1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Macrame Boho Feather Wallhanging on: November 06, 2018 04:28:29 PM
Quick little macrame feather wallhanging... made from trimmed fringe ends and a branch that fell from my tree during a storm. Also experimented with dip-dying!

Hi, 85%confusion!  I swapped with you a looonnnggg time ago!  Glad to see you back!

Thank you for the links!

It's been a crazy few years for me, but I'm settled now, and hopefully back for good. Missed this community!

Looks elegant and the hanging tassel on the bottom is a nice touch.

I've never macramed anything, but I agree that thrift stores are a good place to look for books and such on the subject.

Those bookends in the last photo are pretty sweet too!

Thank you! Those bookends... straight from a thrift shop. $1.99 😁 
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Small Macrame Plant Hanger - First Attempt on: September 09, 2018 03:21:31 PM
Finally giving macram a go. Made a small plant hanger to hang in a narrow bit of wall between two windows. I'm pretty pleased, even though it's a very simple one, and definitely want to do more projects. Does anyone have any good resources or book suggestions you'd be willing to share, so that I can learn more knots and techniques?

That is fantastic! Love it!
5  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Discussion and Questions / Teneriffe Lace on: September 24, 2015 06:20:02 AM
For some reason, the more obscure a form of needlework is, the more I want to try it... So, about 9 years ago I stumbled upon teneriffe lace. And I started looking on ebay, ecrater, in every antique shop and thrift store, hobby shops, etc. for the tool needed. The problem was, I couldn't really find any information on it, and didn't know the actual name. Then, just the other day I was on ebay and I found it! Lucky me, it was a buy it now, so... I did. A few short days later it's in my hot little hands and I am attempting to make sense of the directions. But, I thought I'd share my first attempt with you all, in hopes that there is a closet teneriffe maker on here who can give me some tips! (And I chose this forum because the technique is a combination of weaving and knotting to make the designs. Mods, please feel free to move the post as necessary!)

Here the wheels are... still unopened in its original packaging!

It was agony to open the envelope, but I finally made myself do it.

Progress shot.

Reviving an 11 year old topic! Crazy...

I actually was searching on here for teneriffe in hopes that some amazing craftster on here does it, as I am just starting to learn. Few results pop up on pinterest, and this was the only thread that mentions it on craftster.

So to answer the OP's question, I do shuttle tatting, bargello needlework, swedish weaving, kogin embroidery, and all the usual normal, ordinary things like knit, crochet, embroider, etc. 
7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / mail art! on: March 29, 2015 07:20:53 PM
I spent a lazy Sunday recuperating from the work week by lounging around creating mail art for my step-daughter. I don't draw very often, so this was a challenge. I also learned I need to plan my piece better, but all in all,  I am happy with the results. I also need to make sure that I grab the right marker... one flower has a petal with too heavy of an outline. And for whatever reason, my phone will not let me post the picture in portrait format.

Thank you, LimeRiot, for flipping my pic. That was aggravating me! I tried it every way I could think of but it kept flipping when I posted.

Thank you, stillatthetop! The sweatshirt was mostly cotton, I think... The paint was by Deval. I will definitely try your tips. Much appreciated!
9  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: What to do with 8X10 in. hand marbled paper? on: October 06, 2013 08:37:01 PM
Ooooh, how cool! I have always wanted to try marbling paper, but have never gottena round to it. Even bought a book on it.  Yours is gorgeous!

Something special... Maybe a stellated dodecahedron ornament?

10  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Stenciled Sweatshirt for Swap on: October 06, 2013 07:49:35 PM
In the Back to Hogwarts 4 Swap, I really wanted to make my partner something useful. I ended up buying a sweatshirt and using freezer paper stencils to make her a house pride shirt.

I had my daughter try it on so I could make sure the letter placement down the sleeve was ok.

The crest is obviously not a true house crest. It's modified from one I found online.

 The font is called Lumos - a free Harry Potter font I found online. And seriously... no idea why the picture is upside down on here. It's upside right in my picture folder... And I have tried flipping it and it just won't post flipped. Amazing Mod wanna rescue me?

It took three applications of the yellow screen printing paint to get the yellow bright enough against the black. After the first application, I was like, "Uh oh..." It looked as though I had spilled mustard on a shirt and hastily wiped it off. I was seriously worried!

Any tips on working with bright colors on dark sweatshirts? All three of my kids want a house pride sweatshirt now...
