21  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Bird anatomy on: May 29, 2009 06:53:43 AM
I made this for the anatomy themed swap over on the Phat Quarter flickr group. http://www.flickr.com/groups/phatquarter/  I searched several different animal types before settling on a bird because birds are pretty much awesome. 

 It's about 5" x 7"

Pretty interesting innards. 

Thanks for looking!

22  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / More Tea Towels!! on: May 09, 2009 10:26:12 AM
I thought I'd show the towels I made for the Tea Towel swap too!!  i only have pics of two of them because my camera seems to not want to unload the third one for some reason.  Anyway---
There's an owl cookie jar.  I used variegated thread for the vines and I like the way it looks! Its an Aunt Martha's pattern.

I love his eyes.

 Then there is a 50's atomic pattern.  i tried to use some of the same colors that were in the stripes of the towel.  I even used some metallic thread for one of the starbursts. 

The third one was a 50's housewife cooking on a stove.  You can see it here if you want http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=302222.20

Thanks for looking.  You guys are great.

23  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / I Heard it Through the Grapevine! **EDITED Added Another Raisin!! on: March 18, 2009 07:08:49 PM
Well I wanted to do something small as a way to procrastinate on something larger I need to start working on---so why not a California Raisin!!!  I know not all of you may know them but as an 80's kid I fondly remember the commercials with the claymation raisins dancing around.  Totally awesome! 

He's totally rocking out!
And just for a laugh, here's the set.  I may have to do the rest!  I just love thrift store scores!

EDIT:  I just finished the sax player!  These are only a few inches high so easy to finish in an evening. 

(dang and I just realized that I didn't cross a stitch!  I hate when I do that  D'oh!)
24  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Beware: Sickenly cute Easter animals! on: March 16, 2009 06:37:26 PM
  I stitched up this towel using an Aunt Martha pattern with extremely cute Easter animals with their Easter eggs.   I went overboard with pastel and cotton candy colors because I'm tired of drab winter! I am ready for Spring!

Little chick strutting with his Easter basket.

Bunny with a huge Easter egg.

Chick rolling his egg down a hill.

Mr. Duck painting his egg.

Three little ducks playing in the rain.

Here's how it all looks on the towel. 

I think it turned out super cute! Hope it brightens your day. 
Thanks for looking--as always!! 
25  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Cross stitch: Love Lives Here on: March 07, 2009 05:56:33 AM
I made this for a friend after seeing the pattern in a cross stitch magazine I found at the thrift store for a quarter.  It absolutely suits her outlook on life.  She's a massage therapist and single mom who believes love truly has healing powers.  She's a special person. 

This took a couple weeks working on and off.  I messed up a couple times but just rolled with it and made it work.  I'm not the type of person to rip out a bunch of stitches unless it's just totally messed up.  That's just how I am.  I know some cross stitchers would just die if they mis-stitched! 

The flowers took the longest of course.  They had a lot of color changes within them.

As always, thanks for looking!! 
26  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / A gnome in love! on: February 01, 2009 08:30:43 AM
I stitched this up for the Embroidered Valentines Swap. We had a to do a tea towel and a small item.  I found the original design here http://www.flickr.com/photos/awindow4me/2258873689/ and then added the house and more mushrooms and changed the flowers in his hands to a box of chocolates.  I'm super happy with it.  Happy Valentine's Day!

He's too cute!

For the small I made a wrist pincushion.  I made a litle cross stitch of a heart in a hoop. 

And some felt magnets which I really like.

Thanks for looking!
27  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Pucca and Garu cross stitch on: January 30, 2009 07:06:49 PM
I made this for my sister for her birthday.  She loves Pucca!  The patterns are here:
http://littlemojo.110mb.com/chobitonepiecepucca.htm  My sister loved it. 

Too cute!

The frame really made it pop I think.

Garu hates it when Pucca kisses him!

But Pucca always gets her way!

Thanks for looking!
28  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Last of the Christmas stuff------I promise! on: January 27, 2009 05:56:47 PM
I'm finally getting around to posting the last of my Christmas embroidery.  I made these for the 12 Days of Xmas Swap. 

3 Santa towels.  Aunt Martha patterns that are too cute!!

I took this crappy pic before I realized that I forgot to do his eyes so just visualize them! 

Then I did a huge banner with different embroideries on christmas fabric.  Each piece was about 6"x9" or so. Here's just a couple--more on my blog if at all interested.  But this came out great!  It became so huge that I couldn't get a picture of it all stretched out together!

Thanks for looking and I swear, no more christmas stuff (until next year)!
29  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Cardinal pillow on: January 19, 2009 05:11:56 PM
I made this pillow for my mom for Christmas as a memorial to my grandmother (her mother) that passed away 2 years ago.  She loved cardinals and my mom and I always think of my grandmother when we see a cardinal.  The pattern is an Aunt Marthas.  I absolutely love it!

I added some detail with black and tried to shade with different tones of reds.

And just because, the back fabric is a cute heart fabric to give it a bit of whimsy.

As always thanks for letting me share!
30  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Banjo playing snowman ornament on: January 19, 2009 05:06:32 PM
I made this for my stepdad for Christmas but just recently got to get a pic of it.  I found the image online and just thought it was too cute.  My stepdad plays the banjo so I thought it was very appropriate and just fun!

Like others I posted, I just backed it with felt and added a fun ribbon.

I like it!
