Very nice stitching!

Oh!  This is so clever and so great!  I sure hope you do a series!
3693  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Re: Framed Black Apple on: March 18, 2010 07:49:20 PM
Cute!  Your stitches are so damn neat... as usual.  The presentation is really charming with the various sizes and shapes of the frames, too.

This is great!  It's so personal and engaging (as it isn't immediately obvious what all you're commemorating. Even after reading this I have a hard time thinking "scrapbook" when I see it and rather thing "collage-ish".  I think you've finally put into words my aversion to "scrapbooking" as it seems to be defined these days... where are the scraps?  Not that I don't enjoy seeing other people's creations, because I truly do.  They are expressing their feelings about their lives their way and that's as cool as it gets, but there doesn't often seem like there is room for a moodier aesthetic. 

That said there are flat varnishes out there and you could top coat your acrylic paintings with them to make them matte.  I don't know if they're available at craft or art stores, but they do make and sell them for decorative/faux painters.  Golden Artist Colors has a line for decorative painters called Proceed (rather than Golden) and they have a matting additive, so maybe Golden does, too.

Aw, thanks!  I'd like to make a chariot this year, with the big spindly wheels (+ the 4 standard wheels).  If only I had a band saw.

Awesome!  Did you find it difficult to carve?  I'm involved with an annual Adult Pinewood Derby and it's SOOO fun to do!  We also do dioramas and costumes, plus all kinds of trash talking and mockery, which isn't very Scout-like.  I also don't care much about winning the speed contest, although last year I was second slowest out of 30-ish.  For me it's all about the craftin': Here's my entry for last year: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=315638.0 and I'm thinking of actually doing some carving on mine this year.  Luckily, our weight limit is something like 8 oz.  Smiley

I might be interested in this, too.  I might be able to get the info to the artists who do the Cracked Pots shows (summer and late winter), too.
3698  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Refurbished Family Heirloom for Our Wee Princess on: March 11, 2010 05:52:49 PM
You could plop that princess into any old chair and it would become a thrown, but... that makeover for your heirloom high chair looks good all on it's own.  Once she's ready to use it, photos of her in it will probably be so precious that they break the camera! 
3699  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: I guess you'd have to call it a "Wrist-cornu" pincushion on: March 11, 2010 12:40:34 PM
"Wrist-cornu!"  Ha!  I love the idea of making biscornu into a wrist pin cushion and think there are certain women out there who could pull over wearing that lovely thing as a bracelet.   You've done it again, MrsBowles!

Those are like bowls of cheeriness!  They look machine-sewn, is it so?
