31  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Re: Fiber Friday, 8 May 2015 on: May 08, 2015 07:13:24 PM
Wow, I saw that first picture before reading and my honest immediate thought was, "Did she just post a picture of some regular yarn from the store??" That is some unbelievable work. I bow to the Master!  Smiley

We're due for a Fiber Friday! Here's something I finally finished...Actually I finished it a couple months ago but was too busy with other stuff to post it...

It's 106 yds, a thick-and-thin plied with an all-thin  Cheesy, then I wound some black-and-gold metallic thread around sections that needed more definition. I still have a lot of this Ferndale Fiber roving left, and I'm going to leave all of that thin and single-ply, and this skein can be worked in for an accent row on whatever the finished object becomes.

Please share any pics you have from the last month, there hasn't been a Fiber Friday in quite some time!

Yay, I just finished my remaining assignments for the spring semester! Now I am taking a relaxing/crafting break (first stop: Craftster!) before diving into additional work.

In the course of the research I was finishing for school, I found information I needed for a craftADDchick science patch I've been wanting to make.  Cheesy So I might start up that patch tonight (I'm sending it whether or not we get paired up!  Wink).

This upcoming weekend I'm going to visit a friend in L.A. for some long overdue girls-time. Originally we were going for a ride in an amphibious vehicle in Santa Barbara but that plan fell through...They take you on a tour of Downtown Santa Barbara, and then drive right into the ocean and sail around for a while, then drive out and drop you back in the middle of town again! It's really absurd and fun; I recommend it.  Smiley

I haven't posted a progress pic for my giant project in several years...And it still isn't done! I needle-felted the figures' skin, and now I'm struggling with how to stitch their faces.

Thank you for sharing this, Ludi! Even though the initial deadline is this month, they're going to be taking entries into December, so I definitely want to get on board.

I'm reviving the thread! Because a) we're still making and swapping patches, and b) I never posted this book I made years ago.  Roll Eyes The overall theme of the book is "the creative process," and I was waiting until the inside pages were filled up before posting pics, I guess. But after however many years now, I realize that it's a PROCESS that may never be finished! So here is the TM part of the book:
Front cover:

The yellow panel is my first attempt at nuno felting, and there are buttons I've received from various swaps. The big rusty one says, "It's hard to be humble when you're from Bakersfield."  Cheesy

Inside front cover:

And back cover, which is the finished product from what I had started in this thread a long, long time ago:

Messy, busy, fun, mixed media...as the creative process tends to be.  Smiley I'm probably going to add a closure but haven't found just the right one yet.

Count me in -- May is shaping up to be a marvelous crafting month for me! (the rest of the year, not so much Cheesy)
39  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Re: Did you ever wonder what the Doctor's closet might look like? on: April 19, 2015 01:44:55 PM
This! This is exactly where I was hoping someone would take the "Doctor Who" crafting (though I didn't know what form it would take), and you did it! It doesn't just use a reference or imagery from the show, it actually tells a story. Marvelous!
40  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Another Doctor Who Swap anyone??? on: April 07, 2015 08:23:16 PM
I don't want to stomp out the idea of a quicker, easier swap, since some folks specifically asked for a smaller swap...But maybe this bigger swap could run during the summer, to give people enough time to go back through to watch past seasons?

As for me, I'm newer-than-most to the show but only have one 2-part finale left before I've seen everything of the reboot era. My partner and I have been together for about a year, and early on he insisted on starting me out on Matt Smith's Doctor, then circling back around to Christopher Eccleston and David Tennant once we ran out of new Peter Capaldi episodes (which I think was a good idea). It's been a weekly thing for us, so I'm kind of sad to have reached the end of the era.  Smiley
