Black Crafters Guild

African Diasporans creating, decorating, and artistically altering by hand





We all need some inspiration every now and again, so I thought "lets have a monthly theme!" We would create a piece of work which followed the theme for the month for example: Africa or COLOURS etc.. Then post it on the group page. Whaddayah thinks?

I made two things, but the image access didn't work! It asks for a url... so I put the images on flickr and it didn't present them... so i gave up, since i can't show what i made for the challenge... but it lead to all sorts of things... a new line of lariats, and i developed brand new patterns for maple leaves, oak leaves and gingko leaves......

I am sooo sorry everyone, but I am so behind this month that I don't think I'm gonna finish the October challenge. (Pathetic). I guess I'll have to try again for Novemeber.

I've made several gold brown things, Zayunu, the challenge is taking the pictures when there is no longer much sunlight. Getting my aide to fetch my tools is difficult, but i have getting my halogens up from the basement on the list.

Pink-orange book:

I finished the orange-pink theme book. I ruined the covers so I just made a quick, slap-dash book for myself. I forgot to take a pic of the rear cover, which features a painted real leaf (pink) on the orange board. Will upload pic. I finished the Ocean theme covers, but have to get more spine cloth in before I can bind the books. I made 2 sets, both featuring the African goddess Oshun. Haven't done the Heat project yet. I doubt I'll be able to catch up before the year's over. Sorry!

Here's the pathetic explanation for my late September contribution: My girlfriend invited me to a jewelry-making party. Yea! So I get there and it takes me almost an hour to decide what to make, then the little beads kept popping out of my fingers and rolling off of the felty pad that was SUPPOSED to keep them in place! I was a mess! So....I learned to stick with sewing, cause jewelry making is NOT for me, (LOL!) but I did get a cool pair of ocean blue earrings out of the deal!

That heat pin is incredible. Btw, I thought I'd declared the August theme at the beginning of it, but I see no evidence of that. If I didn't, I'm sorry. Don't know how I managed to think I had if I hadn't.
