341  Sew Lovely Needlework Challenge Entries Due December 2nd-9th in Needlework: Discussion and Questions by kittykill on: November 01, 2013 08:46:33 AM
Congratulations to Pottermouth! Check out her amazing work!

Craftster has teamed up with the very wonderful, very generous and very talented Sew Lovely Embroidery to bring you this awesome needlework challenge! What's the challenge you ask? Well, I'm going to tell you! The pattern you see below, created by Sew Lovely Embroidery, is dying to be stitched up by you! Have fun with it! Alter it! Make this pattern yours! Want to tint the deer, then go for it....want to stitch it on paper, do it! Just make sure you keep an element of the pattern in your design.

Now for even more exciting news! There will be THREE winners! A first, second and third place. I told you Sew Lovely was AWESOME!


The pattern is shown in the next post, THIS IS THE PATTERN YOU MUST STITCH/ALTER!

Crafting time for this project is November 1st-December 2nd

Entries are due from December 2nd to December 9th.  On December 2nd, 2013, there will be a special folder created for entries, you can post them there. DO NOT POST ENTRIES IN THIS THREAD!

Voting will happen from December 10th-December 17th

Only ONE entry per person!

344  Needlework Featured Artist, Ludi in Needlework: Discussion and Questions by kittykill on: October 24, 2013 02:24:28 PM
I don't know if there are enough words to describe how talented our Needlework Featured Artist, Ludi, is. I am constantly blown away by each stitch. Ludi's pieces are rich in texture and hauntingly beautiful.  Let's find out a little more about this amazing artist.

Tell me about your little bit about yourself.

I live in the country with my husband and a bunch of animals; 5 cats, a dog, 5 sheep, many chickens, and of course all the wild animals.  My husband and I make things for a living, we have a business making specialty costumes and props for the entertainment industry.  In addition we both make things for fun, so we end up spending most of our waking hours making things.  I consider myself primarily a sculptor and have only taken up embroidery in recent months.  My other hobbies include gardening and reading.

Do you have a favorite out of your recent needlework projects?

Its hard for me to choose, I have so much fun with each piece.  I really enjoyed stitching Zombie and the Moon for MissingWillow in the One Tiny Thing October Holidays swap.

Who/What inspires you?

Im tremendously inspired by literature, especially my favorite author Mervyn Peake.  Hes been my inspiration since my teens.  Im also inspired by other dark fantasists such as HP Lovecraft, HR Wakefield, Poe, etc.  Other artists inspire me, and I love looking at other peoples art in all media.

What are you working on next?

I have so many ideas for new embroideries!  I hope eventually to do more portraits of fictional characters, but my next project will probably be a Meowl a cat-owl hybrid, for my sister.  And I want to try my hand at miniature embroidery.

345  Where' Spooky? in Needlework: Completed Projects by kittykill on: October 11, 2013 10:09:45 AM
My last Halloween needlework for awhile, I promise (maybe)

Every year I get the Just Cross Stitch magazine that has nothing but Halloween patterns in it. It is the best! I found this cute little pattern in it. It was so cute, I knew I had to stitch it up.

347  Secret Skull in Needlework: Completed Projects by kittykill on: October 10, 2013 01:35:55 PM
For the Weekend Trick or Treat swap I stitched this up for my partner. I didn't realize I could stitch so fast. I almost wanted to keep it for myself. Cheesy

I received from sweetyetevil today! Sorry for the image overload. She sent me so many goodies that I have been wanting to make for myself and just never got around to doing it.
Check out the awesome bag with matching lip balm cozy. Lots of little goodies-skull magnets, syringe pen, pumpkin lotion bar!

I love these ornaments! They are hanging on our Halloween trees.


Thank you so much for everything! It is all so wonderful!
