1  Re: Twilight Round 6 Swap (Sign Ups Closed) Send Out by 4/1/09 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by hippie4yahweh on: February 21, 2009 06:39:03 PM
Fiiiiinally stopped for 6 seconds to take some pics for you guys! (Posting these suckers everywhere, and emailing to everyone I know! hahahahaha)

Here's my ring!!


Excuse my ick hands- I'm a project mgr at a prototype shop (ie: lots of metal work, helping on the big machines and gernerally screwing my girly hands, lol)


It's kind of hard to see because I don't have a clue how to change my flash lol but it's one of those 3 stone eternity rings, and I looooove it and the boy has the best taste on earth!!

To make this post swap related in SOME way- I have cast on for the biggest project ever! I'm super glad that we have so long to craft lol, I think this'll take me days and days! haha

2  Chemo-friendly flowers in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by hippie4yahweh on: November 02, 2008 06:19:47 PM
My dad's dealing with chemo for leukemia right now (doing REALLY well though- blood counts up already- yeay!) but he's still not allowed any fresh flowers (or veggies or "unpeeled" fruit or... anything really!) and that made me super sad!

I haven't done anything with clay since pottery in high school, lol, but I happened past the Sculpey aisle at my favorite local craft shop and inspiration hit! (I'd originally tried making paper flowers, but I sucked SO bad at them! They turned out TERRIBLE lol)

I know these aren't the best ever, but my boyfriend and I spent a ridiculous amount of time on these so I wanted to share Smiley



The rectangle base, picket fence, little flower pots and "stems" are all acrylic painted wood, and we filled the pots with little pebbles (left overs that didn't fit into our fishbowl)

3  Cheap dress + pretty thread = niece's thxgiving outfit in Needlework: Completed Projects by hippie4yahweh on: November 02, 2008 06:01:58 PM
Super new to embroidery so I've used the most simple stitches, but I really like how this turned out! My SO's sister doesn't have a huge budget for fancy-pants baby clothes, and I wanted to make miss Haylee something special for the holidays. Considered gifting it for Christmas, but she's a chunky little 3 month old and I fear that it won't fit her by then! ha

I got this dress at the big bad W-M for a whopping $15, and it's become my favorite project I've done lately Smiley



Here's the detail around the neckline:


And my favorite, behind the little satin part in the center:


The best part is that it has a soft lining so none of the stitches will come close to Haylee's skin, so I didn't have to figure out that interfacing stuff- woohoo!

Let me know what you think, I really liked this project and plan on doing more, so any tips/ pointers would be hugely appreciated! Thanks!

4  Re: Help! Relatively quick ideas for a pregnant punk rock couple. in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by hippie4yahweh on: October 29, 2008 07:44:34 PM
Do this! (Only do it better than mine, k? Mine's a little sad)



Or a monster, or a space ship... or some other sweet stuff...?

Seriously, a pack of 3 wee baby tees is like $7, onesies are maybe a couple bucks more, and (even with all the trial and error of a total newbie) it only took me one evening- but you are FAR more talented with sewing and sh&% so you could probably do way better! (But really? Don't skimp on the stabilizer- that's why mine looks so jacked)

Have fun! Let me know if you need embroidery supplies, 'cause I just bought tons! (SUCH an idiot... lol)

5  Baby's first moustache & a X-mas tree- NEWBIE alert! in Needlework: Completed Projects by hippie4yahweh on: October 29, 2008 05:21:20 PM
Sooo.... I was so inspired by the BEAUTIFUL things you all have posted here, that I decided I had to try embroidery! Off to Michael's I went, and a couple days of practicing later here are the "finished" pieces I have!

Here's a little baby t I would have gifted to a really awesome lady I know (or rather her son) but I didn't find out about the stabilizer stuff until researching why this looks funny... oops!


And a little Christmas tree, of course I didn't bother to draw anything out first, that would be too easy! (I'm an idiot, lol) My step-mom would be a major fan of Christmas-themed hand towels (as long as I practice more)  Smiley


Advice, etc would be HUGELY appreciated, if any of you wouldn't mind? (thank you thank you thank you, I'm in need of help over here!)

6  My little green neckwarmer- 1st project in the round! in Knitting: Completed Projects by hippie4yahweh on: October 29, 2008 05:05:38 PM
So I've just learned to knit (yeay internet tutorials and an awesome friend learning with me!) and I immediately picked up circular needles- neckwarmers and cowls are so great!!

Here's my first project in the round, a neckwarmer that could probably be a teeny bit longer, in Mission Falls superwash merino (I really like this yarn!)

Lying flat:


On:  (See how it should be a little longer? Just barely covers my nose!)


Closeup of the stitches- I was just kind of playing around and made this spiral-ish pattern... ha, didn't turn out how I pictured it in my head! Smiley **This pic's closest in color, too


Comments/ constructive criticism super welcome! Thanks!!

7  My (kitsch)en- many gal. of paint harmed in the making... in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by hippie4yahweh on: September 27, 2008 06:32:19 AM
So I bought this house last fall, and since it was a foreclosure (and super nasty) we (SO and I) had to redo EVERY room in the house! (He wasn't much help with the planning, lol....) Plus, since EVERY room had to be touched we had a SUPER skinny budget.

I desperately wanted to get new kitchen cabinets and counter, but it just won't happen for a few years.

So what we did was:  paint the walls, paint the cabinets inside and out, new appliances, new faucet, new cabinet hardware, new vinyl tile floor (looks like stone-ish), removed a couple cab. doors for open storage, used ceramic paint to go over really ugly granny-flowered tiles in the backsplash, etc etc etc. It was super fun, but a LOT of work, and I really didn't spend much $$!

The dining room has a brown chair rail (same color as cab. frames) with rust on the bottom (same as cab. doors, but many shades darker) and the wheat color- seen around kit. window- on top. (Kit. and DR are connected)

So blah blah blah, right? lol- ok, I'll shut up, here are the pics! (Befores and afters)
Before (blech)                                                   After!! Yeay!!
 

So I really hate this valance, can't decide what to replace it with....


Before ::shivers with dread::                                love love love this room now Smiley
   

Let me know what you think! We finished this room last winter and I'm thisclose to changing it again... haha SO will be so pissed at me....
