This photo above shows me inserting the mixture into the mould.

The photo above shows the cakes straight from the oven.

And the photo below shows the finished cakes once I had decorated them with coloured icing. The one in the middle looks different as it was from a rose shaped mould instead !

Crochet Flower Brooch

brooch pin crochet

I was asked a while ago to make a crochet gift for a friend of my mum's. She didn't mind what it was, only that it was a handmade gift made by me!  I decided to make a brooch that she could either wear with a scarf or clothes or even attach to a bag.

As shown above I made the flower on the brooch by making a mixture of different coloured/sized crochet flowers , I also made it with different thickness of wool. I then sewed the flowers together with matching threads ( as shown above ). Then I added a sew on brooch pin I got from a craft store. I hope you like it :)

My mum's friend was so keen for me to do this special request that she even paid me for my work - I was soooo happy, Masha'Allah.

The photo above is a picture of a drawing I made, I created it using some new pencils and a new notepad I recently bought. I based the picture on a cherry blossom tree I saw at a park and I did some birds and a sun-set behind it.

I made a Trinket Box recently when I was at my Girl Guides Class. I have only recently joined the Girl Guides and I am really enjoying it, especially when they do crafts! I hope you like it. I am hoping to do some more pottery work with them again soon.

This week I have been doing lots of drawing in my spare time. The photo collage below shows you how I made the design for the badge above.  I started with a hand drawing of the design and then I went over it with different shades of coloured pens.

The photo collage below shows some other drawing designs that I have been doing this week. I had a mini private art lesson from a friend showing me how to do shading and I have been trying to learn this technique this past week. I hope you like my designs.
