No, sorry, that's not it... Atleast it doesn't look like it. The cobra stitch looks like you sort of stick the ends into the other loop... this is one loop, then you drag a loop of the other through the first, and "close" the first loop by pulling the loose thread... and then you do the reverse.. it's really something where the entire movement is only done by your indexfingers

I'm just afraid my neighbors will think I'm either satanic or a tarotcard reader.

Hahaha, wouldn't it be kinda hilarious if they did though? Wink
I'm intending to frame the maps and put them on the wall next to my computer. Smiley Fun thing is that it'll just look like any old drawn maps for those who do not play... But I'm not sure if I can make anything bigger than that for a long time... and then oblivion will come... Smiley

"I'm not disorganized, I'm just creative".....so true of crafters.

Hahaha, yeah... I'm very well organized, until I get inspiration to clean up. Then I can't find anything anymore. Smiley I tend to know very well what's in my piles. Now if I could only remember where I put my thumbtacks...

Oh, I love everyone's craftareas... Smiley
My problem tends to consist in doing every craft I get my hands on, that I'm able to do. So I have a LOT of stuff which I can't really mix with a clear conscience. And thus, the entire appartment is covered. My boyfriend has taken refuge in the bedroom. I'm not allowed to put stuff on his desk in there anymore, not even "temporarily while I just..."

I do have a designated craft area ^^


(Ignore the cardboard sticking out from the cabinet - I have a "kitchen light" under it, but I haven't gotten the thingy you're supposed to put in front of it to protect your eyes..)
I should just use the cabinet better. I put stuff there now and again, but I'm bad at putting stuff back from where I got it, so most things that are supposed to be in there are now here:



where I do most of my crafts Cheesy

and I also occupy the sofa table and the sofa with stuff, 'cause some things are just nice to do while sitting in the sofa...



Does it show that I'm a fake multitasker - keeping a billion projects alive at once, doing snippets on each now and again? ^^

Nice frames Smiley Would have been nice though if you posted the first one in [img ] and [ / img] tags though, and pointed out the others as "detailed photos" or something. It's a lot to click! Cheesy

So. My boyfriend was teasing me about how I never complete our "no-commercials" sign that I'm beading... (I ran out of brown) and I was looking for something to decoupage Smiley So I printed a couple of morrowind things on our inkjet, and then I decoupaged it onto some cardboard!

http://crushinator.melladh.com/M/craft/decoupage/Ingen_reklam_tack.JPG
Apparantly I've got a great decoupage glue/varninsh, 'cause the ink doesn't bleed like it does with common glue and stuff.

It looks a bit like some sort of sign a four-year-old would have on his door, but I still like the results, even if the effect of decoupage more than the composition. My bf doesn't think the mailman will notice the wording.

For my next project, I'm gonna gather all the Heavens Angels (by Jan Romare) comic strips I can find and decoupage our chairs... Cheesy

(for those of you who do play: Yes, that IS a printscreen of corky Cheesy )
