1  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / New York Foody Beauty on: June 10, 2012 05:01:37 AM
I just wanted to show off this mini art quilt I made for the MAQ swap.  I made the quilt round, with plastic brake hose as a frame inside the border.  Every piece of fabric is a fruit or vegetable.  Included are bananas, lemons, chile peppers, raspberries, blueberries, watermelon, carrots, cucumbers and one bitty piece of garden medley.

I love the way swapping encourages me to try new things and push my limits.  This was my first paper piecing.

 

Each Quarter was a different pattern, but I made each one to accept the same center piece to tie them together.






2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Heartstrings on: April 27, 2012 05:16:27 PM
Embroidery project for anything goes needlework swap.  The piece was adapted from a pattern "heartstrings" purchased on etsy.
The gentleman has crocheted a heart as evidenced by his crochet needle.  The lady has embroidered "J+J" on the heart with her embroidery needle.

3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Creepy cute monster on: April 27, 2012 05:05:51 PM
Here is a monster I created for a creepy cute private swap.  Believe it or not I started with a poppet pattern.  Added a "little"  facial and body sculpting (check out the anatomically correct bosom)  The arms and legs came from the old "foster kids"  doll patterns.

5  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Blue Rug on: February 16, 2012 04:14:35 PM

I finally figured out how to connect this knit rope I'm using as weft so I get seemless joins.  This is my first rug using this technique and it looks so good without the bulges.  This is my 4th rug.  I got a little fancy with the knot work on the fringe.  The warp is 8/4 cotton carpet warp 12 ends per inch but double threaded every other dent.

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Basket Weave on: February 06, 2012 05:23:25 PM


I made this basket weave dishcloth from a link in the 50-dishcloths thread.  It called for 4/2 but I used an 8/4 rug warp.  It was fun to make, but the instructions get a little iffy when it comes to the edging, and you have to do a little adjusting.

How does a #10 bedspread weight crochet thread compare to weaving thread,ie an 8/4 rug warp?
