Wonderful Halloween box and the spooky graveyard diorama hidden inside is top notch as well.  I too love the skull in the center of the bow.  This is a Jack Skellington approved Christmas gift for children of all ages.

Are you kidding me?  I open up every present I get, regardless of what the label says.  When has that EVER turned out badly for anyone?

That's one elegant pussycat; well done!  I especially like the ruffled neckline.
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: Halloween My Little Pony Witch Carousel on: Today at 10:42:48 AM
With the original art's emphasis on stars, I'm more convinced than ever that it was inspired by Trixie! Cheesy  YamPuff's other designs are neat too (I like the mummy horse in particular).

If you want to see REALLY creepy MLPs, check out these Kickstarter "Four Horsies of the Apocalypse" figures (not sure if they ever went into production or not):

Are you going to stitch up the bat one too or haven't decided?  While she gave it a unicorn horn, that one was probably inspired by "Flutterbat", when the pegasus character Fluttershy was briefly transformed into a fruit bat in an episode of the MLP cartoon when a magic spell backfired.

Huh, I did not know that you could sew with cork--considering how relatively delicate it is, I wouldn't think that it would hold up to that kind of stress, but I guess whatever the backing is works wonders (maybe they treat the wood with chemicals to make it more pliable/resilient too, I dunno).  I can remember easily scraping/peeling the thin cork off of my parents' plastic coffee cup coasters with my fingernails when I was a kid, so, that's probably why I think of it as so easy to damage.

Lovely choices for the other fabrics too, both the Mirabelle Santoro girls and the surrounding butterflies.  Very attractive and professional looking bag!

Not creepy at all to me, just cute, but I spend too much time talking to plastic horses, so, my opinion is suspect at best.

Can't say for sure, but I would guess that the coloring page you based your project on was inspired by the character Trixie Lulamoon:

I like how the carousel shape also suggests a toadstool.  Overall, I'd say it has a stronger anime feel than MLP, but, it's a cool design regardless.

Beautiful little environment, especially the bookshelves and their contents!

Nice assortment of Halloween ornaments!  The bat and the candy corn are my favorites, but the eye and pumpkin are nice too.  I like the reflected light highlight in the pupil; some red stiches, for veins, would be a fun addition too.

Awesome miniature candy shop!  So . . . much . . . tiny . . . sugar!  Design-wise, I think that the staircase could have been omitted, or, alternatively, placed against a wall, as it obstructs the view of the interior display items too much.

I've seen other Craftster members link to their blogs, for more photos/info, in their posts many times in the past, and the hammer of doom never fell on them, so, I'd say you're fine!
9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: altered Playskool bus for my favorite Tin Tin fan on: September 19, 2018 01:16:59 PM
Nice transformation!  I'm only vaguely familiar with Tin Tin, but I recognize the main characters.

I've had some bad ink running when paint was applied catastrophes over the years too, so, I can sympathize with that!  Sometimes the effect is kind of neat and usable, but typically not.
10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Using mens ties to revamp a 1970s folding suitcase rack on: September 19, 2018 12:46:39 PM
That's a really neat use for old ties that I'd never seen or heard of until now!  The different tie patterns make for pretty braids too.  A dollar a tie is a pretty good thrift store price; I've never looked at the local Goodwill's tie selection (I generally make a beeline for the toys), but the St. Vincent de Paul Society thrift store I frequent most often sells them for that same price.   Do you have a photo of your friend's chair that you hope to pair this with?  And sorry to hear that your joints weren't up to managing your sewing machine; hopefully they'll improve with time.

Sad tie confession #1: I only own clip-on ties.  I watched my sister's friend's husband show a boy how to tie his tie at my sister's wedding last month, so, after that demonstration, I kinda, almost, sort of think I could manage that myself now . . .  Roll Eyes

Sad tie confession #2:  When I was buying my clothes for said wedding, I seriously considered getting a garish Coneheads Beldar tie and wearing that, but, common sense prevailed, and I bought a respectable solid dark brown one instead.  You shouldn't show up at your sister's special day dressed like a clown--even I know that!  Grin
