1  Simple landscape in Needlework: Completed Projects by Belladune on: June 06, 2015 07:35:56 PM


This was just a vision, that started with handmade felt. I made the green grass and blue sky out of wool (and hot water and agitation), and then stitched the flowers with a combination of backstitch, daisy stitch (I don't think that's the proper name, but you make daisies out of it. It also makes cute leaves) and french knots.  The cloud is couched embroidery thread. I used a gold filament to secure it.  And then I painted the frame to match!



Hope you enjoy!

2  mmm batts in Spinning: Completed Projects by Belladune on: May 26, 2015 12:05:24 PM
My friend started raising angora bunnies!! It's absolutely the best things since sliced bread. More fluff for me!
This batt is 75% BFL and 25% angora bunny. It's dreamy.


And I made a great big pile of these ones, but they are just merino wool, and the colors are layered. So, depending on which way I roll them, you either see the dark grey, or the aqua.  There's also a light grey in between them.




I've been sneaking in 30minutes to an hour everyday to play with my drum carder, so watch for more!!

3  A couple big Skeins of handspun <3 in Spinning: Completed Projects by Belladune on: May 23, 2015 07:41:50 AM
Two big skeins, that I haven't measured yet, but I started with about 8 ounces of fibre.  I dyed the merino top, and it felted up a bit, so I ran it through my drum carder

Here are the yarns:




This is what it looked like in batt form (there were lots of them, but these are two good examples:



And a little update on the yarns I posted last week.  This is how they look now that I'm knitting them:

I'll give it it's own thread later, once it's finished.

Thanks for looking!

(gah! I don't know why they are sideways!!  They aren't on my computer...)

We are most certain due for a fibre friday!! Gorgeous work, Calluna!

Here's my biggest project finished up! This is the yarn for my final project for level 4 of the Master spinners program. I've washed, flicked, blended, carded and spun up the most gorgeous Est D'laine Merino. The brown/fawn coloured is the natural color, and the darkest in the portion of the fleece I bought.  I blended it with silk noils.  The purple is percentage dyed to achieve the color gradation. And the purple is achieved using 25% red, and 75% blue Jacquard acid dyes. So far, this project has taken nearly 50 hours, so I'm so hoping I can fill the last 25 hours with knitting and blocking.... >.<






Otherwise, this pile of tiny skeins have been taking up a fair share of my time too... And that's not all of them!



And that's truly not all, I have a few more skien done, but I haven't taken any pictures or anything, and I'm running out of time to post today!

5  Meet Agatha and Enri in Felting: Completed Projects by Belladune on: April 12, 2015 07:32:39 AM
These two were made for Alwaysinmyroom in the Geezers Alive and Kicking swap.  Their bodies are both fully needle felted, and their jackets (well, Enri's shell) are wet felt. Agatha also sports a black jumpsuit.  She's jointed, so she can be posed a little bit.





Here's a look at what she looked like before i added her hair and put her arms and legs on.



Thanks for looking!

 Grin  My piece from Oddacity!

I love it.  It's beaded on handspun, with hand made, hand embroidered and beaded felt.  It's great! And I can wear it long, or short! Very versatile




Thanks Oddacity!!

10  Paleo friendly Apple Cake-ina-Cup in Dessert by Belladune on: March 10, 2015 09:08:32 AM
I've been having mad cravings for cake or cookies or muffins lately, and seeing as my body detests grains of all kinds I was glad to see a post by The Paleo Mom on Facebook for a paleo version of the mug cakes you see all the time.

I adjusted the recipe just a tiny bit to my liking by adding just a pinch of baking soda (gluten and corn free, of course) omitting the nuts (why add more nuts when you're using almond flour? jmho) and chose to use maple syrup instead of honey. (the first 4 times... the 5th time I used honey, and it seemed to settle on the bottom a bit, making the bottom a weird texture... maybe I didn't stir it enough.) 
I've also learned that you need to be sure to use a larger mug... But it sure does kick those cake cravings right in the bum!
