1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Plushie/softie time again! on: Today at 03:34:44 AM
Okay recently I have become obsessed with plushies/ softies/soft toys what ever you want to call them.
The swap idea - make a Pinterest board of all the plushies/ softies you would love to have and your partner will choose from your board.
The twist is that they MUST be character plushies/softies.( eg - tv characters, cartoon characters, movies, book characters etc) get the jist!
It will be up to the maker what size etc., with communication to your partners tastes.
I think something like this was done maybe a year ago but I think it's time to do it again, plus I missed out.
Anyone want in? Probably mid August.
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Bluedog on: July 21, 2014 04:35:18 PM
have you ever just wanted to play and try something? I didn't know how this was going to turn out and when I made the wire armature I didn't even know if it would be a dog!
I'm not sure if I like it or not. Probably not...
I had in mind I wanted to make some sort of fantasy animal and that I wanted to try a clay head.
I do love that it has armature inside so it is fully poseable. It's quite big about 18 inches.
So now that I've made it I don't know what to do with it lol!
Do you ever have times like these.....

4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Pet goat on: July 18, 2014 03:26:11 AM
If you have read my profile, you would probably know that I have 2 pet goats named Ginger and Maryanne- yes from Gillian's island Grin so I wanted to do a goat embroidery. Who wouldn't? I made the ears a little different, using an acrylic fabric medium. I like to mix my media sometimes.
I really loved making it, it's a 7 inch hoop,  but I really hurt my neck in the process. I think I keep it too stiff while stitching. It took me 3 days to get over it.  Sad
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Another EDWARD GOREY swap on: July 11, 2014 04:29:40 AM
I love Edward Gorey illustrations. The last swap like this was in April 2013 and the gallery was amazing.
The ideas are endless, embroidery, sculpture, drawings, screen printing......
I would love to host this, late august early September
6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Dark forest swap? on: July 11, 2014 04:01:13 AM

Image borrowed from here: http://www.halloween-hill-props.com/eviltree

Okay so we have heard of the Enchanted forest swap we had recently, so I was playing with the idea of ' The Dark forest' swap.
I'm playing around with the idea in my head at the moment and thinking along the lines of
Trolls, witches, ravens, spiders, giants, goblins, old houses, wolves- werewolves.
can you think of others, would love to hear ideas!
thinking of hosting this a bit down the track, like late august, early September.
Who's  willing to come and play in the dark forest???
7  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Witch! on: July 10, 2014 11:22:01 PM
I made this scary witch for the recent Halloween in July swap for my partner crazyda79. She is made from paperclay. Has a flat back, so she can hang easily on a wall or door.

8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Frankie on: July 10, 2014 11:15:42 PM

9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Embroidery round robin on: June 30, 2014 12:25:43 AM
Okay another idea... Yep I have heaps of them
Anyone interested in a round robin, where you make a fabric journal and each person in the round robin embroiders a page. The pages would be made in a way that a embroidery hoop would fit. In the end you have a journal with every participants piece of work all in your very own journal.
10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Practising my embroidery on: June 29, 2014 04:47:19 PM
I really love embroidery and have admired many projects on here. So I decided to get off my backside and start to learn.
Here is a bird with a dragonfly I embroidered and tinted with watercolor paint. I used freestyle machine embroidery to draw the bird and d/fly then hand stitch the rest.
