1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Schnappfisch - half embroidery, half crochet on: May 09, 2011 02:15:50 PM
So our accountant's birthday was on April 1st and I decided to make her something nice because she's like a mother to us.
We have an office dog whom she always calls "Schnappfisch" (lit. bitey fish) and her favorite color is orange - so I made her an bitey goldfish Smiley

The font is Kaleidoscope and I didn't do french knots but colonial knots, because they sat smaller on my fabric.

At first I tried to do the scales with a detached buttonhole stitch, but that didn't work so well, so I got a small crochet hook and did them in single crochets.

Thanks for looking!
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / First Post - Bookmark - Cross Stitch on: July 24, 2008 07:25:13 AM
Hi, uhm I'm new *waves*

So I did this bookmark for my boyfriend's and my 4th month (silly I know, but still), as he's a student for English and German and has to read a lot of books. Our nicknames are honey bunny and pumpkin (yes, as in the Pulp Fiction figures Wink), so I thought 'Hey why not make that the subject'.

I had some issues with the bottom as you can see but I think it worked out quite well Smiley

I took the pics out of a pixel forum and converted them to a stitching pattern - the pumpkin has about 12 colours, the heart has 4 and the bunny has 6. I didn't have good tones of red so the heart looks bit wonky but.. yeah ^^

On to the pics

Details on the bunbun

(totally forgot the back details!)

Inside the bookmark I put a piece of cardboard to make it sturdier..

So, what do you think? :3
