1  Re: Welcome To Night Vale Swap in The Swap Gallery by PerfectlyBohemian on: June 03, 2015 06:28:26 AM
Here's one of the two crafted things I sent to Zalphinian. I don't have pictures of the other item with me right now.

Hiram McDaniels, literally a five-headed, needle-felted dragon, complete with poseable head action, each with its own set of glow-in-the-dark polymer clay horn(s). I realized after seeing the wire Hiram earlier in the gallery that I spent too much time looking at fan-art and mistakingly made a red-head instead of a gray-head :/

(sorry for the random crafters in the background. I was at a Sip and Stitch meetup event)

The other item I made was a travel mug cozy. I used purple batik fabric and embroidered an Arby's, radio station with a tower, the NV eye logo, and "Welcome to Night Vale" on it. Use your imagination, if you still have one Wink

I've gotten my package from Zalphinian today Smiley

She decorated a huge tote with one of my favorite quotes that I already used tonight as a project bag as soon as I got home and opened it and then ran off to coffee. She also sent two flour sack towels so that I can proclaim my love for Night Vale in the kitchen or at tea Smiley

3  I don't love you much, do I? Embroidered Hoop in Needlework: Completed Projects by PerfectlyBohemian on: May 25, 2015 04:02:41 PM
One of my very good friends is expecting her first child in a month. As well as a pair of applique fox pillows, I also made her this embroidered hoop to add to a collection that will hang on her baby's nursery. The lyric is from a Guy Clark song that she and her husband always quote to each other. The colors match the baby nursery. My favorite part is the little bee Smiley The border is just a design that I free-handed for this purpose.

And this was the first time I used "made by" labels on something! Smiley I did a loose stitching on the back so that it would be easy to take the needlework off the hoop if she wanted to do something different with it later.

4  Applique Fox Pillows with Quilted Back in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by PerfectlyBohemian on: May 05, 2015 07:51:53 PM
I finally am really getting back into the swing of crafting after a several month hiatus to study for a licensure exam I took in April. These pillows were a gift for a good friend that is expecting her first child this summer. We share a love for all things foxy, and when she showed me a couple of applique fox pillows she found online, I knew exactly what I was making her! Smiley The fabrics are all in the colors she is using for her baby's nursery.

5  Upcycled Felted Sweater Bear Rug Coasters in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by PerfectlyBohemian on: March 09, 2015 05:44:24 PM
I made this delightful set of coasters inspired by many bear rug coasters seen on Etsy/Pinterest for a friend in a local/private craft swap a couple months ago. They are each made with a double layer of machine felted wool sweaters with hand-embroidered face details. Unfortunately my memory card got fried before I took my finished photos of them and after I had given them away, so here are some donated photos from my friend and some photos from my phone camera (sorry for sad quality! Pretend you can tell they have sleepy little eyes). They now live in an art studio where they are getting much great usage!!

Sorry for the delay! Felicity made it back home over the weekend. It looks like she saw a ton of new places and did some neat things! She brought back with her some little animal friends, a Maine magnet, Necco wafers, a ton of maps, and a Cheers button that gets to hang out on her carrying case now.

Oh! And how could I forget. My newest friend (still unnamed) got here just in time to meet Mae before she goes back home!

(Please disregard her hand-me-down clothes. I'll find/make her some proper outfits very soon)

Mae joined me for a walk around "The Blue Loop" at the NC Museum of Art yesterday.

Lots of pretty ice everywhere:

Checked out a yarn shop afterwards. So many pretty colors!

 I've been working on her scrapbook for a couple nights and will hopefully finish up soon.

Mae went out shopping with me yesterday after our lake walk got cancelled due to unrelenting ice on the path. The lake was partially frozen over too:

We went to my favorite garden nursery to find some gifts. There's the coolest greenhouse shop there. The back half has plants, but the front half has a lot of home decor type of gifts. They have nifty non-plant stuff outside too. I really love this place and wish I didn't move so far away Tongue

Not getting too far in the ice, huh?

Sad dying plants are deeply discounted Sad

Inside, we found a Mae-sized bench in the fairy garden section! We also met a very polite bluebird.

They have nifty book letters. We found the last M in a pile near the bottom!

There's also multiple shop cats. Sadly this photo was blurry Sad

It's snowing in Raleigh now. A couple days ago we got a lot of frozen rain or whatever that stuff is Tongue (Being a Florida girl, I'm still new to the winter storms). For some reason my husband made a hole in the ice on our front steps and poured salt down it last night. The ice was quite deep in my opinion! Mae checked is out this morning.

The view wasn't too impressive this morning but maybe tomorrow it will be pretty. Just the driveways and other pavement were still icy:
