1  Re: Printmaking Collaboration: Suminagashi and Lino-cut in More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions by flyangler on: March 23, 2014 08:48:07 PM
Stillatthetop-  I used Innovation Boku Undo Suminagashi pigment:



John and Sophie hand carved the linoleum blocks used for the black over-prints that you see on my sumi and water printed papers. The octopus, ammonite, and prehistoric squid and trilobyte are not stamps but block prints. The second photo shows John inking the squid block.

I decided to use the scrap corners from the snowballs to make a wee pinwheel and set it in the middle of the red plaid corner block. Is that log cabin style?

3  Ideas for corner blocks on shirt quilt additional question in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by flyangler on: February 28, 2014 07:45:04 AM
Hello quilters!

I'm making this recycled shirt quilt a la Kathy's Quilts from 2009:  http://thethriftyquilter.blogspot.com/2009/06/seven-shirts-seven-steps-one-thrifty.html

What do you think I should use for corner blocks? I'm mulling some sort of pinwheel made of the dark shirt scraps on a light shirt background. The blocks should come out to 6 1/2". I've never done any pinwheels. I'm still not a precise quilter, so don't judge me on wonky,  wavy or waffly-ness you see here. I suppose another nine patch would be easy enough.

With more caps, not yet nailed on.

Nancy, I agree in principle. It suffers the same useless fate as other re-usable shopping bags and baskets. Ya gotta remember to take it with you!

5  Beer tote in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by flyangler on: December 20, 2013 09:58:11 AM
I may be done crafting for this Christmas. I based this tote on one I found online and modified it according to what we had on hand for tools, scrap lumber and my skill level. http://thenewhobbyist.com/2012/11/making-a-wedding-wooden-beer-totes/#comments

I added a couple of bottle caps to the ends of the handle and will add more along the side rails. Unlike the craftsman I imitated, I cobbled this together with screws and glue, and didn't stain or sand it. My measurements were not precise, so a couple of bombers will fit on one end and four regular size bottles will fit next to them. I meant to do that. Wink

6  Beer Tasting Glasses and Tray in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by flyangler on: December 16, 2013 05:54:45 PM
I painted a wooden tray with chalk board paint and used etching creme and stencils to enumerate 8 glasses with the numbers 1-4. Now my handsome hubby will have a two flights of glasses for beer tastings. We can use chalk to write the names or styles of beer on the tray.

Ok, from top left to bottom right:
1. Raw materials including lights, white electrical tape and 4" drain cover
2. Drill, drill bit and silicone caulk- tools and adhesive arrayed on the table saw
3. Inside of the drain cover, showing the six handy dividers between which holes are drilled
4. With 6 holes drilled in the sides of the drain cover, pvc pipe arms can be glued in with caulk

Remaining steps: 
1. Space between the arms of the snowflake and the holes in the drain cover will be filled with caulk
2. Lights will be taped onto the arms with the white electrical tape
3. A CD will be glued, shiny side out, onto the front of the drain cover
4. One last small hole will be drilled in the top of one arm to hang the snowflake on the house

8  Lighted Snowflake Lifts Gloom: added photos in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by flyangler on: November 30, 2013 10:11:15 AM
It's dark at 4:30 in the afternoon and that can make me feel blu-ish. So I have shouted back the dark by building my own snowflake for the front of our house. It's more Cub Scout than Martha Stewart, but I like it.


A 10' section of pvc pipe, a pvc drain cover, silicone caulk, a string of lights, a couple of waste CD's and some electrical tape is the recipe for a small, stinky mess in the garage followed by a bright addition to the exterior of our home. The generic winter theme means I can keep it up long past Christmas without feeling guilty.

As much as I have enjoyed talking to myself here, the photos are for all y'all.

I decided to take one of the d-rings on a webbing tab from the waders and use it as a pull for the flap. It conceals a magnetic snap and has a decorative lanyard knot extension, which can be used instead for a zipper pull on the pocket, if the recipent so chooses.



And we have closure.

Still using up the two leaky pairs of waders I have. I made a creel for a fellow angler out of a rice bag and some wader material for the inside. The old belt of the waders makes a fine shoulder strap. The photo collage kind of cut off the caption which was "A Creel Miracle (waders and rice bag)". Initially, I told my friend that I'd make him one out of a coffee bag, but when I saw the bit about the miracle of Himalayan water on the rice bag, I changed my gourd.

Do you think I should tea stain the rice bag to make it a little less white?
