I like it, Smeddley! I had been wondering what the blood drops you make were really for, other than cute. Now I think I figured it out...to squeeze with the blood giving arm  Grin Neat! Your other post about this one mentions the 'creepy' Weeping Angels. I agree. i will be crafting one for my daughter's birthday this week out of paperclay...for a Christmas Tree Topper *shivers*. She wanted the one with the reaching-out-to-get-you arms in time for Christmas, but I couldn't bring myself to make it then.  Roll Eyes They are quite popular from what my research on the web showed. I am sure your weeping blood drop will be wonderfully received. Nice of you to share your pattern!

A white paper doily underneath them should do it. Those are beautiful! And a starfish...and a clown fish...and a sea urchin...and a sandcastle...and a seashell... Grin

Great idea, JS. And if you drilled holes in the jug, you could also rinse the berries right in it.  Grin Nice of you to share for others, too.

JoyfulClover, I love your felting idea. I wasn't thinking about the structural integrity. I was thinking to suggest granny square, or other similar project that could use shorter pieces without all the weave in tails. But your idea is better. Or dulcet might want to shread it into small bits to use as stuffing? I love the label...I would save that for scrapbooking, or other collage project  Grin

Taa Daaa!





I scanned the image before I "framed" it, because I figured the scan would be blurry on the final finished piece.
And the entire piece would not fit on the scanning bed. It is a 3-D (purchased) crochet frame. But rest assured, it is a complete heart. My embroidery skills are a bit rusty, but overall, my 'partner' is happy with her new Birthday present  Grin Hope you like it.

I use old/freebie promotional CDs for my gardens. I tie a piece of twine on them through the hole, and hang them on hangers made from wire that I have attached to my trellises. I guess you could also fashion a stick-in-the-dirt sort of wire hanger out of a stiffer wire, like clothes hangers. If the CDs have writing on one side, then I just hang 2 together back to back. (I have also seen gardeners use pie tins in a similar way). They also serve me as a 'wind sock' so I know if I can burn off the brush pile.  Roll Eyes

If beauty is what you are after, PINWHEELS! I have seen some made with metallic backs, especially at Fourth of July time, but I think anything that moves would scare off the birds. You might want to get the kids their own "Special" pinwheels, so they will leave your garden ones in the dirt. Grin

Your idea is neat, though. I might try tieing and stringing some across into a bunting banner type thing on the trellises. My birds don't eat much out of my gardens, but they love to land there and poop!

Great start to our gallery! *Sigh* I miss that card. I better put on more Toto tonight and make myself one  Grin
Where is everyone else's loot? We can't be the only ones who have sent/received?

I love the little kid cards, grapeicepop. So fun that you include them in the excitement of our art.

20  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Altered puzzle pieces, Round 10 SU 6/13-6/27; SO 8/1/15 on: June 21, 2015 12:27:25 PM
Neat! I am glad we are all excited here! I wouldn't mind tiny letters/fonts. The wall I plan mine on is a close-up kind where friends can study things. (Or me, too, for that matter.)

My gesso on my old puzzle bombed. Even though I gessoed carefully with very thin coats, the pieces still spread. Too much stinking work to get them back together. I guess the cardboard is too old, or just of the wrong kind for this. No worries, I can still use them in something else.

So, I found a 40 piecer that I have that will work. The pieces are about the same size as the other puzzle, it will just mean more swaps to complete it, and a larger frame for it. Looks like I will be addicted to these for a while  Grin

I decided I will send the pieces that touch across in two rows on the diagonal. Then I can still frame this batch, and add to it as I get more in other swaps or private trades. And it will still look artistic on the wall as it 'grows'.

Another thought I had (but scrapped for the moment) was to cut my own stinkin' 12 piece puzzle to share, and the darn thing would be complete in one swap!  Wink Backing cereal cardboard both sides with card stock, and cutting the pieces (3 across 4 down) to fit an 8" x 10" frame? I have seen clipart puzzle outlines on the internet that could be used. And thought I might share that idea for us other puzzle geeks.  Roll Eyes I may still try this at a later date.
