A Joint Project From The Summer
Hi and welcome to my blog (or welcome back if you’ve visited before). Thank you for coming to have a look.
I hope that you are all keeping safe and well and have managed to avoid the dreaded COVID-19 pandemic.
Regular visitors will know that I’ve not been in the best of health for a very long time, and that over the summer I had to have an emergency operation as well as having various infections. So I hadn’t done a lot of crafting.
Nor was I able to go out the garden and potter about with my raised beds and troughs like I usually do, or collect fresh flowers for my mother’s room every other day. I had made her some small faux flowers that she has in a small vase over the winter (and have since made her some roses for her birthday which you can see – here). But during the summer my nephew and myself did a joint project to give my mother a small vase of different flowers to look at.
My nephew has a 3D printer, and I’ve shown you some of his work before, so he chose a vase from an assortment he’d downloaded from Thingiverse, which he adjusted the size and some parametors, and then printed out in some varigated PLA filament that I’d bought – only problem is that, because the vase was a small one, the whole vase printed out in one colour, but I think it’s the perfect colour for this project.
For my part in the project I took a Forever Flowerz Delightful Daisies making kit to bed with me and made up some flowers in several colours – using just the smaller sized daisy makeing layers. There was also another flower I’d made up previously in my flower making box that I added for a bit of variety and interest.
Finished Vase and flowers
While I have some way to go before my health is back to even my not so good normal, I am feeling a whole lot better than I have been, so hopefully you will see more regular blog posts from me during October.
