I have a whole bunch of little teeny things I've been making recently. So it's a bit of a photo dump...

I have another miniature goody to post. This was a challenge for me, and so I am quite proud of it.

Yes, the drawers open but I have no idea what might possibly be tiny enough to fit in them...  Roll Eyes

Ok, this guy is very tiny. Well, tiny for ME. I'm not one of those amazing artists that deals in 1:24 or 1:48 scale or insanity like THAT.

The drawers do open, although I have no idea what on earth I might find that would be tiny enough to be held in them, but you never know, I guess.

I got an awesome Odd Thomas ATC from mandit!  She went with my artist's choice theme, and I'm glad she did! I love Odd Thomas!!

This is her rendition of the card that the fortune telling machine Gypsy Mummy gave to Odd and Stormy, and which features prominently throughout the series. I love it!

She sent some great extras, too! Thanks, mandi!

I am loving the pies....I can definitely see your tweaks to the pattern, Smeddley. Different flavors would be cool, too!

I had a much more successful pattern transfer attempt last night. I think I can tweak anything I'm not happy with when stitching.

I would like to pick up a smaller hoop and then I'll start working on it. I'm headed north for a ski trip this weekend, so I'll be sure to bring this project with me for daily crafting. Smiley I might have been bitten by the embroidery bug.

This is a little handmade stand to organize small items. I used all hand tools other than the drill. I didn't want to clean up sawdust from the big electric machines. The wood is just scrap from other projects. The stripes are made with artist coals and then it is clear coated.

The base needs enough size and weight to maintain balance. It is screwed through from the underside. Screws with the triangle shaped head (when you look from the side) will sit flush easier. You will split the wood if you just try to sink a screw. You must make a drill hole, slightly narrower than your screw. If you do not own a drill or are afraid of power tools you can get an inexpensive hand drill. Hand tools are much slower but you do get much more control and safety. There are smaller hand saws but you may only find this common size at the big box stores.

Avoid overly knotty wood for small projects. You can see that my wood pile has different sized rings in the wood. Smaller looking rings usually means a stronger wood. Knots look bad and create a weak spot that may break on you. Make sure to sand down the pieces before you glue or screw things together and test the fit.

Try to get the arms as snug as possible so they don't fall off. I did not screw them in, they are wedged and glued but I would screw them for a heavy duty item.

The drill has no mechanism to determine what angle you are drilling other than two malfunctioning bubble levels if it even comes with that. You have to guess the angle that you would like your arms to rest. Keep in mind that flat horizontal arms might not hold things well.

Prompt:  February Challenge - Horror
Team: Wordy!!
Bonus Points:  
Project Name: Yarn Baskets
Project Link:
Brief Description: I can't remember if I've shared any of these yet. I keep making more even though I don't need more. I picked up a partially done kit from the thrift. I've been making my own cardboard frames since it only came with two and somehow five full skeins of yarn. Just tie the yarn and zig zag it between the cardboard strips. The cardboard isn't removed. It makes the basket sturdy. I don't know how the kit said to finish the edges so I just wrapped a ton of yarn and added the braided trim with hot glue. I tried one with ribbon and it looked bad.

I tried to transfer a picture to embroider and could never get it to work out, so I'm interested to see how you do! I think they both looked pretty good, but can see where they'd be tricky to embroider!

Days 14 and 15...

Finished a scarf! This took me so much longer than I thought, each square was over an hour of crocheting...

And I took the two pie patterns, sloshed then together and tweaked them, and came up with this...

Still not sure about the whipped cream, but I like the added pan flange and the crust.

Patty - what a cool party - I love the make-your-own bookmarks especially!

Jennie - thanks! There were 3 puzzles - a number code based on the digits of e (the same as the stripes on Tom's hat), a complete the quote rhyming couplet, and a Japanese style picross puzzle that revealed a heart when filled in - it was fun, Tom answered then over breakfast in bed Smiley

Class: SoAR
House: ravenclaw
Project: guess what? More blanket squares!
Knitted on needles inherited from my Nan! How's that for crafty birthrite?

For Valentines and a Birthday party I have almost half my homework done already!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Apparition
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Kitty Bookmarks
Project Page Link: -
Brief Description: Reading books helps transport you to a different place, but usually not all in one sitting.  So in comes the kitty bookmarks to save your spot.  I drew these kitties and photoshopped them with instructions for the craft at my daughter's cat themed birthday party.  ...while I drew them, the idea and kitty placement is completely stolen from pinterest.
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Arithmancy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Balloon Animal Choices
Project Page Link: -
Brief Description: To communicate what balloon animal choices kids in line have, I've drawn up this menu.  I drew all the pictures and colored them in photoshop.
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Astronomy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Cat Cookies
Project Page Link: -
Brief Description: For a cat themed party you need cat themed treats!  These are basic sugar cookies with royal frosting.  The royal frosting is in 3 colors: white, yellow, pink.  I'm not the happiest with the sugar cookie recipe, but here's the royal frosting:
2 lbs powdered sugar
1/3 cup meringue powder
3/4 cup warm water
2 TBSP oil free flavoring
Mix water and meringue powder with paddle attachment on low speed until mostly dissolved.  Add flavorings and mix.  Add sugar and start mixer on lowest speed.  Once everything has been combined, stop mixer and scrape down sides.  Turn mixer to medium-high and beat for 5 minutes.
*The consistency changes for outlining and flooding with the addition of more water.  I'd suggest watching a youtube for the look and feel.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Care of Magical Creatures
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Chocolate Kiss Decorations
Project Page Link: -
Brief Description: Like the Occamy, these little kisses come in silver packaging.  Both silver cases open up to showcase what is inside.  These kisses are made from wood, painted and sanded to give texture.
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Divination
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Balloon Column(s)
Project Page Link: -
Brief Description: This balloon column has a repeating pattern as the spiral of balloons soars upwards.  I made two, but was waiting to take a picture until they were set up at the event.  But smart me, I didn't take one, doh.  So we just get to see the single.  Use your imagination and double it!
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Headmistress/Dragon Heartstring
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Balloon Backdrop
Project Page Link: -
Brief Description: Had to make a picture backdrop for a Valentine's Dance and saw an idea like this on the internet.  Created from the heart with hearts for Valentine's.  Also with the medium (balloons) it is a bit tempermental because they can pop if not handled delicately, or for no reason at all.
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Herbology
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Warriors Game
Project Page Link: -
Brief Description: Again for the cat party!  My daughter scoped out a sequence game for cats she thought would be a fun game, but with the $25+ pricetag I wasn't playing.  I came home and made it by copying other people's Warrior Cat drawings from the internet and printing them into tiny squares.  The squares were pasted all over a poster board and whoa looks so confusing!  Was a fun game though, the girls liked it and bonus it was warrior cats and not just regular cats.  Plus it was made all from stash!

Subject: Care of Magical Creatures
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Balloon Twisting Apron
Brief Description: Balloon Animals are magical creatures filled with air.  To be able to care for them well they must be put in a safe and tidy place. You dont want them hurt before the air fills them and the magic begins.  To give them that special home I will make a balloon apron to transfer them around until they find their adoptive homes.  It will be a half apron with lots of pockets for fat magical balloons and Velcro straps for the skinny magical balloons.  Havent decided how I want it to look yet, but basically this http://www.mbd2.com/EWN/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Apron_Deluxe.jpg  I will need fabric, a clasp and strap, interfacing, possibly will need to learn to use snaps.  This will probably take me more than a month, but if it doesnt I will make a chicken egg collecting apron as well.
