Add you pictures to this thread!

Admin/Mods - if you don't want it in this forum then please move it to somewhere more appropriate, thanks

I am stupid! I didn't put the date in the subject line and I can't seem to edit it! Note it should say week ending Friday 4 January 2013, sorry. Maybe an admin can change it for me?

Thanks. The knives and forks were in a light cube off Ebay with two sides lights - one each side. The left hand one had a piece of red cloth in front of it.

I especially like the colour in the last one. What did you use for the black based?
Just some plain black card ( i make cards as well ( well use to ) so have loads of different card stock)

Eeeek just realised there' only 2 days til Friday and I haven't attempted yet, although I have a few ideas. I know there's no firm cut off date but I'd like to get photos in by the end of each week. I will have a play tomorrow.

Carving fork (Laithwaites wines circa Dec 2012), Spaghetti fork (battery inside which turns blade), BBQ fork, Salad fork (from Africa)
Fondue forks, Corn on the cob forks, Wooden salad forks
