That sewing shrine is so perfect and tiny!! I love the scissors and scrabble tiles the most  Cheesy

I have also been playing with tiny things. I just finished a bunch of experimental embroideries (some of which went to Mrs. alwaysinmyroom!) playing with stumpwork and texture. I made a post for it but here are some highlights:







I'm really kind of obsessed with it now and am thinking of new projects to keep playing with more stumpwork!

I also made this experimental weaving for alwaysinmyroom from beautiful handspun yarns I've received from various craftsterers (A2K, LeapFeetFirst, freestyle!) that deserved to be displayed and appreciated for their texture and vivid color!







Lots of experimenting with new things. I am having fun  Grin

And rejiggered a couple of display stands by attaching cheap picture frames.

I love the stumpwork and the weaving!

Good idea using frames as display cases!

Sheepblue...I am sure many people are now coveting your stumpwork...I had to look it up as I forgot what it was....now I remember...there was an incredible octopus tentacle that made such an impression on me....great job on all the pieces...especially MINE! Grin

One of my partners received in the OWS swap...

Originally, I picked her for an apron, but once I found out it was her 4-year old's birthday, I switched up on her and made him some fun felt food!
I got this a "kit" from Etsy...so much fun to make since it was mostly what I consider summer food!



But, I did not want to leave Mama out, so I made her a dotee since she said she wanted one on her list:



Now the long wait for my international partner to receive... Grin

I am loving all the craftyness on here. That weaving is very neat! I love the textures in it, too. And the randomness of the pattern/colors.

And the felt "lunch" is very cute. I know a 4 year old will love it! In fact, my 22 year old would get a kick out of it. I will have to remember come Christmas time, and stuff her stocking with things like that. And pincushions come to mind when I see the hamburger buns  Grin

Crochet lettuce is fun to make.
I have a foam puppet that I made, called "Uncle Samwich"...he has American cheese {that thin foam stuff} And bologny...since that is American politics, too  Grin And I randomly ruffled the lettuce. No pattern...Just lots of single and double/tripple crochet to increase the edges and get it to ruffle. Just ideas for other members wishing to make these types of things. They are pretty easy to pattern yourself. We all know what food looks like  Cheesy

I have not kept count on my projects this year. But I am finishing up a swap that turned out pretty cool. You can look to see it soon on the Enchanted Swap Gallery. Mine will have living moss. Think Chia Pet  Grin

I am so glad that I have gotten back into crafting. I took a downhill break for a depression for a while. But I am back up and running with scissors! And glue, and painted/stained fingers. And little bits all over the floor. Housework can wait!  Tongue Not really, I try to keep up on it.

I need to repair my sewing machine and finish a project for alwaysinmyroom, and an angel package for rscowtown's little friend with health issues. That one I may just hand stitch. A little mermaid stuffy. And can't wait to jump into some Hoopla art. And the embroidered inchie things. That is rattleing in my brain. I am even dreaming about it  Roll Eyes A journal of my life. Parts I want to forget, but I will stitch them anyway. They are part of me.

This pet thread on here has me all torn up...but in a loving good way. So sad to share all the passings of pets, but I have lost my share, too. So I can relate to all our furry babies.

Anyways, enough of my ramblings. I look forward to this thread and what members post. It is always random, and interesting to see what other craftsters are making  Grin

sorry--had to brag a little about lindy321 and sheepblue...and also kittykill...here is the coffee area of my kitchen...recognize the art work? Grin



Also, here is how I am displaying the spider sheepblue sent to me:



ha ha When anyone goes for the hall light, they better watch out! Grin

AND...I made a globe for the garden using a Craftster video tutorial!! It really sparkles a lot more, but I got the picture right when it was starting to rain...

That garden globe is really neat. What did you use for it? I think I have those glass beads laying around here somewhere, so this could just be the project they're waiting for :-)
