Challenge/Battle/Alert: July Randomizer
Team/Ninja: Commercial Free All-Stars
Project Geekdom (if any): Pagan/Wicca, braiding
Bonus Points: Discovery, Nerdy
Project Name: Handfasting cord
Brief Description:  Handfasting dates back to medieval Europe, and as noted in previous posts, kumihimo is an ancient Japanese braiding technique. A family friend officiates weddings and she and my mom have been making handfasting cords for some of her ceremonies for the past couple of years or so, but this was my first one. The cord was made using three colors of rattail.  It is 6' (a little longer with the medallions), and from start to finish took about 8-9 hours.

that is really neat LovelyMiss.  I'm especially interested in it since it uses a Japanese technique (and I'm obsessed with Japan) and the fact that if I ever meet the right guy, I plan on having a handfasting ceremony (I don't believe in traditional marriage.  I mean I do for other people, but it's just not for me).  I'd love to have a handmade cord.  that would just add such a personal touch.  Smiley

Challenge/Battle/Alert: July Textbook Guts & Glory!

Team:  The Team that goes Bump in the Night

Project Geekdom:  Classic Spooky - Edgar Allan Poes Fall of the House of Usher

Bonus Points: Nerdy, Super Nerdy, Discovery

Project Name:  A Morbid Acuteness of the Senses

Project thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=425940.0#axzz2aHKhnurT

Brief Description:  This work represents the Nervous System, as embodied by Roderick Ushers painfully delicate senses.

He entered, at some length, into what he conceived to be the nature of his malady. It was, he said, a constitutional and a family evil, and one for which he despaired to find a remedy - a mere nervous affection, he immediately added, which would undoubtedly soon pass off. It displayed itself in a host of unnatural sensations. Some of these, as he detailed them, interested and bewildered me ; although, perhaps, the terms, and the general manner of the narration had their weight. He suffered much from a morbid acuteness of the senses ; the most insipid food was alone endurable; he could wear only garments of certain texture ; the odors of all flowers were oppressive ; his eyes were tortured by even a faint light ; and there were but peculiar sounds, and these from stringed instruments, which did not inspire him with horror.



I was strongly influenced by Vincent Prices depiction of Roderick Usher in the Roger Corman House of Usher film.  This is the first time Ive done crazy quilting.  This was by far the most difficult embroidery Ive done.

My husband wants me to make this into a pillow.  Smiley

Project Name: Pterodactyl Sweater Clips
Brief Description: As soon as I saw the words "craft" and "prehistoric" in the same sentance, I knew dinosaurs were in my near future! ^_^ I made these Pterodactyl Sweater Clips by painting the them with emerald green nail polish, then simply adding badge backs and a length of chain. They were very easy to make, and I love how they turned out! ^_^

Thanks!  It was customized for an upcoming ceremony...the couple chose the symbols and cord colors.  I think it's pretty cool!  And hey, if you end up needing one and don't want to make your own, you can always PM me!  Cheesy

lightninglisa - awesome headpiece!  It's so pretty.  And I love your pterodactyls!

smileyyogini - your socks turned out great!  I totally want a pair of my own!

Ludi - oh my gosh, that is so freaking cool!  It does look like it would make a pretty sweet pillow, too!  I think that it would be a pillow I would never let anyone touch, though.  In one of those clear plastic bag things...on a shelf.  Tongue
