I received from Blu as well. Lovely little sea fairy house. Look at the paper, the details, and I love the little sea horse riding fairy. Very sweet and fun! Thank you.

22  Look at this find. Now to talk my DW out of it! in What the heck can I do with THIS? by cmarion3 on: August 17, 2017 03:54:04 PM
Our good friend has ended up in assisted living and we are clearing out her house. She wants everyone to take something to remember her by. We don't need furniture or knick knacks, but her husband was an engineer and my wife is a wood worker. So we took her beloved husbands work box. She's delighted. It is beautiful, full of old precise tools and well used. I'm sure we will find a use for it, but right now we are just admiring the amazing workmanship of it all. Everything still fits and opens and works well.

Pottermouth sent Tilly, she's "rambunctious, perpetually happy, and like s to dig in the dirt". She's been causing all kinds of trouble since she likes to hang out in my office. I'm sending her out to weed the garden, which seems to make her even happier!

Here she is in my office....

She came all wrapped up....

And even brought her own buttons to play with....

Thank you, I love her and she's such a help in the garden...but she does get dirt everywhere!

A lovely, amazing, artful card from mandykaye for Artsy-Fartsy, a "Flamenco Dancer". She is beautiful and stylish and I can just see her dance!

Awe. Awesome. Cards.

I love the black and white ones and that kitty is just perfect.

Here's another perfect card from gozer. She capture my theme of summer awesomeness beautifully. Here's "Summer Day Dream". The feet in cool, clear, water, is lovely. If it wasn't raining and 57 degrees right now...that's where my feet would be.

26  Resistance TM Patches in Needlework: Completed Projects by cmarion3 on: July 17, 2017 08:02:50 AM
I had never made TM patches before, but in the recent Feminism & Diversity Swap (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452710.0) they were just necessary!

Here they are. They are a mix of embroidery, scrappy machine applique/reverse applique, and stamped fabric. A few beads, a button or two, a paper letter B. And here they are.

I received a fun card from curiousfae, on my theme, wise sayings. Watercolor and ink. Beautiful colors and excellent lettering.

She said her dad used to say this all the time. I love it! For those of you who always have way more intentions than deeds, this saying can be annoying...it annoyed a friend of mine that has a tendency to have big plans and little action.  Cheesy She always enthusiastic about projects though!

28  There is NO Planet B mini quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by cmarion3 on: July 14, 2017 09:24:41 AM
I had fun with this quilt. It is my first made from scratch paper piecing pattern. That's what happens when you have a concept and the world of quilting does not have what you want. I fell in love with paper piecing this year and though I've only make 2 other projects, I am a whiz at Illustrator. So I dove in. I did find one spherical quilt and I riffed off of that.

It's harder than it looks. LOL we all have found that one out. The pattern itself was a bit of a challenge, but the assembly order was even more challenging, add to the fact that I forgot to reverse the pattern pieces so I had to improvise. I flipped the top to bottom, and recolored the earth pieces to match my vision. After that it was a paper piecing breeze...well there were snags, but all in all it came out. I've since revised the pattern to fix those issues. PM me if you want it, but keep in mind....it's not been tested well.

The words were printed on printable fabric, sewn to the quilt with the NO and B added after. I just stitched around the edges, trimmed closely and roughed up the cut edge to give a scrappy look. Embroidery or standard applique would work well too.

It's 24" x 18" final size. Hmmm, I obviously shrunk the quote. I'll have to go back and re measure and adjust the pattern. I like the smaller quote.

BigBangMomma sent me a wonderful package. Gave me a boost just when I needed some strength and courage.

First is a lovely, wood burned and painted frame with a perfect quote. YEAH!

Then a little wood burned banner. I do love to resist and I do love woodburning. It's hanging on my oh-so-60's stair railing.

But wait, there's more. A lovely nature, camping, love, soccer, outdoors prayer flag. Look at those fabrics.

And.....two woodburned pins for my protest apron. It's a black apron with hand painted fabric signs, easy to carry (I just wear it), easy to customize.

I'm feelin' it right now! Thank you so much.

30  Scrappy prayer flags in Completed Projects by cmarion3 on: June 19, 2017 06:55:19 AM
I love prayer flags. Thoughts and prayers to let loose in the world. So I join every flag swap I can, give workshops on creating flags, and make them randomly for myself.

The first one was on the theme of "Go Within" and vintage. I wanted to use old linens and such. There is old lace, hand tatted bits, an old button and yarn. It was fun trying to get it all to swirl around properly. I used a water soluble backing, then stitched the whole thing to a silk flag. My trusty sewing machine did the stitching on the bit of ribbon.

"Wander" was the next theme and I started with 1/2 a blue doily, more lace, a crocheted sample, and more lace. The base was an old sun browned curtain that was so fragile that I kept tearing holes in it. But it made it onto the silk backing. The wander yarn bit was composed of several decorative yarns, zig zagged into a string: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=438001.0.

The last flag was for me, one of the requirements of this swap, and I chose "Breeze". I needed some air and light in my life right now. The flag itself is an old linen tea towel, the other half of the blue doily, a lacy doily, and hand tatted breezy air! I've had that large button for a while. I sewed it on and had the three flags laid out on my ironing board. The next morning that large button was in two pieces. Weird, I have to get some gremlin repellent! It glued together just fine and is hanging in my collection in the window.
