Day Three- Snail Figurine

I think I’ll be apologising for the poor photo quality every day because my camera is a bit dodgy and I do my crafting at night.  This is a little snail that I made using terracotta airclay and craft wire.

Day 4: city blocks in the spiral

Burpie the Burger

Day 3

Meet Burpie. He is based on a pattern by Nerdigurumi but since I’m a vegetarian, he’s a veggie burger. He is 5 inches tall and very soft and squishy.
