3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My first crochet project- pink and brown circle blanket- pics inside.. on: September 12, 2008 09:57:33 PM
I learned how to crochet the past 3 + months so I could make my best friend a baby blanket..
It's far from perfect, but she loved it.





I never did get a pic of it opened up, but you can get the general idea.

Thanks for looking. Smiley

4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / tribal flames burp rag.. Not my forte but cute anyway on: August 27, 2008 09:04:05 PM
I'm not your average tribal art lover, but a friend of mine asked me to make her this-so I digitized it. I think it turned out pretty cute.

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Joining Squares? Can you make the space bigger? on: August 25, 2008 08:12:56 PM
I am making my first crocheted anything...a blanket for my best friend. I'm running low on time before the baby shower and just need to join all of the squares together and put on a border...

My question- I would like to make the blanket bigger in between the squares . Can you join them using a stich somehow that would make it bigger than just a whip stitch? Does that make sense? If I can, I would like to connect the blocks using a thicker method rather just a single stitch so it spaces out the blocks a little more and makes it a bit larger.

thanks for the help= I'm so clueless.  Smiley

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Pincushion Shaped Peg Board for my sewing room!!! IMG HEAVY! on: February 17, 2008 01:52:37 AM


Let me first tell you that when I painted my sewing room that lovely shade of Tiffany Blue that I went on and on about needing a peg board to go over my sewing table. It was plain as could be up there, and I needed something resourceful to hang my scissor/rulers etc on. So a few weeks back, I was visiting my sister who was remolding her business and I had a random thought- Why dont I hang that peg board I was thinking aboutWhy dont I make itCRAFTY..Why dont I make it shaped likelike.a spool of threadNO! A PINCUSHION

SoI went to Lowes..got the pegboard. I had my husband draw a tomato on there for me. Let me just say from experience that it is NOT smart to attempt to use a jig saw for the very first time on a perfectly drawn tomato. Im not patient either, let me just throw that out there. So waiting on him to get home from work to be able to start on my tomato pincushion wasnt an option. So.I do what every girl would do. Get a sharpie. Two. Red & Purple. I got the peg board (the end that I hadnt chopped to death) and drew my pincushion shape on thereand againand againand again. Then the jig saw...thats another story. Lets just say that I had to call my Dad for re-reinforcement and with his HUGE help, the tomato was born. He also sanded around the edges to make them smooth. He was a lifesaver!


Surely paint will cover my red and purple sharpie marks, right? Um No.


Several coats of primer later


On with the Red


On with the Green


On with the Outline


A few odds and ends later


Dont forget the vinyl pins! All done.

I am in love with my new crafty pegboard! Its really quite large, and I have tons of space for baskets and whatnot to hang on there, out of my way.I hope you love it too!! Smiley

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Dice bags + tutorial- cause Im a nerd like that... on: January 08, 2008 10:02:26 PM
I am a nerd. Like a BIG nerd.
Just wanted to get that out in the open.  Smiley

A small group of friends and I play Warhammer. I would have never thought it would be something I would get in to, but it is SO much fun.

My best friend  and her hubby called & told me that they had bought some black velvet and wanted to make dice bags for our Warhammer group for Christmas presents. I thought it was a fabulous idea since the dice are a big part of the game. They came over and the husbands found a symbol used in the game and I digitized it. She and I then embroidered the symbol and each persons name on the velvet. I sewed up the bags and she put in the drawstrings. We really loved how they turned out. Here is a few pics and a simple tuturial on how they were made.
