    Whether it's for your job or outside of work, post a picture (or a few) of something you've made.

    After spending some time making this while on placement, I came back to uni to be part of our Formula SAE team. Last year didn't go too great, but we've just got back from Formula Student UK with our newest car, where we made up for a bad start on Saturday (last place in two events in the wet) to claim 11th in the endurance event and 21st overall out of 79.

    Overhead Garage Storage

    Posted this in the last purchased thread as I did purchase all the materials to make it, but seems right to put it here as well.

    That's very cool. Is that the first/only set you've made or do you do it for a living?

    What you see is all I've made so far. I built the snare drum and about 2-1/2 years later built the rest of the set.

    Snare: 4x12
    Rack tom: 7x10
    Floor tom 1: 9x12
    Floor tom 2: 12x14
    Bass: 16x20

    This is a decorative window blind, in "shabby chic" fashion, that I made based on a pattern by the multi-talented British designer Kaffe Fassett. I bumped into the idea in Kaffe's 2003 book "Passionate Patchwork" and it was one of those things that just inspired me to drop everything else and try it. I'm sure Kaffe Fassett has had that effect on a zillion quiltmakers over the years. He is one of the UK's national treasures by now for sure.

    The curtain's basic unit is essentially made by applying an irregular square of a light fabric to a larger and true square of a print fabric, then trimming away the print inside the seam allowance on the reverse. The seam allowances of the two fabrics frame the light pieces, and so draw attention to their charming irregularity. The hardest thing about it is letting yourself be five years old and cut unsquare squares for the interiors of the blocks.

    I use this curtain in a window in my studio that gets too much sun in the forenoon during the summer. If you light the room in which this kind of curtain hangs, and can look at it from outside the house at night, it's stunning, no matter whether a delicate or bolder color scheme is selected for the larger squares.
