2  Hagrid's Hut in Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects by pottermouth on: February 09, 2016 02:44:27 PM
Here is my second free-motion embroidery made for the enchanting tapestrymlp:

While searching for ideas, I came across Stuart Craig's concept art and knew right away that I wanted to free-motion embroider the drawing. It has that sketchy look that I love, and I try to emulate that when I hand embroider things. But this image seemed like a good candidate for another go at free-motion embroidery, my second attempt, and I thought it could always be pitched if I screwed it up and then just hand embroider the thing. From having done it once before, I decided to order a darning foot for the sewing machine and save myself a lot of fidgety hassle. Man, that made a HUGE difference! And I didn't sew over my fingers. Yay. The finished piece fits into an 8x10 frame (I sent that, too. Who wants an unfinished project?) and stole that first picture from tapestrymlp.

That pic mine. can't you tell?

Lessons learned-

1. Breaking down and spending that whopping $9 on the darning foot made free-motion embroidery so much easier. Who would've thought?

2. Sewing shadows is hard.

HERE is what she sent me!  Kiss

Feast your eyes on this beauty and be super duper jealous:

WHOA! That's incredible! tapestrymlp painted a moment from "The Tale of the Three Brothers", where the first brother requests an unbeatable wand from Death.

She also sent along a Hogwarts badge and a sweet card. I feels so special. Thank you very much, tapestry, I LOVE it!

YennaMuffin sent me a glorious snitch for my Harry Potter theme. Its colours are rich and shimmery, but I failed to capture the details. Thanks for the lovely card!

Here is my terrific Historical Fiction card from blupaisan!

She writes: In it's third week of operation, the first-ever (gas powered) London traffic light explodes. Bobbie injured.

I love that she titled the card Epic Fail 1869. Hopefully the bobby hadn't been seriously injured, because I find blu's depiction of the event comical. Thank you for the great card!

7  House of Alice Paper Theatre in Completed Projects by pottermouth on: January 06, 2016 06:00:34 PM
This month's theme over at Alpha Stamps is Valentine Paper Theatre, and somehow Alice in Wonderland came to mind. Maybe it's The Queen's hearts and all of that red that got me thinking it was a good idea. So, I built a tiny 5.5" x 5.5" theatre to display a handful of Alice's memorable moments.

Because the theatre is 1" deep, it made it easy to create interchangeable panels that slide in the back to create little scenes. Here's how my mini play went:

And a few more, but you get the idea. It was an entertaining project and I'm secretly having fun changing out the different scenes.

9  Decked Out Whomping Willow in Needlework: Completed Projects by pottermouth on: December 12, 2015 08:41:52 PM
A little whomping willow ornament for edelC in the Harry Potter Holiday 4 Swap. It has been decorated with seed beads in House colors and was topped with a tiny star. (Good thing there aren't presents under it; you'd never get to them!)

Going to share my potterific ornaments (and a bonus!) from my dear friend AugustBell, and be prepared to be jealous! First unwrapped was a fun bottle of Skele-Gro! My HP tree is lacking potions of all sorts, so this was a much needed addition!

My fave potion is Babbling Beverage, the concoction that makes the drinker babble utter nonsense, which I think is hilarious. Yay!!!

And then a little surprise that I do not deserve. She made me the world's best needle minder! He's the cutest thing ever! Well now I'm just going to have to go and stitch something up with this little guy.

Oh my, I can't wait for kid #1 to arrive tomorrow so we can get the HP tree decorated together but I think I'd better keep my eye on her, she's likely to filch all my treasures! Thank you dear AugustBell, Mistress Jennie, and edelC; you've made my holiday a magical one!  Kiss
