1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Wonder Woman on: June 27, 2016 03:54:20 PM


I forgot to share this cross stitch Wonder Woman I made for my sister-in-law. I found the pattern in a booklet called DC Super Heroes Cross Stitch from Leisure Arts. It was a fun design but the metallic thread was a little touchy. I'm fairly certain I messed up somewhere around the lasso, but I'm not entirely sure. The metallic was supposed to look like the glow around the Lasso of Truth.
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Found my Stitching bug, Been Busy - (picture heavy) on: June 27, 2016 02:17:18 PM


After collecting a little dusk, I finally stitched this Shakespeare cushion kit by Sheena Rogers. I plan on framing it and hanging it in the classroom. It was a really fun and solid stitched design. The design includes all kinds of neat things related to Shakespeare: Hamlet's skull, Romeo and Juliet, the Globe, Stratford upon Avon, a crown, quilts . . . all kinds of fun things.



I made three Lizzie Kate designs: Live, Laugh, and Laugh, stitched on hand-dyed evenweave. I stitched the yellow for myself and the other two for friends. I like having the same designs in our homes. Lizzie Kate designs are fun, quick, and normally contain meaningful and/or inspirational quotes.





I also finished a couple of Dimensions kits: Dream and The Ugly Duckling. These are my favorites. The child's silhouette makes me think of my own little boys. Looking forward to having them both framed and matted.

Stitched for the Rainbows for Peace and Comfort quilts for Orlando shooting victims

I also finished a free kit from The World of Cross Stitching magazine, adorable bunny card kit; however, since I wanted it for my hoopla wall, I stuck this fluffy bunny in a mini hoop.
3  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Rainbows for Peace and Comfort on: June 27, 2016 01:57:35 PM


I recently finished one square of the quilt and banners which will be created for the Orlando shooting victims organized by Timothy and Kyla's  Rainbows for Peace and Comfort facebook group.

The group will be putting together two quilts made for the community and then smaller items for each individual. 

If you join the group, here are the specific guidelines: https://www.facebook.com/notes/1781475678738526/Quilts%20and%20items%20being%20made/1781830525369708/

Whether you want to make one square or a dozen for the Orlando Shooting victims, please join. There are free designs available to use for the quilt on the groups page or you can purchase the $4 Rainbow Butterfly design from Climbing Goat Designs on Etsy.
4  Category Challenges / Needlework Challenge Entries / Shamrock on: April 08, 2016 09:38:13 AM




Here is the Shamrock I designed and stitched. Originally, I was going to make a hoop but the fabric was so pretty, I didn't want to cut it, so as of right now, it is a little tablecloth which may become a chair or stool cushion later.
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Paladin Dragon on: December 27, 2014 03:11:58 PM
Here is a gift I stitched for a friend of mine for Christmas and as a housewarming gift. The design is called Paladin by Fire Wing Designs. I stitched it on gray/blue metallic silver evenweave.

6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Beaker Cross Stitch on: September 04, 2014 01:01:49 PM


I made this Beaker hoopla for whitterp during our recent Disney Swap.

I based the design off an image I found on google which I imported into PCStitch, added the black cross stitch outline, and blended or simplified the color changes.



Beaker was stitched on a glittery gray evenweave aida, stitched over two squares. I think he's really cute. My son has already made a request for him and I might make one for my nephew.
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Grandma's Rosary on: August 26, 2014 10:38:23 AM


I just finished making my grandma's rosary.



I spelled out all her children's names in the rosary beads which wasn't a small task getting all ten names in the five sections. I put two names in each section of the decades, no spaces. Small hematite balls were placed on each side of the letter and heart cube beads on the headpin. Extra chain was used to separate the five sections.

I know she is just going to love it. I'm happy with how it turned out. My husband said he's jealous and wants one with our kids' names. So do I!
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Glitterblast cameo with a candy sprinkles resin Cabochon on: August 05, 2014 09:01:17 AM


For this challenge, I decided to use up the remaining resin from my EasyCast resin kit. Originally, I was disappointed with resin because my molds did not cure during the fall. I had to throw out my bangle mold but using a little fingernail polish remover, I was able to keep the oval, circular, rectangular, and heart shape molds.

Looking through my findings bins, I found some tarnished bezel I've been holding onto. I strayed a cameo bezel with red spray paint and red glitterblast.



For the cabochon, I used clear resin and candy sprinkles. I poured a small portion of resin into the oval mold, poured sprinkles and added more resin. Fortunately, it cured properly, and I was able to file down any access resin and fit it into the cameo. I used e-6000 glue to attach the cabochon onto the cameo. 

I'm very happy with how it turned out. It is a little unusual for me but I look forward to wearing the chunky piece because you cannot go wrong with sprinkles and glitter.
