Last week we went to a "Wild Wednesdays" event, which the West Lothian Council is putting on, getting people (mostly children) interested in nature, recycling etc.

This week they had Owls with them... gorgeous creatures.

Due to the uncharacteristic heat we have in Scotland at the moment, some of the Owls were a bit cranky, so I didn't let Harper get any closer than this shot...

This is the quilt I made from squares I received through the QBS - Rd 5 swap.  There is a QBS - Rd 6 taking sign ups right now for anyone who might be interested btw.  Anyway...I asked for hexie blocks from an unusual color palette of chocolate brown, deep purple, magenta, lime green, and lemon yellow.  I received blocks from kbrison, carolmb, alwaysinmyroom, and Melladh.  Actually, alwaysinmyroom was nice enough to make me two sets since the white space was bigger than the others on her first set.

When I started putting it together, the only fabrics I could find that would draw it all together were mostly batiks lol.  I have no problem mixing batiks and non-batiks, so it turned into a pretty bright quilt. 

Here is a close up of one of the hexies:

I used alwaysinmyroom's first set of hexies on the back, and placed them off center.

Here is a close up:

I swear they are all straight, but I was trying to take pics by myself before it started raining.   Grin  The quilt is sized somewhere between a throw and a twin.  And I longarmed the whole thing with magenta squiggly lines.

I wondered how many others out there wanted to have a swap that was just for seasonal things: Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring. You can get ready for the Fall season or hold on to Summer a little bit longer ^^ Or start early on gift giving.

~I thought it might be fun to do a scavenger swap style as well since it's usually more challenging to find certain items in certain seasons (like flip flops in Fall  Cheesy)

~Was thinking maybe late August/early September after school madness has calmed a bit and before the crazy holidays stuff kick in Tongue

~Make it a 4-6 point swap so crafting at least 1 medium or large (or something that takes 2 hours or more)

~Some examples of Scavenger Hunt swaps:

  Yarnies Scavenger Hunt

  Fabric Lover Scavenger Hunt

  Twilight Crafty Scavenger Hunt

Am open to amendments and suggestions on this of course  Cheesy

I made a bracelet for my sister made of lava-stones and aquamarine. She is an architecture student and has much stress while crafting Projects or learning for test. Aquamarine spends endurance and self-esteem; lava spends power. I don't know if these stones are really helping, but I think it can't hurt.

I love felting. And my parents cat loves felted things. So I made a wet-felted mouse for him. Most of the time he is cuddling with the mouse but sometimes he tries to kill it Cheesy "In-action" pictures are following!

So I fell in love with wet felting and because I am also in love with my cute hamster girl, I decided to make her a wet felted cave like the ones for cats.
Inspired by a cave I saw on the Internet I made this. It was very easy and fast to make.
Sorry for the blurry "in-action" Picture Wink

I am most definitely not a painter, but I was making a housewarming present for a friend and wanted to try something a little different to what I normally do. I used a wooden board for the canvas, and slapped down some nice thick layers of dark blues, dark purples, and a bit of black. Then I used silver paint to write out the quote. As you can see, I messed up a bit in the middle and there is some smudging >___< My consolation is that it is not quite so visible in real life! The stars are also done in silver, but they have glow in the dark paint added over the top. They do not glow very brightly, but when viewed at night they do look quite lovely ^___^ I need a *lot* more practise to get my brush control looking neater, but nonetheless I am happy with how it looks ^___^

I made this LSP costume for a con I recently attended. It was so much fun! This is by far one of the most comfortable costumes I have made, and lots of people recognised who I was, which was fantastic! ^___^

I brought my wig and tights, and my belt was something I already owned, but everything else was handmade ... or at least upcycled! ^___^ The dress is the main bit of the costume - I am very lucky to have a fashion designer as a friend and she helped me to create both the pattern and the dress. It's a simple pattern, but it fits perfectly and is oh so comfy ^___^ The bodice is fully lined and the skirt has three panels to ensure much fluffiness. I also wore a petticoat underneath it to really up the fullness. I personally think it could have been even fuffier ... but I only brough three meters of fabric and I figured I'd probably want to sit down at some point during the day ~___^

I also made my hair clip (felt, glitter mod podge, and a clip backing) ...

and my necklace (shrinky dink, nail polish, sharpies, chain, and jewellery findings) ...

and my bag (glittery vinyl, leather scraps, gold paint, a zip, chain and jump rings, hot glue, and embroidery thread)!

My shoes were ugly and beige when I brought them from an opshop; I have to wear shoe inserts to fix my dreadful feet so I picked out some old lady shoes that I knew would fit my orthotics and also be comfortable. Then I covered them in glitter and mod podge until they were hardly recognisable! I made some giant bows from satin ribbon and added clip on earring backs so that I could fasten them over the straps of the shoes.

And that's that! The only other thing you need for a LSP costume is a good side eye. I think I've got it downpat ~___^
