There really is a remarkable diversity of hobbies among our group. It's amazing that so many of you are so proficient at ventures other than gardening. Those creative juices are just all waiting to burst forth!

It's also nice for people who want to try their hands at something to see some of your earlier works as well as the more masterly ones. This thread is certainly inspiring Big Grin

Yesterday someone showed me photos of their newborn first grandchild. They had the cutest little hand decorated photo album. A friend had embelleshed it and given it to them as a Grandparent gift. What a cute idea Big Grin

What a great thread! We do have a lot of talented artists & artisans here.

Just as with gardening, I dabble in a lot of different art/craft things, sometimes diving pretty deeply in terms of trying to learn a lot about something... I need to get better at finishing projects!

Holly, your Santa stitchery piece is wonderful... I looked at that plaid fabric, and I think it might be too busy to show off the main figure to best effect.. the colors all work, and the country style of plaid is appropriate, but that little plaid pattern just seems too busy/distracting to me. Try it against a solid red or green from the background, maybe something with a little texture like linen or dyed burlap...?

I had to go back and see Holly's X stitch. Beautiful! I once bought a large seashell pattern too, lots of shells spread out. . But I ended up just doing two individual shells for two small frames for the bathroom.

Hello All!

I just found this cubit via the random button. Seems like a very interesting spot and I recognize a few folks.

I have done lots of crafts over the years. Art was my favorite subject is high school even though you couldn't say I really excelled at it. Nobody enjoyed it more than me. I still have a few sketches I did back then.

I've done all the regular stuff like you guys. Cross stitching on plastic canvas and on gingham material in embroidery hoops. Making wall fans from wallpaper. I sold those. I have a short attention span, like a gnat, so I jumped from one thing to another pretty quickly. Loved those little angels made from coffee filters. Sure wish I could remember exactly how to do that. I'd like to do those again. *Blush* Fabric painting was a fun phase for me. Did lots of shirts. Gonna do those this week with the little girls in my Wednesday night class at church. I've been having to blow the dust off a lot of those old ideas for the kids.

The things that I have never layed aside are gardening, photography and writing. I will do those forever.

Sheryl, your drawing is great! And I'm pretty fond of horses. Rolling on the floor laughing

Thanks for the input Critter. I think that is partly why I haven't finished it. I like the material but it just doesn't seem like quite what I want.

Hi, Cheryl! You know what I loved as a kid? Those giant tissue paper flowers~~I think you folded the colored tisssue back and forth then wrapped a wire or tape to stick it to the stick..
span of a gnat--LOL--can sympathize! By the way, gardening and playing with plants is another hobby that I have never given up--maybe because plants are always around in the yard, but other craft supplies I have put away.

Oh Stormy you just gave me an idea to do with my GDs...I used to love the tissue paper flowers! Now to remember how to do it Hilarious! Time for google search!
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Ronnie, I'm sure you can find the flowers on google, but they're so easy, it'll come back to you...

Stack up a bunch (at least 6, more is better) of sheets of tissue paper (ordinary Kleenix type tissues work, too!). Start along one edge and fold the whole stack like a fan, back and forth with pleats maybe 1/2 inch wide for Kleenix and 1 inch wide for bigger tissue paper. Staple in the center of the fan to secure it, and now it'll look like a big bow-tie. Pull the sheets up and in toward the center (where your staple is), one at a time, first one side and then the other. Ta-dah! There's your flower.

(Did I remember it right? Better get some kleenix and play! LOL)

Thanks for those instructions. I see them in my future!

Sheryl, How are your big boys doing? Get any easier to have the farrier work done?

Thanks Jill, I could remember the pleats but that was all...the girls are going to love them. I think I'll do some with them for mother's day and let them make a bouquet for their mom.

Big boys are doing great with a new barefoot farrier - from KY, actually. He's a character, but he knows his hooves - or at least, their hooves! He has this neat move where he makes them sidestep and grabs their hoof in midair - no questions asked. Nice.

Wrightie mentioned that you had some big life changes - do you still have your crew?

We really had a shakeup last August. Moved the whole farm and it hasn't been easy. Long story. It's getting better but lots of the animals are still in "temp" pens. We still have 9 of the 12 horses. Trying to sell 4 or 5 more but it's hard to move them right now between the weather and what passes for the economy. I trust God will work things out for us all.

Glad to hear the guys are well and the farrier problems have worked out. Are you riding Mac yet?

Time sure passes fast. Can you believe Tug will be 2 in just over 2 months? Ben will be a year old in a few weeks. Where does the time go? How is Stormy?

Too many.... but you know that song. This makes 7.

That's why Stormy is going to reform school, lol - he's the brother and the daddy, both. I'm getting a lot of Tennessee jokes over this one. The problem was my vet didn't mention that they maintain their fertility for a short time after gelding. Grrrrr.... that's also why this was such a huge surprise. Everyone got very fat off of pasture last summer, and my mare is such an easy keeper. I was working them all down a little in the winter and she was the only one who wasn't dropping - until suddenly she dropped about 60lbs, and we named her Echo! Blinking
