102  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / First wheel plied yarn on: March 20, 2010 06:10:06 PM
Hi everyone!  I've been working on a spindle for just over a year but I recently bought a Kiwi.  I've been taking spinning classes with Beth Smith at The Spinning Loft in Howell, MI for the last four Saturdays (today was our last class, sniff) and last week we plied the mishmash singles we'd been spinning up for practice.  This is mine:

It's made of a multicolored roving and also some creamy merino top, Corriedale, and a few other things to make a Frankenply.  Sorry the pic is a bit dark.

This one is spindle plied, and uses the first single I ever made (it was lost for a long time) so it's very, very chunky.  It's all merino.

I'm loving spinning and making yarn.  Today we got to spin silk and OMG.  I brought home 2 oz of dyed Tussah to do...um...something with - just not sure what yet!  If you're anywhere close to Michigan, I can't say enough great things about Beth and what she's got going on there and I really encourage you to take some of her classes.  Plus she has great guest teachers in all the time.

I think I love you a little.

This is fantastic.  Father Ted is one of my favorite shows (my fav. episode being "Kicking Biship Brennan Up the Arse") and I wish there was a way to get the inflection from Father Jack's "I'm sooooooooooooooo sorry!" complete with chipmunk noises onto fabric.

Feck!  *love*

So awesome!  I love the hair so much.  I want to pet it.

Yep, it's on felt. 

I think OMGWTFBBQ is one of my favorite LJ comments and/or tags.  The BBQ on the end just kills me.  Cheesy

Just finished and framed this one; the flash makes the pink look PINK(!!!!) but it's your typical Barbie hot pink.  Smiley

Thanks for all the kind words!  Cheesy

I free-handed the little guy, with input from my beau along the way.  I like robots because they can be made of incredibly simple shapes and still emote beautifully.  I'm working on another robot piece currently.
109  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Robot and his red balloon (with added pic of Mr. Robot in a frame) on: September 23, 2009 05:37:13 AM

Sorry for the dim photo - I took it last night before bedtime.

He's on felt and about 5x7.  I still need to frame him.  Tongue

Edit: He's framed!  Ignore the price sticker; I have to get some goo gone to get the darned thing off. Bah.

110  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Dolls from "9" - where'd you get those peepers? on: September 22, 2009 03:25:30 PM
Have you seen "9" yet?  I fell in love with the movie and the characters.  Has anyone started a project based on the movie?  I'm tempted to create some burlap sack or linen dolls either of the characters or based on them but I'm a bit daunted (and excited!) about adding metal objects to the little punks to get the look right.  I'm particularly curious about how I might fashion those whizzbang eyes.  Any suggestions?
