1  Re: Monthly Dotee Swap - JUNE OCEAN GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by blupaisan on: July 03, 2015 10:56:22 AM
dulcet chose my starfish request and did a different take on the phrase and I am tickled pink with the results!!

The face is adorable, very gentle looking. The hundreds of scales are mesmerizing and stunning!!!

The tail fins are some sort of ribbony substance that if I had in my own stash, I would NEVER give up!!  I love it!

back shows all the wonderful turquoise color and a silver shell thingie that for some reason is totally off color in this pic.  Sweet dangle at bottom with real shell.

thank you so much, dulcet. she is awesome!!!!

Received this truly wonderful piece from millkeway!!!!!!!!!!  This deserves many many more exclamation points than I put.

Want to show all kinds of angles!  teeny water and food bowl, tiny ball of yarn. Adorbs!

Up close of the wee black one. Sort of choked up when I saw him, as I turned one just like him in to our local shelter yesterday and I will miss him so much. But he was homeless and will be ok now

All sorts of lovely turquoise colors everywhere!!  And note the fishy wallpaper.

The kitty tower is just amazing. And the play stick with the tiniest feather on the end, swoooooon!!

thank you so much, milkeway. Really cannot express how happy I am with this.

4  Re: The next One Tiny Thing...Cat Hats... in New Swap Theme Ideas by blupaisan on: June 16, 2015 05:49:01 AM
My one-eyed cat would wear a hat. He has worn a curly blond doll wig and Darth Tater's helmet, so I think he would tolerate a hat. I have plans to stick a big googly eye over his missing eye and take some pictures (I saw someone else online did this to their cat and it was hilarious) so I think it would be even better with a fancy hat.

My cat wouldn't wear a hat, but she has been known to sport falsies...

5  This tree grows books in Needlework: Completed Projects by blupaisan on: June 09, 2015 04:07:33 AM
Designed this hoop for the Summer Activities swap. My partner likes to read a book under a tree during this season.

tried two times to stitch on her Tshirt  I <3 Books but there was not enuf room. so it reads I <3 Book.  Oh well...

Some of the 'fruits'...

If I were a skier, I would be headed toward the beginner trails.  Same here. So it took me a loooong time to finish this. But after gluing tiny bits of book pages on the hoop...

I realized that the gluing took as long as the stitching did!

Used my fave childhood  book to cover the back. did not have a real saw, so used a small drywall saw.

thanks for looking!  I Heart Book!

8  Seriously 3D ATC swap (signups 05/24/15 - 06/01/15; mail by 06/22/15) in ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED by blupaisan on: May 24, 2015 12:33:47 PM

Creation credit - sheepBlue

Join us for a 3D twist on ATC making!!  This is not an ongoing swap in the usual ATC manner. This is a make one (or two) and send it to your partner(s) after 3 weeks. That is the most time requested by one of our hopeful participants so we will do that time frame.

The general idea of a 3D ATC is to have a base or framework that does NOT exceed the regular 2.5 by 3.5 ATC size. Here are some links to examples of ideas and inspiration...

cmarion3 chose my Little  House On the Prairie theme and created Laura's precious doll...

She also included the passage from the book which describes her...

Her hair was black yarn that had been knit and raveled so it was curly. She had little red flannel stockings and little black gaiters for shoes and her dress was pretty calico.

And here she has wee button eyes!  I love this card sooo much!!  Thank you, cmarion3!!

Zut alors, she has emerged!  (five points for Gryffindor if anyone can id that quote...)

what I mean to say is my bird arrived from the UK today. P_E_S_T created this kingfisher wonder which I am currently wearing around my neck (temporarily, as I am housesitting with two active dogs and they may go for it...)

so many awesome bits and details, including these 3 dangles at the bottom...

I am so happy to own this piece of art. Thank you so much, P_E_S_T !!
