That wreath is so pretty!

GlassKicker sent me the coolest necklace and bracelet.

She stamped "Cowgirl Up" on a necklace for me and as an added bonus, made me a wonderful bracelet that says, " cowgirl at <3"


Thank you soooo much! I love both of them and can't wait to wear them to the next rodeo. (sorry for the crappy pictures, I took them with my phone-I will try to get action shots tonight)

348  Three Little Girls in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by kittykill on: April 28, 2013 06:49:54 AM
I stitched these up for Gamemom42 in the ongoing pinterest swap.  I decided to put them into individual hoops. I am pretty happy with the way they turned out. I might need to make some for myself.  Cheesy

349  Second Quarter Featured Artist - SilentBlair! in Needlework: Discussion and Questions by kittykill on: April 20, 2013 06:55:18 AM
This quarter's featured needlework is Fionna and Cake from slientblair. Can I just say, "WOW!" The stitching is this piece is AMAZING! The icing on the cake is that slientblair is AWE-SOME! So stinking nice, I can't stand it! Check it out!



Tell me a little about yourself:
I am a manic crafter. I tend to have several projects going at once to work on depending on mood, location, or child proximity. Therapeutic crafting makes lots of sense to me. I love to try my hand at any and all crafting, but lately my heart is in embroidery.



Tell us a little about the piece:
This is Fionna and Cake from the Cartoon Network Show Adventure Time.
The purpose for stitching this up was for the Invite Your Partner Swap, R22 on Craftster.org for my partner QueenofMarigold.
I also love to take any opportunity to do studies in texture

What/Who inspires you:
Im greatly inspired by nerd/pop culture and things that make me laugh. I love mixing up texture in my stitching for fill-ins and the contrast of textures inspires me for how and where I might do a certain fill.
In real life, my Monday Night Knit Nite peeps. They rule and are priceless for bouncing ideas and advice! (ex: Heather Dreisbach, her color choices and intricate stitching push me to try and impress her. http://pinterest.com/delirium_child/things-i-make/)
Online inspire-ateers are so many on both craftster and pinterest I could fill this whole page up! SO many talented people: Averia, KittyKill  Wink LimeRiot, Helena Puck, Homerof2to name a few.




What advice would you give to newbies:
I would say, to not fear a certain fabric or stitch. The fantastic thing about the stitchy-craft is you can rip it out if its not working. Experiment with transfer techniques. My favorite way is to tape the image printed out on my window and then tape the fabric over that. I then trace onto the fabric with a water soluble marker

What are you working on next:
I am just about finishing up a hoopla of  Vanellope Von Schweetz Youre My Hero Cookie Medal, from the movie Wreck it Ralph.
Its got some felt aspects ala LimeRiot and buttons and thread! Oh, and it's big...I'm using a 12 inch hoop. I usually tend to stick around the 6-8 inchers.


One of the best days of my life is
This just comes to mind, but Im sure there are more meaningful ones
The fateful day was way back in the year 2000. I went to a Zena, the Warrior Princess convention in Phoenix and the speaker wasBruce Campbell!
I got the guts up to get in line to have him sign a meek little scrap of paper, and he was awesomely, good naturedly snarky to me in such a way I carry it to this day. We had a little back and forth about The Blair Witch Project, and me not getting as much crap as I shouldve because I share a name with the movie. At least in my opinion, we got to have a moment.
The memory will live with me forever!   Cheesy
