I saw that fabric thing, looked really fun, like tie die Smiley Lillieandpearl, I'm so sad it happened to a whole art work for you!!! At least mine is tiny Smiley

So, I just spent $25 to buy some tracing paper! And, I had a 50% off coupon!

But, I didn't use the coupon on the tracing paper... I used it on an embroidery hoop stand! Now, I'm not going to break it out for the diptych hoops, but I do have some other embroidery projects waiting in the wings...

Nicely done, audio! I really like the apothecary jar and the patchwork bag, and the "handmade" pendant is clever. Your element sign inspired me to go and take a peek at the Periodic Table to see if I could spell my name. I knew I could use Carbon, Iodine, Nitrogen and Yttrium, but was stuck for a "D." Then, I realized that there was Dysprosium (Dy), so I could eliminate Ytrrium! Sweet!

I'll have to find a swap to join so I can make one for myself (because I can't let myself get sucked into making a Wist...). I'm sure a science/geek swap will come along eventually!

ETA: And, I just have to thread the needle and I can begin my embroidery!

Science IS an Art

Thanks! I do have a few other fake swaps to clear from the queue, so I'll check them out (although I was a participant in the Science is Art Swap, I think).

But, along the lines of some science geekery... here's my Diptych Hoopla! I had originally planned on attempting something like this for my fake Star Swap, but didn't have everything I needed (or the time to make it). Since I still wanted to do it, the Diptych Hoopla swap was the perfect reason!



They represent the constellations Orion (The Hunter) and Scorpius (The Scorpion). According to the Greek myth, Artemis created the Scorpion to sting Orion for his arrogance. The 2 constellations are never "up" at the same time (some say Orion is hiding from its sting, others say Orion is on the hunt for the scorpion).

They also represent a couple of things to me:
-Orion was the first constellation I ever learned when I went to pick my sister and her boyfriend up at the train station at 2 am one Thanksgiving break. On the way back, when we were swapping drivers (it was a few hours to drive), my sister's boyfriend pointed out Orion in the sky.

- A couple of summers ago, I had an awesome astronomy experience at the University of Arizona and Kitt Peak Observatory. We had a chance to head to the Sonoran Desert Museum and wander around as it got dark. Because it was summer, and because we were far enough south, we could see the entire constellation of Scorpius in the sky above the desert. And, thanks to the cute little kids running around with their portable blacklights, we were able to see all of the scorpions on the stone walls that we had been resting on not long before (scorpions glow under blacklight).

So, the 2 constellations belong together for 2 different reasons!

And, that embroidery hoop stand that I bought earlier today came in VERY handy, as it turned out. I had to learn how to do French knots (I used Jenny Hart's tutorial on the Sublime Stitching blog) and couldn't manage it unless the hoop was held by the frame. I only suffered one injury (perfect stab under the thumbnail... but it only bled a smidgen)!

I used glow-in-the-dark floss and they glow faintly against the black fabric. I left the backs unfinished (my partner hasn't decided yet if she's going to leave the hoops natural or paint them black).

So, now I can add another fake swap to my list! But, I should probably wait until my red feedback turns to green Wink
