1  Re: I miss that SOOOOO much!!! Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Ruby Copperhead on: June 28, 2015 11:14:02 AM
It's a late addition to a great gallery, but both Isi and I had a lot going on in our lives, so I didn't mind the waiting. Also we both may have a little problem with going overboard when swapping with each others *cough* And it turned out it was well worth waiting for.

So here's my lovely swap package:

Five amazing placemats in the for me foreign art of quilting! I was already super happy about them without realizing what they were because I loved the colors so much.
Then I saw the matching coasters! Combining my love for pixel sprites with my love for Sailor Moon. The Sailor Moon fandom has been a double edged sword lately, so I having these beautiful items to throw in the happy scales has been something I'm extra grateful for.
And IsikkahJai's daughters made the coasters! Which makes them even cuter!

Here's the sprites again: (technical problems, therefor blurry, unfortunately)

Sprites and placemats have gone straight to decorative purposes, as I really don't see how I would let anyone leave stains on them Wink The placemats even have secret Ghibli embroidery in them!

I also got a set of Ghandi cards, beautiful, and with great skill of papercrafting (another art which is a closed book to me). I'm tempted to keep them, but they would make perfect gifts, too.

Thank you IsikkahJai, you know me just too well, everything is lovely and made me very happy!

2  Azuma Wataru from Tumbling/Nephrite from PGSM and a tiny Sailor Pluto in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Ruby Copperhead on: March 29, 2014 12:16:39 PM
A while ago, I discovered the J-drama "Tumbling" and its amazing cast, and fell in love with it.
It took me about a year to complete this Wataru amigurumi (craft blocks suck).
I recently gave him to a friend who loves him too and added the little Pluto for him to cuddle.

Reference pics

(Yamamoto Yusuke is an amazing actor. His proportions are difficult to catch in an amigurumi though and I need to do a better job on them next time.)

Amigurumi Wataru for me also represents a high school age PGSM Nephrite (long story)

Progress pics
I'm so proud of the jacket. Worked to look like it was made in rounds (by doing the backrows in backward sc), and the sleeves were done with a bigger hook so they would be flexible enough to slip through.

And a last one!

I'm currently working on the next one and this time, I'm taking notes for a pattern!

3  Re: Sailor Moon Craftalong 2014 in Craftalongs by Ruby Copperhead on: March 29, 2014 08:33:42 AM
Here's my Sailor Moon themed WIPs:

Older ones, which are some on-and-off aimless partsmaking mostly: Chibi senshi and chibi Shitennou


Only needing some assembly, accessorizing and faces: Chunky Mars and chibi Mars

And this chibi Beryl is going to be one of the coolest things I've ever made as soon as I've fixed the mistake that's currently covered by my thumb Wink

A very slow moving project: senshi colored hexagons for a blanket

another senshi hexagon WIP (still a bit wonky because prototype)

Hope that this craftalong will help me finish some of these!
I also have recently finished a project for a friend that I want to duplicate for myself: Nephrite and Pluto.

There's just so many Sailor Moon things I want to make, but I'm still in a craft block and suuuuuper slow.

I received a lovely Dalek stuffie from Inselaeffchen! Haha, I laughed when I opened the package because I made a Dalek too, but from a different pattern! Wink Hers is soft and cuddly and the color is a lot more brilliant than what the pictures show.
I wanted it to go next to my computer, but my kids have made the Dalek chef of the stuffie restaurant after many "Would you care for some TEeeAA?"s Wink and now he's guard of my water bottle Smiley
I got some Doctor Who loot too, yay UK swap partners! Wink

Threatening the heck out of the TARDIS keychain:

Daleks are secretly cuddle monsters:

Thank you, Inselaeffchen, I love my package!

5  Tears to rainbows in Crochet: Completed Projects by Ruby Copperhead on: November 09, 2013 11:48:58 AM
I had some really really bad days, and I needed my brightest colors around me, so I made a little rainbow ripple to keep me company.

Here it is on the stool it was made to cover, brightening the room, and playing tricks with everyone's perception.

The pattern I used is the Neat Ripple Pattern from Attic24.
I think next time I would revert the colors of the second rainbow, but for this one, I liked the continuous color progression and I'm quite happy with the whole piece.

I received my package from Monty! The very first thing I could see when opening the envelope was green yarn - green is my favourite color, and yarn is my favourite thing, so I was already happy with the swap Smiley but I got more nice colors, and a lovely rich brown that will be beautiful doll hair, and a crazy amount of colors in embroidery floss, plus two hoops.

Thank you Monty! I love the package, I have already plans for pretty much everything you sent me.

7  Re: 2013 Annual DeStash-Along in Craftalongs by Ruby Copperhead on: January 04, 2013 04:06:53 AM
Hehe, Wulf, okay, I see the problem. Wink

Time for my pictures:
My yarn and fabric archive

This looks tidy, but it's not good, the boxes just got filled up with whatever was around when we moved, and they're not in the order I need them to be in. My goal is to get all the boxes numbered (only the red ones are numbered right now), and sort them through, and make a list of what's where.
Also, on the right, rogue boxes taking up what was supposed to be a crafting space. Not good!

Then I have these, and more of these, former fabric boxes who didn't make it whole throught he move and need to be replaced, hopefully going into the archive, too...

and this is the stash that drives me nuts! It's work-in-progress boxes and unfinished projects boxes (those counts as stash, too) for which I have no good place right now, and other crafty stuff that got put here "for a few days". Definitely need to inventorize and organize these, and put them to use. And I need a better working space so I can have some in-progress projects around.

I have another place for stashing boxes, but these three are the ones that I want to sort through in January. Plus the sewing table (not pictured).

I received my wonderful package from craftyzooprgrl and look at this!

Thorin Oakenshield!

I'm really sorry that the picture doesn't do him justice, but the winter light and my camera... *sigh* He has this black battle skirt thing underneath that the camera doesn't capture well, and he's much more cuddly in person! His hair is absolutely perfect! I love him!

And I got this lovely Hobbit themed jewellery set:

I especially adore Stitch, but the little naughty dimples in the acorns amuse me too Wink

And I got an amazing extra!

Thank you craftyzooprgrl!

9  Paddestoel? What is a paddestoel? in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Ruby Copperhead on: December 02, 2012 03:09:24 AM
My guess is as good as yours Wink Wink Wink but they look like this:

I found these cute mushrooms by a blogger called Jacq a few weeks ago, and made two with different needle and yarn sizes. The pattern is here.
It was a challenge because the pattern is in Dutch of which I only have the most basic grasp, but it turned out that the pattern was very easy to work with. When I had to do some guessing, it was always easy from the pictures where the crochet would go.

So this was a fun autumn project!

10  Re: R2D2 hat with adjustable stripe pattern in Crochet: Completed Projects by Ruby Copperhead on: November 29, 2012 08:24:36 AM
I'll try to explain how I did it.

This is what you end up with

In more words: When you have crochet a round in grey, you end up "one store higher" than blue, so to speak, and you would leave your blue yarn behind if you just crocheted on.
What I do now before I start the next stitch is change to blue, then change to grey again, then make the stitch. This results in the yarns being wrapped around each other, which keeps the blue yarn neatly tucked away.
The same trick works within a round, too. You can see in the picture how the grey yarn is wrapped into the backside of a blue stripe and vice versa.

If you are used to a different technique for crocheting with two colors, you can use that, too.

Hope it helped, if not, I can try to take pictures of the steps tomorrow.
