1  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.

2  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.
3  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.
4  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

5  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.

6  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.

7  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!

8  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

9  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.
