Brief Description: Last March, I embroidered the first word of this project and didn't pick it up again until a couple weeks ago. Shocked It took maybe 8 hours on and off to complete. It's going to be a pillow eventually, but that will be a separate project.

Project Name: Ferret Gate

Brief Description: Not as elaborate as the June Rebellion's barricade, but sufficient to keep my ferrets from stealing everything that's upstairs. I've had the playpen panels since summer, and finally got around to cleaning and painting them. It hangs on hooks in the doorway, and folds in half to store on more hooks on the hallway wall.

2  Teensy Bottle Cap Magnet Shrine in Completed Projects by Acadian Driftwood on: Today at 07:45:50 AM
I was lucky to be paired with craftylittlemonkey in the Positive Affirmations swap, and she had magnets and tiny shrines on her questionnaire. It wasn't originally going to be this tiny... but then I decided to use words cut out from an old book, and they looked lost in my larger tin.

Ingredients: Bottle cap, painted black inside. Blue paper, painted with tiny stars. Words cut from an old 007 novel. Golden bangle, fallen from the fringe of a jingly skirt wrap. Stone bunny, in stash FOREVER. Star sparkles inside, round sparkles outside. Bits of purple yarn. Wire charm, received in a craftster supply swap ages ago. And a feather I found outside, I think from a downy or hairy woodpecker.

The magnet on the back came from one of those papermate datebooks with the magnetic closure strap. I cannibalize everything before getting rid of it! In the pictures, it is sticking to a nail in the windowframe. I like finding unexpected places to stick magnets, like running one over your drywall until you find a screw.  Cheesy

I had fun placing all the tiny bits with tweezers! I'm glad clm liked this peaceful little nighttime scene.

Aw I love the snow leopard's little face! One of the animals on my list doesn't exactly have a "face..." so Rosie1981 went for accuracy. Cheesy Check out my amazing painted nudibranch!

It's even beautiful on the underside!

I love colorful seaslugs, and this little jewel is a perfect fit with my other ocean dotees. Thank you!

Here is my thing for myself: a piece of embroidery I've been working on during my evening job. I've been doing some elder care, which can be taxing in some respects, and also involves a good amount of sitting around for me. I take my stitching with me to keep my hands busy, and I've actually gotten a lot of great responses to this project at the assisted living place!

Right now it's just a square of fabric, but I'm going to sew it to a throw pillowcase eventually.

WiccadWitch's landscape painting is GORGEOUS! I just want to walk right onto that hillside.

Look at this amazing notebook clm made for me! The blue is fabric that she dyed (in good company I hear), and there's also a little pen decoration and a craftster trading card! My first one of those, now I may have to join the next swap. Smiley

I love all the stitching on the front. I've had this journal for a few days now, and every evening I've taken a moment to write down some good things that happened that day. It's really been nice to bring that focus to end my days. Thank you clm!

This is my favorite swap gallery in a long time. <3 So I'm glad to be able to add to the amazingness - a framed embroidery by dharma_rebel!

I put it under mature tags for language - if you have censoring on, here is a glimpse of it.

She dyed the cloth herself, in my favorite color combo of all time! I think it's absolutely perfect. It makes me happy every time I glance at it.

BLU IS ONE OF THESE HEADSTONES MY DAD oh my god I laughed so hard reading them. Brilliant idea and execution (pun intended).

Catch-up post for day 1: ramen recipe. The recipe itself is easy, but I've been meaning to take pictures and write it up for craftster for ages.
