Day 278: Mustache Mug 2: A #PinAddict Post

Last month I made a Mustache mug using a process that I found on @Pinterest.
This time I tried the same idea, but using porcelain pens.

I found mine on Baker Ross 






So this time I took my clean dry mug and attached my
mustache template.  Make sure that you try and
colour in the middle as evenly as possible. Keep a
damp piece of kitchen roll nearby to tidy up the edges
before the ink dries.

   Carefully remove the template (if you’re using one
that is. I had to tidy up the edges slightly as it bled a
little. Then as per instructions left it to dry for 5
hours.  Baked for 90mins at 200c and left to cool in
the oven.


Again, I put my freshly baked mug through the dishwasher to test the fastness of the print.





Me and my ‘tache mug! A fab make. Love this so much! Now what to tackle next off @pinterest for the PinAddicts Challenge?
21-Day Challenge: Still teetering on the edge. I could be better, I could be a whole lot worse.

Today’s Activity: Managing to negotiate a deal with the people at sky without panicking and handing the phone to The Husband.

Day 277: Clickity Split

I’m still trying to pull myself together after last week’s illness. So as I tend to in these moments I seem to return to wool as therapy.
Today, I was lucky enough to spend a lot of time with a dear friend. We spent most of it making Danish Paperhearts.  How fabulous are these? There are lots all over Google and Pinterest. Not bad for a first attempt.

When I had postnatal depression after the birth of Thing 2 I crocheted like a mad thing possessed, it resulted in a rather long stripy blanket.

This time I have picked up my knitting needles. Working in blocks and rows, in just stocking stitch. Nice and straight forward. No planning and rarely even looking at what I am doing, it keeps the hands and the mind busy.

21-day challenge: still wavering but getting better everyday.
Today’s Activity: Chatting and weaving paper hearts.
