1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Re-drafting Princess Line into Cotehardie on: February 28, 2009 06:33:45 PM
OK, I am making a cotehardie and I've outgrown (and lost) the pattern I had.  So, I've got a basic princess-line pattern which I want to tweak.  I've figured out how to change the sleeves, but I  know that the princess seams that start at arm scye are not period.  How do I shift them?  Are princess seams that start at the shoulder more period?  I am pretty busty, so I need all the fabric I can get Wink
2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Miniature Illumination with Gold Leaf on: August 18, 2008 02:52:43 PM
My son and I took a workshop in medeival illumination this summer.  I made this for a swap and I really wanted to share since I am quite proud of it.  It turned out a lot better than I thought, esp. since I'm more used to pagan subject matter.

It measures 1.5" X 1.5" and the colours are a lot more rich, but as you can tell from the white mat, my photo didn't turn out that well.  My son was impressed by the fact that we were using 23 carat gold - and I must say, it does quite a lot of bling.  I also painted it on calfskin vellum which adds its own richness to the colour which doesn't translate into photos. 

I'm working on a few more pieces and I'll post them when they are done (but these I am keeping  Grin )
3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Medieval Swap anyone? on: August 01, 2008 07:05:00 PM
I was wondering if anyone would be interested in a medieval-themed swap?  There are so many beautiful objects in all the different crafting areas to make, I think that it would be neat.  It could either be medieval inspired or items based on ones found during the period.  Ideas anyone?
4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Ephemera swap? on: October 28, 2007 07:17:05 PM
Hey, I've been sorting through my things and am finding tons of stuff that either have too much of or I've changed my style or want to free into the world...Is anyone interested in another Ephemera Swap?  It would be fairly easy, decide on a size of envelope and pack it full.  Postage shouldn't be too bad, since it can go as lettermail.

5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Zombie Girl on: March 19, 2007 08:35:58 AM
I've finally got a pic of my latest creation (who flew off to join her new friend last month).  She was fun to make, now I've got to make ones for all my girls!

6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Cute Husband's Sewing Technique on: October 28, 2006 12:54:57 PM
I didn't know where else to post this, but I thought you all could appreciate how determined my sweetie is to "do it himself"...

Yes, that is my honey using a construction tape as well as a BROOM to make himself a robe for Samhain/Halloween!  Bless....
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Casting on for ribbed socks on: July 30, 2006 12:58:26 PM
I have fallen in love with knitting socks, HOWEVER, using the long-tail cast on is making my ribbing non-stretchy.  Not a good thing for the top of your socks.  Any pointers on CO methods for ribbing?  Thanks
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Felted Skully Goodness on: July 21, 2006 03:21:10 PM
I originally posted this in the bag forum, but I just wanted to share my fave new bag that took me forever to knit (since it's been so hot!) but only 1 wash cycle to felt!  I love it, but I think I'll wait until it cools off a bit to wear it around town  Wink

I used the pattern from  Hello Yarn.  I love this site http://www.helloyarn.com/bigskulltote.htm!

10  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Medieval plaque find on: June 25, 2006 08:48:59 PM
I found this at the local thrift store and thought it was pretty despite the horrific paint job:

But since it's kinda small (3" x7" aprox) I want to do something more than just repainting it.  I was going to do a stone faux finish, but I don't know if I should work it into a shrine, a large relief painting, I don't know.  I don't think that it can go outside, it looks like plaster....

Any help would be appreciated...thanks!
