1  Presenting my daughter, the cheese in Halloween Costumes by shootingstar on: November 01, 2008 03:03:58 PM
There is a bit of a back story to this costume.  May daughter, now 3, recieved a Sesame Street DVD as a gift last year about this time.  In this DVD, Ben Stiller is a guest in the "People in Your Neighborhood" song, and he dresses up as a cheese in order to be a "person in the neighborhood."  (See video)

She asked me weekly, for and ENTIRE YEAR, for a cheese costume for Halloween.  Without further adeu, my daughter, the cheese:




(this is her "cheese face")



The costume is made of felt, foam core board, masking tape, and hot glue.  Oh, and I sewed the felt pieces together. 

We went to the Fall Festival at our church, and everyone thought she was a riot.  (Only one person thought that she was a piece of pie.)

So, here is the only picture I've managed to take of this...  I can't get it away from my daughter to even weave in the ends!

3  Strawberry Cupcakes in Dessert by shootingstar on: September 17, 2008 09:16:23 PM
My daughter turned 3 a couple weeks ago, and she wanted a Strawberry Shortcake birthday party.  I wasn't going to pay $35.00 to get a nasty cake with too much frosting just to have Strawberry Shortcake.  So I spent the money on making her a fancy dress and tried my hand at cupcake decorating.  I used a boxed cake and store frosting, and the kind of frosting that comes in an aerosol can with interchangeable tips.  The first few were a little rough, but they tasted good and she loved them, so what can I say?   Cheesy

4  Star blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by shootingstar on: September 17, 2008 09:09:04 PM
I jumped on the bandwagon and made a star blanket.  It was my intent to actually make something for myself (as if!) but my daughter stole it halfway through.  I can't get it away from her to weave in the ends or get a real picture of it...   Roll Eyes  I guess that means she likes it?



I'll try to get another picture so you can see the size, etc.
Always love to see your comments!
(The colors aren't very true, the red is more of a pink/fuchsia color)

5  Another (baby) hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by shootingstar on: September 17, 2008 09:05:19 PM
I'm trying to use up all of the bits of yarn I've begun to accumulate, this is from Puffin Baby Hat and Booties pattern (a free pattern from straw.com).  I used Bernat Softee Chunky and size 7 needles.  I don't have any (baby) action pictures, the baby I made them for isn't due until December.  But my 3 yo was happy to oblige.





I just realized I forgot to take pictures of the booties   Tongue
Always love to see comments!

6  Re: ANOTHER Pin Cushion Swap Round 8 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by shootingstar on: August 23, 2008 02:49:51 PM
I received from stacysews yesterday...  I was so excited that I ripped open the box in the car (DH was driving), so I didn't get a picture of the whole pretty package.  She included the sweetest little notecard, too.  Anyways, on to the pictures!






This has the most true to life colors (sorry, it was really dark when I snapped the pics...) but I don't know what's up with the wavy lines on the petals  Huh

The top is a suede-ish, micro fiber-ish chocolate brown, and the coordinating pink-and-brown (my favorite colors together Grin) fabrics on the petals and base are beautiful...  I know that she has some pictures on her blog, they're probably better than mine are - I managed to control myself and not peek!  Stacy, thank you so much, I LOVE this pincushion!

7  My first completed project... in Knitting: Completed Projects by shootingstar on: August 07, 2008 10:00:30 PM
I wasn't sure if I should post this under "spinning" or "knitting,"  but I figured since I already posted the handspun yarn, it should go here.  Anyways, here is the progression:



This is 100% Merino heather top from Woodland Woolworks, in sapphire (about 8 oz.)



This is what it turned into, a thick-and-thin (not on purpose) yarn plied with a navy thread.  This is only about a third of what I spun.  (I still have to ply the rest, I ran out of thread.)


This is what the yarn turned into (it was magic, I swear!  No help from me... Wink)
A seed stitch hat from a free pattern off the Jo-Ann's website, so graciously modeled by my iron.



Aaaannnd a weird face picture to show how it looks on a head, instead of an iron.
I'm  a little iffy on it, there's a couple places I messed up the seed stitch, and it turned into ribs, and it's a little bigger than I wanted (even after I changed the pattern to make it smaller), but other than that, I'm pretty happy with it!
Edit:  I used size 7, 29" circulars...  forgot to put that in.

8  Re: 4th of July Fiber Friday 2008! in Spinning: Completed Projects by shootingstar on: July 04, 2008 08:58:42 AM
Yay! This is also my first Fiber Friday, and you don't even understand how excited I am!

Storm Cloud  This is 100% Merino from Woodland Woolworks, unbelieveably squooshy and soft!  The color is a little more gray and not so blue (it matched the storm clouds that were building yesterday afternoon while I was taking pictures, hence the name.)  No idea on the yardage, this is only about 1/3 of what I spun.  I plied it with navy sewing thread.

9  One down... in Weddings and Bridal Showers by shootingstar on: June 17, 2008 04:34:11 PM
I was "volunteered" by my sweet, sweet husband Roll Eyes to make two flowergirl dresses and majorly alter two more for his friend's wedding.  Here is the first.

Attaching the petticoat (what a nightmare - my machine wouldn't stitch the netting by itself, so the entire petticoat is hand-gathered, about 10 yards.)


The front - the dress itself isn't crooked, I didn't have anywhere bright to hang it straight.


A close-up of the bodice and the top of the skirt.  This is pretty close to the actual colors.



The back - sorry about the bad lighting, I'm not a photographer! Wink



AND....  a close-up of the back.



I still plan on adding some hand-made ribbon roses to the front at the top of the skirt/bottom of the bodice, to make it a little more interesting.  Oh, and I used pattern 4759 from McCall's.

Send out some good vibes for me, the wedding is on the 28th!
