Here's my metallic: a copper wire necklace. I started it long time ago (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=115691.msg1105170#msg1105170), but didn't finish it until today. It's very easy and the only thing that kept me from finishing it was the fact that getting the wire out of the plastic cover was time consuming. (It's some wire my father gave me and originally it was really meant for electricity...)

And here's one loooong picture to show you the whole thing:

So here's finally my purple.

Can someone become addicted to headbands? Huh It seems to me I did.
One side is plain purple/violet cotton blend, the other is a lovely silk print. I wish I had more of it (like enough for a summer dress, or at least a blouse), but that's impossible, because as usual with my headbands, it was originally a thrift store necktie. Undecided

This photo is nothing special, but the content is special. Smiley Our Bisha gave birth to three kittens on Friday (on the loft). Today in the morning she decided the best place for them was one of our wardrobes. The old winter clothes on the bottom are OK for that purpose, but we had to move out the ballgowns. Roll Eyes

This is the only green thing I managed to make in March - a skirt for my doll. I wanted to make a matching top, too, but then I started sewing more important things, like a jacket for myself, so this is the only thing I can show you. For the funny top I used remnants of the February red necktie. Wink It actually isn't matching, it's there just so this would be children-friendly... and also because I want you to see what I made with the rest of the fabric. Grin

The skirt itself. It isn't crinkled, but it's extremelly shiny, so all slight folds are seen...

The whole thing was sewn on sewing machine, which is a big success for me - normally I'm afraid of sewing such small things on it!

If you wanted, I have a pattern for it. The doll is German Steffi, but I think it could fit old Barbies as well.

I've realised my character designs are sort of fashion doodles, too, very often... maybe not exactly fashion in the narrowest sense, but clothing designs to fit the characters at any rate.
Some of them are already several years old... and lots of them aren't scanned yet, so you can look forward to seeing more. Grin

This one is special, because I implemented the Craftster "Knit Fast, Die Hard" design into it. Grin

They turned out a bit small (and there's quite a lot of them, so I think it's better.). If you want to see bigger versions, let me know.

Yesterday was a lovely, sunny day... except for about 30 minutes of heavy rain with snow. And after that the streets were full of sunlight again and the sky incredibly blue. The sunlight almost hurt, because the wet streets reflected it.
Taken in Brno, Czech Republic (and in it in Moravia, if you like. Wink)

For a reason I felt an urge to add that thick black frame to it. And somehow I very much like both the colour and b&w version, so here are both of them. As big as possible, I hope you don't mind...

b&w, slightly modified in contrast:

I, too, like the garlic, at first I thought it was some jellyfish! Cheesy

Here's the promised butterfly:

It's resized, but I think you can see its broken wing anyway.

It was taken last summer in Prague Zoo, here are some other photos from that day:

Wilderness. Grin

I love the elegant line of this lemur's tail. I'm quite sure he was moving it at the moment I took the photo - the movement is right there in the pose...

So I finished my red craft yesterday. I haven't made the rainbow yet. Tongue Even though I know very well what to do...

My February craft is a red headband to go with my store-bought "strawberry" sweater. It's not exact colour match, but good enough. Originally a necktie I got for free from a nice lady in my favourite thrift store.

Good point, but I don't think it's true. It's more pointy than those things and it really has thorns, if you look carefully. Moreover, it was in "nature" (a path between fields, some sort of meadow or what), no garden; and I know that place quite well, if there were such flowers with big blossom, I would know. I think it's Dipsacus sativus or something similar to it.

Yeah!  I think you're right!  Of course, if you know the area, you would know if there are gloriosa!  They grow wild here like crazy!  Thanks for the info!

Solved. Grin I found a photo from December 2006 from the same place...

Looks a lot like Dipsacus sativus, doesn't it? From the first (this year's) photo I wasn't sure about it, from that angle the "blossom" looked less tall, but here it's quite obvious.

Strange... when I cropped such an unineteresting old photo this way, it looks quite interesting...

Actually, it isn't boring at all - I mean, in reality it would be an awesome dress! The simple looking ones are usually the best.

Another of mine. This time not just a doodle...
