1  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / fused glass pendants on: September 14, 2014 06:46:24 AM
so excited to do my first fused glass, and can't wait to do more.

Made these simple pendants with scraps from the bigger project and love how they look and feel.  Have happily gifted them already.

2  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Robot fused glass on: August 13, 2014 04:26:50 PM
I finally took a fused glass class recently and loved it.  One of my projects was this robot.  I love robots.  I'm really happy with it.  The instructor's idea to use clear glass on the grey for the eyes and chest panel worked out great.  I can't wait to do more projects.  And try slumping.

3  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / felted soap on: August 05, 2014 06:49:48 PM
I just had to try it, and it was super easy and fun.  When you use just run under water and gentle rubbing lathers it up!

youtube indeed has a video showing you how to do anything.



I think I'll make a few for fun little gifts.
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / luna moth page on: July 25, 2014 01:04:25 PM
I made this for Wulf in the fabric art journal page
It's felted in greens and browns, and then I designed and stitched a little luna moth.
simple and I think unique.  I want to do more like this.
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / moss spirits on: July 08, 2014 09:23:05 AM
I felted some moss spirits and added them to this strip of rough bark for a wallhanging

6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Teesha Moore style wall hanging on: July 03, 2014 07:44:48 PM
These are my first TM squares, and I made the into a little kitchen wallhanging for a friend.  I am addicted, love these, though I wonder if she will or if it just looks like a five year old made it lol.

7  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / wee felted owl on spools on: June 21, 2014 07:09:46 PM
for the altered spool swap I found these tiny wooden spools, so I stacked two to make a tree stump, added a little felted bark, made a little felted owl for the top, used some glass bead eyes I had, and then felted a rock for a base.

8  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / World Pride in Toronto on: May 03, 2014 07:46:42 AM
In celebration of WorldPride coming to Toronto this year, the Toronto Dyke March organizers have added a project for women to gather and craft together, or send in contributions, for a crafty banner.  All additions welcome!  Think 5x5 squares in crochet, knit, embroidery, cross stitch, or extra shapes.  If you're in Toronto come to a meet up each Wednesday at the Yorkville Library 6-8.  If you're not, check it out and mail in something to add!

9  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / felted rocks on: May 01, 2014 04:47:25 PM
OK it sounds weird, but trust me, a rock covered in seamless felt feels good in the hand and looks pretty sweet.

I have done dry needlefelting for a few years.  I never tried wet felting before this project.  I collected smooth palm sized rocks from the beach, wrapped the in wool roving, dunked in hot water, drizzled dish soap on, massaged/squeezed /worked them until the wool all shrank into itself, rinsed, let dry.

And here they are!



My favourite is the blues.

I wanted to try a bit of embellishment, so made wide simple stitches in beautiful metallic thread on the white one



and some shorter stitches and then some little beads on the brown one



I was thrilled with the whole experience, going to do more this weekend.

and here is my inspiration pin

Try it!
10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Hamilton "the hammer" Ontario on: May 01, 2014 04:21:46 PM
In the hoopla places swap my partner was from nearby Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.  The city has a few nicknames, my favourite is the hammer.  So I stitched this skyline/hammer hoop up for her. 

I really like it, I feel like my design worked well and really represented my style.
