I'm terrible at getting progress shots, but I must say that everyone's projects are looking fantastic!  I've finished my wizard and posted it here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=405756.0

He's magic you know.

And onto the next project!!!!  Cheesy
12  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / It took magic to finish this one. on: March 17, 2012 10:32:37 PM
Hello crafty folks, been a long while but I've finished my big stitching project that I started ages ago.  Okay 2 years ago.  This was a kit that I picked up and have been working on it off and on over that time.  The last time I posted there was very little done and really it just looked like a big fuchsia blob.  Blob no more, I present my finished wizard... riding a... moon... wait how can even a wizard ride a moon in the vacuum of space?  With an owl no less?  Magic!  He must be in a magic bubble.... a huge magic bubble large enough to encircle himself, his strangely hedwiggish looking owl companion and his own sparkly self.  This guy must be gigantic to be cruising around on the moon... in space.  Anyhoo..

It was a pretty fun project, I got to use some new techniques that I'd not tried before, couching, making cord out of floss and making tassels.  Yup, the dude sports some nice tassels.  They are all the rage in the space fairing wizarding crowd you know.  The kit included blending filament and gold metallic floss.  So my man here is sparkly too.

Wonderful work on it, rockage has been achieved!  Cool
14  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / It's a blanket... a HUGE blanket it is! on: April 20, 2011 08:38:31 PM
When you go, go big!  That is generally my motto.  I decided that I needed to make a blanket, in fact the reason I chose to learn to crochet is to make one of those fabulous starghans.  Oh yes someday I will have my own.  Until then I hone my crochet skills.  I learned much making this, it's far from perfect it is wider at one end than the other but my husband, my son and my cat all find it irresistible.  I use single crochet for 11 rows, switched to double chain stitch for 3 (though I think in one spot I had 4 rows) then switched back to single crochet for the remainder of the skein of yarn.  Then I repeated my little pattern for 7 skeins. 

This thing is giant, we estimate (only due to the tape measure missing) it to be 8 feet long and about 5 feet wide.  Grin

Some close up's of the lovely colors

I have a few more pictures on my blog and quite a bit of rambling.   Wink
I love the thoughts and advice of people that are more experienced in the ways of crochet than I... this would be everyone.   Cheesy

Wow!  Everyone's projects look great!  I've been a little on the lazy side and will have to do some catch up stitching.  Wink

I have a wizard update, Been working on him a bit but now that I got a new job stitching is slowing down.  I have made progress though and thought it was about time for an update.  I'm sorry the picture is not better quality but it is what it is.  Smiley

I'll just keep on stitching, stitching, stitching, stitching.

19  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Flower DOW towels for my Mother on: September 19, 2010 08:52:01 AM
Hello one and all, been a bit again since I've logged on to post any new projects.  A while back I had stitched up some chickens for my neighbor and during that project my mom expressed (I should say hinted) at wanting some of her own towels made by me.  So I got to work on them after I dug out the patterns from the depths of my computer, I wish I could post the site that I pulled them from but it has been ages ago and I just can't remember where they came from now.
Well, let's get onto the stitching.

I used stem stitch for almost the entire batch, adding a few french knots where needed.  Needless to say she loved them.  I suppose I should have held onto them for a holiday or something like that but they weren't ready for her birthday so I suppose they would be a very late birthday gift.  Oh, one other thing....
I LOVE variegated floss!
