1  Re: Quilt-a-long! in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by avsceriline on: May 02, 2007 07:22:54 PM
Finally got around to taking some pictures...







It's ginormous, so these tiny pieces of it are the best shots I could get for now. There simply isn't anything in my house big enought to put it on! And it's wrinkly, from being folded and put away so many times. Forgive me.

Specs:
113 x 106" (king-ish)
rectangles are 4 x 7"
11 colored rectangles per row, and 9 colored rectangles across

The best part is....that every single rectangle is a different fabric! I got to use a ton of scraps and neat pieces from my stash. Chances are, if you've sent me fabric in a swap, ever, it's in this quilt.

And how many fabrics did I have to buy to achieve this? About six. And that's only cause I wanted to 'masculinize' it a bit. Between me and my mother, we have WELL over 100 different fabrics. Packrats, unite!

So far, I've got three 'columns' quilted. 6 to go...and did I mention I'm doing it by hand? My fingers are all kinds of funky right now.

This is a housewarming present for the future mr. avsceriline, for when we finally get a place together. I know it's not too exciting, as quilts go, but I am looking forward to snuggling under it one day.

Anyway....let me know what you think!

2  Holiday Dress 2006 in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by avsceriline on: February 15, 2007 09:50:15 AM
This is an FO from December that I never got around to posting...I needed a dress for a slightly formal holiday dinner with my boyfriend's family, so I whipped up this little number. And by 'whipped up', I mean 'almost ripped my hair out during completion.' I absolutely love the finished product, though! I just *never* want to do ruching again. The fabric is a gorgeous medium weight satin, graded from navy to silver. I got it on clearance at Joann's for $2.50/yd!




I can't remember the pattern number offhand, but it was a Butterick pattern designed by Maggy London. Here's a picture:


Cheesy Let me know what you think!

At last, the planets have aligned and I can finally post pictures of my *amazing* package from MissMeShell! Apologies in advance to dial up users, I went a little crazy with pics!

Isn't the stocking fabulous? I love all the different fabrics she used. And the shape is so...Seussian! It's funny, we both sent curly-toed elf stockings with pointed cuffs. Smiley I'm going to put it on my office door, to bring some much needed Christmas spirit to my drab workplace.


I absolutely adore this wreath. It's based on one from my wists. All the different trims and buttons lend such a great retro feel. Must find the *perfect* place for this.


This wristlet is the perfect size for a night out: just big enough for keys, wallet, and my new awesome cell phone. Again with the wonderful fabrics...I spy some Denise Schmidt! *drool* Also based on something from my wists. Meshell did such a great job of picking some truly awesome goodies to make!


I've always been a big fan of Meshell's wrapped canvases, so I'm thilled to now be the owner of not one, but *two*! The little owlie is adorable. The larger canvas has a spot of honor in my bedroom.

Yay! Recipies! They all sound delicious, but the anzac biscuits and the quiches have majorly piqued my interest. And what pretty recipe cards!

Ok, now this is the deer that she says she doesn't like. I, however, LOVE it! It is so kitschy I can hardly stand it. It reminds me of some Christmas deer my grandparents used to put up during the holidays.

Some *very* pretty log cabin coasters. I feel like I need to invite people over right now, just so I can entertain and use these little pretties!

When I read the note she included with my package, I was astounded to find that she painted these lovely coasters herself! I just assumed that they were store bought. The patterns are from vintage fabrics. Brown + blue = love. Smiley


At last, a MissMeShell pincusion for my very own!! Love the fabric.

Here are some great ornaments that will be hanging on my tree this year. The blue one matches the deer, and the fabric one matches my stocking! I love the little Santa and candycane.


Hee hee...these patches are too funny! My mom and sister (both knitters) are jealous. Also, some cute stickers and a Santa box.

FABRIC! Oh, goodness, what lovely prints! The silky pink fabric just might become a dress for my Blythe. I'm going to use the cottons as a part of my secret quilt. Shhh...

Here are bits and bobs: some cute covered buttons, and ribbon.

Meshell also sent me an Australian postcard with a nice letter on the back, and two CD's. One is a fantastic Christas CD, and the other is Australian music. What a neat idea!


This 'Queen bitch' book is great! Each of the pages have a different funny saying on them. This one's my favorite! Grin

Some more Aussie souvenirs: a kangaroo, and a pen. The thrifted green yarn is *the* perfect shade of green.

Some Australian coins that I requested. One of their coins has a platypus on it! *dies*


And last but not least....CANDY! Embarassingly enough, about half of this is GONE now that I have taken pictures. YUM!

Grin Grin Grin Thank you so much, Meshell!!  Grin Grin Grin

I got my package from the lovely groschveux yesterday.

She sent me this gorgeous sushi table runner!


Here is an action shot of the lovely matching apron. It has a large quilted pocket on the front, with two compartments.

Groschveux sent me chocolate as well (yay dark chocolate!), and an extremely thoughtful surprise: tags with my etsy store name on them!!! I was so touched!  Cheesy


Thank you so much for the lovely gifts, Marija! And thank you for inviting me!

I've gotten three packages in the past few days! Rock on!!

From reneecarol: wist-y surprises.


She sent me two marble necklaces, one definition and one cherry blossom, as well as three knitting magnets (yay!), and an awesome cuff. And it was all wrapped up in the *gorgeous* vintage(?) scarf that they're pictured on. Sorry for no action shots! My face/body is not cooperating.

From animegirlie: a supply grab bag.


Paper, fabric, yarn, charms (!!), and an ATC template, among many many other crafty things. I've always wanted to make an ATC!

From mlsocci: another wist-y surprise.


A beautiful green glass bead necklace! I'm already planning an outfit for work tomorrow so I can wear this beauty. This picture does it no justice, it's so vibrant in real life.

Thank you all so much, ladies!!  Grin

Another delinquent post: Here is the crafty supply box that I gto from orange_sunset. You would not believe how much awesome stuff was crammed into one flat rate postage box!



A few highlights...zippers, fabric, a bag full of beads, tassels, yarn ends (PERFECT for the scrap shawl I'm working on), and some really cool paper.

Thank you, orange_sunset! Sorry it took me so long to get pics up.

I've been delinquent in posting pictures, and I apologize. THe following is my surprise package from Miss Mermaid Strikes Back:


A fantastic green brocade needle roll. I had to take all my needles back out of it for this picture! It fits a ton of them.


And a marvelous Amish Puzzle Ball! I have been craving one of these since they started popping up all over craftster.


Thank you, Miss Mermaid!

9  Anakin Skywalker "Luke, I *am* your father..." Costume in Halloween Costumes by avsceriline on: October 30, 2006 08:56:54 AM
For this Halloween, my brave boyfriend allowed me to make him a costume, without telling him what it was.

He's a huge Star Wars fan, so I made him an Anakin Skywalker costume, from Episode III. After a month and a half of work, three restarts on the outer tunic, almost every bolt of brown fabric Joann's has, and no opportunity to try it on a real person, I *finally* gave it to him this past weekend. It fit! And even more importantly, he loved it!

With the cape:

Without the cape:

And a close-up.


This is a photo that I worked off of:

I used a pattern for the cloak, tabards, and inner tunic, but made up my own outer tunic and pants patterns. The boots and thin outer belt were purchased, but everything else was made. Oh, and the lightsaber came from his personal collection.  Wink

Let me know what you think!

As a die-hard Star Wars fan, he was absolutely thrilled with it. Let me know what you think!
