1  Re: Winter Nerd Battles: December 1, 2015 - February 29, 2016 ~*Join Anytime*~ in Craftalongs by moriarT on: January 11, 2016 05:18:19 PM
A month and a half late but I have finally risen from the depths of my crafty slump to post a couple of small projects. I am still battling away a cross stitch piece that will be amazing when I finally finish - it is really hard work doing all those tiny, precise and counted stitches, can't wait to finish so I can get back to my own style of messy free handed embroidery.

So for now just a couple of things I made this week.

Prompt:  Red Alert! I will go down with this ship
Team: Randomizer
Bonus Points: NA
Project Name: Cannibalism inspired tea towel
Project Link: NA
Brief Description: I stenciled this as a gift for my boyfriend on his birthday. We share a love of the TV show Hannibal (okay, okay, maybe obsession is a better word for it...) The show is full of delicious looking food, and a whole lot of cannibalism puns. I want to make a whole series of these tea towels because it was so much fun.

Bonus Points: NA
Project Name: POP figure
Project Link: NA
Brief Description: I love creating scenes with my pop figures and photographing them. Each year I make a little birthday party scene to print and frame as a gift for my boyfriend. This one is some of my favourite TV serial killers (idea for next photo, lots of destroyed cereal boxes and fake blood... cereal killers...)

I got an amazing package from roler today, just as we were beginning to worry about how long it was taking to get here! It was definitely worth the wait.
First up is this super cute felt pin, combining my love of skulls and embroidery. I shall wear it with crafty pride!

And then! My absolute fave, this great applique hoopla featuring one of my favourite bits from one of my favourite books - American Gods by Neil Gaiman. It always makes me giggle, and I can't wait to put this (as well as the other dozen undisplayed hoopla I have sitting on my desk...) up on my wall!

Thank you so much roler! This was a fantastic swap.

3  UFOH - NO! oh yes! in Needlework: Completed Projects by moriarT on: October 28, 2015 02:03:18 AM
This is what I have been working on the past few weeks. I am really in love with her, even though I feel a little cross eyed after french knotting her dress! I've had this image saved for years and I am glad I finally got around to it, I love it!

Prompt:  Big time + we don't need roads
Team: randomizer
Bonus Points: UFO (because it includes a UFO? No, because I've spent most evenings the past two weeks working on this!)
Project Name: UFOH NO! Hoopla
Project Link:
Brief Description: I have had this picture saved to my computer for years planning to stitch it up. YEARS. I finally did it, and I am so glad I did. I love it! What's more, I made it for myself so I can admire it forever. I love the little pop of red for her lipstick. BTTF bonus because I get a real 50s vibe from the image, and Marty McFly pretended to be an alien when he visited his father in the 50s.

Prompt: October - Chupacabra
Team: Randomizer
Bonus Points: UFO
Project Name: Goat skull hoopla
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=441063.0
Brief Description: Skull of the chupacabras meal of choice. Black thread on white cotton, six in hoop. This thing drove me a little nutty, but I love the finished piece, spent well over a week working on it (those damn horns!) hence the UFO bonus points

7  Goat skull in Needlework: Completed Projects by moriarT on: October 12, 2015 01:54:48 AM
I finally decided to make myself a hoopla! After about three years of embroidery I finally made one for myself. The main skull part I whipped up in a couple of hours. The horns took what feels like an eternity. The line work in the horns isn't perfect, if I were making it for someone else I probably would have unpicked and restitched them a million times. But I don't think the imperfections are too noticeable. Anyway, I am really happy with it over all, I think I want to make myself a whole collection of skulls now.


Thanks for looking!

Wow yet another beautiful package - the charm bracelet is stunning, as it the scarf. As is everything in the lovely gallery.

This is the first half of the package made this for samash90, I made it and sent it while I was on holiday recently in New Zealand, where she lives. I know she has received it, but unfortunately it has been a little hard to contact her lately. The wood I collected from a really beautiful beach, I sanded and waxed it to get it smooth and shiny. This is the first time I have made something like this and it was a little hard to part with, I definitely think I am going to work on one for myself too.

I am having a whole lot of fun stitching up my design this month. Driving myself a little batty with all the silly tiny stitches I decided I absolutely needed to do. Here is a little sneak peek to see what I have been up to...

Once again I have fallen so far behind at commenting on all the great things in this thread, you all are really such a talented group of crafters. I love seeing and reading about everyones new creations and catching up on the know your nerd and nerd of the month posts.

Prompt: October - jackalope
Team: randomizer
Bonus Points: NA
Project Name: Magic wand
Project Link: NA
Brief Description: Made predominately with driftwood and wire, two things that don't usually go together. I made this for my partner in the back to Hogwarts swap and it has been received, I made and sent it while I was on holiday in her country. The wood I collected from a really beautiful beach, I sanded and waxed it to get it smooth and shiny. This is the first time I have made something like this and it was a little hard to part with, I definitely think I am going to work on one for myself too.
