My FIMO stash was getting close to being completely forgotten, so I decided to use some of it up. Of course, I didn't use too much, I mostly make tiny things from polymer clay. Like stitch markers.
It's kind of cold in my place, so the clay required a lot of conditioning and kneading. The consequence of that: my hands are killing me. Especially the thumbs.
But enough whining, on to the pics:

Two by two, hands of blue : Firefly inspired stitch markers. I think I may have over baked these, they came out way darker than before baking.

Blue things, not really sure what they are, but they have eyes and little "O" mouths, and I think they look kind of cute.

Lemons and hearts.

Cupcakes from leftovers. Not really sure what the flavor is, but what the heck.

A whole cake and some pieces of cake. The topping on these is transparent fimo, skin color. It flaked a little. And the cake cracked on the top, which you can't see due to my amazing pic taking skills.

OMG, I'm updating!

So it's been a while since I last updated this blog, but to my defense this is a blog about creative stuff, and there hasn't been much creativity lately. I guess I got a little lazy. But I'm slowly picking up my knitting again.
I started the Antrophologie inspired capelet with this yellow yarn I originally bought for a sweater. But! I absolutely hate the way the yarn feels, and I really don't like the color anymore. In fact, I despise it so much that I wonder what the hell was I thinking buying it. So I decided to try the capelet,to see if making a
small garment might change the way I feel about the yarn. It didn't.
I tried to use it all up in one project, that I would never wear in public. So I made the capelet into I guess a cardigan. It still needs sleeves. And when and if I finish them, I'll have maybe a skein and a half left.

My friend NataĊĦa's birthday is coming up. She wants a scarf like the one I made for myself. And she wants it in white. The yarn store was out of white Wonderwool, which is a damn shame. So I'm using Merino Mix on 5 mm needles for the scarf. It would have looked so much better in Wonderwool. Faster too.
