Prompt: February - Battle - Squirrels
Team: Knotty by Nature
Project Name: Owl Biscornu
Project Link: Woodland Creature Biscornu
Brief Description: I decided to use this for the battle, and put it under squirrel because I’m not the biggest fan of birds. I love owls, and a few other birds are cool, but I’m allergic to them, and I find most songbirds highly annoying. The little hedgehog on the toadstool may not be a squirrel, but I bet they could be friends.

Feb battle - birds
Team - Bits and Bobs
Project name - Bird brooch
Project link - Here
Brief description:
Yay for no longer lurking!
I went to Whitby Steampunk festival today and one of the stall holders was running mini workshops on using Powertex. I’d never heard of it, but it looked fun and who doesn’t want yet another technique to use?
I made my kids sit on the floor (there wasn’t room for chairs for them, and they had tablets so were happy) while I played.
This is a very bad picture of the result

There is more of this to come - I bought a started pack :smiley:

This chili sounds amazing. I also like beans in my chili… in fact, I never add meat to mine. I want to try this now. I used to be the biggest wimp when it came to spicy foods. Living in Arizona has really upped my heat palate.

I just went down a huge rabbit hole trying to figure out exactly what PowerTex is… heehee!! I hope it’s super fun to play around with!

Also, OMG that chili sounds amazing. I might need to add all the chili paste back in, though. :grimacing:

Ornaments from old holiday cards is a fantastic idea! I might need to try it…

Those zetti ATCs are awesome! I’ve been seeing so many ATCs around lately; I think people are itching to get back into the swaps!!
