seeuudee! Is Hazel an Australian Shepherd?

No, she is a Blue Merle Border Collie, but has very similar colouring and markings to an Australian Shepherd.  Smiley
Cute! My mom just got a new Aussie puppy. She's an 8 month old bundle of unlimited energy. Cheesy

Ack! I can't believe I almost missed this round. I totally didn't see the signup thread until just now. (Thank you Wildfyre for checking with me!)

Clara had a ton of fun in Australia last round so I think she's got the traveling bug and will head back out for another adventure.

Clara is home from her stay with abuckshort in Australia! Grin

Everything all wrapped up:

There's an Australia kitchen towel, a pin with the skyline shape of the famous Sydney Opera House, a cute glass platipus from the Taronga Zoo, and a Mickey & Minnie scarf from London:

Ginger was VERY interested in sniffing the goodies. LOL

abuckshort also went to London during Clara's trip so Clara got to go to England too!

Whew!! After a bit of a delay due to hectic life issues, Hatty has finally said farewell to Florida and is on her way back to Australia!

She had fun on her Florida vacation but can't wait to go home and share her adventures with abuckshort. Grin

And that OWL (which was posted while I was typing this!) is amazing! such great work! The feathers painted on the back are perfect! is it paper mache? Clay?
I *think* it's a paper clay or air dry clay? It's not as heavy as full polymer clay would be. teag can you confirm?

That owl is amazing - I'm trying to imagine it at less than 4" - wow!
I actually measured and it's literally exactly 4"! Grin I wound up right at a 4" item myself. LOL

Maybe this will help for scale:

It's always hard to get perspective in a pic and cell phone pics are even worse about distorting size I think. Cheesy

Look at how awesome my owl is!! I love it! So neat and so much detail on the painting too. The little Jack-O-Lantern is just the icing on the cake. This is excellent. Thank you so much, teag!

47  itsy bitsy spider tee shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by phoenixfiredesigns on: October 07, 2016 01:59:37 PM
I made this for aisy in the Mini 13 days of Halloween swap! I was inspired by one on her pinterest.


20160919_145129 by May Turner, on Flickr

Bought a plain, black tee. And some detailed "lace" ribbon. I did a combination of hand sewing and a little fabric glue to attach the lace along the collar. Then I used glittery fabric paint to draw the spider and line attaching to the web.

I think it's super fun! Grin (Click pic for larger version!)

48  Ouija Board Shoes in Completed Projects by phoenixfiredesigns on: October 07, 2016 01:55:25 PM
I made these for aisy in the Mini 13 Days of Halloween swap. I've never done anything like it before but I got inspired by her love of Ouija boards and some other decorated shoes on pinterest.


20160919_145708 by May Turner, on Flickr

I bought a simple pair of black faux leather flats and printed out some various Ouija board images on my laser printer on regular printer paper and used Modge Podge High Gloss and just started laying pieces down. I was originally going to overlap and cover the whole shoe, but I wound up liking how it looked so I just repeated the same pattern on both shoes.

20160919_145733 by May Turner, on Flickr

I did several layers of Modge Podge, covering a shoe, letting it dry, then going back over. I used a standard foam craft brush.

I was so happy with how they came out! Grin

As of this morning's National Hurricane Center projections, I am outside the direct path of Hurricane Matthew. I'm in the purple box area on the West Coast of Florida; Matthew will likely be making landfall almost directly across the state from me on the East Coast.



That's not to say we might not get some weather. We probably will. But *fingers crossed* so long as the direct path stays easterly like this, I should be ok.

Saturday, we went to a local con and I entered the costume contest - and won! I won Best Thrifted Costume for my Marty McFly cosplay because it's an "assembled" costume since Marty wears "real" clothes vs a costume I hand sewed. I've never won a cosplay contest before so I was super excited! (I got a TON of cheers and woos when I came up and later, one of the judges said she LOVED my cosplay!)



Hatty, meanwhile, got to take a ride on a cart heading to Hogwarts:

So even though it was smaller, we had a fun day and I was thrilled with having been a winner! Grin
