it grew!

for my first project at uni this year i descided to look at wool as it is a material that is avalible very cheaply at the moment

i found that wool is a fantastic material for growing plants.
  • it holds moisture (so you can forget to water it and it will not be a problem)
  • it can be used straight from the sheep which takes the nutrients that are found in the wool, such as green matter, to help the plants grow
  • it protects the seeds from weeds and any other nasties that might damage them before they have a chance to grow
  • it gives the seeds a protective casing and can start grewing without planting, the wool gives the seeds everything they need
... and anyway, IT GREW! i watered 2 of my seed capsuals before i left for easter (thursday 25th march) and i came back this morning and they have grown! In not sure exactly what i planted in this one :-s it could be a sunflower seed which would be good, this just adds to the excitement of waiting for it to flower :-)

this one even has roots!

the red one didnt work as well :-(

i think the reason it didnt work is because it is made from tops which has been dyed (i dont think it was dyed naturaly for some reason <3) and i think that the dye is the reason it hasnt grown.

but even this one grew roots :-)

also as a bit of a side note! i woke up to find a fox sleeping in my back garden! i love foxs because they seem a bit mysterious, also there are no foxs in guernsey so while im at uni in england i still get really excited to see one.

very late valentine post

I descided to make steve a present this year for valentines day! I even made the wrapping paper :-) (well actually i drew hearts onto handmade paper but i still think its effective :-p )

steve has an over active imaginationa and a few weeks earlier thought up a funny sceane were there is a squirell wearing night vision goggles. As im not very good at animation i descided to stitch the creature for him....

i think he likes it :-)

he especially likes that he came up with the idea :-) lots of love xx

This Picture is in responce to lovely madebyheather-heather's post about balieys and i would just like to say that mine is so much cooler than yours time a million :-) to start mine has jigsaw ice!! AMAZING and also it is in the most amazing glass EVER! It rocks! Literaly it's a rocking glass (its good for me as i would have knocked this over about 5 times tonight if it hadnt rocked!)

After loosing spectacually Aimie kindly lent me 5 chips which turned into thisssss!!

This is Mr Steves pile! (He didnt need help from Aimie!)

Aimie got a straight (we told her it definatly wouldn't happen)

It was her first game! I would say it was beginners luck but to be fair she had to lend me chips :-s

Heart Paper Chains

This project is finally finished so that i can show it! It seems to have been ages since my last blog!

This is my take on a paper chain!

The hearts come individually and are then buttoned together in what ever combination you like!

Thanks Mr Steve (and my lovely SLR) for helping with the pictures :-)

i hope you like xx
