LOL I worked on it EVEN MORE this morning, if you can believe it, trying to "fix" where I smudged the fabric paint on his foot by filling in using fabric markers.  For the main body I was experimenting with various Tim Holtz alcohol inks (the blobs are droplets of those) and some color wash (which apparently washes out in water).  I used some puff paints to outline. I probably should have done some research first, but I was just throwing it together at the last minute and 'playing'.

I think it wound up OK, I wore it today to the game!

I was lucky enough to be the 2nd to receive a mug rug, yay!!

Just look at this gorgeous specimen:

I love all the gorgeous fabrics, so many beauties!  And the main color, purple, is my favorite color.

On the back the fabric has what almost looks to me like the Death Star (swoon!  since I'm a Star Wars geek).

Love the perfect work, it is so gorgeous.

I also really liked the little card she sent along with it (are they family? So sweet)

Erm...  There was also a lovely snack of Reese's white chocolate pumpkins... where could those have gone....  Grin

Thank you, Linda!

Gah.  I need an intervention.  I washed it and it took away most of my crazy.... and then I added it back again.

It's a shirt I'm trying to finish so I can wear it tomorrow to protest them inducting Michael Vick (convicted dog fighting asshat) to the Virginia Tech Hall of Fame (I'll be at the game where they are doing that).

Thank you so much for posting, Ludi.  I've had a lot of stuff going crazy right now and pics completely slipped my mind.  I love my little gorgeous branch!  No wonder it was so hard, you used such fine thread!  I did several versions with yarn and they took hours and hours each, I can't imagine how long yours must have taken.  I like the delicate weaving patterns you did with the green & white thread, and also with the purples. 

I love the ombre effect of the greens.  <3

I tried to capture a super close up to show the intricate patterns

Thank you so much.  Sorry it took me so long to finally get pics up!!  Embarrassed

I received my last flag (yay!) - a lovely "LOVE" flag from holistic knitter across the pond!

The stitching is really lovely:

Thank you so much, holistic knitter!

And, so many thanks to our lovely hostess, stellato_escuro - I know this was a lot to keep up with !  Smiley

More beauties to share!  I received from our lovely hostess stellato_escuro and also from chameleonhound.

Both have gorgeous hand painting on them, and both on BATIKs!!!  All my partners hit their batik stashes for me.   Grin Grin Grin

First up, "Grounded" from stellato_escuro.  I love the glittery dots and the mandala-like pattern you did on it.  Gorgeous. The colors on this are really vibrant, my phone seems to have washed them out  Huh  stellato_escuro, if you have better pics, please share them!

And, Peace / Serenity from ChameleonHound.  There is a super detailed hand painted flower (lotus, maybe?) on this one.  Beautiful!

Thank you so much; I love them!!

I received an amazing prayer flag from Laurel / rscowtown today.  I just love this flag so much!

Lotus flower carefully done in many different thread colors... swoon!

Petite beading all along the edge... such a nice added touch.

And, of course... batiks, my favorite... What can I say?  Love.

I got notice from Pioneer9 that she received her flag today, with a request to post pics since she does not have a camera.  Here is the flag I made for her word, "Wonder".

I'd commented on the thread about how to make gold shantung silk fabric... Here it is, as the sun!   Grin

Also... GAH to that stupid white thread hanging on to the text.  It bothers me every time I look at these pics!  But I don't have any other pics, so these will have to do.
