1  Rivers and Forests quilt (AKA: The sewing machine killer) in Quilting: Completed Projects by reishka on: January 18, 2012 05:16:42 PM
This quilt has been in the works for about 4 months. I started it at the beginning of the fall semester last year and I just now finished it (just in time for the spring semester to start!). This is just shy of queen-sized, and it nearly killed my sewing machine -- as I was stitching the very last of the stitching around the border my machine seized and just refused to stitch! It's in the shop now, awaiting maintenance... hopefully it's not dead for good!

2  Necklace Board in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by reishka on: September 06, 2011 07:47:49 PM
So, this isn't jewelery that I made, but it is absolutely related to jewelery! I decided to make a necklace board to store my necklaces instead of having them hang off the corner of my mirror. I'm starting to amass a sizable collection, but I wanted something that would hold what I have and still allow me to grow. I ended up with the gorgeous board that will let me almost double my collection! I think I might plan some kind of earring storage to go along with it.

Essentially, I picked up a 26-inch piece of moulding from Home Depot, some stain, some kitchen backsplash tiles, glue, and some cup-hooks. It took about an hour of actual work, and about 24 hours of drying time. It cost about $30 and I have plenty of materials left over to use on other crafts. Cheesy

I love love love this photo... the light really sets off the reddish undertones in the stain that I used! This one is also a little more true to the colours in the tile.
