There's this artist I follow on Flickr, and she does rust, concrete and other types of unique art. Here is one of my favorites by her:
light bulb - wire and rust on canvas by Sharon Pazner, on Flickr

I've often wondered how it was done, and the fabric type, etc.

Here is the other side of the apron. My husband laughed when he came home and I was wearing it.

Received from my incredible partner, Onyxnox. Smiley She really out did herself.

Here is the whole package:


The magnet says: "Think I am cute when I'm mad? Well, I'm about to become really adorable."  Cheesy

There are two hand towels with cocktail fabric with snaps to hang them from the towel bar.


And here is my apron! Complete with white ric rak!  Grin


Everything is impeccably stitched. The apron fits and I love it has pockets. I am forever looking for somewhere to put my phone when I cook.

Thank you so much Onyxnox. You made this swap so fun Smiley

5  Snarky Honeymooners in Completed Projects by HSG on: September 20, 2014 06:51:04 PM
Was in the Snarky Housewives swap, and made this for Onyxnox.

She and her husband like the Honeymooners, as well as gin and tonic. from there it was just a mtter of coming up with the perfect way to display my idea. Then I found these two tiny canvases (3x3), with easels. The tiny Barbie phones were from Etsy.

6  Harry Potter Silhouettes in Needlework: Completed Projects by HSG on: September 12, 2014 08:48:43 AM
In the IYP pottermouth asked me to swap, exciting! As soon as I agreed I decided not to do anything Potter. I've never read the books or seen the movies, and would not know what was appropriate. Well, that flew out the window. Cheesy

Saw this technique on Pinterest and decided to try it with silhouettes of a picture I found on the interwebzzz.

Here is the resulting hoop:

And a close-up of the stitching:

For the back I tried a new technique from the tutorial here. It did not come out as well as I had hoped. Next time think I will try a different kind of stitch.

There was a learning curve with the technique, but it was fun. Will definitely be using it again.
Thank you all for checking it out. Smiley

7  Piet Mondrian-esk Tardis Mosaic in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by HSG on: September 12, 2014 08:40:22 AM
Made this mosaic for Pottermouth in the IYP swap. She had pinned the image on Pinterest, and with a few adjustments here it is.

My daughter is a huge Dr. Who fan, and almost talked me into giving it to her. But I told her I would make her one of her own. Don't often make duplicates, but for her I will make an exception. Cheesy

Thank you for looking. Smiley

8  Bee Happy Mosaic in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by HSG on: September 12, 2014 08:36:33 AM
For one of my partners in the IYP swap I made this mosaic. Found the frame in a thrift store, and the details caught my eye.
IMG_6816 by HRSG, on Flickr

The details on the bee wings and body were done with my Dremel. The substrate was also painted blues so there would be sky throughout. Then I tinted the grout in blue, too.

Tinted the grout around the flower center to accent the orange.

Thanks for checking it out.  Smiley

Received from pottermouth, and she really out did herself. Was so flattered when she asked me to be her partner. Now I am so nervous for what I am creating for her. She is uber talented.

Little less flattering, little more pictures:
Pansy Stumpwork with Ladybug

The frame could not be more perfect, and the colors are so vibrant.
Honeybear Pincushion

Honeybear tucus!


The tiny bees are so cute, and the honey pot even has some "honey" on top.
Finally, is a squirrel needlebook with pincushion:

And inside:


Thank you pottermouth! Love each thing even more than the other. Smiley

My two partners are incredible! They are talented and creative.  Smiley

Neener neener! I'm first to post in the gallery  Grin

pesky pixie really spoiled me. Each item she created has such skill and care. Love them all!

First is a blanket she made that has fleece on one side, and crochet on the other.


I predict many cool days will be spent using this while crafting.

Here is a detail of the SOD.


The butterflies in the corners are movable.

Next are two hot pads she crocheted.




Amazing right?

Here is a fun bottle cover she crocheted, and it could be a vase, too.


Last, but not least. She made me a green shrug, and it is so luxurious feeling! Cannot wait for winter to wear it. Smiley


Here is a detail of the yarns.


So glad I asked pesky pixie to join the IYP. Not only for the wonderful gifts, but it gave me the chance to get to know her, and create for her, too. Hope she goes on to do many successful swaps here on C-ster. Smiley

Thank you pesky pixie! Kiss
