<----------- Here's a start
2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: Skunk and Ermine Miniatures on: April 02, 2008 09:20:43 PM
Thank you.
LOL... I can do so much better then this. It was a quick slop job and I'm just glad they came out looking decent at all. The recipient LOVED them when I gave them as gifts.

Glad you like it. The leather dried like potato chips, so, I chipped it apart by color (well, I tried to do that Smiley  ) and sent it to the fly-tyers.

Muller's Lane... the dog hair should make very fine, warm items.
It's doubly special when it's from your own pet.
Thanks for doing the spellcheck!

BTW this yarn is very pleasing in the color, and overall quite pretty.

I was thinking the same: either Kahtadin (hair sheep - possibly mis-spelled) or a really coarse, long-fiber wool, but didn't want to discount the possibility that it could be dog hair.

Is that dog hair?
7  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: New Meaning of Handspun on: April 01, 2008 03:57:31 PM
I made another one today (same dimensions), and I still have 1 little ball of quiviut left over. I used up the other ball, as thread to make decorative edging on a fur. Smiley
(sewing with my own handspun thread = never dome that before, coolness.)
I might make yet another scarf tonight.
I found 2 gorgeous sables in one of those nether-room storage bins at the warehouse, so, it's going to be dynamite when finished.
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Re: quiver and gun cozy (by my sweetheart) on: March 31, 2008 04:06:39 PM
Hildare, that quiver is SWEET. That is trophy room material for sure.

I have one like it (with a quiver inside the fox pelt, to keep the arrows from poking through the fox), but mine has painted turkey feathers in a Tobacco Society bundle formation.
If he swaps out the crow feathers he can sell it (and get several hundred bucks for it) - but not with the crow feathers still on it. Silly law. Look for the all-black secondary wing (i.e. wing rounds) feathers from a peacock.

A braintanned fox done with the legs as the strap, that's *perfect*.

Is the braintanned fox, also smoked, or left unsmoked? The fur color looks pretty good, which is why I was asking. I thought that the smoke process generally discolored the fur.

... but does he get mad at you for calling a gun case a "cozy"? It sounds, effeminate. Not something you think of when you think "firepower". LOL. (just razzin ya)

Sure, it looks like a scarlet macaw! Definitely pssitacine.
Your little one in the costume is adorable.
Great work, keep it up Smiley
10  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Easy Peasy Swap - sendouts 4/7 on: March 31, 2008 11:30:22 AM
I don't have my feedback yet, but asked a couple days ago. I guess we're all waiting until April 8-11 or something?
