1   Esm in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Nodsu on: January 30, 2018 03:00:38 PM

Wanted to make something fun  and colorful ... so little Esm was born. Lots of contrasting messy-looking stitches, silk and cashmere scraps, beads and ink, makes for a

Omgosh - all these adorable ornaments and goodies! We took time to scroll through each post and pic and collectively ooh'ed and aahh'ed at every pic! So much young talent!
My munchkins got their packages (we waited for both to arrive for the grand reveal) -
My older got an amazing package from Tampestrymlp's daughter - she was thrilled with the painted wooden box with friendship sign, adorable axolotl card, a magnet, beautiful necklace and friendship bracelet - what a lovely loot that was!

And my little one scored awesome HP itmes, from Patty-o-furniture's daughter -  butterbeer cap pins, a chocolate frog, tape flower pen and  glitter tape for fellow tape lover and a super fun unicorn ornament, cause she's obsessed with rainbiw barfing unicorns Cheesy - love the sense of humor in the letter too!

Please, tell your girls how happy my kiddos are with their packages and thanks for all the fun! Smiley

Somehow I've missed 7 pages of gallery here! Eep!
Will have to sit down and scroll hrough the goodies, when I'm done with errands.

But I received from my partners yesterday!
Thank you so much for the fun surprises! My girls were so excited and can't wait to hang them up tomorrow, when we'll go and get a tree.
From ant Bee they got these awesome knitted hats (according to their theme) and owl molds and stickers and I got my very own tiny Mrs. Weasley's sweater! I love it! Thank you so much for these amazing goodies - they will be part of our tree from now on!

And from my partner Wavelight I received a beautiful golden Harry ornament and an adorable wreath with cute charms - plus so many little gift tags, that we'll put to good use!
Thank you for the fun surprises!

4  Felted portrait. in Felting: Completed Projects by Nodsu on: December 04, 2017 05:54:54 PM
It was an honor to make this memorial portrait for someone special. Even if dressing pets up isn't always a nice thing to do, an occasional accessory does highlight special moments at times. And this neckruff makes him a star!

I love felting pictures - one of the techniques I hope to invest more time into, in the future.
I hope she likes it!

6  Halloween badges ... fashionably late in Needlework: Completed Projects by Nodsu on: November 15, 2017 06:06:29 PM

... cause I love all things Vintage Halloween-  it's the perfect touch of creepy with lots of cute. And I really enjoyed freehand embroidering these guys.
I also made a felt-embroidery combo tarantula -
... and then there was a bumblebee-

 Grin Roll Eyes lots of embroidery-felty craft spam ... felting and then stitching over it just feels so fun. (Yeah, one can tell I live far from family and don't have friends  Grin Cry )

7  Daiso yarn sucks. in Crochet: Completed Projects by Nodsu on: November 15, 2017 05:46:02 PM
... has anyone noticed that?
I bought 2 balls of plush chunky yarn to make a llama hat for my niece - and while the hat turned out fine, it never tried after washing. I dried it for 2 hrs 100% heat in dryer and 2 nights airing on a soda bottle ... and it finally sort of dried- but smelled like mold. Wth. Never buying that yarn andbthe hat ended up in garbage  Undecided

- so, I run over to Joann's, bought all new everything and made a new hat - will not make the mistake of washing tho, just in case Grin

Hat #2

And hat #garbage:

... so, while I love Daiso and love their wool yarn, I won't be buying their chuncky polyester nonsense no more!

8  Some dogs just have so much character! in Felting: Completed Projects by Nodsu on: November 15, 2017 05:33:43 PM
Someone will be getting a portrait of their dogs - long-necked little petite  lady and a long-tongued potato ... and a Colorado sunset and flowe crowns thrown in for a good measure  Grin - I really had a bit too much fun with these.
(Needle felted, 10" hoop)

I hope the giftee will love this Cheesy

9  Doggie portraits- mixed media in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Nodsu on: November 07, 2017 02:39:26 PM
Along with the felted sculpture, we offered little portraits as prizes for people who donated for the shelter after hurricane.
I love doodling, so it was a great excuse to get my watercolors and pencils out

Love the tiny 4" x 6" size of the paper - perfect little postcards  Grin

10  Darling little Dixie in Felting: Completed Projects by Nodsu on: November 07, 2017 09:23:46 AM
Finished little Dixie yesterday - a darling little RainbowBridge doggie, that was custom made for her mommy.
It all started with Hurricane Harvey-  my IG friend asked me if I'd want to help her with setting up a fundraiser and I offered to make a sculpture and drawings for prizes. We raised $500 for a senior dog shelter and the winner of the fundraiser gifted her prize to her friend, who had just lost her lil girl - love how much caring for pets and people were involved in this collective effort  <3
I was originally going to add this to the last craftster challenge about doing good, but we were a bit behind with drawing winners. So, here she is - a teensy felted Dixie girl Smiley
