Wow, Eiseldora, what a cool presentation!  And congratulations on your success!

I've been working on my research project a few hours a day, but oh my goodness, I am such a sloooow stitcher it feels like I'm making no progress!  Realistically though, I think I'm probably close to being about half done.  Somehow I managed to lose an entire skein of a very necessary floss color, so I'm going to have to make a trip to the craft store at some point, too.  (But I'm still hoping it will just magically reappear. Roll Eyes )

I have tried freezer paper in the printer after seeing people using it as a transfer medium on pinterest so many times, but my printer printed a blurry mess on it. Does anyone know if there is a trick to making it come out looking like the actual picture you are trying to print?

I have had great luck printing on freezer paper.  I just tape it plastic side down to a regular piece of paper, print, then cut to create my stencil.  Is that what you had in mind?  I don't know about laser jet, but I do know that ink jet printers will not print on the plastic side of the freezer paper very well. 

Nope, not for a stencil - You are supposed to be able to transfer the image from the waxy/plastic side to a wooden surface, but I can't get it to print anything clear on the plastic side.

In that case, I'm guessing that you need the kind of printer that uses toner instead of ink.  Toner doesn't smear around like ink does.  I could be wrong, as I said, just guessing.

Made my first piece of felt ever, from my own sheep's wool, for my Spooky Moon research project.  The moon shape turned out much more defined than I was afraid it was going to do.  I'll be making several more of these various ways, my next attempt will be nuno felting onto black silk.

why?  why did I decide to do this project with so little time left?!  about the only time I'm not working on it is when I'm sleeping (and I'm not sleeping all that much), eating, or showering.  otherwise, I'm working like crazy, but I feel like I'm not getting anywhere!!!  Angry  Angry  Angry

I thought I'd show you all my current geeky baby. It's a 28 string, 8 (nine if you count the silver strands
I added to the black as stars) color friendship bracelet featuring the TARDIS (which is two shades of blue 'cause I ran out of one  Grin). I used pattern #71068 on friendship-bracelets.net, except I changed the colors to make it sort of look like the color scheme of  Van Gogh's Exploding TARDIS. Overall it's supposed to look a bit like the TARDIS flying through space/time. It's taking me ages to finish!



I'm trying to decide how I'm going to tie it when I'm done. I'm normally a traditional knot type of girl, but I've seen some on Pinterest that add some cute clasps to the end like these. Opinions?

That's an epic friendship bracelet, leather and lace! I like the knots myself as well, but the older I get, the more I like the ability to remove my jewelry (work and stuff, blech). I think that would be the only reason to go the clasp route. Unless you found a really cool one that went perfectly with the Tardis in space/exploding theme.

Awesome moon felting, Ludi!

Thanks, Abbee!  I'm embarrassed it took me this long to try it, it's not that difficult!  Tongue

Been trying to catch up on the posts and this reminded me that I'm still working on my research project:

I proposed my project a while ago and still haven't started it  Roll Eyes oops, actually, that's not entirely true. Just the other day I cut out squares so I guess I started!!

question: is there a time limit to when it needs to be done (other than before the end of the games)? Thanks

I might just have to start bringing my WIPs to work.  Cheesy
