the right.

Festival blanket

I crocheted this blanket for Kelly for her first festival. It was the Beach Break Festival 2010. I decided on a retro style blanket in bright colours. I have told her if she fetches it back to me before Uni I will make it bigger for her. However she has packed it to go to Bestival on the Isle of Wight this week lol.

Oh Dear

I can't believe it has been so long since I posted. So much for posting something every week. I don't have any excuses for not posting other than I just didn't get around to it! However I have still been making things so I guess I have some catching up to do!
