Dreamcatcher
I have been wanting to make a dreamcatcher for quite some time now, and after a really long pause here on DA (real life catching up with me), I finally got around to try it.
Since I'm learning, I took the basic design from a pattern book, but modified colours and materials a bit.
It's made using leather strips, wooden and ceramic beads, hand-made beads from polymer clay, cock, pheasant and guineafowl feathers, cowrie shells and freshwater snail shells as well as rabbit fur tufts.

Shirt Mandarin Duck
Here's again one of my painted shirts. This time just some bulrush decoration for the front to go with the buttons, and a quite conspicuous Mandarin duck on the back.

Variations on a Theme: Assorted Dog Designs
One thing leads to another. This is about the question of how one can identify dogs among the various zoomorphic patterns, since there's quite a variety and they're not very lifelike...
So here's a little collection of designs I found.
Unfortunately, in my opinion the result is not very conclusive; though all dogs, I wouldn't bet anything to not confuse them with wolves, or any other quadruped, for that matter, since some of them rather look like a doe, or even a capricorn. Not to complicate things any further, they're all insular style, otherwise there would be an even broader range of forms.

The sources of the designs, starting at the top middle ("noon"), going clockwise:
1. The Strokestown Crannog, Co. Roscommon, Ireland
2. Christ Church Place, Dublin, Ireland
3. A slate from Dungarvan, Co. Waterford, Ireland
4. Lindisfarne Gospel, British Library, London
5. A Stone Cross, Dysert O'Dea, Co. Clare, Ireland
6. Lindisfarne Gospel, British Library, London
7. The North Cross, St Mary's Abbey churchyard, Duleek, Co. Meath, Ireland
8. Lindisfarne Gospel, British Library, London
9. Dungarvan, Co. Waterford, Ireland
10. Durham Cassiodurus ("Expositio psalmorum"), Durham Cathedral, Northumbria, England
11. In the centre: The Book of Mulling, Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland

All, again, found with the help of the books of Aidan Meehan.

Another Stoat with Kilt and Bagpipes
:iconj-le7: held a raffle a couple of weeks ago, challenging people to draw a stoat wearing a kilt and playing the bagpipes. It was a lot of fun and drew some really cool entries.
I didn't feel capable of participating just then, but the idea somehow stuck with me, and in the meantime I came across another way of doing it, not strictly by the rules, but the raffle is over anyway!

So please say hello to Gregor. He is obviously not by me, but a plush toy by Steiff, and he has been sitting on a shelf in my room for many many years now. So now he is proudly dressing up with his all new hand-made kilt, and Glengarry cap, and bagpipes!
He still needs a lot of practice playing them, I'm afraid, but he's getting better all the time.

Original idea by J-LE7 :iconj-le7:
(c) Steiff for the plush stoat
Dress items by me:
Kilt made from tartan fabric from a lady's kilted skirt
Glengarry made from black wool fabric, black satin and red wool
Bagpipes made from suede, hazel sticks and woollen string
