I received a pair of awesome cross stitch pieces from puzzled_penguin!

First off is a wonderful rendition of the "Behold the field in which I grow my f---ks!"

And as a bonus, she also did one with my favourite Daryl Dixon quote of all time.



Thank you so much, penguin. I  love them both!

3  Re: What's your OBSESSION Swap GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by RovingAnarchist on: November 13, 2015 06:11:14 AM
I received from Ryn last night, and she nailed it! I told her about my obsession with the vehicles from Mad Max: Fury Road and she ran with it.

This probably won't make sense if you haven't seen the movie, so go watch it!

A Warboys steering wheel:


This is already hanging in my front hall! My friend saw it and immediately decided we needed to make a whole collection- he doesn't craft! Yay for inspiration!

One of the things I asked for on my wishlist was "dashboard art" (to be interpreted in any way my partner saw fit), and Ryn made this cool pendant, which will be gracing my rearview mirror from now on.

and the other side..


Thanks so much, Ryn! It's been super fun crafting for you!

6  Re: Ongoing Yet Another TM Patch Swap R2 in The Swap Gallery by RovingAnarchist on: October 29, 2015 12:17:21 PM
I received two awesome patches from Watsonc7!

First is a Cry Baby themed one- her Johnny Depp is so cute!



And the other is based on a tattoo Gylve Nagell (aka Fenriz) of Darkthrone has. It's perfect!



Here's the tattoo... It's not a great shot, apparently he doesn't like having pictures taken from that side or something. He is by the goofiest black metal musician ever.

7  Modified T-Shirt Swap? in New Swap Theme Ideas by RovingAnarchist on: October 20, 2015 11:37:30 AM
T-shirts breed in your dresser. I'm sure of it. I took all mine out and counted them during "fall cleaning" and was shocked to discover I have over 100! (Really, bands, come up with a more original merch idea; please!)

This lead me to thinking about how many of them I don't wear because they're oversized or whatnot, and how many cool ways there are to modify them. Examples:


Doomgaze made this rockin' bodysuit,




and TheaOz made this super-cute Alabama Chanin inspired top.

I think this would be a fun project for a swap. One modified t-shirt, straight up. (Though I personally might stay away from doing things with band logos unless I'd checked with my partner to make sure they're a fan).

Whatdya think? (This could be rolled into aisy's Update My Wardrobe theme as well...)

8  Reupholstered Mid-Century Modern Armchairs in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by RovingAnarchist on: October 08, 2015 06:20:40 AM
When I applied for my current job, my put all my education on my resume, as you do. One of the things I went to college for back in the day (read: when the earth was young) was furniture design. That was 20 years ago, and I can't say I've done anything with it besides little things for friends and personal projects. So my boss comes to me and says, "You do furniture. I have a pair of chairs that need to be recovered. Will you do it?"

Now, at this point, I'm still on probation at work. I haven't got a contract yet. Thus I have no choice. "Sure thing! I can get it done for you."

This is the point when I started praying. Long story short, even though my job is a combination of office manager and auto shop rat, I believe it was my upholstery skills that got me the contract. Here's what I did:

9  Overall dress- customized! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by RovingAnarchist on: October 05, 2015 07:14:47 AM
As some of you know, I'm a bit of an oddball. I don't go anywhere without 2 things. My chain wallet and my knife. Yup, I'm a redneck...  Tongue

I got on a bit of a kick where I wanted to wear dresses. Dresses hardly ever have pockets, let alone back pockets, and generally don't have belt loops either. That meant I would have to switch to carrying a bag. I hate that. If things aren't attached to me physically, I lose them!

So I made this. It has front pockets for my keys, a back pocket for my wallet, and a place to hang my knife sheath. Ha!



Detail of back pocket (with "formal" wallet chain Smiley)


And this little clip here does nothing more than fasten a heavily interfaced strip of fabric that supports my knife. Apparently I neglected to take an action shot.


The best thing I can say about it is that it fits all my requirements. That said, I may overhaul it to remove the bib part. Turns out I don't like overalls that much.

10  "Jane Victoria" capelet in Knitting: Completed Projects by RovingAnarchist on: October 05, 2015 07:04:07 AM
Do I need a capelet? Not really. Is it my style? Not really. Did I have a lot of fun knitting it? Heck yeah! Technically, this is  called the R.E. Linwelin mantelet, designed by a Ravelry pattern maker named Jane Victoria. The pattern was relatively easy to follow, though I did omit a couple of things. It's meant to have laces up the underside of the sleeves, which I didn't install. I figure no one will see them, and it looked like it would be a pain because ribbons either get hopelessly knotted or come undone constantly.
