Charlie’s Teacher’s Gifts for 2015

Every year our son Charlie likes to make presents for his teacher and their assistant. Last year they were woven, this year printed and sewn.

Charlie printed the fabric using acrylic paint mixed with textile medium and I sewed the finished fabric into a couple of cushions (with zippers thanks to my new old sewing machine. More about that tomorrow)!

He’s got a great printmaking technique for a kid who hasn’t even turned sevenย yet ๐Ÿ™‚

Flowers, Weird Gardens and My Cute Kid :)

My little Charlie really loves Doctor Who, Chameleon Circuit (and his sister).
Here’s a video his sister made combines all those things in one. I cried with the laughing at the cuteness but that may just be because I’m his Mum. Or maybe not. I especially like the bit near the end. New lyrics, yay! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s the video he’s watching. An Awful Lot of Running by Chameleon Circuit.

But wait, there’s more!

This week’s flower loom tutorial is all about the twirl centre. This style of centre can be made on any flower, any shape, size, or material. I hope you like it. I have about another 110 flower loom videos to go ๐Ÿ™‚

I had to learn some new techniques to make the intro more interesting, so I practiced some of them in an animation that I call “Strange Garden”. It’s a simple piece made with images and footage that I had on my computer but I had a lot of fun with it and will probably make more in the future (with better graphics and a storyline and everything!)

Tomorrow, more cooking!

Charlie’s Here!

Brand new Charlie

Charles Patrick Overton (or Charlie, as we like to call him) decided to finally show up 9 days late at 3.04am on January 13th.

The extra cooking time seems to have served him well as he was born weighing in at 4.025 kg, or 8 pounds 14 oz (ouch).

Work in Progress

If you’re not in any of the Aussie groups on Ravlery you may be wondering where the hell I’ve been.

To cut a long story short, I’ve been very busy working on my latest project.
Introducing Blob Overton II (at 12 weeks):

Baby Charlie in progress

Blob is now 14 weeks and 1 day and making me thoroughly ill but very happy ๐Ÿ™‚

Watch this space for a whole slew of baby knitting over the next 26 weeks, plus a few things I’m knitting for Blob the first (now known as Miss Brittany and soon to be 15 years old)!
