1  Upcycled Dragonfly of trash in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by cmarion3 on: June 21, 2018 06:51:20 AM
I don't do much yard decorating. We tend to veggie garden and just getting seeds/plants in, weeded, watered, tended and eaten takes up much free time. But I love eating veggies!

But I changed how the raspberries were trellised this year. They've been dying out from the back to the front for no reason we can discover except the neighbors untrimmed Rose of Sharon and lack of light. This redo left a cross bar right at my head height and when I have a hat on I bash my head on things I can't see. ALL THE TIME!

So I made a little eye-catcher in hopes that my head would stay in better shape.

Bottle caps, wire, printer rollers, beads, small Christmas ornaments, a glass teardop, and other odd items came together in a whimsical flying creature. It may only last a season, but it's fun! And useful.

I am going to try again to post the wonderful patch fatewineroses sent. I love the message, it is absolutely perfect. It's ready to be attached to whatever I'm wearing to the next rally. I love it and love that she followed my request for something small...because I did not honor that request in reverse. LOL. And the chocolate is long gone. Thank you fatewineroses

3  Starry, Starry Night Spirit Doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by cmarion3 on: May 18, 2018 08:32:03 AM
Meet Night. She's a Van Gogh inspired art doll. Our church and the local art association is having a joint show/sale. We are also having our annual plant sale and tag sale at the same time. All are fundraisers.

The theme for the art show/sale was Vincent van Gogh's "Starry, Starry Night" and most artists did their own interpretation of the painting or other van Gogh paintings. There are also quilled, soda straw, and other interesting ones. Some did their own paintings in the style. My contribution is a spirit doll.

She's composed of cherry bush sticks (from a damaged bush), fabric, yarn, beads, charms, bits of jewelry, and a polymer clay face. I finish the face with clear shoe polish and eye shadow...kinda weird, but I love the soft iridescent look.

4  Winter to Summer Shirt Transformation in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by cmarion3 on: May 15, 2018 05:30:31 AM
I like sleeveless shirts in the summertime. They are not easy to find in my size and price range. And I wear them for camping, working in the garden and hate to start with something new that I'll wreck in no time. So time to reconstruct some shirts.

The red one had sleeves that were just a bit to tight and so I had hardly worn it. I may still remove the collar, but for now, this is for more civilized pursuits than gardening. The plaid ones were worn to softness and hadn't been worn much in the last couple of years.

I removed the sleeves and made binding out of one of them. The side seam was taken up and the armhole trimmed and reshaped a bit. I hate having to take the shirt on and off repeatedly to get things right, but it's worth it. Then I used the binding to finish the armhole. I love these shirts now.

I am digging through my closet for more!

I ordered this pattern, Butterick 6024 ZZ (Lg, xL, xxL). I did view D (the one you used TheMistressT) with the drop hem from A. I used the XL because I wasn't sure how it was going to fit and ended up cutting it down to the Lg size, adding an extra tuck on each side of the front to narrow the neckline and taking up the back seam by 2 inches as well. I think I also narrowed the flair of the sides as well. Then I cut off the drop hem and did a straight hem in back. It's hardly the same pattern now. But I like it. I used a poly/cotton curtain panel someone had given me for the test run and it turned out so well, I'm looking for more cool curtains.  Grin I've used curtain panels before for costumes and such. It's inexpensive and you can sometimes find colors and fabrics not available in the store.

Thank you TheMistressT for the pattern find. It was easy and quick.

7  Re: Monthly Dotee Swap - March 2018 - Muses Gallery in The Swap Gallery by cmarion3 on: April 30, 2018 12:55:04 PM
I received from Smmarrt the sweetest dotee ever! She is a spirit dotee with fabric representing the earth on the front, fire on the back, and a raven, my spirit animal. Hidden inside her are a ticket for safe travels, a penny for good fortune, a feather for lofty thoughts, a flower for a sweet life, and a heart for family and friends. She's lovely. Thank you.

craftylittlemonkey sent this awesome wash day card. I can just see washing my delicates in this little machine. The door ring is 3D and the little clothes inside are so fun. There's even bubble paper behind the clothes. Love it!

9  Re: Prayer Flag twinkle - Round 8 GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by cmarion3 on: April 18, 2018 12:58:48 PM
I finally processed my window o' flags. I make prayer flags, I swap prayer flags, and I do workshops to make prayer flags.  Cheesy I love 'em! It's a bit dark, but you get the idea.

10  Colorful Curiosity in CHALLENGE 123 ENTRIES by cmarion3 on: April 06, 2018 10:28:33 AM
In the recent prayer flag swap, we were asked to make flags for ourselves. I often make extras when I'm swapping, good for last minute gifts, donations to craft fairs, etc.

I chose curiosity. We need curiosity, interest in new things, the need to know, to know how. So take a look. It's approx. 8" x 5".
