Look at What I Made...

Hello Everyone smile
Bit of a cheek really, no picture attached!
(I can't attach photos from my phone for some reason confused - nothing at all to do with the fact that I haven't made anything recently hmm)

I thought it might be a nice idea to have a thread showing photos of stuff that we've made.

It was partially inspired by a poster saying that she makes jewellery, and I realised that posters are often mentioning stuff they've made, making me think 'I'd love to see that'.
Also there has also been some beautiful quilting photos recently. And the cheeky bagpiper of course.

It can be anything at all; cakes; jewellery; Mary's granddaughter's fairy garden; Soop's cat house; even something like a front door that you've painted.

I know that we all like a little nosy at what others have made, and hopefully it will inspire at least me to pull my finger out and do something creative for a change!
Thank you flowers

I'm not arty crafty. I've never been able to paint, cook, knit, sew etc. but DH is. Here's a couple of things he's made recently. He's now in the process of making a cathedral window cushion and planning to recover the seats of the boot jump.

I like to take photographs. Does that count?

Oh thank you VQ I was worried that this thread would just die a death.
Lovely cushions and gonk!
Morris too! I've currently got Golden Lily (the second pic) as my lounge wallpaper, not that colourway though.
Yes, of course photos count!

I’m not talented in anyway either, but my little daughter - aged 36! - made me this beautiful cushion for my 70th birthday, and the quilt for my 71st. I don’t know where she gets it from.

grandmajet Sun 07-Mar-21 11:59:53

Clearly I am not talented at posting photos either!

grandmajet Sun 07-Mar-21 12:00:40

Oops. Maybe I’m better than I thought!

FannyCornforth Sun 07-Mar-21 12:02:13

They are beautiful Grandmajet
The cushion fabric is gorgeous. I love stuff with birds on

This is my latest knit

grandmajet Sun 07-Mar-21 12:35:38

Thank you Fanny, I will tell her. She views my gransnet outings with some amusement!

That was me FC. Unfortunately I don’t have many photos of my creations but this bracelet is one of my earliest efforts. It was a birthday present I made for my big sister. Sapphire is her birthstone and the design is based on jewellery of the Tudor area. They loved pearls and crosses.

I love it, Blossoming.

Aw I love these clever people!

Blossoming Sun 07-Mar-21 14:00:39

Thank you Grandmajet. I enjoy the whole creative process 🙂

Beautiful cushion, quilt, jumper and bracelet on here, just lovely.

Latest imperfect sock knitting creations. Ran out of pink wool so added some mustard for the toe.

Miniature silhouette in a vintage mini mosaic frame. I quite like tiny paintings.

Grandmafrench Sun 07-Mar-21 17:12:30

What a talented bunch - you should be very proud of yourselves. 🤩🏆

Mollygo Sun 07-Mar-21 17:14:38

Does this count?

Grandmafrench Sun 07-Mar-21 17:27:18

That's fantastic - are you Mrs Patmore from Downton Abbey by any chance?

Ladyleftfieldlover Sun 07-Mar-21 17:34:28

I love baking Simon Schama’s delicious cheese soufflé recipe and decorating my fridge with magnets.

Mollygo Sun 07-Mar-21 17:51:41

Grandmafrench no, but it makes liking to eat lots of pastry look good.

A painting I did and my husband made it into a real clock.

grandmajet Mon 08-Mar-21 10:37:50

Again, not me but my daughter - I did make her, however!

Grandmafrench. I love Mrs Crocombe, the cook in the English Heritage videos. You can see them on YouTube.

Love that jumper LadyGracie, the colours make me think of heather.

Ladyleftfieldlover I enlarged your fridge photo and enjoyed having a snoop around your magnets. You've got some fab ones. My dad has got a similar collection which I try to add to whenever I can.
Mollygo oh my goodness! That pie! I've never seen one like that in real life, it looks amazing. DH would faint with delight if I ever made anything near as marvellous as that.
What is inside it?
