21  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Chain Chomp Hat (pics and pattern!) on: January 17, 2008 10:03:31 PM
That is the most incredible hat ever. Also, I love the chains for looking separate. It looks like the half chain would fall off, but I guess it's knit to the rest of it.
22  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: First Quilt on: January 16, 2008 04:14:37 PM
I think I love you. That is an absolutely gorgeous quilt and it looks like it took forever.  You even put a Spiny Grin. Nobody ever puts those. Their skeletal versions were my favorite as a kid. (I even pretended I had two pet ones. One was named Chestnut.) You made me remember a lot of my favorite enemies looking up what that enemy's official name is  Smiley. Now I want to make something with some enemies on it.

Those are both absolutely gorgeous and you have amazing skill. The pencil color one looks like paint, and I can't believe you can draw so precisely with a quill *_*. The second drawing is my favorite. What kind of art exam was this?

It's very cute  Grin. I really love how the rain drops pool at the bottom of it to make a puddle, and how shiny all the water is.

Wow, that's a beautiful bag and gorgeous fabric. Those are very cute bento belts, too. I thought the little hearts were beads at first, they're so small and even. Did you punch them out of felt? Does the zigzag stitching leave them stretchy? The felt sushi looks really really cute, and that utensil set really is the cutest thing ever. I love the little pigs on the fork ends XD. And salmon furikake is also my favorite, although I like egg almost as much  Smiley.

Come to think of utensils, I've heard that kid sized chopsticks are too small for most adults to use comfortably, except maybe ladies with small hands. They're so tempting though; they fit in the bentos. I just realized I've never eaten with kid sized ones before, but I have small hands anyway. (They fit, I just don't know if it would become uncomfortable to use through a whole meal.) What do you guys think of them?

Thank you so much for posting pictures. As you know everything has been kind of a mess here lately with baby in tummy and us moving and everything. The package is however awesome!  Grin Thank you so much!  Kiss

Haha, you're welcome. Show me what you make with it sometime  Wink. No rush though.

[Most of the clayish things are white so they can be colored or painted on easily. I don't know if you can mix colors into wet floam though. I mixed highlighters into some glow in the dark acrylic paint once, and the color never faded in the wash, though the paint glowed less.]

And thank you guys  Smiley.

I sent this stuff to Gavagai a long time ago (this is the angel package), and then it took a month to get it from the post office because they were having some issues, and then there were holidays. This swap is so old, but I guess I'll post pictures anyway.

That's everything. She wanted a quilting ruler, and I needed to make a surprisingly long box to fit that. I know someone who makes cushioned handles for crochet needles out of floam, and someone else who makes sculptures out of white Crayola clay and then paints them with watercolors. They look really good. Gavagai is having a baby soon so some of the stuff is for babies/children (but she likes Hello Kitty for herself anyway Smiley).


Some detail. (That seal thing is a seventh towel, the kind that grows in water.)


The six towels


Fish beads that look like chicken heads. I thought they were funny, and Gavagai said she liked them from the picture I showed her.


The patterns; most of the reason I took pictures is to remember what they look like. By that token maybe someone who sees it will want to make one.



28  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Re: I made a greek tortoise on: January 14, 2008 05:39:19 AM
That is absolutely the cutest thing ever. I wish I had tortoises in my yard  Smiley. Did you feed them lettuce?

Ok, now time for the pictures  Grin

This is my awesome package from Lillian641! The post office messed with it, and when I got it the package was slit open all the way along the bottom, and being held closed by two rubber bands in a plus shape. Luckily I think nothing was lost Smiley. I was grinning like an idiot and jumping around and hugging that snail as soon as I opened it. How did you know I like realistic land snails the best? It's perfect, and the stitching skill on it is completely astounding O_O. The whole bag looks completely professional, and I love the tie dye fabric the snail is made of. She also sent me an oshibori case since I don't have one (I love the purple  Grin), and a gigantic lunch ice pack that can also be heated, since I'd never heard of those except for injuries before. (Wow, now I can have hot lunch too. I'll definitely use it  Grin.)


Look at how huge that bag is  Grin!  (mess included for size reference  Tongue)

(Aoum aoum aoum leftover cookies.)

This is the side; it folds up nicely and is still huge.


The inside has a velcro closure and two ginormous pockets that are lined with a white material that feels waterproof. It also has this label. (Do you have an embroidery machine?)



Here's the pockets with stuff in them, although THIS full even this huge bag can't close (but keeps my bento flat anyway, even while held).
linked because I'm going overboard on pictures

It can close easily packed like this though, and even keeps my fat bento flat. Last time I packed it, it was in a tall lunchbag and only fit on its side, and stuff falling out over the barrier made my food into a mess, so I'm ecstatic about this staying flat.


It looks really cute closed. (This is with the above stuff in it in that position.)


Then when I was taking pictures of it, I noticed something else: insanely good embroidery hidden in green thread on the back. I have no idea how you did that with a sewing machine freehand. There are two flowers and a butterfly, and the right flower has a sakura petal and a leaf floating by its stem. These pictures needed to be huge to be able to see the well-hidden embroidery, so I'll just link to them. The bag is not wrinkly, the right flower just goes into the handle a bit so I tried to fold it to get the whole thing in the picture. Both flowers have stems and the left one has two leaves on the stem.  (edit: Photobucket and craftster both resize my huge picture of all of them, so I put more pictures.)

the whole back ** a better pic of the right flower ** the falling petal and leaf closer ** the butterfly closer ** the left flower

Thank you so much Lillian!  Grin  Grin  Grin

I got Lillian's package in the mail today and I'm so excited! It's the most awesome thing ever, I love it so much.  Grin  Grin

I thought I was going to visit my friend today, but turns out she thought she was visiting me (and that works out better), so I'm cleaning house and cooking like mad right now (I can't even look at the package photos above this post XD;; ), but I'll post pictures soon.
