3322  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Witch/Wicca/Pagan Swap Round 10! (flake free and finished!) on: February 03, 2009 10:09:57 AM
I have had a long and wearying day at work, but I just wanted to tell you all about a moment in the journey home, I was thinking about this swap and (still) deciding what to craft for phildude. It was twilight, when I rounded a corner and saw a hare sitting in the middle of the road. Hares always feel like a message from the Goddess for me. In this case that spring is on the way (I am seriously struggling with depression this winter). This is something that I pulled off from the net about Hares (and rabbits)

In many mythic traditions, these animals were archetypal symbols of femininity, associated with the lunar cycle, fertility, longevity, and rebirth. But if we dig a little deeper into their stories we find that they are also contradictory, paradoxical creatures: symbols of both cleverness and foolishness, of femininity and androgny, of cowardice and courage, of rampant sexuality and virginal purity. In some lands, Hare is the messenger of the Great Goddess, moving by moonlight between the human world and the realm of the gods; in other lands he is a god himself, wily deceiver and sacred world creator rolled into one.

Darn and dammit...no snow day, they promised us tons of it and apparently a warm front came in the night and cheated us of it, so its work for me and crafting for later...

I like snow...(I love snow days) but even snow on the fields and mountains would have been pretty..Ah well there is always next year

I love that you posted pictures of the stages, I am a very beginner polyclay person and its great to see how the stages work and the steps you take.

I have one question, what tools do you use to shape the facial features.
3327  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Wild Pumpkins Baby Quilt on: February 02, 2009 07:37:00 AM
I love this, thank you for the inspiration. I am currently in the middle of a very heavy teaching load this semester and I get home in the evenings and am usually completely brain burnt. I have also discovered that I need to craft, that if I dont I tend to get a bit blue. So I have been looking at a simple quilt pattern so I can do small quilt as you go blocks sitting in front of the TV in the evenings. I usually dont have the energy to get into my craft room and start any sizeable projects.

I have seen these quilt blocks before, but I love the colours you have chosen and you have inspired me to go and sew up a bunch of squares
3328  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: What fabric to use for this jacket/these jackets? on: February 02, 2009 03:00:49 AM
have you thought about using a very fine lightweight wool and cutting it on the bias? the bias will give you the stretch and a natural fibre is always worth while if you are going to put work into it. it will be more $$$ though.

Of course you could use any lightweight suiting and cut on the bias to give you the stretch you need, just beware that it is more challenging to sew as every seam is stretchy and if there are any obvious lines like pinstripes, they will be at a 45 degree angle, rather than up and down.

Hmm, I dont think its hideous at all! I got a big squashy pincushion like that in a swap and its brilliant, especially for someone like me who is great at scattering pins all over the place

windoverireland Thank you for the welcome, this group is great, very friendly and welcoming, Edel is my given name and apart from that has no other significance. It is a relatively young name only goes back in that form less than 100 years, it is fairly common here in ireland.

RhondaS those links are great, the muses of course..*doh*

and Toby82 *double doh* of course I should be working with images of the male and female deitys together as lovers. I noticed sometime ago that all of the artwork I have on my walls tends to be of solitary females (and I wondered why I found it hard to attract a SO) at the time I worked completely with the Goddess, but then I realised that I needed balance, and so have started to appreicate and consider the God more....to say that I have been working with the God would be too strong, but it is something that is calling me, but I want to look at the aspects of the balance of the two, so of course both!

and thanks for that tip about the sunstone, I am often paralysed with too many things I want to do, but unable to start any of them, so it would be good to have something to assist with that.
