1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / silliness on: May 16, 2010 11:49:13 PM
well this is definitely not the most technical thing but it was definitely fun. i took in a ferret last month to be foster mom to and long story short i have adopted him. he is elderly and doesn't like my other ferrets because they are too rambunctious and he hasn't had the best of life. so i've been desperately trying to find his passion and i found out it is my boyfriend's socks Grin i decided he needed a bedtime buddy so i just whipped this up real quick out of one of my boyfriend's socks. i put a jingle toy inside the stuffing and the embroidery well uhm i don't think the foot of a sock is the best material but it was fun nonetheless. it wasn't thought out at all, i'm sure he'll demolish it shortly but hey i thought it was a cute gift for a ferret Cheesy




here's a vid of his reaction for fun if anyone's interested

2  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / First Attempt Embroidery *blush* on: April 03, 2010 12:44:32 AM
Okay so I've sat here for awhile admiring all your work and been wondering if i should post my first attempt at this embroidery stuff tonight so here goes *deep breath*
I got one of the SS kits and decided to sit down with a movie and just try one section of my soon to be doodled all over pillowcase.
Gosh, I started out with split stitch, then went on to back stitch, then tried chain and had an utter fail and tried to recover and then tried a stem stitch which looks really weird...oh and a satin one too which I found to be easiest for me. I had no plans for what stitch where, I just basically wanted to learn as much as I could as fast as I can and kind of had an ADD episode as I was doing it Wink








I'm gonna go back and add more of the Kurt Halsey patterns to the pillowcase (this is just one corner). My hope is as I move throughout the pillowcase the stitching will get better but I wanted to document my first official try. Please be gentle with me Cheesy
