1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / It's a me! Mario! (pillowcase) on: April 12, 2012 06:29:37 AM
Here is a hand-embroidered Mario and Luigi pillowcase I recently made for a friend. She wanted it for her nephew. I am really proud of it and wanted to share it with all of you. Thankfully, her nephew loved it.







Thanks for looking!
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Beatles "Eleanor Rigby" embroidered project on: June 09, 2011 11:40:51 AM
This is my first time posting a project of mine on the boards other than in the appropriate swap gallery. I am really nervous but here it goes.....

This is an embroidered piece I made for Pixiefirefly for the Beatles Swap. Her favorite song was Eleanor Rigby so I used a portion of the lyrics and settled on an idea of a psychedelic cameo.

This is a pic of after the design was drawn. I used fabric markers to color in the design and then stitched around each color with matching thread.



This next pic is after all the psychedelic design is colored in. I am now ready to start the actual embroidering.



This last pic is after all the stitching is completed. I outlined the silhouette in black but the inside stitches are color coordinated. I hope you like it.

3  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Discussion and Questions / Please Help - New Weaver Question on: August 26, 2008 10:27:41 AM
Hello Everyone. I just received a Kromski Harp 32" rigid heddle loom for my birthday -yes I have the best husband ever Wink -but I have question. I just picked up some cheap yarn to experiment with and to use while I watched the video that teaches you how to use your warp board and actually put your yarn through the heddle slots. So my husband was helping me and when we got to the point of putting the yarn through the heddle holes he was considered that the yarn I was using was too thick and I would damage the heddle (because the yarn was so thick it didn't easily go through the holes) So I was very disappointed. I did all that work for nothing. Now I have no yarn to use and no stores nearby to seek help.

I can't find anything online suggesting exactly what kind of yarn to use for my warp. Let's say I want to make a basic placemat just as a practice project. Does anyone have any ideas for appropriate warp yarn? Maybe a website where I can get it? I don't understand the terminology 8/2 22/2 and all that stuff.

Unfortunately there are no specialty stores where I live with weaving supplies so most of my shopping will be done online. Any help is greatly appreciated.
4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Buying fabric by the bolt on: May 09, 2008 08:28:50 AM
This is my first post here so I hope I am putting it in the correct place. I am considering attempting to sell some of the things I make here locally. I have been thinking about the savings on buying an entire bolt of fabric rather than by the yard. Where I live (a small town in West Virginia) there aren't a lot of places to buy fabric by the yard let alone bolts. So, could anyone give some advice and perhaps links to some good websites where I could find fabric by the bolt. I did a google search and it didn't help much. I either find sites with fabric I am not interested in (like tulle and wedding fabrics) or I find sites that only deal with businesses.

Thanks in advance!   Smiley
