Check out what Bunnie Boo made me- It's a cross stitch Spock Hoopla with Shakespearean extras, a magnetic bookmark and quote buttons. Smiley

Check out what amigurl55 sent me.

First, a group shot

The Curious embroidery was inspired by a pin from my pinterest board. The other Hoopla hoopla came from a hoopla amigurl55 made that I admired. The hoopla character came from an episode of SpongeBob. Here is amigurl55's original thread

She also sent an amazing tea wallet using embroidery themed fabric. I've been wanting a tea wallet too and it's full of tea, perfect for this rainy day.

The hooplas proudly hang on my art/needlecraft wall above my baby bed full of plushies. Sorry the picture is dark. Lighting isn't the greatest in the bedroom. We can't hang any ceiling lighting, only floor lamps. The Hooplas looks beautiful and they are a nice addition to my wall.

RikaHeart, the shirt looks great on you. I'm so glad it fit. My husband almost stole that too. I'm glad the bracelet protected you!

Here is a picture of the necklace and don't worry, I'm working on another one

I'd love to take credit for the photo edit but sadly, I found the picture on pinterest and I'm uncertain of the source. But RikaHeart had to have it because her favorite TMNT is Raphael.

115  My first attempt at Embroidery in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by Helena Puck on: February 28, 2012 06:08:30 AM
I've been wanting to try out embroidery for awhile because I think it is beautiful and I like the freedom embroidery allows; however, I was nervous because I'm a long time cross stitched used to following a specific pattern. I wasn't sure how to make the stitches the same lengths or what type of stitches are used for different designs.

I picked up a kit from Sublime Stitching around December and I've been staring at it, thinking I was going to mess it up. Gathering up the courage, I started on kit yesterday. I used the transfer sheet and ironed the picture of Our Lady of Guadalupe onto a piece of white fabric which resulted in beautiful Mary imprint on the white fabric, as well as the cover of my ironing board.

I used a combination of backstitching, slip stitching and stem stitching. I really like split stitching. Sublime stitching include a nice little reference sheet and the three stitching techniques and chain stitching. I also liked that the transfer sheet was reusable.

I actually meant to add beads around the sun's rays but I was so excited about how quickly I was able to finish the completed picture I framed it immediately using adhesive board and a glassless frame.

Check it out! Oodelally made me my own little Wonder Woman booklet full of great images of Wonder Woman through history with inspiration quotes and a little removable bookmark with a quote on Friendship. Check out Oodelally made embellishing and papercrafty skills!

Here are the list of quotes included:
"Of all People, you know who I am... who the world needs me to be. I'm Wonder Woman."
"This is the Golden Lasso. Besides being made from an indestructible material, it also carries with it the power to compel people to tell the truth. Use it well and with compassion" - Queen Hippolyte.
"Go in Peace my daughter, and Remember that, in a world of ordinary mortals, you are a Wonder Woman" - Queen Hippolyte
"If it means interfering in an ensconced, outdated system, to help just one woman, man or child. . . I'm willing to accept the consequences."
"Please take my hand. I give it to you as a gesture of friendship and love and of faith freely give. I give you my hand and welcome you into my dream."

Here is the cover on the postage envelope. I'm planning on using those great Koala stamps for a later craft project too.

The pictures of each page of the booklet will be posted on my blog asap.

I just received my package from pincushion_queen. She sent two beautiful plastic shrink mermaid brooches. The images were on my "products I love" pinterest. One of the things I collect are mermaids and I also mentioned that I needed to replace my brooches.

I love these brooches. I can wear them separate or together.

Thanks pincushion_queen! Love the postcard too.

Check out what I got from shdwstrm
Here are Smurf magnets and smurfy embroidered towels she sent.

I love that she include Sassett. I rarely see anything of my favorite smurf, Sassett. Everything is going to look great in my smurfy kitchen.

Here's the Group shot:
I love the chocolate candies, especially the chocolate smarties!

Here's a better photo of the Greedy Smurf painting. He is now hanging over the bulletin board in the kitchen.

And, here is She-Ra I think she'll hang in the dining room for all to enjoy or in my craft corner. I'm not sure yet.

I love my new paintings and goodies. Thank you so much shdwstrm!

119  Valentine Scrapbook in Scrapbooking: Completed Projects by Helena Puck on: February 08, 2012 09:31:43 AM
For Christmas, I got this new tool, the Cinch. I've been practicing binding the kids artwork. Since I'm a bit of a packrat and I've held onto all the boys school artwork for years, I decided to make a couple of spiral bound books full of the the kids art. The covers and backs with the cute little laminated flowers I get each year for Mother's Day.  The boys really enjoyed seeing their work preserved but now they want their own scrapbooks.

Using the covers of this years valentine card box and the bits of construction paper in their cabinet, I made this little book which my son took over and started filling with cutouts and old valentine's day cards. The only difficulty I had was trimming the construction paper.

Now to make a Toy Story and Cars Valentine Card journal.

Here is the front and back:

120  Chainmaille Byzantine Bracelets in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Helena Puck on: February 08, 2012 09:16:29 AM
I just started working on bracelets using the Byzantine fold. I'm really happy with how my two bracelets turned out. I really like the clasps because the coils are reinforced. I used the tutorial in Visual Quick Tips- Wire Jewelry.

I love using colorful enameled wire.
