Mountains and Clouds- That tarot card set is just gorgeous! I love seeing different variations of tarot card decks. All of the dresses for your Blythes and BJDs are just adorable. I don't have a good idea of how big those dolls are, but can you sew those clothes on a machine? And, that mohair wig is awesome! What did you use as the wig base? And great job on the eye repaint (and winning the battle on removing the old set)- the detail on the irises is amazing! Your pottery is just gorgeous! I love that bright blue glaze, and the little covered pot. The drippy porcelain cups are my favorites, however. And, how difficult is it to throw a plate? How do you keep the size consistent? And, I never heard of Soldate clay before. Where does it come from? And, since my sister is a potter, I know that getting a red glaze to stay red can be tricky, so I am impressed by that deep color. I really, really like your ATC set! I love the technique (I'll have to look up Jennifer Hines), and I really like how you used the colors in each one. And, congratulations on crafting ALL THE THINGS!

Calabaza- I've never heard of Korean sweet potatoes, so how do they taste compared to the "regular" sweet potatoes? We're getting a big Asian market here soon (about 5 minutes away), and now I'm wondering if they'll carry produce! Great job on the pajama shorts and capris! In the summer, I don't like to wear pajama shorts, so I always wear lightweight pj pants. I don't know why it never occurred to me to make capris! And, frozen whipped cream sounds delicious! I've had to give up ice cream, but I'm wondering if a smidgen of frozen whipped cream would be a good substitute? Might have to try it soon! I love all of your dresses (especially the galaxy one)! I used to love wearing dresses (so comfy) often, but stopped. Now that I've learned about slip shorts, I might have to make a few dresses for myself Smiley  I really like your hat, and the flower print lining is such a nice touch! It looks great on you, too! And, my stomach is growling after seeing your garlic zucchini noodles (I have yet to try veggie noodles, but I think I will soon!), and zucchini bread. And, I think you've convinced me to have a burger for dinner tonight! I just started using pattern weights but I've been using random objects, so I think I need to make an actual set for myself (and a set for my mom for Christmas). Thanks for the tutorial link! And, I'm jealous that you have a custom fit dress form! I've wanted to make one for ages, but wanted to wait until I wouldn't need quite as much material to customize mine Grin Congratulations on crafting ALL THE THINGS!

greybird- What a clever idea to use a TM patch to make a pouch! I love making the patches for swaps, but wanted to try some more "true to style" patches, only I didn't know what I wanted to make with them. I think I'll be using your idea! And, I love, love your map journals! I love anything map-related, and I love journals, so it really is double the love! I'd love to know more about how you made them. And, your ATC collection is great! I especially love the cherries and the tomte cards. I love the shading and the "light shine" on the cherries card! I also really like the mosaic flower. And, the detail on the pocket watch {*sniff!*} is amazing! What a good idea to make a "cheat sheet" of techniques for your water soluble crayons! That will come in handy when you're planning your artwork! Also, I love that pumpkin ATC! Just the right amount of creepy Smiley I really like your mail art envelopes. I've always wanted to try making them, but didn't want to overdo it. Your design is just the right amount, so it's given me inspiration! And, what sweet items to put in the Operation Christmas boxes. I like the earth tones on the bracelets, and the simple pendants are perfect!

So happy that they arrived as quickly as they did! And, I'm thrilled that you like them!

Wow! That God's eye patch is amazballs! However did you do it craftADDchick?

I'll take a close up pic so you can see how the stitches are. It's ingenious, very cleverly made.

A picture will probably be better, but I'll try to explain...

I couldn't send real sticks since I live in a quarantine zone (Asian Longhorned Beetle), so I can't send any wood out of the area. And, for some reason, I didn't think of popsicle sticks Smiley

First, I made some "sticks"out of fabric wrapped fun foam. I stitched the first stick down (except for the very ends), the I placed the other stick on top and stitched it in place on top of the first one. I only stitched it down where the 2 sticks overlapped.

To do the wrapping, I did a combo of actual wrapping (on the top stick), and fake wrapping (on the bottom stick). For the fake wrapping, I poked the needle down through the patch on one side of the stick, then came back on the other side of the stick- so I basically wrapped it through the patch!

It took me a while to figure out how to do that...

But, once I got going, it was very soothing to stitch!

I'm so glad they arrived so quickly, and that you liked them! I was unsure about them both, because the techniques were a bit different for me. And, kudos to you for using the proper spelling of the volcano Smiley  I was originally going to do a fire fountain from Kilauea, but then I saw a photo of Eyjafjallajkull and it just called to me!

I'm all about internet copy/paste! No way could I have spelled that on my own!

I can't spell it, but after watching a video about Iceland's volcanoes several times in class, I can pronounce it pretty well!

Selfishly, I love you went out of your comfort zone, because I was on the receiving end of it. There's always so many more techiques to try and learn.

Smiley

And, every time this swap happens, I pick up a new technique I want to try eventually!

Congratulations, Nerds! I love how so many of the Featured Projects come from our Nerdy ranks Smiley

And, I'm planning to make some pouches for bunny1kenobi, and I picked up zippers from Joann Fabrics the other day. I was a bit surprised to see that their zippers (at least the style I was getting) were all the same price. So, a 7" zipper is the same price as a 22" zipper. I was able to use coupons on them all, so the overall cost wasn't bad, but it didn't seem fair to pay the same price for a smaller zipper. Today, I stopped at the $2.99 fabric store and their zippers (which I never realized they had), are priced according to length. So, I know where I'm shopping for zippers from now on!

Tomorrow night, I am looking forward to whipping up a few pouches! And, my goal is to get them mailed out on Saturday!

Acadian Driftwood- Wow! After checking out your posts, I am now hungry! Your strawberry jam and cranrazz preserves look delicious, and I know all too well the frustration of having to cook a jam for much longer than the recipe says. But, usually, the result is worth it! That sherbet sounds really tasty (pretty too!), and somehow I never thought about making sherbet on my own. Now, popsicles I've maade, but that combination sounds heavenly! Thanks for sharing how you made them. And, garlic scape butter is such a great idea! I got some in a CSA last year, and I never thought to make butter with them. I'll bet it freezes well! I love how pretty your windowbox looks, and you've inspired me to start planning my own for next spring (including figuring out how to protect them from the roof runoff!). And, I'm curious about the juggling balls- how did you make them? Are they paper mache? And, great idea to polish and repair your shoes. I have an old pair of Doc Martens that could use some love, so I might have to tackle that project soon. Your handkerchiefs came out so pretty! I've never tried flower pounding before! How does the color hold up after washing? Your mixed berry cobbler is right up my alley, and with homemade whipped cream? Heaven! And, salads are something I should eat more of (and I don't have that particular book by Molly Katzen, but I love her others so I may have to invest in a copy), so along with your pretty looking pickled cukes, you're making me want to eat more veggies! I love all of your dotees, especially the blue-footed booby. And, making things from items that might otherwise get thrown out is so much fun to do, so I love your park bracelet and Christmas card ornaments. And, the fabrics that you used to make your zipper pouches for bunny1kenobi are fantastic. I love the zipper colors you used with them, too! That corn relish not only looks tasty, it's so photogenic Smiley And those lemon slice earrings are supe cute. Your dog drawing is very well done- I'm impressed by your drawing skills! And, every time I scrolled past your bee shrine, I had to go back and look at it. It is just so pretty! And, congratulations on crafting ALL THE THINGS!

bunny1kenobi- I really love your steampunk jewelry sets! You use just the right combination of items (a skill I lack), and I'd happily wear any one of them! Your beaded cowl and your infinity scarf look super snuggly. I'm still learning the basics of knitting, so I can't tell for sure, but are they knit tubes that you joined? Your Music of the Night ATC is fabulous- I love the image. And, your little camper card is just adorable (and makes me want a camper even more!). Your Happy House plaque came out great, and is so true! What a perfect gift for a newly married couple. Your necklace collection is spectacular. I really like the oval ring technique that you used on the tribal one. And, I love the pendant and the beaded "chain" on the butterfly one. That modern vintage one is gorgeous- again, just the right amount of stuff, and I love the little key. And, I am seriously jealous of whoever (whomever?) received the scarab necklace. Seriously! I really like the layout of your beachy card, and love how the silhouettes play against the sand and sea. And, congratulations on crafting ALL THE THINGS!

Hey, just wanted to check in! I am making for fatewineroses in the merit badge swap, too, so I'm planning on shipping together!

All is going well! Happy stitching!

Excellent! I'm sure she'll appreciate it Smiley
