1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Flower photos on: April 27, 2008 04:03:29 PM
Here are some flower photos I took recently around my parents' house. I love this time of year (well I would if I hadn't moved to Chicago a few weeks ago... it's supposed to snow tomorrow! What?!)!
Please let me know what you think, and any suggestions you have for me!

These are 3 cherry blossoms (I think!) and 1 dandelion, in case you couldn't tell. Taken with a Nikon D80. My flickr page is here, if you want to see more photos I've taken!
2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Post your unusual flower pictures here! on: November 26, 2007 04:54:52 AM
Post your non-ordinary flower pictures here! These are two I've been liking a lot lately:

I can't get enough of flower pictures! I work at an agricultural high school, and we just got done having a chrysanthemum festival last month (where I took the first picture! It's a chrysanthemum. I'm not sure about the second flower. It was growing wild.). There were soooo many pretty flowers everywhere, so I have about a gazillion flower pictures, plus a bunch of bee ones. It's easy to take a beautiful flower picture, I think, but the challenge is to not make it look like everyone else's!
Comments are welcome, and please post your photos!!

Some of my other favorite pictures on flickr!
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Blue oceany quilt on: August 28, 2007 08:38:01 PM
I made a lap quilt as a wedding present for my friend.

Closeup of the fabrics.
Obviously Denyse Schmidt inspired! I didn't plan it all, just started sewing, so all the squares came out different sizes, and I had to add in some random pieces. But I like that! Then everybody knows it's homemade, right?!
It's supposed to be sort of ocean themed, because he proposed on a boat and they got married on the beach. The front doesn't look to oceany, but the back does:

Closeup of the quilting on the back- they're waves, see!
A detail I embroidered on. There are only two of them, but I didn't want it to be JUST "Suzanne loves Corey," because he loves her, too! So it's "Suzanne loves Corey loves Suzanne"- get it?
It was also my first time doing a real live binding (My grandma taught me to leave the backing longer than the front so you can just fold it over and it's only half the work!), and I finally got a chance to use that clover bias tape maker thing! Yay! I did a blanket stitch on the back to attach the binding, so it's very visible not like a traditional binding stitch, and I embroidered their names instead of the blanket stitch on a small section. I was going to write the date, too, but I couldn't remember it, and didn't want to ask since I just finished it a couple weeks ago & they got married in November. I wanted to pretend like I got it finished on time, and I was just waiting until I saw her in person again to give it to her! I did START it on time, anyhow, way back in September! I did most of it then, and then lost the bobbin holder for my sewing machine. Seriously, the thing just disintegrated into thin air! & I hated the machine so much, I just bought a new one instead of replacing the bobbin holder.
She seemed to be very happy with it. Phew!
4  ASIA / Japan / Fukuoka Craft Stores?? on: February 21, 2007 10:13:40 PM
Hello! I'm going to Fukuoka next week for a few days to get a new Korean visa. I was wondering if anybody knows of any crafty stores there? Anything?! I really want to get some fabric ink for my gocco, too. Are there any chain stores that carry Gocco stuff in Japan? I didn't see any when I went to Tokyo last year, but I wasn't really looking, either!!
5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Fishy photos on: December 11, 2006 05:32:57 AM
Here are two fish photos I've taken that I really like. I'd love some comments on them. Especially the first one. The boyfriend doesn't like it, he says I've made it too dark. I think it looks more arty that way, and I really like the simplicity of just the fish and the leaf. So tell me what you think! Even if it's negative- I can take it!
This was taken in a pond at a palace in Korea:

& this was taken in a pond in Thailand. The fish were very hungry, it seems, because they were crowding around. I love the colors & the sharpness of it:

I actually took both photos with my small digital camera, not my fancy-schmancy SLR.
Here's a link to some of my other fave pictures, in case you're interested!
6  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Quilt from old clothes on: May 02, 2004 09:06:57 AM

I made this out of my old t-shirts, jeans, & other random clothes. It was really simple, it took about 2 or 3 days (not the whole day, or anything! Just a few hours every day, probably). At first I did the thing where you just knot thread at the corners of each square, but then I went back & sewed all the seams, & it looks way better. It's definitely not even, but for not being very good at sewing, & for this being my first quilt, I'm happy!
