Brief Description: For the AT Coins swap I found some silhouettes on line and I cut them to fit the 2.5 inch circle.  The lines to cut them out was so close that the thickness of the blade made a difference.  So I used zircon plated blades and special silhouette paper.  I purchased the silhouette three years ago and this was my first time using it. It is lovely paper but it was easy to nick the black surface.  So I won't be buying any more of the paper.  I will go back to cutting shapes out of parchment paper and then spray painting them the color I want.

Brief Description: This is from a Valentine Heart Swap here on Craftster.  I used french silk ribbon, silk ribbons, and beads.  Lots and lots of beads!  This was one of my easiest projects.  I found the perfect everything to make the heart.  Projects are so much easier when you can make up your mind on supplies!  My partner wanted a heart that hangs so I made a 2.5 inch heart pendant.  I also made a bag for the heart.  I don't use a sewing machine so the bag did take some time.

I received my heart in the mail!  I got a sweet little box decorated with tule and little snowflakes.  The box has a wonderful surface of swirling purples.   The surface is shiny so it was hard to get an image.  Thank you Whatthepuck for the box!  I love boxes and will probably use it to store beads or maybe amethysts.

Project Name: Embroidered Chair
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: This project was made for a local charity event benefitting our library.  The event is called chair-ity and everyone decorates chairs using a book as inspiration and they are raffled off.  I used an embroidery book called "Exploring Elizabethan Embroidery" by Dorothy Clarke as my inspiration.  I used the cover embroidery to decorate the seat cover after striping a $6.00 chair and painting it pink.

Challenge: Ice Mice
SPEW: N/A
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Two Ice Mice
Project Page Link (if available): N/A
Brief Description: Nice Blue Mice

Recently I inherited a magic needle.  They are somewhat rare so I was both excited and wary.  After doing some homework I tried using the needle.  You are supposed to make a stack of fabric and pattern and then lay the needle on top.  Then the needle should make the pattern.  But nothing happened.  After speaking with several experts they said that the needle must have been damaged at some point.  They recommended I purchase a new needle rather then repairing the inherited one.  Sad that it was broken but I kept it as a keepsake of my great grandmother.  Then the other day when cleaning the craftroom  I placed the needle on top of some felt I had been using and suddenly the needle came to life!  The needle turned into scissors and cut the felt.  Then the needle  threaded itself and started sewing like crazy!  When it finished I had two small felt mice!  After that I took the needle to an expert who said that the needle has other abilites but the needle is stuck making felt mice.  Which explains why when ever a gift giving event came up she always gave stuffed felt mice!  We just thought she really liked mice!  So I have decided to keep up the mice giving tradition but will leave instructions for the next owner of the needle.  When the needle finished the mice they ran off and I found them eating bits of felt cupcakes!



The mice are made by hand of felt using buttonhole stitch.  This is the first time I tried using legs that sit.  The first pair of legs didn't work but I kept trying and came up with some nice legs.  They are 3.5 inches standing up and 2.5 inches seated.  I have been making felt mice for almost 3 years now and I still don't know why I keep making them.

Thanks for looking!

Project Name: Ice Mice

Brief Description: Felt mice (they don't fall in any other categories.)  They were made from felt and a pattern I've adapted over the years.  This was the first time I've made them legs and they look pretty good.  The mice are 3.5 inches tall and 2.5 inches seated.  They were all hand sewn using buttonhole stitch.  The eyes are size 5 beads.

After making these mice they escaped and I found them eating some felt cupcakes I made.

I've been enjoying all the projects and hope to comment but I always feel short of words.

The scorpion was for a Halloween basket so something scary was needed compared to the other cute things inside.  I  have lived in the desert and I'm thankful to have never seen one!

Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: Fairies holding hearts.  The fairies are 5 inches long and the doily is 8.5 inches.  They were not difficult to cut and I enjoyed listening to a book at the same time.  There is nothing like crafting to cheer me up!
