391  Sisters and Nephews birthday cakes in Dessert by Belladune on: November 12, 2009 09:47:53 AM
My Nephew and My sisters birthdays are 9 days apart.  I was put in charge of both cakes Smiley  My sis helped me out with the Pablo cake, and decided fondant is not nearly as terrible to work with as she expected.   That's what I told her Smiley
Her cake was her favorite color and flower.  She turned 30 btw... I just didn't paint the number on her cake

393  International day of felt! - post your pictures here in Felting: Completed Projects by Belladune on: October 03, 2009 09:37:46 AM
October 3rd was marked as the fisrt ever International day of Felt!!
I, personally, am trying to use it as a means of reaching out to my community to see if there are any other crafty/artsy types out here.  The population is less then 300 in town with a few hundred others spread out ruraly.  There has to be at least one or two others lol.
Lets start at my house:
My first ever nuno felted item.  it is a rectangle with limitless possibilities, and may end up becoming a cowl -if it doesn't end up buggy, but its quite cool out so I think maybe the bugs are sleeping now Smiley.  

In the background of this one you can see my door knob hanger:

Here it is up close and personal!

Next stop is the locally owned grocery store,  Another of the "door" hangers, hung on the bars, so that it wont get caught in the door and get wrecked.  I did stick tags on it with a link to FeltUnited.com, and my info on the back, in hopes someone might take one and call me inquiring further into felting.

And lastly the bank.  I also made the ladies some rope necklaces, but did not get pictures of those.
good shot of the flower:

good shot of the bowl:

and the display as I put it out.  they also had some of thier information on the table for a gas give away... but eh, can't fight to much right?  besides, my flower makes it look all look really pretty!

have a happy international day of felt!

okay, so that's what a top view of it looks like, right?  see the right most portion, where the shaft (that's my technical term) of the flyer comes out the bobbin and onto the holder upper thingy?  you should beable to just lift the shaft directly up.  It'll feel stiff, like it doesn't want to let go, but it will.

395  from pink to bubbles :D in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by Belladune on: September 27, 2009 11:09:11 AM
So our bathroom was pink.... pink walls, pink curtains... very pink. now don't get me wrong I like pink, but not in my bathroom, not in that quantity anyway.

Here's the result of a couple cans of paint:

sorry, this ones dark... but it give a fuller view of the bubbles.
Here's a

before/during in which you can still see the pink:

this is as finished as the bathroom will get for a while.  I just really couldn't stand the pink bathroom... next redo we will have the tub and toilet moved, and a new vanity and new floors... Good thing my hubbys a plumber.... Cheesy  But for now a couple cans of paint will do.  And belive you me, there will be bubbles in the next re-do too!

k sleeping beauty drum carder, made in New Zealand
Don't know many specifics and the lady selling doesn't seem to know much about it, but she did send me a pic.  here it is:

Doesn't look to me like a very fine cloth, but I've never seen a carder up close and personal.  But the finer the cloth the more I'll beable to do with it, right?  She wants 300$ for it, but I'd dicker with her, so hopefully I could manage to get it for that much including shipping or perhaps less....
whatcha think?

So here it is in all its fibery goodness. 2 pots of dye (red and yellow for the big international day of felt)  Glaubers salt, Orvus paste(both of which are supposed to get me more even results, which will be wonderful!)  Tussah silk-2oz from the silk weaving place on granville, and about 5 oz (50grams each) of assorted colored merino wool from Shoppel Wolle on granvile island.  Yum Smiley

Great yarns everyone!!
lechaton, great first yarn!  
Jazzturtle, great yarns, as usual.  now that I know yarn can be sucessfully spun onto wire I'm actually going to give it a go....
Goldfish girl, those are great. love the orange blue red... It looks like it may make a really fun toque!
Lado, that dog hair yarn is great!

okay as promised in the random spinny babble thread: the yarn I made from the roving Oddacity sent!!!
Before it was plied: (okay that was about 1/2 way through the plying process)

After it was plied:  250yrds BFL/Coridale (one sigle of each) approx. 4oz.

And this is Shadow priest all spun up:

I may get a chance later today to add a pic of what a shadow priest looks like, So those of you that don't play world of warcraft can see where my inspiration came from Smiley

here's the pic of inspiration for the shadow priest yarn Smiley

maybe not the best pic, but it shows where ther blue comes from ( the spell I'm shooting out called mind flay)  And I didn't have time to get out my shadow fiend, but thats where the black comes from. So the sequence in the yarn goes shadow form (the purples) then mindflay, then shadowfiend, mindflay, shadow form Smiley
