931  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: Mind Your Needles, Monster on: April 02, 2015 03:45:09 PM
Love them!  I definitely need some of these... just last night I was sure I'd lost my needle (in my bed!), but luckily I'd pushed it through the edge of the fabric outside the hoop.  I'm not always so good about it, though...

And the monsters are so cute!

Ha, I think you should certainly keep this thread around until Halloween... it was so much fun and I did realize I need more zombie craft in my life...  it could be the "shambling towards Halloween zombie craft-along". Cheesy

...no need to keep counting uses of the word zombie, though, because that would just be crazy. Cheesy

Thank you for putting up something so fun for April Fools!

Worked on something for a few hours last night and am iffy on it. Might scrap it, we'll see... I hate indecision!

phizzychick, I was remiss in not saying how great that ring holder is!

crazyda79, great zombie projects all, but that zombie pillowcase is awesome!

suereal, oh no!  I'd say run, but I fear it might be too late...  uh, shamble over in that direction, okay?  Wink

So I looked back at my old projects (yay for the yearly craftalongs hosted by someone AWESOME that keeps it all handy) and I have done some zombie things!  Not nearly enough, though.  My zombie craft projected percentage is woefully low, especially considering my love of zombie movies!

Plants vs Zombies hoop for a swap:



Bellydance costume bag for said Zombie Me costume, with a designed and hand-cut stencil!



Aforementioned original zombie fairy artwork:

Oh, actually, yes, I do! I downloaded the pictures from the Zombie Walk facebook page... they went a little overboard with the blood, you had a choice of a little or a lot, apparently the "lot" this Zombie Walk meant "we're going to try to drown the zombies before they can devour anything on the walk" (can you drown a zombie? I wouldn't think so...)  To this day my key fob (which was tied to my costume) is a bit sticky...



That was my zombie bellydance costume, as well, but the blood made it a little pink, so it won't match my partner's costume anymore... we'll have to make new zombie costumes if we revive the Zombie Me dance (oh, darn, more costume making?! Wink )

Your zombies go up to 11!

I love zombie crafts, and zombie bellydance!  I've done a zombie duet dance to the song Zombie Me, and was a zombie bellydancer in the last Zombie Walk.  I also drew a zombie fairy eons ago... and there's a zombie cross stitch pattern I adore but would never be able to get done today, so I went back to zombie sketches for my zombie craft... I may someday paint them, or not... I like the rough pencil sketch look, too! (That's at least 10 zombies!)

937  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Compost pile sculpture swap, anyone? on: April 01, 2015 08:58:37 AM
Does it have to be from an "official" compost pile? I don't keep one, but there's a corner of my yard where miscellaneous leaves and debris pile up and decompose that has some very promising colors developing.  I'm thinking with a decent binder it would make a very pretty abstract sculpture!

Another question, though, could we also use a few bits of non-compostable recycling? Like if you wanted a small fountain, could you repurpose some tin cans? I know the bulk of it should be compost, but I'm not sure about getting it watertight...

Artsycandice, I'm not sure about cabbage leaves, but I think celery strings could be put to good use for something that would get as much wear as a wallet!

Quick simul-post with my last minute March Nerd Games submissions:

Passport for Wish Bear
My Aunt is staking a trip to Fiji and while I would have loved t send my Little Visitor, I really don't feel right letting him out of my sight, especially not on a trip that far!  The solution was to get an LV just for her - and I made him a passport so he'd be legal going in and out of the country.  My Aunt joked that now in addition to being an international arms dealer (long story, also involves Fiji, the post office, and a bow), I'm now a forger.  I said that's why he doesn't have a US Passport, but rather a Kingdom of Caring passport... can you "forge" something that doesn't exist?



Pet Rocks (the Nerd Game Prompt was for a craft from the decade you were born)
Why did I have to be born in the 70s?!  The decade that gave us such wonders and macrame ponchos and the couch dress... Anyway, the least "eh" thing I could come up with in a hurry - and that I might actually want - was pet rocks.  I thought I could whip out a dozen to leave around in an hour, instead, the five I did took over two hours!  Why is nothing fast?!  I put several coats of paint on each, painted the mouths, glued on the eyes, and then crocheted little "wigs" from bits of leftover scrap yarn in my waste yarn fishbowl, which I also glued on.  Four were left out in the wild (of the shopping area) today, my LV Anana took a liking to the fifth and will be keeping it.  And now I've found an adorable monster pet rocks picture and want to make more for abandoned art bits...



Pi day buttons and Pies
This year was a super pi day, and I celebrated with some Pi buttons I made as well as four types of Pie.

Anana adopted one of the pet rocks we made for the Nerd Games and were going to leave around in our walk today... I think this one will be staying with us!
