Hi, back again with more behind-the-scenes shots from the October show.
I was making six metres of hanging decorations to hang on the front of the stand, but I needed somewhere to hang them at home too.
Out came the lamps and the tripod! ha ha. Worked well in the end...
This hallway is right outside my room, so I'd make stuff, hang it on the drawer knobs then transfer it out here.
When making stuff like this it's important for me to see how it's progressing and by hanging the bits up as I went along...well, I was able to see how it was progressing.
Umm, kinda slowly.
No glitter yet. Wasn't going to in the beginning, but it needed it and looked lovely with it in the end.
Still slowly...the photos don't translate the string very well. I remember this from last year. Anyway, there are more on there than it looks like.
Love that long one hanging down towards the front there with all the punched shapes up and down the string.
Andrew made a couple of decs too. Can't get away from doing craft in this house. He asked to do it too, I didn't ask him.
He made a jingle bell string with the berries and green/white pipe cleaner right below...
...see it near the black pole there? He also made a foam ball with Merry on it. He just did the Merry bit, I had to fill it in with white glitter.
I love this photo of the dog!
He was walking up the hallway and I told him to Stop and Sit. He's gorgeous. Note the fuzzy ornaments to the right there - swinging due to someone's tail swiping them.
Are are over 100 strings there - I think 110 in the end. Looked like more in real life!
I'll put the pics up of them at the show in my next update post.
See you then!
