I made this for a swap that I am in. My partner really likes Sailor Jerry and pin up's so I thought this was a slight cross of the two. Sorry about the blurry pictures.

306  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Vervaco pillow on: August 13, 2008 10:05:05 PM
I ordered some pillows to make for presents. The company is Vervaco. Here's my dilemma. I thought it was needlepoint but the directions say cross stitch and the directions are translated from German so the English version is very choppy at best. The "thread" is yarn just like needlepoint and I tried the cross stitch method but it looks really bulky. When I did a normal needlepoint stitch it looks to thin. Any advice? As anyone used this company before?

Here's the pillow.

308  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / August Feature Project and Interview on: August 05, 2008 08:40:06 PM
This month's featured project is from RachelKristin. Let's learn a little more about her and her amazing project.......



1. Tell me a little about the project
I'm a pretty big nerd & i absolutely love anything nintendo-related. I lurked around spritestitch.com for a long time before deciding to go ahead & try my hand at cross-stitching something. At the time I was going through a bit of drama & thought it would be better to put my negativity into something constructive! Mario flying, "rising above" his enemies seemed perfect to me!

2. Tell me a little about yourself
I live in lower Alabama, go to cosmetology school & manage the local Smoothie King. I'm a 25 year old kid & I can make a song out of anything. My favorite author of all time is Chuck Palahniuk. I really like reading & watching anything on serial killers but I promise I'm not a total weirdo. Smiley I have an insanely awesome husband! We look like brother & sister & it freaks everyone out. Oh, and I'm an Aries.  Cheesy

3. What inspires you?
Most of my work is inspired by tattoos, video games, human anatomy, feminism, four letter words, pinup girls...

4. How long have you been stitching and how did you get started.
I've only been stitching for about 3 years or so. My mother was an incredibly crafty woman & made most of mine & my brother's clothes. Sewing & embroidery was her livelihood for a long time. I guess it was kind of inherited! But the first time I became really interested in needlepoint was reading an issue of BUST magazine & seeing a cute little "Babies Suck" sampler. I was hooked from then on!

5. What would you tell inspiring needle craftsters.
Hmm..I would say just do it! Pick up that needle & floss and get to work! Create whatever inspires you. Practice. Be patient. Try new things!
309  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Hand made tattoo heart on: July 20, 2008 07:09:49 PM
I made this as a thank you for a very special person. I hope she likes it. I found an old frame and spray painted it red.
 
310  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Squirrel bib on: July 19, 2008 09:36:04 PM
This is the first time I tried embroidering on a bib. I think it turned out okay. I'm trying to figure out a way to cover the back so the stitches don't show.
