1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Baby Bibs on: May 15, 2008 02:24:30 PM
I did these bibs for my boyfriend's nephew.  They're from a kit I picked up and were my way of getting myself back into stitching since I put down my needles when I moved into my house last fall.



2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / realizing the absurd on: November 25, 2007 12:05:02 PM
hopefully that topic title was enticing, lol.  i thought this might be a fun topic considering the realization i came to this weekend about my supply of embroidery floss.

a little back story - i decided, upon being told i needed to go on a two week business trip, that i would finally take all my floss and put them on neat little bobbins so i could more easily look through them.  so, off i go to Michael's to buy some bobbins.  i stare at them in the isle and think "hm, 4 packs of 28 should be more than enough" and off i go.  two days later i run out of bobbins and realize i have a TON more to go (and this is.

so, since i know there are tons of busy crafters around here i started wondering just how many of you have gone to organize your craft supplies only to realize "oh my goodness, i have an absurd amount of (insert supply item here)".

i hereby declare this topic the "omg i have too much of" or the "omg i have more of this than i thought" thread.  feel free to share any amusing moments of relization.   Grin

Hi everyone,
A while back I read that post about needles tarnishing over time, but I haven't seen anyone post anything (could have been a very old post that i didn't find) about needles bending.  Has anyone ever had a problem with their needles bending over time?  Or, is that just a sign of a really cheapo needle?  The needle I'm currently working with has started to bend at the eye.

Hi everyone!

I'm new to the site as of this weekend and just getting back into cross stitch after not doing any for quite a long time.  about a week ago i finished my first project and my first counted cross stitch ever (the last one i attempted and wound up messing up completely was a stamped project).  i'm going to try my hand at creating a pattern for some old school video game stuff, but that'll probably take me a while since i've already jumped into another and MUCH larger project (a wizard battling a dragon that i also purchased a kit for at the same craft store mentioned below)

i purchased the kit for this at a Michael's Arts & Crafts.  I forgot to take a digital photo of this at home, so I quick scanned it in at work.  problem is that the scanner i have here only seems to like black and white. i uploaded to my livejournal and it should be set to public access, so feel free to let me know if anyone has trouble seeing it.  my journal itself is friends-only so hopefully there aren't any conflicts.  Enjoy!

the real colors on this are:
background fabric - beige
middle block - shades of red with black for the character
small characters in background - beige with brown border
the straight lines are a variety of gold, red and black thread.

Edit: I stopped being lazy and took a digital photo of the project.  Here it is in color!
