Let There Be Light

I finished painting a pair of lampposts recently, despite a bucketload of rain pouring down outside, which is definitely a miracle.

The original tutorial for these used a white table tennis ball on top for the light, but I don’t own any table tennis equipment, so I had to improvise. These lights are balled-up tissue painted yellow, and the posts are rolled paper.

Sarah for scale:

They really light up Diagon Alley, don’t they? I imagine they stay on all night to make the street safe, and they’re turned on and off every morning with a littleĀ lumos charm by a lamplighter.

Anyways, see ya!

Watch the Spikes

These little succulents may just be the smallest things I’ve ever crocheted.

The two on the outside are your classic, spiky, flowering cacti, and the centre one is a succulent.

Isn’t the little flower bud just adorable? All the pots were made and painted for these plants.

The succulent was meant to look like the one I currently have, and I think I got pretty close!

The plant on the left below is meant to be a vine-ish sort, and the other one is a grassy sort. I made these two pots a while ago, and painted the pink dots on the pot on a whim.

I love them, and I would have made more if it wasn’t overkill to have tiny little cacti the size of my pinky nail all over not just my own shelves, but blanketing Sarah’s shelves too. Although the grassy, viney ones could look nice in a massive group on a patio, perhaps…

Anyways, see ya!

More Variety

To add to the variety I was aiming to get into Sarah’s selection of pants, I also made this pair.

This fabric is stretchy, so they have a slimmer fit, especially around the ankles.

The elastic band at the top is wider than the other pair, not that it really matters.

IMG_2154_1

They’re great for seeing the horses, and for coming home from seeing the horses in…

…to a very excited droid. Among other things, they’re good for lounging on that couch in front of a fan with a cold drink because it’s so hot at the moment.

Anyways, see ya!

Spring Bunting

This is almost like a series, isn’t it?

IMG_2139_1

“On this episode of Seasonal Bunting, it’s spring!” *catchy theme tune*

IMG_2140_1

It nearly matches Sarah’s new pants, doesn’t it?

Putting up the new bunting marks the change of the seasons for Sarah, and she’s hopefully heading to Diagon Alley again next weekend for some flowers and plants to put around the house.

BB-8 really likes the camera, he came rolling and beeping from the other end of the house to be in this shot. Drama queen!

Anyways, see ya!

Mini Pictures

I made Sarah a miniature DSLR camera, and she hasn’t stopped taking pictures since.

The strap is plaited thread, and I used some scraps of gold faux leather to secure it to the camera. I thought about making the strap removable, but I think that would have tested my patience beyond measure.

Naturally, the strap’s blue, as I let Sarah choose the colour.

Snatchcorn’s getting his glamour shots, I see. I wish I could show you the pictures Sarah’s taken, but the SD card in her camera is far too small to fit in my computer. They give a very interesting perspective on life, because of the size differences.

Anyways, see ya!
