21  Elder Futhark runes in on antler in Completed Projects by saxonsweetie on: April 24, 2009 07:22:59 PM
I wanted to make a set of runes, and I was cruising around ebay and found a set of 8 mule deer antler bits for cheap, so I said "Meh, why not?". My father in law actually cut them into little "coins" and I burned the runes into them. It wasn't particularly hard, but I enjoyed it and think it has paved the way for future bone and antler projects for me. It's a pretty neat medium to work with.

22  My first ever cross stitch! in Needlework: Completed Projects by saxonsweetie on: April 24, 2009 06:58:11 PM
I bought a milk crate full of old cross stitch patterns at an awesome thrift store downtown. The whole box was only $5, and it was so packed with patterns that there was no room for even one more. I finally got around to looking through it and found a little piece of peachy pink fabric tucked away in one of the little books with seashells in it. I thought to myself "Self, you should give this a try." And so I did. I present to you, my first ever cross stitch project! Grin

I also would like to present a little embroidery of the goddess Saga, with whom wise old Odinn holds court every day. She isn't finished, as she does not have a mouth, but I am working on it. The little bits of green on the bottom are just some practice stitches I never got around to taking out. I am rather proud of the detail I got into her hair and the stump she is seated on. She is playing a Saxon Harp, in case you were wondering what that instrument was.  Wink

23  Better late than never- Halloween Wreath! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by saxonsweetie on: November 01, 2008 06:28:47 AM
This is my first wreath ever. I know it isn't perfect, but I rather like it. I should have taken a few more pics of it.

Anyway, it's just a grapevine wreath that I spray painted black with a little silver. I wrapped some black and silver ribbon around it, and a little white lace. My husband picked out the spiders. The bow is my first attempt at one of those big, poofy, wreath-type bows. I'll probably remake it, since it's a little lopsided. It seems a little plain to me, but I didn't want it too busy.

Questions and comments are always appreciated!

24  Purse from Upholstery scraps in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by saxonsweetie on: August 31, 2008 06:22:08 AM
I hope this works.... I've been posting, but this is the first project I've been able to get a picture of so that I could post it. I'm very excited with the way this bag came out. The inside is plain, no pockets or anything. I made a new one that has pockets, but I don't have a photo of it. Anyway, here it is (hope this works)!
