1  Slytherin will help you on your path to greatness. in Needlework: Completed Projects by alison.anne on: September 09, 2012 05:58:56 PM
I made this for my niece, who is crazy obsessed with Harry Potter generally, and Slytherin specifically.



Snape, Draco, and Lucius Malfoy are from a http://www.etsy.com/shop/weelittlestitches pattern. I made up one in the same style of my niece.

The fonts are from a big book of alphabets I picked up at Michael's, and the border is adapted from a 'wavy' border I found online. I added heads and tails to make snakes.

Here it is framed:

According to my niece, it's "THE BEST THING EVER."  Grin

2  Retro CBC Logo in Needlework: Completed Projects by alison.anne on: August 27, 2012 08:17:40 AM
Here's another image conversion of mine. This is the retro version of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation logo. The CBC makes government-funded TV and radio, which I listen to all day long.



Some progress pics:





I'm thrilled with how this turned out. I'm getting much faster and cleaner with my stitching, which is super satisfying.

3  How's my research going? @&*$% you, that's how it's going. (Cuss word warning!) in Needlework: Completed Projects by alison.anne on: August 19, 2012 07:58:15 AM


Uncensored version under the spoiler tag.

I'm so happy with how this turned out. I'm working on a PhD, and this is one of those questions that we all ask each other all the time, even though the answer is almost never "Brilliantly! I get up every day chomping at the bit to transform my field, nay, the world!" This is a dream answer for those times when someone's only asking so that they can feel better about how little they've accomplished when they hear you've done even less.

I made the pattern with pencil crayons and paper this time, instead of a program. I was originally intending to continue that green stripe out to the edges and make a circle around the rim, but that turned out to be too hard, so I improvised some flower clusters to fill the space.

Gave it to a friend in my program, and she loves it. Grin

4  Stitch ALL the Things! in Needlework: Completed Projects by alison.anne on: July 13, 2012 04:32:24 PM
Hi all--I hope it's ok to just barge in and start posting. Please let me know if I'm posting in the wrong spot or am going against board etiquette.

Here's a link to my shot at a "Stitch ALL the Things" version of the Hyperbole and A Half meme.



I'm a total noob at embroidery--this is my second ever cross stitch project, and my first attempt at making my own pattern (using a generator). I'm very happy with it, but I've already got a big long list of things to do differently next time. I've got progress pics up over at procrastistitching.tumblr.com, if anyone's interested.

Cheers!
