apliqued onesies, love the good witch bad witch one the best  Smiley  can't wait to get a pic of the babe in it, with one of those inquisitive looks at me Smiley

Nursing pads, poppy brooch and cowardly lion soother leash.

diaper bag wristlet, just the right size for a couple dipes and wipes

342  Re: Secret Santa 2009 Swap Party Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Belladune on: December 19, 2009 09:04:48 AM
eee!  my secret Santa is sg1psychopath!!!! wooo! 
She made me things off my list!  They are exactly the right colors.  And will match my dining set perfectly!

what I see when I open the box (minus the card Wink )

the "everything"  a Table runner, placemats, cloth napkins with napkin holders, dark chocolates (mmmmm dark chocolate  Grin ), some pretty candles and a monster.

Table runner and a placemat and a napkin in action with my wonderful model.

the reverse side (sorry the pics sideways.... Undecided)  but its the spanky side, so it will be used for fancier parties Smiley  I like that I can use it two ways  (and yes it needs to be pressed... once I go to use it, it will be Smiley)

and the monster, modeled by my 4.5 year old Smiley  Shortly after this pic was taken all sorts of hillarity insued, when the cat got a hold of it ..... chasing and diving for the monster... to much fun!   

It is a wonderful package and I love it!!  We are the only people who ever invite people over for diner parties, because I think its fun to entertain.  So all this will be used often! 

thank you thank you thank you!!!

ETA: the monster totally reminds me of the whatsit my grandma had once upon a time... Which looks pretty much exactly like him, only hers was a bit smaller.  I love him Smiley

i recieved my thank you "card" from elociNNicole...... zomg... it's such a wonderful "card"!!!!  definitly not what I was expecting, being a non birthday swapper, but wow! Thank YOU Nicole!
We are both alergic to alpaca, so she sent me some alpaca free fiber!  It's all so lovely and soft and wonderful! and the big blue batt is going to look soooooooooo good as a nuno felted scarf...  yummmmm Smiley  still not sure what to do with the pink, but I think it'll look good as a chunky art yarn!

sorry for the computer pics... I'll try and get better pics later.. I was to excited to share my thank you "card"!

344  Sisters and Nephews birthday cakes in Dessert by Belladune on: November 12, 2009 09:47:53 AM
My Nephew and My sisters birthdays are 9 days apart.  I was put in charge of both cakes Smiley  My sis helped me out with the Pablo cake, and decided fondant is not nearly as terrible to work with as she expected.   That's what I told her Smiley
Her cake was her favorite color and flower.  She turned 30 btw... I just didn't paint the number on her cake

Nephews cake:

346  International day of felt! - post your pictures here in Felting: Completed Projects by Belladune on: October 03, 2009 09:37:46 AM
October 3rd was marked as the fisrt ever International day of Felt!!
I, personally, am trying to use it as a means of reaching out to my community to see if there are any other crafty/artsy types out here.  The population is less then 300 in town with a few hundred others spread out ruraly.  There has to be at least one or two others lol.
Lets start at my house:
My first ever nuno felted item.  it is a rectangle with limitless possibilities, and may end up becoming a cowl -if it doesn't end up buggy, but its quite cool out so I think maybe the bugs are sleeping now Smiley.  

In the background of this one you can see my door knob hanger:

Here it is up close and personal!

Next stop is the locally owned grocery store,  Another of the "door" hangers, hung on the bars, so that it wont get caught in the door and get wrecked.  I did stick tags on it with a link to FeltUnited.com, and my info on the back, in hopes someone might take one and call me inquiring further into felting.

And lastly the bank.  I also made the ladies some rope necklaces, but did not get pictures of those.
good shot of the flower:

good shot of the bowl:

and the display as I put it out.  they also had some of thier information on the table for a gas give away... but eh, can't fight to much right?  besides, my flower makes it look all look really pretty!

have a happy international day of felt!

okay, so that's what a top view of it looks like, right?  see the right most portion, where the shaft (that's my technical term) of the flyer comes out the bobbin and onto the holder upper thingy?  you should beable to just lift the shaft directly up.  It'll feel stiff, like it doesn't want to let go, but it will.

348  from pink to bubbles :D in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by Belladune on: September 27, 2009 11:09:11 AM
So our bathroom was pink.... pink walls, pink curtains... very pink. now don't get me wrong I like pink, but not in my bathroom, not in that quantity anyway.

Here's the result of a couple cans of paint:

sorry, this ones dark... but it give a fuller view of the bubbles.
Here's a

before/during in which you can still see the pink:

this is as finished as the bathroom will get for a while.  I just really couldn't stand the pink bathroom... next redo we will have the tub and toilet moved, and a new vanity and new floors... Good thing my hubbys a plumber.... Cheesy  But for now a couple cans of paint will do.  And belive you me, there will be bubbles in the next re-do too!

k sleeping beauty drum carder, made in New Zealand
Don't know many specifics and the lady selling doesn't seem to know much about it, but she did send me a pic.  here it is:

Doesn't look to me like a very fine cloth, but I've never seen a carder up close and personal.  But the finer the cloth the more I'll beable to do with it, right?  She wants 300$ for it, but I'd dicker with her, so hopefully I could manage to get it for that much including shipping or perhaps less....
whatcha think?

So here it is in all its fibery goodness. 2 pots of dye (red and yellow for the big international day of felt)  Glaubers salt, Orvus paste(both of which are supposed to get me more even results, which will be wonderful!)  Tussah silk-2oz from the silk weaving place on granville, and about 5 oz (50grams each) of assorted colored merino wool from Shoppel Wolle on granvile island.  Yum Smiley
