1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Jelly Bean Jerusalem now on You Tube on: March 25, 2014 10:16:30 AM
Hi fellow Craftsters!

I just wanted to update you all on the Jerusalem painting I did in jelly beans. Just recently received an email asking me about it and what happened to it. Which is why I am posting this update. As far as I know it is still waiting in the wings to be hung at The Mid-Island JCC (Jewish Community Center) in Plainview, NY. The lobby is still under construction and so the painting is stored somewhere in the building till the lobby work is completed. I did go there and rework the mid section of the painting so as to get rid of the seam that ran thru it. Didn't get to take a picture tho...waiting till it is framed and hung.

Another thing I was prompted to do was to post a video of the "making of Jerusalem" on You Tube (not all that user friendly - still can't get the "reply" window to open up for me ), and so after working all morning on the video I was finally able to get to post my video.

You can access here:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zcs0Khvhq7Q

Thanks for all your kind words and encouragement thru out the entire process!

hugs,

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / 4 dolls in one!! 4 fairy tale characters with lots of accessories on: August 29, 2013 05:11:56 AM
This is a knitted topsy turvy doll that is also 4 dolls in one. She becomes 4 fairy tale characters:

Mother Hubbard: holding an empty dog bowl and her pet dog (also foto showing back of her)
Little Red Ridinghood's poor sick Grandma
Little Miss Muffet: holding her bowl of curds and whey and a friendly spider beside her
Little Red Ridinghood: carrying a basket of fruit/cakes and flowers to poor ailing Grandma

There are also fotos here showing the 2 dolls at once, lying down. One foto shows you the Mother Hubbard face that is not wearing glasses while the other foto shows you the same doll flipped on its back (not turned upside down but turned on its back) and which is showing you Lilttle Red Ridinghood's Grandma who IS wearing glasses...done so as to give you an idea of how it works.
One head has two faces. The head gear that the dolls are wearing help hide the other character's face. There is also a foto of all the accessories I needed to knit for all the characters. This was a fun porject...my way of relaxing. Hope you like 'em and thanks for stopping by!

5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Jelly Bean painting - Infant Sea on: August 08, 2013 03:48:03 PM
I thought I had posted this here but I searched the entire forum and it's not here so guess I didn't. In any case I have been asked if I did any other jelly paintings so I thought to add this in. It is the only other JB painting I did; it was done 4 yrs ago. This one is my favorite one because I love how the ocean shows graceful movement. The painting took me 2 mos to do and was wonderful fun. It is 5 ft across while Jerusalem is 8 ft across. But this painting which I have named "Infant Sea" is a tad bit different than Jerusalem because I employed other edibles in it as well the jelly beans. Look closely!



6  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / Do a "materials" challenge not a theme. on: May 01, 2013 03:43:58 PM
Why not just challenge craftsters to work up something using a specific "material" rather than a specific theme. Then see what they come up with. The material to be used for the challenge might be for example: straws, balloons, dry sponges, old toy wheels...whatever you can think of! That ought to get the creative juices flowing.

7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Toy doll - 21 inches tall with Hobby horse on: February 24, 2013 06:51:20 AM
I made this doll as a gift to pay back a dear friend who helped me a lot when Sandy hit.  I was hit hard by her but am slowing coming back to normal, not all the way there yet, but getting there.
Anyway here is the doll shown in 4 photos. She is a little girl clown and is 21 inches tall and quite a character. She is holding on to her hobby horse and jump rope; she has a yoyo and a tiny teeny teddy bear on her hat.








8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Adorable Knitted doll - Little Elsie on: January 16, 2013 03:52:09 PM
This one I made for a friends as a gift. She is a Greenhowe pattern. The pattern calls for a 15 and 1/2 doll but my Little Elsie is 21 inches tall because I use a heavier yarn.

Elsie loves her toys: her yoyo, her skates, her pony ride. I even added one more toy for her...the tiny teddy bear.
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Dragon ski hat on: July 03, 2012 01:46:36 PM
This was kind of fun to knit. When I finished the hat I stuck it on a bowl but first I stuffed it with this really huge ball of yarn I have so as to make it stand up straight. It does have eyes holes and a mouth hole.
