1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Nothing says summer like fruit salad... on: May 22, 2006 07:56:24 PM
...on my skirt!





I made the waistband out of my sister's old sweatpants, but the fruit material is stretchy t-shirt type stuff I got on sale. It has little buttons on the side because my mom and I accidently sewed part of it inside out. Whoops!

Comments?

2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / For the Love of Cupcakes (and ice cream!) on: March 27, 2006 10:46:30 AM
For a few months, my embroidering was on hold. But then I picked it up again after being re-inspired here on Craftster! It was almost Valentine's Day when I drew the pattern (although I didn't stitch it up until about 2 weeks ago), but who cares that it's too late for Valentine's Day...my love of cupcakes in year round!



It took me a long time because of all the satin stitching, and some of the hearts are crooked, but what do you think?

About a week ago when I finished the cupcake, I needed something to do, so in one evening with a heck of a lot less work than the cupcake, I drew and stitched up a cute little ice cream cone!



Please excuse the not-so-great quality of pictures...it's my first time using the new scanner. Comments (on the embroidery, not the scanning job  Wink)?

3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Stitchalongs / Library/Librarian Stitchalong on: March 25, 2006 11:02:11 AM
Library/Librarian Stitchalong
the "rules"
~draw your own (or if you can find a librarian embroidery patterns you can use those, too!) library or librarian themed pattern and stitch it up!
~keep your voice to a whisper
~have fun and please share pictures!

I thought this could be a fun stitchalong, as so many people are eager for librarian themed Sublime Stitching patterns! And the more, the merrier! So lets get stitching!

4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Stitchalongs / "Brainstorming" Thread on: March 23, 2006 07:36:54 PM
I was thinking it would be good to have a "brainstorming" thread for stitchalongs because I for one don't want to start a stitchalong, only to end up stitching by myself. So just post any ideas you have for stitchalongs that you would be interested in! And remember...even if right now you are completly loaded with projects, work, school, etc., you can always join later. Now let's put on our thinking caps, ladies and gentleman!  Smiley
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / What's pink, red, white and black all over? on: February 06, 2006 06:55:13 PM
My valentines book for my good family friend, of course! I decide to go beyond a simple valentine for her, as she's a crafter too. So I glued little Valetines day themed things to the pages of a board book. Here's what I came up with.

The cover which is a sillouhette of a girl thinking love thoughts  Smiley.


The 1st and 2nd pages which say "love letter" (I was missing an "s"...whoops) and "sealed with a kiss" and has a cut up envelope that's what else? Sealed with a kiss.


The 3rd and 4th pages which has a little scrap of paper that has instruction on how to use the love dust and a piece of a doily, and on the other page, the words "love dust" and a packet of glitter...I mean love dust.


The 5th and 6th pages which has a tissue paper backround, a huge Hersheys bar wrapper and says "mend a" and has a picture of a broken heart.


The 7th and 8th pages which has cards, polka dotted fabric and says, "take a gamble with love".


The 9th and 10th pages which say "For love or money?" and has hearts and fake money.


What do you think? Thanks for looking!
