181  Re: Altered Puzzle Pieces, Round 9 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by cmarion3 on: July 17, 2014 04:55:32 PM
I received my first 4 pieces. Two airs, a water and an earth. I love this theme. I am doing the center pieces of this 12 piece wood puzzle....moon and sun. I'm just getting to those pieces and also painting the frame. Whew!

From Artmomto5 I received earth and air. The earth has sand and lots of polished stones. Love the tactile feel and weight of the piece. The air piece has birds and swirly clouds. It has a wonderful layered look and something shiny underneath. Delightful.

From luvbuggy99 I received water and air. Breathe is so fresh, makes me want to take in that oxygen! And water invites you jump in. As the song goes..."you don't need no bathing suit, just jump, jump jump!"

182  Pennies from Heaven...pass those pennies forward in Completed Projects by cmarion3 on: July 14, 2014 07:17:52 PM
100 things are easy to think of, but hard to imagine in one craft. I recently became the owner of a box of doll arms (impulse bid on eBay that won). I had this wooden purse, a thrift store find, that cried out to become a shrine, but no inspiration. Then I found a penny on the ground and it all burst into fruition.

But I had to find 99 more pennies. I searched my car, the change bowl, the laundry area, the bottom of my purse and came up with 69 pennies. What? Only 69. So I started designing, gluing, thinking of things I could buy that would give me pennies.
Luckily I finally found the big change jar and 31 more pennies joined. Now I am finding pennies everywhere!

Enjoy "Pennies from Heaven" and pass those pennies forward.

Managed to drop a few little birdies around Connecticut. Picture dump! No responses, but I hope they find new homes.

From bluepaisan...I just love her hand drawn cards, so delicately done, detailed and so funny! The theme was humor plus water.

She says the pencil sketch started out with the boy peeing in the dog's mouth...but it morphed into his nose! We all know little boys can't aim. Thank you, I love a good laugh.

I just made a tut for these little birds inspired by alwaysinmyroom! I love the crochet ones, but I am making cat toys for a craft fair and that is taking all my crochet attention. Since I can sew up a storm, I whipped these up yesterday and will start abandoning today. I even created an email and Twitter account for postings and replies. Who knows....one might be found and posted. I'm guessing the return is about what a direct mail campaign results are....pretty low, but fun when one comes in.

Tut is here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434563.0#axzz37GUFfhmD

187  Little fabric and felt bird ornament tutorial - a bird in the bush in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by cmarion3 on: July 12, 2014 07:17:27 AM
I'm joining the Abandoned Art Craftalong, the idea is so appealing and so fun. You make a piece of art, then abandon it to be found. I was looking for an easy and bright idea and alwaysinmyroom posted these cute crocheted birds. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434378.msg5218657;topicseen#msg5218657

I'm too slow a crocheter, but I can sew up a storm. Searching Pinterest I saw a fabric version and then modified to fit my stash of craft felt. Nice and bright, easy, perfect. These birds took very little time to stitch up, especially in groups. I made 5 and plan on making more. I'll abandon a few today in my home town, then I'll be in Hartford next week for jury duty and can abandon more. Vacation is coming.....I'll leave them across the US (at least to Michigan).

Felt - 2 to three colors
Jute twine/embroidery floss/yarn
Sewing machine or needle and thread

Start by cutting
1 ea. circle of felt 3 1/2" (9 cm) in diameter, cut in half for body.
1 ea. contrasting fabric circle 3 1/4" (8.5 cm) in diameter, cut in half. I used pinking shears.
1 ea. 1 1/4" square of yellow felt, then cut in half diagonally. This will make two beaks.
1 ea. 1 3/4" (3.5 cm) circle, cut in half for wings.
1 ea. 12" (30.5 cm )length of twine, knot together to form a loop for a hanger.
1 ea. 9" (23 cm) length of twine, knot each end about 3/4" (2 cm) from end and fray. Fold in half for legs.
2 ea. 6" (15 cm) lengths of twine, knot each end and fray, f
old in half for the tail.

Stitch smaller fabric circle to felt body

Stitch wings to body, add additional stitching or embellishments now.

Place both halves together, wrong sides facing. Place hanger, legs, tail. Fold triangle beak in half and place at head. See picture. Stitch around body catching hanger, legs, tail and beak. Leave a small opening for stuffing. Stuff lightly and stitch opening closed. Enjoy

After a long, hard, wait in the heat of summer in Connecticut, I received an amazing altered spool. The detail is beautiful and the embroidery on the little hand stitched birds is exquisite! You have out done yourself whenindoubtsew. I keep seeing more details.

There are hand wrapped spools (love the mini ones), gears, pearls and flowers. The birds have embroidered feathers and the wings on the bird ready to fly are beautiful. Enjoy!

Thank you, thank you.

Wow blu, I can't believe you are the first to post. Yes I have the backs. These are two of my favorite found pictures from the web. I was looking for pictures of old hands for a photo project and found these. I love interesting faces and fun little old ladies (we are the best!). I was tempted to check the "Mature Image" button, after all these are mature ladies all.

190  Re: 50 Projects 2014--Let's continue the craftiness! in Craftalongs by cmarion3 on: July 07, 2014 05:12:05 PM
We did a little house remodel this last winter, knocked out a closet, then put a new floor in (big project to level the silly thing). Lots of paint, some furniture upgrades. The only thing we had to purchase was the flooring. Everything else was leftovers or rescued.

Started small....http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=432332.msg5175621#msg5175621

Then went bigger...this was a big clutter buster and fun to showcase all the goodies from swaps.

This is the redone room...http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=432543.msg5179919#msg5179919

And some detail

Comfy seating http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=432638.msg5181774#msg5181774

And then the craft room...started a year and a half ago, finished early spring.

Also a little sewing table mod...new sewing machine and very old table. I hate to throw anything out. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434415.msg5216454#msg5216454

Then on to more art dolls. Why do I like making these so much, but never keeping any? http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=432960.msg5186288#msg5186288

Altered anything gets me happy. Here's a spool that found a new life. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434331.msg5214933#msg5214933

Some fun blocks Olliblock style. www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=433201.msg5190661#msg5190661

And my favorite swap ever, the Spirit/Intention doll swap. I have made more of these for friends. So much fun. This topic has a pattern.

And another...http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=433811.msg5202731#msg5202731

And to lift our spirits, prayer flags...http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=433433.msg5194683#msg5194683

A great scrap buster are fabric rope bowls. Very addictive and useful...I think. I've made a few hundred feet of bowls. And still ripping fabric and wrapping and stitching. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434026.msg5207791#msg5207791

and http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434027.msg5207794#msg5207794

An ATC or dozen. I will just post this one...my favorite.

And my last effort...100 things challenge. 100 pennies fell from heaven. Pass them on. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434416.msg5216459#msg5216459

There's more I am sure, but I can't even count. Not enough fingers or toes. It's hard to count the room redo's...so many little details to craft. Out to the garden now.
