Rec'd (in person which is always fun because my partner gets to see my face when I open it) from Acadian Driftwood.
She chose my Kenya theme and created a Maasai tribe mommi!!

Oh my goodness, all of the colors and happy faces of this dotee make me smile!!
Up close of the gorgeous necklace, wherein the outermost light and dark strand indicates the border fence...

And her wee baby napping in the sling....

I love the details of the decorative fabric and the tiny button zebra.

rscowtown claimed me for one notified thing and also a surprise.
first up, a Nantucket drink cosy that I adore!!


Then she surprised me and got me something for my elderly kitty. DandiGirl loves to scratch cardboard and her old piece fell apart. here she is on her new one, which she sat on 10 seconds after I showed it to her. She loves it!!  poor dear got shaved last week so she was ready to be spoiled.

I am gonna put a touch of nip on it this eve and she will claw the thing up, purring.
thank you so much, rscowtown!!

I also joined the Setting the Miniature Scene swap. My partner indicated that she had been planning to create an out-of-doors fairy  home space, all sort of open, involving the roots of a Sycamore as they spread along the edge of a certain river.  She needed some inspiration to get this project going, so I made 5 small mostly natural items to start her off....

Potted plant for deck. Birchbark is the pot, some sort of odd grass (lumpy and spiky) got colored with paint to be flowers. Penny to show size.

painted rock doorstop. A kitty of course!!  Also on a penny for ref.

ladder that will go from one set of roots to the next

pull-string outdoor light for edge of deck. pole is porcupine quill, shade is acorn top. Twirled an embroidery thread to make string more interesting. It is stuck in a tomato because it will be stuck directly into dirt, or wedged into roots, thus has no base.  Tomato served me well.

diving board that will be just above river.  birch bark board with grapevine spring.

Shows it upright.

This is my favorite. I found a deceased dragonfly in the road. I painted her and put a grapevine spring on bottom and tiny handle on top. She is now one of those bouncy riding toys you see tots riding at the park!

I made a temporary rider for her out of wire and stuff to show the action fun!

Really looking forward to putting these and about 50 more pieces in the final display.

dulcet chose my starfish request and did a different take on the phrase and I am tickled pink with the results!!

The face is adorable, very gentle looking. The hundreds of scales are mesmerizing and stunning!!!

The tail fins are some sort of ribbony substance that if I had in my own stash, I would NEVER give up!!  I love it!

back shows all the wonderful turquoise color and a silver shell thingie that for some reason is totally off color in this pic.  Sweet dangle at bottom with real shell.

thank you so much, dulcet. she is awesome!!!!

Received this truly wonderful piece from millkeway!!!!!!!!!!  This deserves many many more exclamation points than I put.

Want to show all kinds of angles!  teeny water and food bowl, tiny ball of yarn. Adorbs!

Up close of the wee black one. Sort of choked up when I saw him, as I turned one just like him in to our local shelter yesterday and I will miss him so much. But he was homeless and will be ok now

All sorts of lovely turquoise colors everywhere!!  And note the fishy wallpaper.

The kitty tower is just amazing. And the play stick with the tiniest feather on the end, swoooooon!!

thank you so much, milkeway. Really cannot express how happy I am with this.

9  Re: The next One Tiny Thing...Cat Hats... in New Swap Theme Ideas by blupaisan on: June 16, 2015 05:49:01 AM
My one-eyed cat would wear a hat. He has worn a curly blond doll wig and Darth Tater's helmet, so I think he would tolerate a hat. I have plans to stick a big googly eye over his missing eye and take some pictures (I saw someone else online did this to their cat and it was hilarious) so I think it would be even better with a fancy hat.

My cat wouldn't wear a hat, but she has been known to sport falsies...

10  This tree grows books in Needlework: Completed Projects by blupaisan on: June 09, 2015 04:07:33 AM
Designed this hoop for the Summer Activities swap. My partner likes to read a book under a tree during this season.

tried two times to stitch on her Tshirt  I <3 Books but there was not enuf room. so it reads I <3 Book.  Oh well...

Some of the 'fruits'...

If I were a skier, I would be headed toward the beginner trails.  Same here. So it took me a loooong time to finish this. But after gluing tiny bits of book pages on the hoop...

I realized that the gluing took as long as the stitching did!

Used my fave childhood  book to cover the back. did not have a real saw, so used a small drywall saw.

thanks for looking!  I Heart Book!
