31  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Celtic Knot Valentine on: February 04, 2009 05:04:51 PM
I made this for my boyfriend at the time. It was my first cross stitch that wasn't based on a pattern I had bought. I worked the pattern out myself based on a necklace charm of a Celtic knot. I thought I did pretty good even if it didn't look exactly like the charm. I was getting it all ready to send to my boyfriend (it had turned into a long distance thing), but my mom saw it and went on a rant about how I couldn't give it away. Turns out that was for the best; the relationship went south, and I got to hang on to something I worked very hard on.



I tried turning the flash off to see if I could get a better picture. I think the next skill I pick up will have to be photography.

32  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Dice Bags on: February 01, 2009 06:00:00 PM
Dice bags have always been something that I make and give away. It's just such a great gift for all the table top gamers in my life because they are easy and useful. This year I wanted to make them extra special. To do this, I looked online and picked up a few basic stitches of embroidery. This is what I ended up with.





This bag was actually a request that I've been sitting on for about a year. I was going to do it in aplique, but this turned out to be a lot easier. Sorry the picture quality isn't so great.

I also made this one for another friend of mine. I think it turned out well.





You can't see it in these pictures, but the inside is also done in a contrasting fabric. I'd get better shots, but these projects have already been sent to their new home.
