1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Amigurumi Tenth Doctor Who on: February 25, 2008 02:32:00 PM
I think I've spent too long on Ravelry, it almost didn't occur to me to post this here.

This is my version of Snuffykin's awesome Tenth Doctor Who Pattern. He has no mouth yet cos I'm out of pale pink but otherwise he's done. Can't wait to start on the other characters.

2  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / First Quilt - Goth Wedding on: September 21, 2007 11:50:36 AM
I've been drooling over your amazing quilts for months but was scared to try it. Then my best friend decided to get married and I finally had an excuse to give it a go.

I know the colours and fabrics wouldn't be to most peoples taste but I felt they suited the happy couple.

This was waaaay more work and way more fun than I expected, took about 6 solid days and killed my sewing machine.

Oh yeah its crease cos it got mailed from England to Norway.. I kinda misjudged the size it'd be and couldn't fit it in my luggage. It's queen size Cheesy

Now to make a coipy for myself. Thanks for all the inspiration!

*So we are a sickley crew, and when ilnesses and diseases flare up, it is not fun. Heck, the day to day of it isnt fun. So lets bond together to make the best of the situation. Im not going to make a mininum or max requirement for items to swap, because it will vary from disease to disease. But I think 2 items at least. But please talk to your partner about how much you are going to swap, so it will be fair, and no-one will feels like: Oh I wish I've send more...
*We could make each other some "survival kits" may include: a diary or log book for symptoms, a nice holder for any medical equiptment or medicine, recipies, and anything else you can think up. But also something to cheer them up! This could be a new craft to learn, or something they like but can't do.
*The questionnaire is intentionally short because this swap works best if all the partners communicate, if you don't want to talk to your swap partner please don't sign up. The best way to understand someone's needs is through conversation!

Sorry I couldn't wait til someone else started the thread. I just got a top whorl spindle and finally discovered how to spin proper lengths of yarn! Well more than I've ever spun before, 67 yards.

"Amortentia" made with "Love Potion" by Loop @ Etsy. 3oz of merino top in maroon and hot pink, periwinkle alpaca, and a lavender blend of wool and angora, topped off with streaks of tussah silk in magenta and deep purple.


 Hadn't set the twist when this was taken.

8  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Another First Hand Spun Post... on: April 12, 2007 02:52:54 PM
You guys probably get sick of seeing these but I felt the need to show off beg for reassurance...

I got this spinning kit a couple of days ago. My first attempt was more than pathetic-



Second seems slightly better, it kinda looks like yarn and I managed to knit a swatch with it, but its a bit... stiff... dunno how to describe it...



This was my third attempt, it looks much better on the spindle, but a bit manky in skein form...



any tips on getting it better? Any way of getting rid of the horrific smell when it gets wet?
