Messer Nr. 16/Knife No 16

Dieses hübsche kleine Messer habe ich bisher auch noch nicht gezeigt und dabei ist es ein wirkliches Schmuckstück. Messer Nr. 16 hat eine nicht rostfreie Damastklinge, einen Griff aus Birke mit roten Linern, Stahlnieten und einem 12 mm Mosaikpin von Pit Wagner. Die Gesamtlänge beträgt 15 cm.

I never showed you this beautiful little knife, although this one is a real gem. Knife no 16 has a damascene blade, a handle made from birch Wood, red liners, steel rivets and a 12 mm mosaic pin by Pit Wagner. The overall length is 15 cm.

Die von mir handgefertigte Lederscheide besteht aus 3mm starkem Rindsleder und wurde bordeauxrot eingefärbt und komplett punziert. Alles in allem also ein kleines Kunstwerk.

The leather sheath is handmade by me from 3mm cowhide, dyed bordeaux red and completely tooled. All together a little piece of art.

Seaside Winter Blanket CAL: Port Shepstone

I'm a bit behind with sharing the wonderful squares of the Seaside Winter Blanket CAL Zooty Owl is Hosting for us. Post Shepstone is regular square no 6 and the first large one in this CAL. Isn't this GORGEOUS?

I enjoyed making this square during my week off work, as a little treat when I finished the dues I had planned for the day. Here's the very beginning:

I was sitting by my small pond and watching the dragonflies. Can you imagine that those amazing critters hatch from such "ugly" larvae? This is the empty hull of one of the big ones, which is left behind once the dragonfly took off. To me they are not ugly, but very uselful keeping my pond mosquito free.

Seaside Winter Blanket CAL: Southbroom

I just realized that I forgot to share bonus square 2 with you, which is called Southbroom. Zelna posted this lovely square for her birthday and I so enjoyed making it. There are also several additional patterns like a lapghan, a poncho etc. Thanks, Zelna!

And here is Southbroom surrounded by all the other squares which I made so far for the Seaside Winter Blanket CAL. So in love with them!

Seaside Winter Blanket CAL: Margate

Quadrat Nr. 5 des Seaside Winter Blanket CAL heißt Margate und dieses Quadrat sieht wirklich wie ein buntes Glasfenster aus. Das Bild wurde spät abends gemacht, als es schon dunkel war.
Square No 5 of the Seaside Winter Blanket CAL is called Margate and I love how the stained glass effect from my colors is coming out in this square. This pic was taken at late night, when it was already dark.
