Oh man, do I ever like these! And the most recent is just amazeballs! AND hilarious, just like Ron!

They make me want to go back and watch them all over again (minus the last season)!

Oh, fatewineroses.

This little Medusa is one of the sweetest little cuties ever. After reading the posts, and learning more about her twisted mythology, I really appreciate your plushy topic.

But your execution is truly superb. And I agree with pottermouth about her slithering locks, as well as Patraws commentary on her casual look. I feel as if that's her serious editorial look, and she is FIERCE.

Dead.Nice.

I'm so excited it fit! I have never made something without having the fittable object in front of me (I'm ridiculously bad with ease). I am super stoked you like it!




I made two reversed mandragora, and used batting so it will help with heat retention for the tea. I installed 19 (18?) little snaps to accommodate size at any location for handle, lid, and spout. I also left the leaves unstitched to be loosey-goosey. But looks like it fits well over the belly! In a worst case, they could be placemats or weird doilies inspired by gaming.

I struggle with paint, so all your details (in both pieces) are really appreciated. I like to see how you handled certain aspects (like bleeding the paint over into the printed piece, blurring the line so well!). Thank you so much! The Yarn Dragon redux is just fantastic. I can feel myself cyclying back into fiber as I type!

Namaste

I went back to check how many partners we are allowed. I am strangely and utterly fascinated by these soft little works of art. Each one is a little bit of fabric and thread happiness.

I feel like I 'get it'. If there's a patchy bandwagon, I'm definitely a groupie!

I received from smileyyogini today! It was such a welcome surprise, as I confess I was having a bit of a rough go. So I left the unopened package on my desk as a happy 'survived the inundation' Tuesday!

And look what happy, lovely, sweet, precious gift she made me:



It's a stylized Nessie painted monster box! I just adore anthropomorphic beings and these remind me of Stephen Cosgrove. They are very endearing. I couldn't stop looking at the detail. Funny, I didn't know I wanted this until I held it in my hands.

She even painted the sides with complimentary pastel sky layers:



Do you see all the non-primary colors? Ohhhhhh, baby! And in a functional object!

Inside the storage box, smileyyogini also sent a wonderful Yarn Dragon painted on a canvas tote:



I want to lock in all the detail, so will hit the image with a fabric safe clear coat. I would be very sad if I ruin the paint detail, and definitely plan on using it. Can you see all the highs and lows, with soft shading? The lady is uber skilled!

Thank you so much, smileyyogini, for sending two really thoughtfully crafted items. I wish I would have doubled down as well, and am now desperate to know if mine even fits!

You were a wonderful partner - I hope you give them their own posts. I have enjoyed connecting with you!

Oh I'm glad Roving's package arrived!! You deserve the extra spoiling my friend! I owed you some craftiness for my awesome sewing machine feet that you sent me for no reason other than your own generous heart. Happy to send you something in return. Smiley


Good karma happens too. (She hangs out with some seriously good peeps.)

Y'all are sew wonderful. (see what I did there?)

I loved choose your own adventure! And only tried my hand at writing one once, and once was enough! So many moving parts!

This is an incredible gift!  Supremely excellent!
