21  Coraline items in Needlework: Completed Projects by fiberartsy on: October 23, 2009 06:51:39 PM
I wanted to share what I made for my partner for the Coraline swap.  I'm really pleased with everything.  First I did some ornaments--the embroidered ones are of Wybie and a rag doll Coraline. 

I found this cute little rag doll pattern from the vintage craft book I picked up at a thrift store. 

Then I did a two-sided pillow.  First side has Coraline going through the tunnel to the other side and I added the button key.

The other side has the Other Mother and the three little ghost children--kinda creepy.

I'm so pleased with this pillow.  I worked a long time on it and hated to give it away! 
Thanks for looking!

22  Halloween bunnies in Needlework: Completed Projects by fiberartsy on: October 23, 2009 06:01:03 PM
I have been wanting to do these probably since last Halloween so I finally got around to it. I got the free pattern here http://craftblog.com.au/2008/10/21/free-creepy-critters-needlework-pattern/  They are really too cute.


Bony Bunny


Boo Bunny
I made them into little ornaments.  Just backed them with felt and added some Halloween ribbon.

23  Re: Tea Towel Tour Gallery - As seen on TTTV in The Swap Gallery by fiberartsy on: October 12, 2009 04:14:22 PM
I worked like a fiend on greenliightgo's towel.  I just couldn't stop stitching!  She has a nature theme for her towel so I chose this Aunt Martha's pattern of a persimmon tree branch with a couple persimmons on it.  It reminded me of the persimmon tree in my mom's yard growing up.  I used the linen thread which I love and I think worked really well with this pattern, soft, muted, natural colors.    (The only thing not linen is the black and the orange of the persimmons)  I'm really pleased with this design. 

Here's the towel so far.

Wow guys... Everything looks awesome! I received an AMAZING package from Fiberartsy... I've got serious swap anxiety now! I won't be able to post pics until I get Internet here, since my phone won't upload to craftster photo hosting- but if fiberartsy wants to post some til I can get mine up I'd love that! Internet should be here on the 13th still.

You guys will not BELIEVE the detail she put into my package! I just sit and stare at the large item sometimes Cheesy

thank you SO MUCH fiberartsy!!!

I'm so glad you like everything! I'll post a few pics and you can add more later once you get your internet all set up!  So here goes:
Spink and Forcible necklace

Little wooden box

with ornaments in it.  I figured it was close enough to Christmas.  There is a rag doll Coraline, Wybie, Cat, Scotty dog and chicken oven mitt

And then an embroidered pillow.  First side has Coraline going through the tunnel to Other Mother's house.  I also added the key.

Other side has Other Mother and the three ghost children on it.  I love this piece and really had a hard time giving it up!!

Again, I'm so glad you like it all Melvinator. This swap was so fun to craft for!

The coral looks great!  I envy your french knot ability!

Greenlightgo asked me to post what sundayafternoonhous ewife added to her nature themed towel.  A pretty butterfly and flower.  Now I'm off to begin adding to it!

Here is my addition to sundayafternoonhous ewife's towel.  She wanted us to do things that represented our states like flowers, birds etc.  So I did the outline of NC (in Carolina blue), a dogwood flower which is our state flower and the Hatteras lighthouse.  I'm sending it on it's way tomorrow!    I am loving everything that everyone has stitched so far.  Some real creativity!

Super cute birdies!!  I finished my design and will probably get it in the mail on Monday unless I can somehow magically make it to the PO tomorrow.  The design is my own.  I think it goes perfectly with my theme of no theme.  Sorry about the not so great pic.  I'm have to buy a new camera soon.  I can't wait to see what everyone stitches!

28  The Leaky Cauldron in Needlework: Completed Projects by fiberartsy on: August 22, 2009 09:41:05 AM
I made this for my friend.  We love Harry Potter so I wanted to do this for her new place.  It's black thread on 16 count aida.  I got the pattern here: http://www.the-leaky-cauldron.org/features/crafts/needlework/leakysign

And here's the frame i found for $4 that I think looks great with it.  Looks a little worn and rustic--perfect for the Leaky Cauldron.

As always--thanks for looking!!!!!

29  Bee towel in Needlework: Completed Projects by fiberartsy on: August 08, 2009 03:46:31 PM
I made this towel for my bf's mom for her birthday.  I held out several of my patterns and he liked the bee one from Aunt Martha's so that's what i did.  I wanted bright summery colors! 

I love the cute face!

30  Rockin' Rooster in Needlework: Completed Projects by fiberartsy on: July 24, 2009 05:54:37 AM
I made this towel for my mom's birthday. She likes roosters because they remind her of her father.  So she collects rooster things for her kitchen.  I'll give it to her tonight--hope she likes it!  The pattern is a good 'ol Aunt Martha's. 

I kept thinking of that movie Rock-a Doodle when I was stitching it.

The little adoring fan is cute too. 
I'll have to do the other days for another occasion. 

Thanks for looking!!  I really appreciate you guys!
