I made a beaded dragonfly before too! I like yours better. Here's a picture of mine, it's the pink one. The other one I bought at the Renn Faire for $1. (I just wanted another one, didn't make it to sell or anything.)
One of these days I'm going to have to make myself one of these half print, half lace rib cage shirts. I've seen so many of yours that I'm just going to need one! They are just so awesome. I've literally gone to your profile and looked through all the pages of projects you've posted on Craftster, I have to say you are one of my favorite crafters here! If only because you've posted enough for me to be inspired time and time again!
I've started a quilt like this but with a babies onesies. I've cut 4x4 inch squares out of them. Then I stopped because we were going to get some fabric to make a border all around every square to make the whole thing bigger, but now it seems that I'm going to just sew the squares together and make a nice sized border. I've told my older brother about this idea but it seems that they are giving their onesies to another couple with a slightly younger baby... Oh well, their loss!
Oh my goodness! It looks sooo amazing. I wish that I had restarted mine! I started making a quilt, instead! I'm going to have to invest in some 40 inch cables, before I try making one of these again. It was too overwhelming on my 32s. Just seeing yours finished gives me the incentive to try again, thank you so much for posting! It looks beautiful with all of those colors.
Awesome! If they're that quick to knit, I wouldn't mind giving knit items away! Haha I learned how to knit from my grandmother and she is so fast that she donates just about everything she makes. She makes a LOT of baby stuff. If a friend buys me the yarn I don't mind making up a hat or scarf for them, otherwise nuh uh you're not getting all that time I spent knitting... Unless it's xmas. I think it's because I had such a hard time reading patterns before.
Omg the dice in the table number dish! That right there is a detail I'll have to share with my BF. We aren't engaged yet but the one thing I've ever planned for my wedding is that I'll be wearing a red pirate queen dress, instead of white. Love the non-traditional weddings!
Oh my god, I love ALL of you. Basically what happens is the fact that he got a job and I haven't yet, so both he and his mother expect me to do everything for them. and yeah, I think I should be doing more around the house because I'm not out there making money, but when they start leaving orange peels and empty ice cream containers in the sink and complain about tooth aches and they can't possibly get up to throw that kind of stuff away I just go back to my dads. Luckily, though I'm nearly 21, I still have a room here. (Don't think I haven't been trying, I honestly think I'm going to have to move in order to get a job. The problem with that is, you know, no money!)
It's just so nice to have anyone on my side for once. He stopped wearing his work shirt with the patches tacked on at the corners (I didn't have time to do it better that last time before he left for work) and only wears it when there will be other security officers who could rat him out for not having the patches. His other shirt doesn't have any patches on it because they never gave him any to sew on. Since I gave him the ultimatum of needing to find someone else to do it he has been very careful. Really, he sits around at work looking at monitors and then when he gets up to do his walk around, he'll lean against a wall for some reason or another and catch the patch on something. When they were getting ripped off there was no way a person was ripping them off because he was working alone. Anyways... I'm simply NOT sewing them on anymore. The sewing machine I have is a beginner one and I'm not risking sewing through patches with it, I've sewn them on with tiny stitches too many times, I've tried iron on. I can only imagine us having kids in the future who will of course join boy scouts and I will have to deal with this then. Hopefully like 15 years in the future, though. Thank you all for your help, and sorry that I just decided not to use it since I'm not sewing them on anymore. I really appreciate you all taking your time to reply!
