Looks great Wulf! I think you look very regal in your picture, not anesthetized at all Tongue

You look very handsome and regal in your new smock...all that gathering at the yoke...lots of work went into it...are the cuffs ruffled as well?

I also like the combo of fabrics...

Yes, the cuffs are gathered onto a narrow band (with a very tidy buttonhole) and peek out past the edge in a tightly-pleated ruffle. Very classy.  Wink

That shirt! What an awesome first complete garment! You have it in your blood, SP! I've only sewn once for a male adult and it didn't came near as neat!

I LOVE the felt acorn and the brown scarf! <3 And the wand! So pretty.

Wulf I am so glad you like it! It was certainly an adventure to make.

It looks like you got everything ironed out and I'm so glad it fits! You'll have to show us pictures later with the coat you think it will look nice with.

Hi everyone,
Our lovely hostess Hawkeyes_girl and I partnered up, and I think she has been a tad poorly. She has Pm'd me to say she received and liked the items but Im going to take a weight off her shoulders and post you guys what I sent her.
She asked me to make her a felted goddess, similar to the one I made for the Beltane swap. I asked her to give me some ideas of themes, and she told me that she has a liking for the four directions. I therefore made her a goddess carrying fire and water sitting on the earth with a little butterfly to represent air. The hare at the back is her spirit animal.

Next I made her a little autumnal pouch from some scrap leather I found at our recent medieval fair, I think its texture was just perfect for an autumnal (fall) leaf

And finally, I was inspired by something written on her questionnaire about being outside in the rain and also on her profile about loving thunderstorms. She had also told me in conversation that she would like something representing the three Phases of woman, that being Maiden - Mother - Crone, I used three different native female figures of the different ages.
Though these figures appear in my painted work a lot, I have never painted on fabric before, and this was painted on an old linen napkin.

I hope you all enjoy, and Hawkeyes_Girl, I hope you are ok with me posting the photos x recover well lovely lady


LATEST project - I'm compiling a "handed down" recipes boom and so if I get you in a swap, would you be so kind to find a recipe from your childhood. type it up - if you want to decorate, then please do :

There was a woman who felted
And felted all day long

All three are just beautiful, PEST! I don't even think I can choose a favourite, but it might be the banner. The combination of the painting and embroidery is perfect on the linen. And you're right about that leather being perfect for a leaf - I have some almost exactly like that and I'm sorely tempted to copy your idea!
