Niiicccee...the un-paper towel holder has a cool industrial feel to it!  Cheesy

I got the box I needed for my partner's items and everything is in it.  I just need to add a note, and I'll be bugging DH to mail out on Tuesday.

On another note, my scarf claim for BriannaB03 is boxed up.  I just need to include a note and then I'll bug DH to mail on Tuesday.  Hope you are feeling better, Brianna!

I first have to apologize to ActsofCraftiness for my not contacting her sooner to let her know that I received this wonderful claim, or to post photos.  We had training last week at a place that's about 40 miles away from my home and it was just so tiring, all I did when I got home was eat and sleep.

But as you can see, the claim is AWESOME!  She sent some butterfly bunting, butterfly cutouts, and butterfly & dot confetti for my DD's upcoming Bat Mitzvah in June!  I LOVE IT!  Thank you so very much!

(I'm sorry the photo came out crooked, I'm not sure why it did.)

Oddacity you are on a roll. I love the jelly fish! In fact all the cards are so much fun.

I received from oddacity the sweetest card for my moon and stars theme. It has layers of tissue paper for stars and moon. I love it. I think this one will hang from my new shelf!

I made this little bird and bird nest for a Cloth Paper Scissors Magazine Wired/Mixed-Media Assemblage reader challenge. Whew. I have been working on this for several months, it just would not come together, but with the deadline looming (Sept. 5th) I finally finished and photographed it. Finalists will be posted on the 12th!

The wire bird nest is constructed of salvaged wire from wire-bound manuals, cherry wood sticks, raffia and strung beads. It is lined with milk weed pod silk and three tiny wire wrapped egg-jewels snuggle inside. Mama bird is hand-stitched from hand-made paper fabric with bent wire legs. Overall size is about 4x4x6 inch.

Finally had time to update the thread... whew! You guys have been busy Smiley

I'm sorry the updates are so rare lately... we had to renovate our workspace rather unexpectedly since all our fancy shelves decided to fall down tearing wallpaper and large chunks of wall down with them, and right now, large parts of our apartment feel something like this:

(not my actual room - mine looks even worse!)

I will have even less time the upcoming months, and have been thinking of handing over the torch in October. I'll host September's swap, but someone will have to take over after that. We'll be traveling again almost the whole month, and I don't think I'll be able to keep up. If anyone feels like stepping up, just send me a pm!

I purchased a box of vintage yarn on ebay last year. In it were these whole skeins of virgin wool from the 70s and some ugly stinky yarn. I was determined to put it all to good use so I set out to make an afghan. It was a complete pain in the butt. No matter how much febreeze I spray it smells odd, the yarn was all different weights, and the wool kept breaking every few stitches. I don't know what I am going to do with this thing but here it is:

i'm so glad you like it. i had fun and went with a 50's advertising theme so it's not so obviously divergent.....did you know that they amity put peace serum in their bread when the dauntless come to dinner?

i used decoart ink effects fabric transfer paint. i bought it on clearance at joann fabrics, but you can still buy it on the website. i've only used it a couple times but i love it.
i created the image on my computer, and reverse  printed it out in black and white on regular paper. then i painted it with the ink. it looks much darker on the paper. after it dries, you place it on your fabric and iron it. it works best on light colors, and will be darker on synthetic fabrics like the felt. this is the same technique on another project. i don't have an in process for the divergent bag. the cotton tote bag on the right is kind of light. painted image on the left.

you can also iron it 3 or 4 times with good results. it didn't work well for fine lines like the fear text, but for the basic images i was really happy with it. then i stitched the details with floss. i used the same stencil several times on a pillow case for my daughter it's half cotton half polyester. the image isn't still like fabric paints usually are. i haven't washed it so i don't know how durable it is. but she like it.

I can't believe I never saw that movie!

I love it so much, I think it's a masterpiece.  The lab scenes are especially great.   Cheesy
