1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Starburst Clock on: February 09, 2009 01:12:27 PM
So I really like these George Nelson clocks

But there is no way that I would pay $300 for a clock, so I decided to make my own version of the Starburst clock. Not exactly like the original, but the best part about mine is that it costs me only about $20 to make and I was able to get all the supplies I needed to make it from my local craft store.

Thanks for looking  Smiley
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Whats old is new on: January 16, 2009 01:49:51 PM
One of the cool things about moving is that you get to find stuff you forgot you had. I came across a box of vintage linens that I have had for about 10 years. I found this in the box with the embroidery transfer already in place. At the time that I bought it I didn't even know how to embroider. So now that I know how, I decided to finish what someone else started about 50 years ago.

The subject matter is pretty ridiculous but cute at the same time.
I am not sure if it is supposed to be towel  or table runner, but I am leaning towards a table runner because the edges have a decorative trim on them. If even one has any insight on that let me know.

3  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Sweet Tooth Cocktail Napkins on: January 16, 2009 01:37:23 PM
This was a quick and easy project. I recently moved, and came across these vintage cocktail napkins in a box of stuff that I had completely forgotten about. I thought that the pastel colors would look good with some sweets stitched on them. All of the patterns are from the Sublime Stitching book.

4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Black Apple Doll on: December 17, 2008 01:21:07 PM
Here is my version of the Black Apple Doll. I embroidered the face because I am not very skilled with paint. I used one of the Black Apple kits to make the doll because I couldn't resist the adorable Harlequin fabric.

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / A Custom Shirt for a Custom Hearse on: December 17, 2008 01:15:28 PM
I made this shirt for my husband to match our 1970 Cadillac Hearse. I chose gray and black to match the interior of the car. The S&S logo was embroidered by hand. This was my first time embroidering on a piece of clothing and there are few things that I would do differently next time. The pattern I used is Kwik Sew 3484.

Here is a pic of the the logo that I used for reference. For those that are interested S&S is the coach maker.

My husband loves the shirt and it was a big hit at the Hearse Club meeting!

Thanks for looking  Smiley

This is the first dress that I ever completed. I made it a while back. It is Butterick P410. It was also my first time ever doing gathering. I think the sleeves just about killed me  Tongue

The love this fabric. It is a reproduction forties print from http://rubyjane.com/

8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Elephant Tea Towels on: May 27, 2008 07:51:09 PM
I made these tea towels for a swap. My partner loves elephants, and wanted some embroidered tea towels so it was the perfect match. The transfers that I used were 1940's reproductions that I purchased on Ebay.

Thanks for looking!

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / SnB Riverside Ca on: February 03, 2008 07:38:27 AM
I am a newbie knitter going on  borderline obsessive knitter  Smiley and am looking to spend some time with some other like minded knitters.

I was wondering is anyone knows of a SnB group in the Inland Empire?
If there is not one that exists I would be interested in starting one.
