5191  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Stacked penguins on: November 08, 2006 07:51:29 AM
It's probably tacky to 'revive' your own post but I forgot I had posted this way back in 2006 and so I was going to post them today and realized, after some searching, that they were already on here but I updated the photo since I'm better at taking pictures now and added the close up.

I made this stack of little penguins in 2006 and thought I would share them with you.

With the exception of the base, they are made for one piece of wood and that meant that everywhere there was an opening between the penguins, I had to drill a small hole and then thread my saw blade through that before starting to cut - it was one of the most challenging cutting jobs I had done up to that date.


        

Close up of my favorite guy (wouldn't you look like this if someone was stepping on you?)

Craftydeb and I are in the process of doing a personal swap - I have received her items but she is still awaiting the arrival of mine.  I've never done a personal swap like this before and it was an interesting process - PMs back and forth to decide what to swap, etc!

So, I had asked for some hot sauce for my hubby to add to his collection and she found some great ones:



and I also wanted some colorful granny squares so I could finish my afghan (all squares have been collected through swaps) and she sent me 6 wonderful ones, which means I now have enough to put this thing together:



THANKS Deb, for everything!

Hopefully bagheera won't mind me posting this picture in her thread (if you do, PM me and I will remove it).

I realized yesterday that I have a 'non-traditional' moose hair tufting picture and so I thought I would share it (I did not make this, it was made by a lady in Fort Providence, NWT)



I call this beaver and stump 'non-traditional' because most are flower pictures.

Chloeiscrazy had picked one of the wishes I had for my husband and she made him a stencilled shirt with a Coke product on it.  I took a picture of just the stencil so you could see it better:



Thanks!

Banga, you beat me with pictures by about 2 minutes!  Here's a picture of all the items she sent me:



Thanks for everything!

Okay, I know I'm being impatient but, are we getting November squares soon?

Wow, this brought tears to my eyes when I saw it because of all the memories it brought back to me.

I grew up in the Northwest Territories (for those not from Canada, that's the large part across the top of our country) and my parents house was full of these pictures, except they were made from moose hair.  When they moved to Alberta, they took them all along but didn't hang as many up in their new house.  I have always loved these kind of pictures and have seen a number of ladies making them and it was very interesting.

I've seen other pictures then just flowers - I have seen a moose done in moose hair, a ptarmigan, small houses - I think you could do most anything if you had the patience!
5198  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / One Tiny Thing ? on: November 06, 2006 07:51:13 AM
I participated in five One Tiny Thing swaps and then they seemed to disappear.  I'm wondering if anyone else is interested in doing another one of these and what do you think would be good timing for it - before or after Christmas?

I better hurry up and put MissMeShell's name on it, or else I'll be tempted to keep it!  Grin

Great idea avsceriline!  I might have to do something to personalize Krafty_Kelly's also so I can't keep it or I better make another one so I can give this one away!

esmerelda received the frog amigurumi I sent her and I told her I would post a picture - I sure was happy with how he turned out and it seems that she is too  Grin
