I'll have to photograph the scorpion! Saw it there, but it didn't get in the pics. I keep finding new little details. So cool. And the questions were the best, so silly, so informative and just a bit scary!

I am taking a Coursera MOOC* class on Creativity and it's fun to play and learn about something we do here so completely.

One assignment was a "Mini-masterpiece". Take an ordinary object and masterpiece it. I started with a stick, add some thread, paint, paper beads, folded paper, a bottle cap and the foil off the top of a wine bottle. Oh, don't forget the hand painted flat marble "eye".

And now I have my own magic wand. I've seen the concept on Pinterest and just had to make my own version. If you come and visit, I'll bop you on the head with it. We can always find a use for more creativity.



*MOOC are Massive Open Online Classes and are usually free and/or for credit.

Yeah, yeah....forgot to post in the thread...so here I am. I'll have to step up the awesomeness just a bit. This sounds like a completely wild swap. What fun.

steiconi asked me all kinds of weird and wonderful question which set my mind in a whirl...what could she be dreaming up? I mean "do you have all your own teeth?" Who knows what a craftster needs to create, right? I do have most of my own teeth, biting of more than I can chew does have it's hazards. Anyway.....

I received a battered box in the mail, must have come by mule train, but the insides were perfect. Look at the goodies...

I unwrapped a lovely little raven/crow. She's my totem so she will find a place in my craftroom to watch over me. She will join another quite a bit larger version so I'll have a murder of crows!



Then I unwrapped this lovely little shrine pin. I have a new lambs wool long green coat and this looks perfect on the lapel. She will keep me company and let me dream of times with leaves on the trees. It's been such a long white winter here. Just look at the detail.



And then the shrine, oh the bits and pieces, the wings, the lovely godess, the crow skull and all. I keep finding new things to look at. Thank you, thank you so much.



Even the backs are pretty darned cool.

A typewriter, how cool and so last century! Love it. And Dream and Breathe and all the other mini masterpieces. I love the multiple partners as not only do we get lots of flags, but we get to see so many different flags too. Just lovely.

I finished mine. I figured with the mailing time added...I'm right on time! Not counting of course the one I redid in different colors.

My word ended up being Jump since Wulf appropriated the one assigned to me, and am I glad he did, the Expand flag is so beautiful.

Here we go....JUMP
Again a soft pale green tight woven silk back, a bit of lace, a bit of hand dyed fabric, some beads and my favorite variegated quilting thread.

Oh, lovely. I really like the scrappy look and the stitching. And the combination of knowledge and hearts!

The vines are a mix of zig-zagging the various yarns together to form a cord, then hand stitching the main part down and hand stitching the rest. Sort of couching, but more freehand.

And thank you all for all the compliments. It was the last one I did and I struggled a bit with the concept. But I really liked how it came out.
