The 'POSSE' Adventure ... Lasso you in?

jeannespinesJune 14, 2010

OK, instead of a "POTM," we will try something different...this has all come about from our discussion on the POTM - Pros & Cons Discussion & Example thread.

"POSSE"

(Project of Summer Session Extraordinaire)

susiewantsroses' idea of a "life size horse" by next Mon. (LOL) made me think of the next best thing: Posse! & her & other's ideas about extending the time limits.

Definition of "posse" ... a large group often with a common interest.

So, for a GJ adventure, anyone who would like to try to participate is certainly encouraged to do so & anyone who does not wish to participate will certainly NOT be lynched!

From the discussion thread, it looks like our interests are GLASS (& could tie sewing into it)....so for the POSSE (Project of Summer Session Extraordinaire) adventure, please share any Glass/or sewing creation of GJ on this thread!

Time limit...today thru the end of summer!

As nona said for the POTM in the past, "Someone would always make a suggestion for the month, and others would 'do their thing' with it."

Ok, we've thrown that "lasso" out there now, can we "rein" you in???? LOL! Jeanne S.

While I know this isn't original, today I made a windchime with old silverware, wire, old table lamp parts and glass beads. I think it turned out lovely. I didn't take any pics because the weather was rainy, but I shall & will post ASAP!
Now to set to work on my gazing ball and totems LOL

Jeanne, wonderful idea. Tho the subject "Posse" might have scared folks off, LOL. Hopefully more will read and join in! No one gets arrested here.

I love Susierose's horse idea.! You know how I love horses. She cracked me up with "make a life-sized one by Monday". Oh yeah, in my dreams!
(I do have a Wonder Pony waiting to be turned into a carousel pony tho! I know Frou is working hard on one herself, but I'm busy with my usual procrastinating!)

hugs, Karen

Well, even though my DH made my conservatory last year, I'm just getting it into the garden and planted, so I'm thinking it still qualifies as a POSSE creation.

Dang you folks are so good, you should publish a magazine....we could all contribute ifn' we have something spectacular we created. The carousel horse with a new life is so BEAUTIFUL. The fairy's botanical conservatory is BEAUTIFUL as well. Bravo to you creative artistic ladies.

So let me get this straight your project is a LIFESIZED HORSE? LOL I have in my home/garden idea notebook a pic I found in a magazine of a fairly large rocking horse made from scrap wood. I always wanted to make that. Don't know if I can make it this year.

Here's another POSSE glass project! An old light globe...actually in my brother's bedroom as a child turned into a birdbath.

(Forgive the crookedness...had to get DH to straighten it for me)
