1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Lego Minifig Costumes on: November 07, 2010 05:53:52 PM
For Halloween this year my boyfriend and I decided we needed to do a set of costumes that went together. This is what we came up with. We intended to have them done well in advance of Halloween Day, but we were working on them until the very last minute...

Please excuse the slight discolouration...

2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Edwin on: January 20, 2010 07:44:25 PM
Meet Edwin.

I've never done anything like this, but needed to have a form of sculpture for a portfolio I'm working on. I dropped by Micheals and picked up the supplies (wire, sprockets, bead, rock) after work yesterday, and got down to business. In total he took be about 3.5 hours of fiddling and learning.

I'm pretty happy with how he turned out, but something does not seem right about the way he is attached to the base? As of now, he is just attached by the silver wire wrapping around the stone, and through the loops in his feet. Can anyone make a suggestion as to how I could improve upon this? Or any suggestions at all?
[Edited to add: He is about 6 inches tall, including the base.]

I think this is the right place to post this, but if not, please feel free to move it Smiley
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Mother's Day 'Cuddle' Quilt on: May 10, 2009 01:48:06 PM
Well, I've been randomly cruising around this site for a few years and only recently have I decided to create an account. I didn't think I'd ever post anything on here, but having just finished up my very first sewing project (unless you count a pillow I made in gr. Cool I couldn't resist.

I mentioned to a friend that I was sort of thinking about making some sort of blanket for my mom for Mother's Day, but wasn't sure where to begin. She kindly walked me through the whole thing - we went and picked out fabrics together, she helped cut all the squares out, etc. She showed me, briefly, how to put it all together and sent me on my way. I was fairly intimidated by this project - and definitely didn't think I'd finished it in time - but I did.
It's very very simple, but I love the outcome.

Sorry there aren't any 'in-progress' shots, but like I mentioned earlier - I was not intending on posting this anywhere Smiley
(Oops - I didn't realize you needed to post 10 times before being allowed to post images. I'm too excited to wait now, so I just included links to the pictures -> Edited to add the actual images.)

This is the top.

This is the bottom.

Here it is all ready to be gifted to my momma.

Hope you like it.

(P.s. I also made one for my boyfriends mom, but its not 100% done yet)
