Autumn Musings & Makings

Art, Embroidery

Here are a few things I’ve been working on over October and November. I really wanted to get back into sculpting so made a derpy pumpkin for Halloween! Then I decided to try making a poison apple. I got these cool plastic eyes but they were much smaller than I thought!

I also finally finished my anatomical heart embroidery – it was a bit of a slog because I added more flowers around the heart to give it more depth, as well as adding beads and sequins. I love the little spider!

I’ve been brushing up on my baking skills with a new mixer and the last week have made Oreo brownies and chocolate marble cupcakes. Tasty! As usual my little helper Truffles was on hand for a bit of inspiration.

Since moving house my monster plant I made a while ago got a bit damaged, so I have been working on new leaves and a better pot for him. I really loved working on a big project like this, I need to this of more.

I’ve been dying to try making altered matchboxes, and used these materials to create a very cute little draw thing! It was a kind of experiment but I am pleased with it. It would make a great gift x
