WOYWW week 14

Hello deskers, I’m playing with clay today, buttons for Etsy and some large hearts.  You are probably wondering what the pile of pasterboard is doing, basically it helps the ceramic pieces stay flat while they dry, and it also absorbs moisture.

I will be glazing the buttons but the hearts will be bisque. I’ve been experimenting with scenting the hearts with lavender and rose geranium oils but I’m having a problem getting the scent to stay more than a couple of days. I have tried glycerin as a carrier but that didn’t work so if you have any ideas I’d love to hear from you.

It’s been a busy week, I got my blanket finished , it’s huge and I love it, but my wrists need a rest. I’ve ordered a jacket pattern that has a yoke with one large button, I’d like to add one of my own buttons.

    Hi Jill, put instructions how to scent the back of the hearts with essential oil on the heart string. Then people can scent their own to their own choice. I have found that the quality of the oil makes a lot of difference. The more pure and expensive work best. Regards, Jill Varga

    What a great idea to use plasterboard to absorb moisture. I use air clay a lot and hadn’t thought of using it!!! I love your blanket. I have been crocheting a lot recently and it does play havoc on your wrists doesn’t it!

  5. Those buttons are gorgeous and oh that blanket is just amazing, no wonder your hands need a rest. I once did a blanket like that but not as big

    Oh well done, that blanket is huge…im Too impatient to do such long rows, weirdly, I’d rather sew squares together!! Love the lace effect in the clay.

  12. Oh my goodness what an amazing blanket and so much work it really does look amazing. Oh and those heart buttons are beautiful I would attach instructions for the receiver to scent their own this way they can choose their own fragrance. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful week.

    Happy WOYWW
