31  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / mug hug - peg loom woven on: December 04, 2014 05:33:02 PM

Woven on a peg loom -as a thank you to my Daddy for making me said loom  :-)
Cotton yarn warp, wool weft (varigated yarn), with vintage buttons sewn on (size is adjustable bu doing it up using different buttons to get different lenghts).
Very simple but i was pleased with how it came out.
Thanks for looking!
32  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / 'junker Jane' style art doll; Sea Soaked Sally on: December 04, 2014 05:08:38 PM

I wanted this little one to look like she'd been washed up on a beach. Took inspiration from Tim Burton illustrations & junker Jane dolls. Head/arms/legs are hand dyed linen, body is crayon tinted cotton. then i soaked her repeatedly in salt water  :-)
33  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / 24 little parcels; an advent calander on: December 04, 2014 11:42:53 AM
I collected 24 little silly gifts, and individualy wrapped them to make this advent calander...
I used all sorts of bits of stash paper & ribbon/string to wrap and number each one, some in paper, some in tissue, a couple in fabric - and different lettering & number stamps to lable them - within a sort of shabby chic craft paper with green, red & gold highlights theme

Then i presented them in a box :.an old hinge lid type shoe box, which i covered in brown paper so that the lid still worked, and lined with gold tissue. Then i 'closed' it with an assortment of different twines, and left it to be discovered
34  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / small gift & candy sleighs on: December 04, 2014 11:22:37 AM

I saw candy sleighs on pinterest, and tonight it wad a great way too parcel small gifts, s if they are sitting on the back of santa's sled. I wrapped the gifts in craft paper first, used glue dots (like for mounting photos) to secure the construction - and i get to my parents they will sir in three fake snow at the base of their tree
35  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / rainbow cake topper, and left over beads... my first clay work! on: December 02, 2014 08:13:04 PM

I realise this is crazy simple compared to what you guys do, but i had fun and was happy with the out come; a rainbow cake topper for my friends rainbow theme party


I messed up my first go, all the colours got smooshed together... So i used the messed up clay to make some beads too

Can't think what I'd do with them since they are rather irregular sizes! Oh well, stash them and I'll find a use sooner or later i guess
36  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / monkeying about on: December 02, 2014 06:51:12 PM

A friend was in a production of Inherit the Wind (a play about the score monkey trial) so i made this first night card; it's pretty simple negative space using an old copy of a dawkins book on evolutionary history, embroidered and layered onto card. But I was pleased with the effect  :-)
37  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / The Hermione Award on: December 02, 2014 06:38:30 PM

I designed this to look like a medal or award plaque - hermione in profile done in stem stitch (and lettering the same)... And the filigree thingy boarder is my first go at feather stitch  :-)

It I'd to honour the recipient for being (like hermione) an insufferable know it all... A fine compliment indeed and well worthy of recognition
38  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / my first crayon tint! Old John hoop on: December 02, 2014 06:31:24 PM

Old John is a landmark on the skyline near where i grew up - it's a folly a top a bloody great hill so it's hard to miss!

For this hoop, i stained the fabric to age it, then embroidered the outlines in stem stitch, and had my first go at crayon tinting.. Fun, but I think I'd use the technique differently another time
39  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / If Dorothy Was APunk - ruby slipper DMs on: December 02, 2014 06:23:08 PM
I painted a new pair of plain classic doc martens with red glitter paint

I also replaced the laces with wide satin ribbon in big sloppy bows.

I rubbed them with acetone before painting, and coveted with a layer of leather varnish (the paint was leather paint, specialised for shoes) to limit wear. But i didn't want to eliminate wear entirely as my style is a bit beat up.  I painted these more than a year ago... I wear them most days for work.... And i get more compliments on thrm noe tjan ever  :-)
This is them now

I love them. I love that they are a bit battered - every cease is a memory of a year well spent!
40  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / community made calendar (picture fat!) on: November 07, 2014 07:46:43 AM

on another website where I socialise, a do a thing called holiday gift giving, where regular members post lists of small gifts they might like to receive (eg used stamps, a particular kind of candy, stationary etc).and people send what they can to each other, just as a nice thing to do and be party of. One girl, who I've had.a few good interactions with, asked for a calendar with nice pictures....


So I asked around the site and got different people to contribute 12 'nice pictures' which I compiled into a calendar... I told them the size of their picture, allocated months to illustrate, and suggested themes that the recipient might like... But left the rest up to them

I collected the images people made, and drew out the date chats, added a few embellishments, made the cover and had lots of fun!

It goes in the post tomorrow, I hope she likes it!
