I received from emilywilde!  She chose honeycomb from my list.  And how clever to use a knit honeycomb cable for the body.  And the cute, little, silver bees were from her stash!

This is my first dotee with one of these serene faces.  I really love the contented peace they portray.  Glad I finally have one to watch over my crafting bench.

Thank you emilywilde!

Wasn't quite sure which topic to post this one in since it's technically appliqued, but since I used the embroidery hoop as a frame I thought this was the best one. Smiley

Made a Daria themed hoop for fun the other day!  Super happy with how it came out.  Done on a 5 inch embroidery hoop with all felt. Smiley

I have finally received my package from quaggy!  It sat in Jersey City for 2 days before it finally got to me.  However, it was totally worth the wait!  Quaggy sent me basically some of everything and I couldn't be more thankful!

Stocking kit, cross stitch kit, embroidery kit, and felt mobile kit:

The mobile kit maybe my favorite because it matches all of the handmade Christmas things we have that my mom has made.  I always look forward to when we put them out each year, but I think this will just hang out in my room year-round.   Roll Eyes

Dial-a-cut, fall themed scrapbook paper, scissors, tags, and scrapbook add-ins:

Sculpey Clay and cutters:

Cards, scrapbook add-ins, and cool package of papers and fabrics:

Mini canvas with frame, mini canvas with easels, roll with paint brushes, diy wooden ornaments, glitter, diy plaster/ceramic eggs to paint, and photo cube:

Christmas-y felt, snowflake medallions kit, color pencils, chalk set, diy flag kit, embroidery floss set, and pattern set for tote bag and apron:

Quaggy- You truly outdid yourself, and I cannot possibly thank you enough!  Every little item will most definitely be used and I cannot wait to start trying out some crafts and new ideas.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Astronomy Class
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: A 50s Party dress for AnnoyingLittleSister
Brief Description: With this dress I starting working on a pattern for dresses for ALS, so she can have some nice little 50s dresses to wear when we go to town. This dress is made mainly from an old cotton sheet, and multicolored fabric left over from a project from semesters ago. It sports a long sash that ties in the back. Not only is the contrasting fabric a blend of different colors, but it looks like the trails that fireworks make in the sky. Smiley I loved making the turned hemline with the contrasting fabric. This is the first time I've ever done that.  I'm especially proud that the little ribbon over the seam worked so well.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Care of Magical Creatures Class (CoMC)
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: A 50s Sailing dress for AnnoyingLittleSister
Brief Description: With this dress I'm still fighting with that horrible "easy" pattern to make a working 50s little girl dress pattern.  Today's little girl dresses all have empire waistlines and tea length skirts. It was physically easy to shorten the dress to knee length (though it was super freaky) but the waistline had to be dropped significantly. That was something new for me. At the moment the pattern is nothing like it came in the package. This dress I made blue,  with a coordinating blue speckle patterned fabric.  I did a turned hemline with the speckled fabric, and machine appliqued a cute sailboat on the skirt.  It's her aquatic dress. Smiley

Project Name: A hair flower in honor of France.
Brief Description: It was decided that I need many more hair flowers. So when I saw this project I knew it was going to be fun.  The zinc flag is blue, white, and red, so I got flowers that we're blue white and red.  I started by super gluing all of the flowers and their bases to the stems.  Then I cut and arranged them the way I wanted them and hot glued them together.  Then I hot glued the flowers to the clip and learned that hot glue can and will melt plastic flower stems.  Finally I did tons of touch up for which my fingers are sporting hot glue blisters.

Hot glue is HOT.

But it was all worth it to have such an adorable hair flower in the colors of the French flag. Smiley
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Herbology Class
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Purple hair flowers and hair bows
Brief Description: It was brought to my attention that I have several lavender shirts to wear with my white skirt but no flowers or bows to match. I started by making a purple hair flower exactly as I did my French flag inspired hair flower. Even though this took 30 minutes to do I had purple ribbon so I decided to keep going. I have SIGNIFICANTLY more respect for hair bows as an art form now.  The 8 bows I made took ALL day to make. I hate hot glue. These are actually all sewn, but I used hot glue to anchor them to clips. After I finished I noticed one of the girls' hair bow's clip was covered in ribbon before the bow was glued on.  I'll try that next time.  This time I was just glad to finish them. Rofl

Class/Challenge/House Pride: History of Magic Class (HoM)
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Alice in Wonderland hair flower
Brief Description: One of my favorite books has always been Alice in Wonderland.   And one of my favorite scenes has always been Painting the Roses Red.  For this project I mounted 2 silk white roses onto a clip as with my other hair flowers.  While doing so I learned what a pill it is to have to glue flowers back together because I forgot to super glue the bases and flowers to the stem.  I cut too close and they all fell apart.  After getting them all glued together and to the clip I worked them over with hot glue to build up solid glue "drips" that would look like paint drips after I painted them.  I hung it up outside and worked really hard to do a shitty job painting the flowers. I wanted to have sections that had entirely too much paint while also having areas that didn't receive any paint at all. Just as the cards did a horrible job painting the roses.  Smiley After they dried from the second coat I wrote my favorite quotes on them with a thin felt tipped sharpie. There is "We're painting the roses red" on the top, and on the underside of the roses it says "Off with their heads". Smiley

Class/Challenge/House Pride:
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Shelves to be organized
Brief Description: I have desperately been needing shelves to help organize my craft supply goodness. I didn't want to build wooden shelves for this Victorian farmhouse inspired bedroom so I headed to the store for metal shelf brackets.  All they had were closet shelf brackets with the hook on the front. Well, I didn't WANT hooks on the fronts!  I brought them home and used my metal cutting blade on my circular saw to cut off the hooks.  Then I used my bench sander to round off the cut ends.  I hung them brackets and painted them flat black. While the brackets were drying I painted my shelf boards with the same shade of paint as my bedroom walls. Toasted Oatmeal. I mounted a short shelf over my dresser to hold my makeup and new shoes and accessories.   The long shelf I hung over the door the length of the wall to hold various craft supplies. They work WONDERFULLY, and I have floor space to do my yoga again. Smiley For my shelf making book selection I would like to offer "Step-by-Step Cabinets & Shelves" by Better Homes & Gardens.  They put out wonderful how to books. Smiley

So Apti might get to see a Tropical Storm if the current track holds through the weekend. TS Erika is heading out way as of right now for Monday-into-Tuesday:

(As of Friday afternoon)

We are still several days out though and these things change and update a lot. You can keep up with the projections here: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/refresh/graphics_at5+shtml/173843.shtml?5-daynl#contents

A tropical storm is definitely a bad storm - winds between 39 mph; 63 km/h and 54 mph; 87 km/h - but not as bad as a hurricane. If it does come our way we might have flooding, power outages and such.

Yeah... Where did august go?

I recieved some lovely magnets from anna.wahnsinn last week and took photos the other day. I had to clean the fridge first :cough:

Look! So sparkly Cheesy They're tricky to take photos of, but trust me - they are perfect.

A bit more glare, but some of the designs are more visible here.

As if that wasn't enough the magnets came in a vintage looking tin AND anna included two packages of honeybush infusion. I can't get it locally, so getting two packets was a very nice surprise! Thank yooou! I've had honeybush tea almost every night since I got the package.

Thanks, HSG!

Here is the picture of the designer's hat...it is just so lovely blocked, showing off the leaves...of course, it could be the darker yarn as well, so I will be making another using a rust colored yarn.

I have been making myself a lot of inchies, rinchies, and twinchies lately. Tons of fun has been had as I've turned those little works of art into useful projects. Wall art, notecards, etc., are now stacked up in my craft room. Here are a few pics of some of the cool notecards I have made.

Some of the designs are rather simple, but I think they are lovely in their simplicity. I like to keep the insides of my notecards blank because I feel like handwriting your sentiments is really special for the recipient.

In the O.W.S. swap round 117 I received a 6x6 gelli plate from the very generous Rscowtown. I was thrilled beyond words as I had been desperately wanting to try out what I knew would be my next craft addiction. (I can't say enough how generous Laurel was in this swap claim!)

I wanted to post a few pics to show what I did with the first few sheets that I made on my new plate. I decided to use some of the papers to make some notecards. The envelopes also have the papers used for decoration. They are pretty simple but I like them a lot. I hope you enjoy them! Thanks for looking.
