1  Baba Yaga Haunted House in Completed Projects by sheepBlue on: October 08, 2019 06:16:08 PM
I am personally a huge chicken when it comes to haunted houses, but one haunted house I always found fascinating is the Baba Yaga haunted house so why not create my own!

I'm not sure why I love mashing weird things that don't go together...well...together, but making these bird feet out of wire and hot glue is always the best.

Thanks to Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts for the opportunity and supplies to make this!

Glad you like it faemystique!

Here's another shot of the necklace (pre-final trim up of the dangly bits)

Also credit where it's due: the card is one of the fabulous gelli prints from kwality570 I believe, and the yarn is all handspun I've gotten from lovely craftsters, though I've hoarded these for so long that I'm not quite sure who exactly.

I received this amazing pour canvas from curiousfae a couple of weeks ago and have been very tardy in posting. It does not have any indication of my lack of love for this, as it is so so so cool!!! She used a vibrant copper paint that makes the whole thing shimmer beautifully in the sun.

Thank you curiousfae, I love it so much!!

I received from faemystique yesterday! It was a nice way to end the day.

She took inspiration from a lot of the mixed media, layered pieces I have on my pinterest board and I love the tactile quality of it all.

She also made me a beautifully layered brooch with so much stitching.

And there were some fun extras included.

Thank you so much faemystique!!

Hey All! I love all the stitches. GBBO, Stranger things, Disney castle and birthday cake - it's all fabulous. I finally finished the stumpwork flower example I started for the Asheville meetup. Defintely a bright flashy flower you can find all over my neighborhood right now  Smiley

And then I added an eye because that's what I do  Grin

Ahh I received an amazing GBBO package from Abbeeroad today  Cheesy

We must have been on the same wave-length because she embroidered me a freaking Mary Berry prayer candle!!! Complete with her tasteful pearls, and a lifestyle of perfection to model myself after. I love her expression and the stitching is perfect <3

She made me 3 awesome dish towels to show off in my kitchen, and keep me ever-mindful of the spirit of GBBO that I should hope to espouse when getting my bake on   Grin

And a few extras - a cute mini bunting and some fun socks to rock when binging some more GBBO.

Abbee, you're the best! Don't let Candice bum you out too much  Wink

I found the pictures I took of some bakes a friend and I did after she bought one of the official GBBO cook books!

Our first adventure was a lemon swiss roll - rolling that baby was scary!! But we didn't get as much cracking as feared...also the layered slices of lemon on top were my attempt at a fancy garnish. Needs some work haha.

And then later we did two loaves, a plaited saffron and a cheesy something something (insert I can't remember exactly what it was) loaf. The proving time was serious - I see why they have cups of tea at the ready for all the slow bits in between.

Anyone else have a fancy (or not fancy) bake they want to share?  Cheesy
