1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / this is not a pipe (mario magritte) on: October 30, 2008 05:46:36 PM
hi! I finished this stitching last week, I'm really happy with how it turned out...I'll let the pictures do the talking. the original idea came to me from schnerby, but the pattern/colors/stitching were done by me.





reference - magritte painting

2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Copper Coin Ring on: August 14, 2008 07:30:50 PM
well, I posted a quarter ring a couple weeks ago...here is my most recent attempt. Its made from a canadian large cent from 1919 (only very slightly larger than a US quarter). Its 95% copper, so it might turn a finger green...I've read that you can coat the inside with clear nail polish to prevent it...we'll see. took about 3-4 hours or so to complete...

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / double sided coin ring! on: August 01, 2008 05:57:30 PM
well, heres my first attempt at a coin ring...its a little different than the normal spoon method of flattening out the reeds...it is a little wavy due to my inability to hammer evenly, but still has an interesting look to it...

next one will be better!







let me know what you think!

edit: I almost forgot...I was inspired to figure out how to make these by the work of http://www.spiritualflyer.com/services.html. He makes AMAZING rings...and theyre actually pretty cheap. ($35-$45)

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Duck Hunt (nintendo) Cross Stitch! + pattern on: December 09, 2007 10:19:50 AM
I just completed a duck hunt cross stitch...It was completed on gray cloth to show a difference between the white stitching and the background (even though it doesnt show up very well in the pictures)

And I also provided charts and directions (for this as well as other duck hunt sprites) in this posting on my blog (its a video game cross stitch blog)...

ENJOY!
6  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Nintendo Punchout! x stitch (1st stitching attempt) on: May 29, 2007 02:24:45 PM



(thats a dime for scale)

i think i probably should have bit off a smaller project for my first one...oh man that sea of orange was so fun...

i created the pattern from game screenshots...I made them with the intention of making one for each character, but that took a long time to do the first, so we'll see.

if anyone wants one of the patterns (i have every character) feel free to pm me...

UPDATE: All patterns posted on my new blog...

i hope this is in the right thread...

well, they arent painted yet but here are some tetris bookshelves that i made...they are not attached to each other so they can be rearranged into different configurations...

i think i got the idea from somewhere a few years ago...but i cant remember for the life of me where...if you know where let me know so i can give them credit...
